    A friend sent me this last year, it's one of my favorites. And it's TRUE. I did not start to put on weight until I stopped using my FEET as my primary mode of transportation. I am trying to remedy this now by riding my bike to work.

Day 4 success

Friday, January 04, 2013

Update first on yesterday - I forgot to eat my evening snack, so had to go back and delete 149 cal. Alas!

1220 cal &34 min exercise. I wanted corned beef hash so bought the reduced fat version. One poached egg and 1.5 c steamed kale made a delicious 398 cal dinner. I was tempted, but determined to stay within cal range and I did! That's four days in a row. More woohoo!

Thanks, friends, for ideas on what to do in the car. I did them today.

    When driving or sitting at the wheel, grab the wheel firmly and pull on the wheel to
stretch back muscles and arm muscles. It's great!

Jan 2 Day 2 of New Year

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Two goals - meticulous tracking and 15 min exercise. So far so good. Well within cal range today and room for a snack later, and 51 min exercise instead of 15. VG

Cheers for self - can do this. Can you tell I've reread Bridget Jones's Diary recently?

    One of the rules of goal-setting is "Achievable" - that way you can succeed more, which is a huge motivator!

Christmas Cocoa, 50 cal

Thursday, December 27, 2012

I've shared this with friends, but I'm about to fix a cup for myself and thought I'd pass it around. My mother-in-law got this recipe out of GuidePosts a few years ago. I slimmed it down by using almond milk and sweetener.

1 c Silk Pure Almond Milk, 30 cal
1 T baker's cocoa
1 t vanilla (can also use peppermint or almond flavoring)
1 t instant coffee
Splenda or Stevia to taste
cinnamon & nutmeg (or pumpkin pie spice)

Heat milk, add the rest, stir, and enjoy a 50 calorie treat. emoticon

Edit: I should add that baker's cocoa takes frequent stirring. I love it because it's not sweet, so you control the sweetness by what you add. And OOPS. It's Silk Pure Almond that's 30 cal. Almond Breeze is 40, still a good option.
