I feel like I've taken a step back... the new eating plan has been difficult (I tried to go whole foods plus fish, no processed anything) and failed miserably. So on to a new plan... I guess that's what it's all about, finding what works.
I've been off meat for 4 months, and that's going well. I went off eggs and that worked for awhile, but I am thinking that I'll allow myself to eat egg whites. The processed food... well, that's another story.
I have used SP's food tracker for years, but just signed up for a free trial of Weight Watchers, so I can try their tracking system. It works pretty well and it's fast to track.... we'll see how I like it by the end of the week. The point system is interesting, it basically forces you to eat clean (or you won't have any food left after noon). It's $17 a month, so I don't think I would keep using it after the free trial.
It feels really good to get back into lifting. I think I just have to be sure to keep up the yoga also, to maintain flexibility and balance. I'll need to take some bikini pics soon to compare my back.
On the family front, can't believe summer if almost here... pool time! The boys will have Daddy time all weekend, as I'm at a pilates mat training certification class. I am so BURNING OUT on all of these trainings... after this one, no more until the fall! And then just 1...
