Goals
Water: Y

I have finally come to terms with my hatred of the treadmill. I donít want to do it, and several years of forcing myself have not improved upon my aversion to fast-walking in place for 20 min. And I canít do the elliptical because my knee screams in pain after about 20 seconds. So this morning I hit the gym with a new cardio plan Ė do 20 jumping-jacks in between every other activity. Sit-ups/jacks, planks/jacks, leg-lifts/jacks, squats/jacks, weights/jacks, etcÖ Iíll try it for a while and see how it goes, but it felt pretty darn good so hopefully I found a keeper!

Yesterday I did really good food wise! Could have been because I had a pounding headache and was hardly hungry all day, but regardless my poor digestive track needed a break after the weekend food binge.

Today I have sort of a food plan:

Coffee/tea
Kefir
Cottage cheese
Lunch - out with friends so not sure, but will keep it in reason (i.e. avoid cheese sauce and bread)
Chicken
Acorn squash (baked)
White rice
Small chocolate square
Maybe 1 small drink

Have a great day Ladies (so far)!

Yum! My kind of meal!!! The kidn you feel good about eating.

Ama, I love your exercise approach. Please tell me how it works.

I alas am a "yoga victim." I did a "moderate" class but in what I thought was a very mellow way and the next day coudlnot move - lower back. Just went for acupuncture. After that, new exercise plan!!

Krystal - That meal looks amazing! Thanks for sharing the picture. I love cookbooks mostly because of the pictures, and recipes with pics are usually the only ones I will actually cook. I think I'll make fish tonight .

Hope - Yikes! I hope the acupuncture brings you some relief. Yoga can be so deceiving in its intensity. I have been a victim on occasion as well! I have been reading up on short intensity workouts vs long duration workouts, and it sounds like there are some big benefits to the short ones. Also, the longer ones are not doing it for me (not losing weight, getting bored at the gym, procrastinating even going to spend an hour exercising). If I can get in the habit of short 15 min workouts it may be really helpful.

Cassie - How did the biscotti turn out? Sounds yummy! I bet that would be good for neighbor gifts... I need to do some baking saturday am for my neighbors... hmmm

Joanna - How are you doing today? The holiday get togethers are so tough, food, food and more food! I know how hard it is to be mindful. Hang in there lady!
