Yesterday I did have a few fabulous smoothies simply made with 3/4 frozen fruit and then filled to the top with unsweetened fruit juice. A nice treat. Today I would kill for a slice of bread, a sandwich or a burger. I am ready for beef tomorrow and have a steak thawing. It may be for breakfast!

So far I have learned that keeping the house clean is essential to working out. Just a part of having life in order and not having excuses. I also have learned that now that I have scheduled and check listed my life I need to be more active. So today we added in a routine at the house. Elliptical trainer and yoga workout.

Well the diet says that you will notice a change in your bowel movements on day 3 and may want to have some fibre. I noticed it yesterday but forgot to pick-up fibre at the grocery store. I did however, invest in a scale, it has tabs around the dial that I love I used them to mark my start weight, current weight and target weight so I can watch my progress. I think the more it is in my face the more successful I will be.
The baked potato last night was delicious and needed as I just couldn't get full. The potato did the trick. Instead of butter though I used fat free sour cream (my preference). Yesterday was nice though I was really ready for some veggies. I made a honey mustard veggie dip (fat free) and I made a little stir fry, I used a non stick pan and no oil.
I took my measurements today with a measuring tape.. I need to get one meant for bodies.. pretty depressing. I have found it really hard to reinvent myself it adds to the grief of losing my husband but I need to do it for my baby and I would like to do it before his first birthday so he doesn't have any memories of mommy not being able to keep up.
I signed up today for a contest to carry the olympic torch part of the way. If I am accepted wouldn't that be awesome motivation?

I was totally ready for a salad for breakfast. I was craving veggies by 5pm yesterday.
Christopher was fussy last night so we were up by 6, he fell asleep in his swing and I got the house completely cleaned and we are ready for a productive day.
Things I did not do so well yesterday - I did not drink enough water and I didn't read Chistopher a story. I have already read him one story this morning but I think I need to do a chart for Christopher to make sure I am doing enough play with him everyday and make the most of my mat leave. I only have 8 months left... he is growing so fast!

328 lbs.. the goal 175 lbs by July 26th and a size 14.
I started the day by making a chart of things to do each day including cleaning, eating right and lots of activity. I also made a collage of life once I lose the weight making sure to put pictures of fruit and veggies on it as well and put both on the fridge.
Today was tough .. craving something sweet.. I ate a lot of Christmas oranges and made a applesauce from pureed apples and cinnamon. I had the soup 3 times today so far.
