The First Week’s Success!!!

There it is in Technicolor–I’m down 3 pounds this week!!

This week in review….

a) I started to drink water with gusto
b) I signed up for a Pilates class that meets 2x per week
c) I planned my menus
d) I wore a pedometer for a few days–and if I work, I hit 10000 no problem! If it’s the weekend, I averaged less than 5,000. That’s something to improve upon!

I also enjoyed a slice of deep-dish, Chicago style pizza and tried, for the first time, ColdStone Creamery Ice Cream Cake. Both times, I enjoyed every bite, and made other choices to counter balance the fat and calories in both. I didn’t calculate exactly what each contained (knowing, IMO, would take out some of the pleasure), but I can honestly say that those were my two treats for the week.

So in this coming week, I will

a) post another menu outline
b) work on increasing my weekend steps
c) come up with a fun, cheap reward for myself!!! (ideas welcome)

  4. Way to go Michelle! That is one great week you had. And you still got to enjoy a few treats, that’s what I call success! 🙂

  5. You should buy yourself some podcasts or songs or something to go with your new MP3 player. I know that would totally motivate me 🙂
