Whoa, whoa, whoa, where did the time go?! This last week just zoomed right on by me. First things first, if you are new to Extreme Makeover: Me Edition, please go visit Amber. She's the one who started this grand journey. You'll definitely want to join this fabulous group of ladies trying to get and stay fit and healthy. Go on, check it out why don'tcha!
So . . . this week wasn't too bad! Last week's question regarding tunes that you listen to while working out really got me motivated to fill up my iPod with some better music to get me goin'. And it worked! I actually fit 35-45 minutes of aerobic activity into several days last week. AND, thanks to Amber, I remembered that I really love doing isolated exercises, so I've picked that up again as well. (Think crunches and leg lifts). I've also been snacking less, and being more conscious of what I'm eating. And, while I've always been a water-drinker, I've upped my intake lately.
Amber's Question of the Week: Share with us a healthy recipe
Would you believe that this question is totally stumping me? I know, that's sad, but true. We don't eat a lot of junk, but I'm definitely NOT what you would consider a health nut. So, the following is pretty basic, and I wouldn't even call it a recipe, but here ya go:
We love fruit around here. And especially in the summer time when there are so many yummy fruits in season, I enjoy putting together a fruit salad. You can choose to add any fruit you like, but we enjoy:
*Sliced Strawberries* *Blueberries* *Raspberries* *Grapes*
*Sliced Bananas* *Sliced Kiwi*
I then make a fruit dip which consists of Fat Free Vanilla Yogurt
(Yoplait is the only kind I buy. I'm a yogurt snob like that)
and mix with Light Cool Whip
The girls love dippin' their fruit. I realize that this "recipe" would be healthier if we eliminated the cool whip, but c'mon Cool Whip makes everything a little more fun, right?
Time for the results: Why, oh why do I ALWAYS weigh less on Monday than I do on Wednesday? (Uh, Amber? Can we move EM:ME to Mondays?) I usually weigh myself daily, and Mondays I'm always like "Woohoo, look at that loss" Then we get to Wednesday and it's like "What the heck?!" Yep, that happened again this week, but I'm trying not to take my anger out on my scale. Soooooo (stupid stinkin' scale says) I have lost 1 pound this week.
So, what are you waiting for? Go take a look at what other moms are doing to get healthier over at Amber's and sign yourself up!
Until next week!
