Project Skinny Me

This blog theme is hosted by Miss Candy and I'm so excited to join her group challenge and lose post pregnancy pounds. Here is my status report after week one:

Monday & Tuesday I worked out with Jillian Michael's Shread DVD. By Wednesday I was so sore I switched to a half hour walk around our lake and that evening did a one hour yoga session. By Thursday I was still on the half hour walk because I felt too worn out to handle the Shread DVD.

Friday, Saturday & Sunday - no workout, just carrying kids all weekend and walking the mall.

Eating - started out good but by Sunday with the lack of working out I was back to every bad habit in the book! So - I'm pretty glad to see Monday and start the week over.

Only two weeks left to go! The good news is that I've lost one inch around the belly so that's something to be proud of! I'd really rather lose the belly then pounds anyway.

Favorite diet tips of week:
* 8oz Plain Yogurt with one packet of splenda and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Add a half cup of berries (raspberry, blackberry or strawberries) and you have less sugar and calories than a manufactured fruit yogurt and it taste better fresh!

* Drink sparkling water with lunch and dinner, it helps you to feel full faster and then you eat less food.

* Eggs for breakfast - they may take a little more time to prepare than cereal but they are worth their weight in gold for how long they keep you full. I can hold out till 1pm after eating eggs in the morning and they are a great protein with low calories.
