Fit Mommy Friday

In my posts this week I talked about how I was going to be doing the Body for Life diet and I listed my meals for the week

The week has gone pretty well.  Breakfasts have been easy since I have been having the same thing each morning: 3 egg whites, 1 whole egg, and an apple.  YUM!! 

The dinners have all been fabulous, and although I am only eyeing the amounts I intake, I think I am doing a fairly good job.  For most nights, I haven't been hungry after dinner, so that is a plus!

Lunches and snacks have not been as even proportionate as I would have liked them, but they are still healthy.  For example, when I should be getting equal amounts of carbs and protein, I'll just have a banana.  Not a bad snack, but not my goal.

I've been drinking lots of water and some green tea, have only had about two cups of coffee, and maybe a half glass of diet soda the whole week.  I have not gotten a headache this week and I think that is because I am still drinking the tea. 

I have worked out my lower body twice this week and my upper body three times.  I was supposed to have at least two days of cardio but that didn't happen.  I know I will see a big difference once I add that, but unless you consider playing with the dog in the backyard and cleaning the floors cardio, I didn't do it. 

My weight is about the same since Monday but I like to do the "hands on the hips test".  My waist seems to be a tad bit smaller.  ;o)  I'll probably start taking more specific measurements next week.

So that is it for this week.  I'll continue through the weekend and post some more next week about my exercises.

I love it when the clothe size or the scale goes down but the 'hands on hips test' is the one I love the most! I think it is the best test of all. :-D Great job!!


Isn't it great when you "feel" like you've lost some weight? Nothing is better than when a previously snuggly zipped skirt, zips with ease :) Glad to have found your blog. Have a great weekend!


You go girl~We have this wonderful New Year to enjoy our new beginnings~what a blessing! Keep up your good work and your balanced eating plan~health is the ultimate goal! whoot! hugs!!


I agree with the size over weight thing to gauge how you are doing. Sometimes I will lose an inch off my waist without losing any pounds.

Good job on the eating. That sounds like a good plan.
