I took Robin's challenge to heart and had a perfect score Tuesday (Monday too!) I did have to ask Robin a few questions about points. Does mayo count as added fat if your tuna recipe requires it? We said no (plus I used light mayo). Does a chocolate rasberry Balance Bar eaten before class count as sweets? We said no because it was used for fuel.
“I will not give up”
This weekend was a bit of a challenge for me. Although I made most of my meals this weekend, I also went to out to eat. It wasn't easy with peer pressure and delectable desserts around me, I gave in to temptation.
“High Score Challenge”
OK, who's up for this challenge? What I'd like everyone to do is go through your log book and write down the highest score you've ever recorded for each Healthy Habit. Then today, beat that score (or match it if it's a perfect score) for each Habit. The goal is to get your highest score ever. Today! Let us know how you do!
“8-Week Weight Loss on Vacation”
I hope everyone stayed on track during Week Five even though we didn't have our weekly meeting. I was in Costa Rica, of course, but managed to do fairly well with my Healthy Habits. One thing I'm proud of is that I managed to get quite a bit of exercise in. Normally, when I'm on vacation I take a break from exercise, but this time I hiked, ran and surfed and got in five days of good solid, heart-pumping workouts in my seven days away. I'm looking forward to getting back on the bike this afternoon, though! It's been 12 days since my last Spinning class!
“Snacking and sweets still a problem. ”
There were two reasons for me participating in the 8-Week Weight Loss program- 1) to lose a little weight and 2) to break some of my less than healthy habits. So far I've lost two pounds, which is great because because my goal is six. However, these past few weeks have seen some zero point entries on my score sheet.
This week I have a birthday dinner on Wednesday so I know I'll eat cake then. If anyone see's me in the Halloween candy stash or the cookie box please stop me!
Keep up the good work and see you in class tonight!
BTW - I am still waiting for high fives in the hall from Niccole...
“ Exercise indoors”
The LA Times is urging everyone in the Southland to exercise indoors, due to the poor air quality from the fires in the area.
