Thanks to everyone who jumped in with me on the thread I started last week:
More are always welcome! When it comes to shapeup support, the more the merrier for sure
So, how was everyone’s weekend?! Mine was pretty good. Fitness highlights:
-Took my first ever water aerobics class Saturday morning (followed by a session with my trainer). In a word? OW! lol I definitely feel it. Water aerobics is definitely a heck of a good workout! I’ll be taking it weekly, it was a lot of fun.
-Bought a frozen yogurt maker! If you love frozen yogurt and dont’ have one I really, really recommend. I got the 1.5 qt. model from Cuisinart. I made strawberry banana, and also baked cinnamon apple. YUM. And they are fat free and (almost) sugar free and easier on the pocketbook, too. I think my machine will pay for itself in a month.
-Cheated: had some brown rice on Saturday afternoon because I was craving sushi so badly someone was gonna get hurt if I didn’t get any! 😉 (I normally have no carbs after lunchtime). Technically the fro yo is also a cheat b/c of the sugar in the fruit, but I don’t count fruit (after all who gets fat eating fruit?!)
Today I was down a half a pound from last week. I was hoping for a bigger loss but I’ll take what I can get
How did the weekend go for all of you?

I want to take water aerobics!
I finally broke down and bought a scale to monitor the 12 lbs I’m trying to lose. I obsess when I weigh myself but it’s the only way I can keep it in check.
Back to eating my House Foods Shirataki and my hemp protein shakes…

Tweaked my back this AM reaching for my mascara, so it’s a gym-free kind of week. That’s okay, I could probably use some down time. Stupid mascara.

haha just remember you will never see a fat person who only eats fruit and vegis…so if you happen to splurge on fruit big whoop! dont kill yourself over it! Congrats on the good accomplishments though!

I had a negative and a positive within an hour of each other …. I ate 1/2 of a bag of goldfish (my weakness!) …. but instead of just calling it a day and finishing the other half — I went out for a 40 minute run/jog/walk. and I’m feeling good right now. Just gotta keep going!

Well, the only day I was really bad was Friday – Fiance and I were too tired to cook so we ended up ordering a pizza…BAD idea, I must say in retrospect.
Other than that I’ve been pretty good, and keeping track of my calorie intake at The Daily Plate (it’s great By The Way – especially to find out if you’re eating as good as you think you are!).
My biggest obstacle – and always has been – is the whole exercising thing. I just don’t like it, despite all my knowledge about how good it is for you. If there’s one area in my life where I just can’t seem to get motivated and just do it as they say, it’s exercising. Eliminate sweets – no problem! No more pasta/pizza/etc – done! But exercising? You’ve got to be kidding.
The thing is, I don’t eat junk food…no hamburgers or french fries, no fried foods, no cookies/cakes/chocolate bars here. I know, many of you are going "WHAT???" but it’s true. I can pass up these things with no problem whatsoever. I’d rather have a salad than a hamburger anyway, so it’s what I do naturally.
Another part of the problem is I have no income right now, so it’s difficult to hire a nutritionist/trainer or join any type of group. Oh well, hopefully soon!
Sorry for the rambling…glad to hear others are doing well!
