I'm down 2 pounds from this time last week! I promise, all that has changed is increased diligence to tracking. I may go back to Simply Filling again next week (when it rolls around), but I am glad that I am paying more attention to what I eat. Proper portions, following the Good Health Guidelines, making sure I write down all that I eat.... sure, it takes time, but I can't argue with the results!
The one thing I need to do this week is to eat more veggies than fruit servings. This past week, it seems to have been the opposite -- not that fruit is a bad choice (I could be going face first into a bag of Doritos, right?). But my gut feeling is that more veggies would be even better.
Last weekend, I baked a pumpkin for the very first time -- most of the time, pumpkin for consumption comes out of a can! "Real" pumpkins are for decorating! But roasting/baking this pumpkin was so easy. I pureed it and then put it in the fridge.... so I think I'll eat some of it tonight for dinner. YUM!
I'm also on a new exercise routine -- the knees weren't always enjoying the lunges, so Dave worked up a new routine with some knee strengthening exercises as well. And we've added some static poses to help with balance and muscle use. That first night kicked my rear end! But I'm really looking forward to using them more often!
So if you're struggling this week, think about this:
1. What do you want to happen?
2. What do you need to do to make it happen?
3. Can you do it?
4. Will you do it?
GO FORTH AND CONQUER!!!
