Tales from the Scales Weekly Weigh In

Has it been a week already? How time does fly! This week went OK! I tried to ease myself back into the whole diet/exercise thing. Looking back at my list of "issues and goals" from last week, here's how it went this week.

1. Drank some water
2. Did some exercising
3. Was more positive this week about weight loss! Didn't beat myself up over a few bad choices and go completely off track! It was the state librarians conference this past weekend...had to eat at the Hard Rock..and drink a couple of reg. Cokes....and eat sweets...the other librarians held me down and forced me to.
4. Though I had a few over the weekend, I did cut way back on regular cokes. No, MBJ, I haven't switched to all water just yet...I'm easing, remember ;)
5. I bought some fruit. OK, I realize I have to actually EAT it to meet that goal, but I'm closer than I was last week!
6. Although I did eat less, I did not track anything. This is tough for me. I know it helps, why don't I do it???

So my weight loss this week was 1.5 pounds and I'm quite satisfied with that number!

Something I want to do this week is bump up the exercise. In order to keep it interesting I'm going to be conducting a little "taste test", if you will, of the thousands of exercise DVDs that I own. OK I exaggerate, I don't own a thousand exercise DVDs, but I do own a lot! More than I fact, if I did them all I wouldn't have a weight problem! Anyhow, I'm going to work out and blog one DVD regularly and hopefully find the ones that I will actually stick with and weed out the others. I'll be starting with a Yoga Booty Ballet DVD(an impulse buy)

Hey...great job on the loss! I like the idea of trying out the DVDs and blogging about them. I might try that too!
About the "lemonade" actually tastes good. The maple syrup sweetens it and I use exactly 1/4 tsp of the cayenne to the t and you really don't taste it. The cayenne gives it a little kick.
Thanks for visiting!

I have a really hard time journaling, too! Why is that?? I don't know either.

Congrats on the loss and good luck this week!

Yay for the weight loss! I hope you're able to find a good workout DVD. Be sure and add some weight training!

Here's hoping you have an equally good week next time -- or better! :)

Thanks Ya'll!

I just finished working out with the YBB dvd and plan to get a review of sorts posted! So watch for that...I'm certain it will be riveting.
