emoticon Seeing results on the scale can be motivating even if I really didn't do anything to achieve those results. BUT if I do something, maybe, just maybe I will be able to achieve even better results.


So here is a little organization to keep me motivated for the week and next week too!
Activity emoticon
Day blc challenge
Wed. tone and tighten (done - I did so many reps in class today I deserve a medal!)
Thurs. Walking?
Fri. weekend challenge (not posted yet!)
Sat. weekend challenge
Sun. weekend challenge
Mon. weekend challenge
Tues. last chance workout

Food emoticon
Day. Lunch // dinner // snacks
Wed. Edemame nuggets // spinach lasagna// cut up veggies
Thurs. Shi - take (lol! SP doesn't like mushrooms!) pot stickers // spinach lasagna // fruit & veggies
Fri. Kind bar & fruit // Light and lean meal // veggies
Sat. Veggie burger// tofu tacos // fruit
Sun. Edemame Nuggets // grilled tofu // fruit
Mon. Salad //Pasta & veggies // rice crackers & PB
Tues. Pot stickers // light and lean meal// fruit

The menu needs a little work, but it’s a start
I went to the vegetable market this morning after my class and picked up TONS of fresh fruit and veggies:

And more…

This will make it easier to grab a healthy snack instead of a cookie!

Next week I have signed up for a program that helps you get good healthy dinners cooked and on the table 3 nights a week. It is called Blue Apron. I can’t wait to try it. I chose the vegetarian option. Meals are between 500-700 calories, so I will have to change my meals around a little to allow for that.

Pay bills: Oil/LS/Har. Irr./plumber/med
Make apt: Dentist (me)/cardio(r)/ID(r)
Clean clutter: Bar/kitchen table/kitchen counter/charging sta. /desk
Call: Kevin/ Robin(daily)

Just writing all of this down, I already feel more on top of things. I am following my menu and making time in my day for all of the little things that have not been getting done.

Baby steps…

I remember how MUCH you loved to get your walks in, so that's just a matter of moving less important things aside and........ VOILA!!
