"Trim the Fat" Thursday



Even though I didn't meet all my goals this week, I'm trying to stay positive. You remember all that baking I did on Sunday? Well I ended up gifting the cobbler & 99% of the pineapple zucchini cake. I only had one piece to try it, then the rest went with S to work.

It was a good idea to send them on their way...

Goals last week:

1. Drink 4 glasses of water a day. Did it!
2. Take vitamins everyday. Did it!
3. Do 20 minutes of exercise 2 days a week. Not so much...
4. Finish reading the Flat Belly Diet. Did it!
5. Possibly start the 4 day jump start. If not start tracking calories. Still working on this one...

I made a grocery list to do the 4 day jump start but I haven't' been to the store yet. While making the list, I had to make some adjustments to the original menu because I don't eat tuna or mushrooms. (It looks like I'll be eating a lot of turkey and chicken that week.)

Initially I thought it would be easier to do over the weekend, but the more I think about it eating two meals at work and then only having to do dinner with the boys would probably work better.

So that means Monday is the BIG day. Wish me luck!

Goals this week:

1. Drink 4 glasses of water a day.
2. Take vitamins everyday.
3. Do 20 minutes of exercise 2 days a week.
4. Start the 4 day jump start on Monday.

How did you do this week?

You did really well this week. I think you are wise to do the 4 day thing while at work. Also, that was a great idea to substitute - if you hate something it does you no good to force it down your throat. Sounds like you will be getting the protein you need on this plan too

Starting is hardest, and then it's downhill. Just don't stop!!!!

I'm so proud of you for making most of your goals! Don't beat yourself up, you're doing the best you can.

I heart ALL of you!

Way to go!

Yeah, I don't think I could eat tuna and mushrooms, either. Hmmm...

Did you know there is a "Flat Belly Diet Cookbook"? I'm not sure if it's in stores yet or not...

Good for you, hon. I REALLY need to start drinking more water... at least to balance out the booze... ;-)

You did awesome this week! I got the diet book from the library...it looks pretty doable. Except that I don't eat tomatoes. And it really looks like there is a lot to eat...and that I would not get hungry. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the jumpstart!
