Who thought school on Saturday and Sunday was cool?
Tuesday, September 23, 2008
Yup, ladies and gentlemen, I had school from 8am to 6pm this weekend, both days. They have a name for that, dont they? I think its called cruel and unusual punishment! Well, it was both cruel and unusual. There is a point to this story though, besides complaining.....I had a turning point during that torture, that I really appreciated. My problem has always been nutrition. I have always wanted to be the person found munching on snacks all the time, because I firmly believe that is the key to healthy weight management. My excused abound: I don't have time, I can't eat that often, I get full, etc. Well this weekend, I packed a days worth of healthy snacks: fruits, nuts, yogurt, etc. and ate a lite snack every few hours of my day. I felt so wonderful and refreshed and had a wonderful workout without any fatigue later on that evening.
This is an important turning point in my life, because I have a goal from here to the the end of the year - I don't remember if I had already shared this or not - it is to lose a pound a week till December 31st! Holidays and all. Adjusting my meal habits it only the beginning!
