Sometimes it would be easier to give up.

And that about says how I am feeling today. Yes I just want to give up and eat a LOT of chocolate and bread and crackers and chips. I want to..."Have the guts to just get really fat" {fried green tomatoes} and then after my little pity party I sigh and keep at it. My friend says that she is a work in progress. I LOVE IT! I am a work in progress.

Last week

The Family weigh in is on Sunday. I'm going to hit the food journal and exercise HARD this week. Yes I realize I should have been doing this all along and I have just not consistently. One way I think I am going to get some exercise in is riding my bike with the stroller down to the high school for Remington's football camp. Then the hour that he has camp I'm going to walk/run the track. Am I nuts?? My plans may change as the week goes on. Camp is at 9 am I think I'll be ok with the heat, but the up hills on the way home may just kill me.

Days like today!!

You know its days like today when I get on the scale and see a lower number that make me happy!!
Last week I was in the..200's

Its nice to know that watching what I eat
and exercising pays off slowly but it is!
I had given up on winning the family biggest loser contest.
I may still be in it!!
My 2 sister in laws think so.

Healthy options

I really have been trying to make healthier choices in the foods that I eat. Some days are better than others. I try to but wheat bread, bagels and tortillas. My kids complain so I occasionally buy white but I don't eat it. I have been counting calories and exercising but not consistently. Weight loss is an up hill battle. Very frustrating and not a lot of progress. One thing that I have discovered that I really like is hummus. It makes a really yummy sandwich spread. It is a lot healthier that mayo or miracle whip. My favorite one currently is the Sabra Spinach and Artichoke Hummus. It is delicious with crackers and even veggies! The only problem is its kind of pricey but isn't that how all healthy foods are?

Superman and Bananas

There is this ab move in the P90X work outs. You lay on your stomach and lift your arms and legs off the floor and "fly" like superman then he tells you banana and you flip over on your back and lift your legs off the floor and arms in the shape of a banana.
It works your core good and I am sore!

Sore again

Its day 2 and yes I am sore again. I did the "core" workout for P90X  yesterday and my core is not that sore maybe I did it wrong, but my legs and back are feeling it! I also took my measurements for arms, thighs, hips, and stomach. I weighed in again and now have a pretty good starting point. I think I need slightly heavier weights then I have been using. I'm thinking 5 pounds. Right now I have 2 pound ones. They are great for somethings but I'm a little stronger in other areas.
