I have not really got into pilates. I do do yoga, though, but have not fallen into a disciplined enough practice. My main exercise is jogging, which I absolutely love, but my doctor is very wisely encouraging me to balance that with strength training. I also prefer to strength train using my own body weight, it just seems to be harder for me to 'do it' compared to the jogging, which is something I do 2-3 times a week (depending on the week I'm having)
Nayhannic, I hope you had a good weigh in!!

Well since I asked the original question "What are your goals this week" I have cut out the salt to a bare minimum, cut out sugar from my coffees, reduced my carbs drastically (and feel amazing...not even craving them and my puffy belly is almost gone!) increased my fruits and veggies.
I have tried Pilates and love it...just have to find more me time to add it in. I have started to use the treadmill with a programmed SD card that runs the workout for you.
I am looking forward to weigh-in this week to see what my new goals have done for me.
"Fit-at-50" enjoy your holiday visiting your son :)
Meredith, I have the same bloat, even with whole grains. It is a struggle to find the right balance. I definitely find that I feel best when my spark tracker shows that I'm quite low on carbs.
Way to go on the exercise. Have you ladies (Sunshine included) tried Pilates? It was the strength exercise that gave me the tone that I'd searched for over the past twenty years. I do love taking Group Power (weight lifting classes) as well, but discovered that using my own weight with Pilates moves is my favorite.
My goal for this week is to eat wisely while visiting my son and his wife. We will likely eat out many of our meals, and choosing healthy options can be challenging.
I was just wondering what your goals are for this week?
Myself, I plan to cut out more salt and carbs from my meals (I was blown away when I did my daily food report and found that over 1/2 my "plate" is carbs) I plan to add more fruits and veggies this week. It is amazing to review these reports to see the breakdown of what you are eating in a percentage point of view.
