Lazy weekend

I survived my first week and did reasonably well. I ate way too much over the weekend but I learned a few things from my mistakes. Like not having any chocolate in the house at all even though it's portion controlled dark chocolate. Lets just say there was an incident.

I was SO incredibly sore from my Friday night water aerobics class that I didn't do much exercise either. I worked myself extra hard and it felt great. Once it's not freezing and raining I'll be much more inclined to exercise on the weekend outdoors with my husband and the dogs. Something to look forward to!

According to the scales I put back on 2 pounds over the weekend but I'm not going to record weight daily this week nor am I going to obsess about it. That's only for the first week "honeymoon" pounds :) Friday will be my weigh in day from now on.

Once again I have meals planned for the whole week and I've even switched over to greek yogurt with frozen berries instead of my loaded with Aspertame old standby. I'm really liking it.

Tonight is water aerobics again which I can't fathom as I sit shivering at my desk right now. Hopefully I can get as great of a workout with the Monday night instructor even though he talks too much to the old ladies. It's making me feel great to back in the pool again so I will carry on.

Hope everyone has a fantastic week!!


  1. Hi Tina! I've been absent from your blog for a bit, so I've been catching up on your January posts. Sounds like you and your hubby are doing really well with the eating and working out. Keep it up, and I'm sure the weight will just fall off! :)

  2. why did I laugh at the mental image of the instructor 'chatting up' the old biddies :)

    and no disrespect meant either---Im heading toward biddiedom pretty damn quickly!

  3. Isn't Greek yogurt good?!? I never thought I would leave my beloved peach-flavored Yoplait, but I did! I mix in a bit of jam and Kashi GoLean Crunch cereal into mine.

  4. Happy to see you feeling good :)

    Greek yogurt and berries...I forgot about this yummy snack. I will get some today!

  5. Way to go on ditching the crappy yoghurt!
