Gettin' Fine in '09: Week 5

I can't believe it is already week 5! I have been a slacker in getting my post up, but have been so busy lately. I have done really well so far. I didn't lose any weight this week, but I lost 3 last week, so I am not upset about it at all. And I only worked out 2 times this week. I did the Wave early in the week, and yesterday I went to the Y and did an hour of cardio. I am pretty much eating the same as I was before. I eat the same breakfast everyday, and usually the same lunch, dinner is where I seem to struggle. For breakfast I eat a mixture of cheerios and fiber 1 cereal with fresh strawberries and skim milk. For lunch I usually eat soup, healthy choice or progresso light, and dinner is random. For some reason I don't like planning out a menu, so I just buy frozen chicken and frozen vegetables so I have an easy dinner to prepare. Here is a recipe of a yummy soup that I have been making alot this winter, and you can substitute the beef with chicken for a lighter version! Good luck to you all this week!

Taco Soup

1 pd. ground beef
1 can green chiles
1 pkt. taco seasoning
1 (15oz) can kernel corn
1 (15oz) can pinto beans
1(15oz) can Grn. Beans
1 (10oz) can Rotel w/ chilies
1 pkt. ranch dressing (dry mix)
1 (5oz) can tomato juice

Brown beef, drain grease. Mix taco seasoning and ranch packet with beef. Drain corn and beans before adding to the pot. Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Serve with shredded cheddar and sour cream. YUMMY!!!

Gettin' Fine in '09: Week 2

This week has been LONG. But, I have maintained my focus and worked out 5 days this week. I did the Wave 3 times, and did cardio 2 times. My hubby and I decided to join the YMCA. We got signed up on Tuesday night, and worked out Thursday night and this morning (Saturday). I am going to try and stick to my Wave workouts at home, and do cardio (treadmill, elliptical, random cardio machines) at the Y.

So Thursday night, in addition to the cardio, I decided that I would do some leg exercises while I waited for hubby to finish his workout. I chose the leg press machine, and was trying to figure out how much weight I would be able to do. I remembered that when I had worked out with a personal trainer I had been able to lift ALOT of weight. I turned the dial to 175#, it wasn't too difficult, so I turned it to 200#, it was more challenging. Then, my hubby walks up and says he thinks I could do more, so I turned the dial to 220#. BIG mistake! I finished all the reps, but I am paying for it now!!! My hamstrings are so tight that I can barely walk. So, please learn from my story and don't push yourself too hard when you are trying different exercises.

Back to the purpose of this post, Gettin' Fine in '09...

I haven't done so well with keeping track of what I am eating, or why I am eating. But, I have done well with the workouts as I said in the beginning of this post. So without further ado, I lost 2 pounds this week! Yeah! I am hoping that since I am adding cardio to the wave workouts that I will have another loss next week. So how did everyone else do? Good luck to you all next week!
