Good morning. :) It's cold here...can't wait to get a nice hot shower. I think I'll do my hair and makeup today for a change. Sometimes it's the little things, like feeling pretty at work, that make staying on track easier!
Right now I'm just waiting for my breakfast to cool down (having a Jimmy Dean De-lites breakfast sandwich, they are super yummy and only 260 calories) so I can take my pills. Think I'll take 3 today! Yesterday I felt fine. Even got a little running in with the kiddos at work, helped me stay warm on the playground haha. I'm sick of the cold weather.
Last night before bed I decided to make a pot of soup. Chicken broth (low-sodium, reduced fat), two small cans of mixed veggies, a regular sized can of dark red kidney beans, two stalks of celery, and a can of chili-style diced tomatoes I decided to throw in at the last minute. I also tossed in a cup (and yes, I measured) of ditalini pasta. My little tastes of it yesterday were yummy. I don't really know the calories in it, nor do I care too much, the highest calorie things are the beans and pasta and the beans are good for you and there's not too much pasta. I suppose I should try to count it as maybe 200 cals per serving? I don't know. lol. Anyway, I plan to eat a lot of soup this week for lunch. Healthy, filling, and nice and warm!
So, I had a question about fitness...I hope someone will answer! My main problem areas are my tummy (from having a baby), my hips, and my butt/thigh area. My waist is relatively tiny and if I was slimmer I'd probably have an hourglass shape. I just do the treadmill at the gym because it's "safe" but I doubt it's really targeting the areas I need to burn fat off off. any suggestions as to what might be better? At the gym there's stationary bikes, treadmills, regular ellipticals (which I hate), weird stair-stepper/elliptical machines, and a few old-fashioned stair-climbers that I can't do for more than a few minutes right now. I'm guessing the elliptical will probably be best but I hate them...my toes go numb.
Anywway, any tips are appreciated! Off I go to get ready for the day.
