Week 3 - Do Work!

Sunday, August 04, 2013

It's the first day of Week 3 and I'm pumped! I feel like I'm really on a roll and have made several small changes to my diet, and keep doing so.

I made some delicious whole wheat banana bread over the weekend. Yum! So healthy, too.

I bought new workout clothes and new workout shoes so I feel more comfortable at the gym.

I have also started making fruit smoothies every morning! I previously blogged about my challenges eating breakfast, but I love making smoothies so that helps me. I found a recipe on the site that is just perfect. It calls for a tablespoon of oats and I also add flax seed and it keeps me full for quite awhile.

I have literally purchased every single kind of fruit imaginable: mangos, peaches, pears, blueberries, raspberries, fresh pineapple, strawberries, bananas, etc. so I have so much fun deciding which combination I want to make.

Yesterday I made a strawberry banana one, and today I made a pineapple, raspberry, and banana one . . .so freaking yummy!!

So, I'm doing pretty well with things and have been really proud of myself about the fact that my husband, who is not changing his habits (in the past, I have asked him to join me on diets and he will do it, but this time I decided that he needs to be ready to make that change on his own), brings home all kinds of bad food and I am not tempted at all!! I know that my fridge is full of all kinds of healthy goodness that is just waiting to get in my belly and make me healthier all around.

I also feel more social lately and had a really nice weekend spending time with family. Last night, for my step-mom's birthday, we made a huge sushi buffet. I limited myself and I know I didn't go over my calories.

I just feel great and hope everyone else does too!!

    This is such a happy blog, I love it. I also love smoothies! I am going to start incorporating the oats in mine, that is a great idea to make it more filling and the flax is such a healty component too, thanks for that idea! They are so good and the combinations are endless. Have you tried tossing in a handful of spinach? You can't even taste it and it adds great value. Glad you had time to enjoy family, that us so important and thge sushi looks fab, yum! emoticon
