Fruit & Weekly Mtce

I forgot to weigh Monday so this weekly post is a day late. Mr. Scale showed my weight to be 162.5, 2.5lb loss from last week. Despite my previous decision to only weigh once a week, I decided to weigh more this week out of concern for my gain last post.

Fitness~~I did Zumba wii once, yard-work (shoveling dirt) once, Pilate's (a first), elliptical once. Saturday was spent walking around museums. I still feel I can do more.

Healthy eating~~I continue to log my food intake using my iPhone app. It definitely keeps me aware of what calories I'm consuming. It has become 2nd nature to me, no stress, just awareness. I had fruit 5 of 7 days this week. I started adding extra fruit to my oatmeal.

Water~~It continues to be a struggle to remember to drink water during these cooler days. It is easier when it's warmer. I am definitely not getting enough.

Carbs~it was more difficult than I expected  to reduce carbs to one per day.  I am going to try to just concentrate on what I consider really bad carbs, i.e. white breads/rice/pasta/potatoes & refined sugars.

Reflux~~had only one day of reflux last week.

Goals for my week

Drink full glass of water before each meal
Buy a bottle large enough to hold a full day of water
Zumba Wii 1-2x
Pilates 1x
Walk with my husband 1-2x
Gardening -min 1 day
eliminate/minimize all white carbs this week


  1. Well done on your weight loss, your goals are excellent, I really ought to adopt them too!
