So this morning we D-I-E-T girlies are starting an October challenge ... my partner is the lovely Ellen. We are the Harvest Honey's! We're gonna be kicking some tail. I always seemt o do better when I have someone who depends on me ... maybe why I was so succesful at losing weight & keeping it off when I was a assistant instructor then full time aerobics instructor. I knew people depended on me to be fit.
Anyway, over the weekend my Winning by Losing book came in & I started reading it. I have to say I LOVE JILLIAN MICHAELS. She is a "tell it like it is like it or not" kinda gal & I like people like that.
Anyway, like most people I'm so confused about how many calories I should be taking in to lose weight ... this book spells it out so clearly that if I don't lose weight this time then it's because I haven't followed the formula like I should. Here's the formula:
So ... today, here is my food! The french toast was actually really good but the splenda didn't seem to sit right. DH thinks it's because I did my weight training right after breakfast. Makes sense to me.

Below are the toning moves I have completed for the day:
push-ups, skater squat, regular squat, dumbbell flys, tricep dips, leg extensions, lateral raises, basic crunches, jumping rope & jumping jacks (3 min.), scissors, & tricep extensions. I did 3 sets of 15 using 5 pound weights unless stated other wise. Talk about feeling like a limp noodle. =D
DH has the day off so we are planning on going on a nature trail walk around lunch time. It's a 2.4 mile walk, usually takes us about 40 min. to walk it. Lots of hills but it's so nice & peacefull.
