January has been a successful month for me. I started Bob Harper's Skinny Rules this month and have lost several pounds. I am still very focused but sliding occasionally. I am consistently exercising every day with an occasional rest day. My husband and I are working together planning and cooking meals. It's so much easier with his help and support. We both love trying out new recipes and flavors. He is even on board with one meatless day per week.
February will be a bit more of a challenge for me. I have a scrapbooking retreat Feb 15-18 and will have little control over the food that is served. What I do have control of is how much of it goes in my mouth! My plan is to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks per day, NO GRAZING! I am taking plenty of veggies and fruit to supplement what is served and will come up with a healthier version treat to share. We will be in a cabin at a lake so I'm hoping for decent weather to get some good walks in.
I was able to give up sugar/sugar substitutes 95% in January. My goal for February is to continue that and to reduce my cheese intake to 3 servings a week. It is a real craving food for me and I dont want to get rid of it entirely but may have to eventually. I am streaking at 20 minutes fitness per day/5 days a week and will continue that for February. I have been tracking every bite and will continue that as well.
February will be FABULOUS!!
