Girls Rock


I wrote on my business blog here about this sketch.

I am trying to contribute to that blog a bit more since it is attached to my website.

I have been terrible about writing on the yahoo message board about my eating and exercise.

I was telling my husband this morning how different this has been for me. I am being moderate. I have cut back on the cheescake and icecream. LOL. Seriously, I was eating a lot of cheescake and ice cream. I have been going to my exercise class 2x a week-except today-I had too much work to do, to spend the few sparse hours without my non stop chattering, question asking, toddler-running to and from the gym for a 1 hr class.

But that is ok. You know why? Because this is a lifelong thing I am aiming for. Moderation, health, happiness and balance.

I was 153.5 this am. I am happy that I can feel skinny at 153.5. I catch myself in the mirror and I see my arms and waist looks less bloated. It is great!

I still think I look and feel healthiest at 135-138 but hey, I feel good and am going in the right direction so I am going to enjoy it.

So to sum it up-I grab a slim fast shake for breakfast or lunch if i notice I am hungry and don't have time to have a big salad-or sometimes I just don't feel like a salad. I am aiming for one big serving of veggies and one of fruit a day to start. I am not beating myself up for wanting or having a handful or two of chips, and this allows me to stop at that amount instead of scarfing the whole bag because I thing the day is shot. Luna bars are also chock full of protein and fiber and satisfy that sweet craving. At night I have been having a tootsie roll and tea. As my weight goes down I very well may have to clean things up even more, but for right now not eating a half cheescake or two cups of ice cream are way good enough.

i love this new sketch and i'm happy that you're finding some balance with the food and exercise and that you're seeing results. i'm such an extremist that it's a daily battle toward moderation...but I'm trying really hard ;-)
happy spring, beautiful you!!!

keeping the balance, knowing that it's a lifestyle change is what has been working for me. i'd love to say more, but don't want to clog your comments...xo

Yes, you are so right, the key to life long healthy eating habits is moderation.

Love the sketch, and I can identify with the eating. I crave sugar so much, it's scary. By just cutting out the sweets, I have accomplished so much. Keep up the good work.
