Weigh in day is tomorrow and no weight loss this week. :( I've charted and exercised......maybe the last week is catching up to me? I didn't get my exercise in last week because I had the flu. Tue, 22 Jan 2013 10:27:41 EST Feeling Better! Went to Zumba this morning then followed that with the Elliptical, Treadmill and core training. GREAT work out in. <BR> <BR> I feel so much better when I can get my exercise in! <em>386</em> <BR> Sat, 19 Jan 2013 17:00:08 EST Day 18 Had the terrible flu that is going around. :( <BR> I did terrible tracking food and ate whatever I thought I could keep not great. Lots of Chicken Noodle Soup which is very high in sodium but at the time I didn't care. <BR> <BR> On a positive note, I was down 2 more pounds on weigh day, 7.3 pounds total! No exercise though for the week. <BR> <BR> Trying to get back on track with Zumba Saturday morning! :) Fri, 18 Jan 2013 10:16:13 EST 9 Days and Counting! Well, week one went fairly good. I wanted to excersize 5 days and I only got in 4 days. I need to work on scheduling a little better. I forgot our bowling league started back up so I didn't get to excersize that night. I'm not sure if bowling counts as excersize or not? <BR> <BR> I did great with the Food & Fitness tracker. 1st week weigh in and I was down 5.3 pounds! <em>224</em> <BR> <BR> I'm trying not to focus on the numbers but more on my diet and excersize.....the rest should follo... Thu, 10 Jan 2013 13:35:01 EST So far so good This is really a different approach than I usually take to lose weight. Typically I allow myself very little to eat for big weight loss results. I'm using the Nutrition Tracker and have stayed within my allotted calories, I feel very satisfied. I'm exercising 30 minutes each evening with interval and strength. I feel like I'm on the right track! <em>30</em> <BR> Thu, 3 Jan 2013 20:01:56 EST
