I like to move it move it! :]

Wow... the shred was a killer last night!  I was not motivated at all to get off my butt and do it, but after I made the decision to "get er' done" I figured I would make it a really hardcore workout!  It's the hardest I've worked out so far & I was so surprised with my stamina!  I cannot believe how quickly consistent exercise can transform your body & energy level!- It's absolutely incredible.  I am so happy & excited about it! :]  Then later on when I worked out on the treadmill I decided to up the speed quite a bit & I was once again dumbfounded.   
Woo hoo for my new "love" of exercise!- I feel amazing.

After making it a goal to incorporate breakfast into my life I have been pretty consistent.  @ my Weight Watchers meeting yesterday my leader quoted the saying "eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper!"  In the past I have come home from work so hungry & tired, which is when I would eat the most.  I have tried to change this up by making breakfast my biggest meal of the day-  huge change for me!  It has worked!  I don't find myself craving as many snacks throughout the day & I feel so much more satisfied.  My breakfast this morning:

Peanut butter & banana on a whole wheat bagel (I ate 1/2), fruit salad (strawberries, raspberries, grapes & apples), & vanilla yogurt with granola.  The only thing I managed to eat all of was the yogurt, but I tried.


Subway... yummm! :]  I get turkey on whole wheat, no cheese, extra lettuce, tomatoes & a little bit of light mayo.  Then I crunch a few garden salsa sun chips on top. Delicious! :]

On the menu for dinner tonight out of my Weight Watchers "Comfort Classics" & "New Complete Cookbook"  is:  Confetti Meatloaf with Cajun Barbecue Sauce, Bacon Cheddar Mashed Potatoes & Baked Vegetables.  We'll see how it turns out- my poor guinea pig family :]

I hope everybody is having an absolutely fantastic day!


  1. Wow! You go girl!
    You're doing what I'm not able to do,.....changing your meals big time. I just can't stomach, literaly, a big breakfast in the morning. I do eat it, just two slices of whole wheat bread with peanut butter or light jam, a banana and a glass or juice/lemonade.
    Don't you just love exercising? I had a running session this morning and ran for four minutes! YAY!
    We're good!

  2. Wow! I didn't know you were doing the "Shred". I'm intriqued but a little scared! Scared of what?? That I might not be able to do it. I've always heard/read to give your body a day of rest too. Wondering why she doesn't have one do that?? I will try it! Trying to make exercise a habit first!

    Your breakfast looks so good! I wish I would eat more in the AM! Hope your dinner turned out great!

  3. I love that song! You are doing great!
