Weigh in Wednesday....except a little late on THURSDAY!!

OKKK.  So I was SUPER busy yesterday and didn't have time to check in.  I DID have time to weigh in though and the results were good.  I lost 2.5 pounds and couldn't be happier.  This coming up week is busy too, so I am going to stick to the same game plan.  I was only able to work out once...although I don't know if 20 minutes interruped 3 times by crying baby counts as much of a work out.  I DID eat much healthier and I think that is the key for me. 
A few things I tried that I liked:
Chocolate Cruch Rice Cakes!!!  I ALWAYS want some chocolate after the stress of putting my kids to sleep, and these are perfect for me. A little chocolate, but no guilt:)  They are also FAB with a little peanutbutter smeared on.  YUM!!! 
Lemon and Lime water!!  I have a hard time making myself drink enough during the day.  SOOO I added a little lemon or lime to my water and I LOVED it!!!  PLUS it kept my kids from drinking my water all day...SCORE!!
Jillian Micheals 30 Day Shred.  I only did it one day, so I guess that is probably why I liked it:)  But it was quick and the kids could do it along with me.  PLUS I was sore the next day (3 days), so that means it worked (or would if I had done it more times). 

So week one was a success.  Now I just need about 5 more weeks of THE SAME THING!!!  Does anyone else have a success story or tips to share????  Here's to another healthy week....

I have been working out all month of January and have not lost one pound and I have been working out HARD! Like at least an hour a day, 6 days a week and the result? No pounds lost! Toner? I am sure, but the scale does not show inches. So, obviously just exercising alone won't do it for you. It hasn't for me! I am convinced that calories really count on a weight lose plan. Today is my first day of saying "No" to everything that is tempting to me in the kitchen. I have done the 30 day shred before and love the 20 mins of working out, short and sweaty! Good luck on your journey. I have found when I just worked out to "look good" I never felt like I had flat enough abs, thin enough thighs, etc. But when I worked out to achieve a goal (like a 5k or 10K) it was so much more fulfilling and I wasn't worried so much about what I looked like.

I have been working out and eating healthy since the beginning of the year, down 8 lbs yay me but plenty more to go. I have been using I swear by it now my little addiction :) you enter everything you eat and exercise and it tells you how many calories you have left for the day. The days I work out i try not to eat those burnt calories (if that makes sense) If you have a smart phone you can scan barcodes on all the foods you eat and it puts it in ur daily diary. Also I have been LOVING green monster smoothies :) Keep up good work both of you! Also I love Jilian's 30 day shred...def sore for a few days after starting, but I saw results about a year ago when I did it every day.
