Day 4 ... strolling along

weight humor Not happy with how I look in the mirror but baby steps taken will make my appearance much more appealing.

Tip for the day: Adding new food & variety to your plan will help keep your diet interesting & keep you motivated.

 I'm still on target with my weight loss. The scale was acting a little funny this morning so I'm just gonna put in the # that showed up the most. The lowest was 202.8 & the most was 204.6. The most common number is;

 so that's what I'm going with this morning. That's another 4oz gone for me ... a total of 2.2 for the week ... I still have 3 more weigh ins for the week. Tomorrow is my official weigh in for ThinChicks & then Monday will be the first weigh in for the D-I-E-T June challenge. I'm so darned excited about this weight coming off. I truly hope I can continue with this momentum cause seeing a loss ... even so small is making a HUGE impact on my mood.

 food pyramid My food is still on target ... eating most everything that Spark People has set up for me. Went shopping yesterday so I have no excuses for not sticking with my plan. I've noticed the closer I stick to my diet & fitness routine ... the more I stay thirsty. I drank about 170oz of water yesterday ... yes 170 ... I was still thirsty when I went to bed & even thirstier when I woke. Here's my food plan for the day ...

On to my video of the day:

The Biggest Loser Workout, Vol. 2Another $10 special ... this time at Target. I like this even a little more than the first workout. I think it's possible for all levels to gain something from this. You can choose your own personal workout by choosing from the various segments here. Each segment is around 10 to 15 minutes and they all do different things like fat burning, flexibility and toning various muscle groups. Even better, if you are a woman there are segments that focus a lot on abs and thighs. Bob and Kim are enthusiastic and help you along, and it's nice to see real people (former contestants) perform the routines (instead of the always stick thin exercisers).
All you need to get started is a fair bit of room, weights, a stability ball and you can opt to use a medicine ball if you have one. Overall, it's a great workout that is made better by the customisation which I love. I really like it and have found already in the while since I've gotten this, that I'm feeling good. Hope you love it too.
