Today I spent the day pondering on Monday. You know that Monday is always the official start day, right? emoticon Today was like a test run of sorts.

Well, I didn't wait until Monday. I did my 45 minutes of exercise and I logged my food. I made it 8000 steps, not the 10,000 goal, but not bad for a Saturday. I even took my two little ones outside and played basketball with them. emoticon. But somewhere in my mind Monday is the get serious day. I am doing some meal planning, that is a must. I have picked out 3 crock-pot meals (love that slow-cooker) that are healthy. I don't like to cook something different for me and then a whole other meal for the rest of my family. So, It takes me some time to nail down 3 meals a day that will satisfy all of us and not make it so hard to stay in my calorie range.

Today I did 10 minutes on the dreaded elliptical machine and then a 3 mile Leslie dvd. I hated almost every minute of it. I do remember that I used to get really excited about exercise. I just spent a lot of time today berating myself over being right back where I started from. I am not going to waller (that is southern for wallow) emoticon in that much longer because frankly, I am sick and tired of feeling pessimistic. It is what it is and I will go forward.

So the pity party is over and I know what I have to do! So lets GO!

Have a great weekend!

    Basketball! Wow! Good for you! What do you do while on the elliptical? I wouldn't be able to last long on the rebounder if it wasn't for the Today Show. I jump while watching the news. The time goes by so fast that way.

    Which slow cooker recipes did you pick? Let us know as the week goes by. I am always looking for good family-friendly recipes.
