Weigh in Wednsesday

Down 1.4lbs!! Not as bad as I thought! This morning's weigh in definitely put a smile on my face- I must be doing something right! I'm linking up with Stephanie from Stephanie's Mommy Brainfor Project 10: Real Women, Real Fitness. The goal of Project 10 is to provide support to real women on their fitness goals. Goals can range from weight loss to endurance to eating healthier. I'm excited to join in and I hope someone can find inspiration in my personal journey! This weeks question: What tips do you have for making healthy food choices? The best advice I could give is be prepared! Plan for those days when it will be difficult to make healthy choices. Either embrace the fact that you will be eating less than ideal foods that day and be extra healthy on the days leading up to and after the event and then let yourself splurge a bit. Eat smaller portions of the foods you would normally pig out on. Don't make the same mistake I do by parking yourself at the snack table! Take some munchies and move along! OR decide that it just isn't worth it and go with the knowledge that you are doing something good for your body and your life. Fill up before hand on fruits, vegetables and lean proteins and drink tons of water. Chew gum when the snacks are out and sip on seltzer (club soda) with a splash of fruit juice (NOT those cocktail juices- those are pure sugar!) Play with the kids are catch up with friends to keep yourself distracted. Don't let food be your source of enjoyment! This is something I need to work on myself, for sure. Thanks for reading!

  1. Not parking yourself in front of the foot table is a huge tip!! And so hard to do when conversations seem to gravitate to that area. Congrats on the 1.4 pounds! That's awesome!!
