..and when I am bad, I'm horrid!
I am having a rough day. I exercised, stuck to my diet, and have been using the Wii Fit for about a week now. I also got Jillian Michael's fitness game for the Wii. I have been walking outside, too. I don't see any change, and I actually gained a little weight. I went out to eat twice over the weekend, but no gain from Saturday. I kept almost to my calories for Sunday despite going out, and still managed to gain some more.
I am so discouraged. I feel pretty depressed today. My calves are sore, I have been doing more workouts than usual, eating right about 80% and yet weight loss eludes me!

My turkey burger last night was DELICIOUS. I must have more. I am going to the store almost exclusively for ground turkey. Holly, thanks for the tip: I will definitely freeze pre-made patties up instead of chunks of meat, as I normally do.
I am a third of the way through Michaels' book, and I am not overly impressed, but there is some interesting new info in there about what kind of oxidizer you are, depending on what you like to eat and whatnot.
I made it through yesterday. I had a nice sized glass of sweet sparkling wine and a Captain and Diet, but still made it under my calorie limit (narrowly). I am looking forward to making today even healthier, but not having any cocktails. In my defense, I blame my co-workers at the bar! But I did stop myself and not succomb to peer pressure like I normally do. I am easily talked into diet failure. I can talk myself into it in no time!
That's all for now...stay positive! My new motto. :)

Hey strangers! I am happy to announce I took the plunge and ordered Jillian Michael's "30 Day Shred" and I am excited to start doing it. I also got a Wii Fit from my sister to try, so we are hooking up that tonight so I can mess around on it tomorrow. Can't wait! I walked like 2.8 miles today, did some other exercises on my floor. Yay! Motivation feels good.
I also purchased Jillian Michael's book, "Winning by Losing..." and I am currently reading that on my Kindle. I'm making turkey burgers on sandwich thins (whole wheat) with some steamed green beans for dinner. I am on it today! I feel GREAT!

Well, the holidays are over and I have remained relatively unscathed. I am back on track, and I am really motivated. I have been a lot more positive about diet and weight loss since I lost a few lb. in a week. I gained a pound or two over the holidays (thanks, champagne, wine, evil Christmas cookies made deliciously), but it could have been worse!
I am totally ready to get back on track and return to my healthy habits. I got a bunch of treats (think: Puff'n Corn [this is truly the evil of the evil], candy, cookies [also evil] and whatnot. I gave them all to my 6'3 146 lb. husband. He can use the fat! His cholesterol is 80, the lucky man!
I also have somewhat changed my goal weight. I think that I look and feel great at a higher weight than 115 or so. I am only 5'3, but I think I have significant muscle mass and therefore I don't look great and look skeleton-like at that weight. I am going to be happy with the mid to low 120's. 5 lb. can make a big difference for me, so I feel like I am going to focus on eating healthy and trying to move a bit.
Hope you all had a happy holiday!

I am doing well on the diet! Today is day 4. I usually blow it by now or on the 4th day. I feel really motivated! I walked 2 and some odd miles yesterday and 1.5 miles today. I am on a roll with exercise and dieting. I am eating healthier than I have in a while and I am feeling positive. I also quit smoking and this is day 3 of that. Have a great day everyone!
