Santa Baby


Hayden did the cutest thing ever before dinner the other night. We try to sit down at the table every night together to eat dinner, and we say Grace before we start eating. Well, I guess hubby and I were really hungry and began eating without praying first. Hayden, very sternly, told us "Say, Grace!" I can't tell you the sense of pride I felt when he said that. I felt that I have really taught him something good! Yeah, Hayden!

Fit Friday #4

This week flew by! At the beginning of the week I was focused. As the week went by my motivation dwindled. I did pretty well with my diet, except for Thursday, where I just had little snacks here and there with no actual solid meal. I did awesome with my workouts. I decided that I would do The Firm 4 times this week rather than 3 times. I am proud to say that I accomplished that! I didn't, however, do Pilates 3 times rather than 2 times, which was my goal. I actually didn't do any Pilates, shame on me!

I guess the hard work is paying off though, I was down another pound this week, and lost .5 inches off my waist. So, that is 5 pounds in 4 weeks! I can definitely feel the difference in my body. Others may not see it yet, though. I am 5'11", so 5 pounds doesn't look like much on me.

My goals for next week are...
  • to keep a food journal
  • to have quiet time
  • to do the Red Firm video (think kickboxing boot camp!)
  • to do Pilates at least once

Wish me luck this next week!

Fit Friday #3

I missed posting last week, but I have good news to report! I have lost 4lbs. in 3 weeks, 2% body fat (according to my scale, so who knows if it's right!), and 2 inches off my waist! I have been doing the Firm workout 3 times a week, and trying to do Winsor Pilates 2 times a week. I am following a new diet plan, The G.I. Diet , which cuts out white flour and sugar. I have done pretty well following the plan, except for a few pieces of halloween candy here and there! I don't know about you, but chocolate is my weakness!!! My goal for the following week is to be more strict with my diet and water intake, and do pilates 3 times per week. Until next week...
