Dr. Fuhrman helped me budge a little from a long standing plateau. But, then I've been stuck again since I quit that little challenge. In three weeks our son's family will be with us and we will do a road trip as a part of their visit. While they participate in a trail run, we will take care of their 3 1/2 yo and 15 mo. old girls. Can't wait. But, I'm challenging myself to lose 5 pounds over the next 4 weeks. I've been walking a lot, eating pretty clean and spending time in our gym a few times each week. Today I walked with my dh this morning and did an hour on the elliptical before lifting some weights. That was the hardest workout in awhile. My clothes seem to be growing a bit. I took a pile to a local shelter yesterday. That felt really nice. So, I'm hoping to see good results to continue over the next month. We'll see!

I'm trying something new to me...Dr. Joel Fuhrman's 90/10 plan recently featured by Dr. Oz. The testimonies look promising and this is the time of year to go this way for sure. It is basically 90% fruits, veggies, nuts and whole grains with the final 10% given to fats, meat and dairy. Dr. Oz touted it as his approved 7-Day Crash Diet. We'll see. I started this a couple days ago and stocked up with lots of fresh veggies and fruits as well as more frozen berries and lots of canned beans, something I love and use a lot anyway. After failing to hit calorie goal yesterday, I'm adding nuts in a couple places today and some steel cut oats. If I can get all of my planned food down, I will meet all my goals except that I will have an excess of fiber which was true for yesterday as well. I think that is a good thing for me as I tend towards constipation despite drinking lots of water. So, since I think I can do anything for a week, I'm eager to see how my results compare and kickstart summer a bit. Some of the folks who commented on line have followed this plan as a life style for quite some time with good success. We'll see. A little change has always been good whenever I've felt in a bit of a rut. Time will tell.
