Good morning friends!
Oh my goodness, I just realized I haven't been on the blogs for a few days. Seems that I have succumbed to the throws of a nasty cold...yuck! :( I just haven't had the energy to sit at the computer. I'm hoping it passes soon. I really hate being under the weather! I had plans to hit the gym today but I am just too tired & congested , my throat is so sore & the nose is in a constant state of running so I think I will hold off until things improve. Not trying to be a whiner here so sorry if it comes off that way. Just wanted to let you all know why I haven't been around. I did try to post on your blogs to get caught up with whats new with you all. My heart goes out to Pattie & her family. There are no words to describe such a catastrophic loss. You are in my thoughts & prayers Pattie.
Not much new here on the diet front. I am trying to eat "clean" & rid my body of processed food. I do love my turkey bacon though and nitrites & all, I am still gonna eat it! Weight watchers has a part of their weight loss plan called "Simply Filling". Now I know many of you girls are BFC girls, and you know that I am a WW girl, so oblige me here for a moment. The Simply Filling Technique is where you eat mainly "Power Foods" which are whole unprocessed foods. Fruits, veggies, lean proteins low fat dairy & 2 tsp of healthy oils/day. It has worked great for me in the past , where I have lost 3-4#/week. The hardest part is the preparation. When you are eating "good" you have to be prepared & have those good foods on hand so that is my plan today. Since I am not going to the gym today, my plan is to prep some healthy meals for the week with Simply Filling foods. I started eating SF on Sunday and I got on the scale this am and am down 2# already! Now, mind you, when weigh in day on Sat rolls around, we could be talking a different story because my weight fluctuates 1-2# daily (which might I interject here drives me CRAZY!!!! Sigh...I know its a girl thing but still) I feel better eating this way and there is some flexibility with the program as you have 49 extra points that you can use toward foods that aren't power foods. So we shall see what happens. I am tired of spinning in neutral and it is time to SHAKE THINGS UP!!!!!!!!! My goal is to lose 5# this month to stay on target for reaching my goal weight of 150# by June 20th.
So that's my thoughts for today. I hope you are all having a great week!!!
Keep on Keepin on Girls!!! Its a NEW YEAR and we are on our way to being our BEST ever!!!!
Hugs to all my peeps!
