I cannot believe it is Thursday already.....the weeks are flying by . I've been doing some exercise (cardio and strength training) each day which is nice. Today though I started my TOM so only did a little bit of core exercises 10 minutes, better then nothing. I had to make popcorn for my daughters class because tomorrow is a movie day. What is up with my popcorn cravings? The house smelled of delicious popcorn so this time I said I'm having some I'm not going to try and sidestep it and end up eating a bunch of other things. Ok I would of been fine with 1 serving but I did go with 2 which was 240 of my daily calories.......yup I'm well within my limit today so I'm not gonna stress about it (although I need to practice portion control better, I'm just happy I wasn't set off into a binge) .

Well I did get some more exercise kids were so embarrassed. They were watching music channels and flipping through them and Engelberg Humperdinck "After the Loving" came on and I started dancing around in the living room. My daughter said to my son "Quick shut the shades moms dancing again". hehehe, I always thought I was a good dancer.

Some of you asked about the gazelle.....for me I love it. It is great for people who have bad knees/joints. My mother got it for her and I seem to be the one who uses it. I get a really good workout on it ....without the crashing on your knees like the treadmill. I switch back and forth to change it up.

Ok, time to go plan out dinner......Go Pearls.

    Yea for a little exercise! At least you just didn't skip it! Popcorn is hard to pass up.. glad I don't go to the movies often.. that fake butter stuff is way worse than anything you make at home! And it is easier to just have a little of what you're craving than eating everything else in site trying to pass it up! You did much better than me today :( , I had a naughty day (see my blog) that I have to make up for!

    Keep dancing.. who cares what the kids think.. they need to learn that you need to be allowed to express yourself.. and they should join in!! lol

    Thanks for the info on the Gazelle.. may have to look into one of those.

    all excercise is better than none. i understand the urge for popcorn once you smell it. there is just something about that smell that makes you want it., and i dont even like popcorn that much. but yay for not going overboard with it.

    I am just ending my TOM after not having it for 3 months. Imagine the cravings I had all week, LOL

    Congrats to you for not over doing it on the popcorn and making sure you were in your aloud calorie range. Its really hard to turn down popcorn when its all around us, nevermind over doing it.

    And yes 10 mins of excercise is better then none! LOL @ your kids being embarrassed at you dancing around. My daughter listens to every kind of music you can imagine and sometimes I will dance around and she goes and turns off the music, think she is trying to tell me something.

    I use to love my Gazelle until I broke my ankle, now it hurts to do it. It sits in my garage :-(
