Oh eTools, after all the trouble I had getting signed up and one more invalid access code sent to me, I am finally signed up! I love it!!! It's so motivating to put in activity and see the points add up. I feel like I'm on a bit of a roll with the eating over the past week. I made a Veggie Chili that is low in points and high on fibre, I added a can of mushrooms too. I've been putting it on top of spaghetti squash for even more veggie pow and it's super filling. Travels well for lunches too. My biggest downfall is lunches. I hate packing my lunch but buying my lunch adds pounds. I love making breakfast on Saturday and Sunday too. This past weekend I was sauteing mushrooms, onions, green pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, and some spinach and then added 4 egg whites to the scramble. There was more veggie than eggs and lots of flavor. Topped with 1/4 cup of shredded cheese and yum!! Gotta have my cheese! Putting a bit of cheese on everything really stops me from eating the whole block. Because I can and have eaten a whole block before. I only buy shredded cheese now.
Pure Burn Super Strength DVD (click the link to watch the trailer, eek!). I watched it through and it's a lot like the Barbell class so I'm going to substitute it this week for my classes.
There's been lots of challenges running around the blogs these days and I'm reluctant to commit to a challenge that requires me to do something physical EVERY DAY. I've tried and failed enough diets and plans and exercise programs to know that I won't do it. I would rather commit to four times a week and end up doing it five or six rather than commit to seven and fail and be disappointed in myself. That's just how I roll :) So my challenge for myself this week is to continue to track everything I eat in eTools and to do Bob's Pure Burn Super Strength three times this week (in place of Barbell) and run three times this week.
Thanks everyone for all your comments, mentions, encouragement, and support! It is so so appreciated!!
