Weigh In Mondays

I have always liked making my weigh day on Mondays, mostly because it keeps me more in check for the weekends but also it's a good way to start fresh every week.

I lost a total of 4.6 lbs for my first week back on my routine. I was so excited this morning it was just the confirmation that I needed that hard work does pay-off.

I'm easing my way back into my workouts,but so far I'm feeling strong. I am really going to have to work to get back where I was a few months ago but I know that I can get there once again because I have already accomplished it before.

So onto to other news...... lets talk about what I am eating. I have never had a problem with eating veggies and even some fruit but I have a hard time with eating meat and laying off the carbs.

I realized long ago that I need carbs, but just the right amount and they have to be complex carbs. My favorite are sweet potatoes (well any type of potato will do but I have a tendency to drowned a regular spud with a half of tub of butter and cheese so I stay where I can be safe)

I know my trigger foods and at the risk of sounding like a cheesey cartoon.... knowing is half the battle. It really helps for me to identify where my week points are. I know how to eat in moderation so for these few items I have to plan it out and buy a small quanity or they don't come into the house.

I feel proud when we prepare a healthy well balanced meal, and I notice when we do we also create other good habits like eating at the table and not in front of the tv. We also clean the kitchen up together right after dinner........... I love that one.

Well every one I hope you had a great start to your week too!!!!!


  1. I have a carb problem, too. You are definitely not alone. Congrats on such a fabulous loss this week!

  2. Awesome weight loss! How encouraging! I love sweet potatoes, too, but yeah...I love baked potatoes more, I think. I don't eat them anymore because I love them too much. ha! =)

  3. Dr Pepper is my enemy!

    Keep up the good work! Diet and exercise are so important together, like you've already experienced, do them both and the weight comes off quick!

  4. Hi Candy girl - just checking in to see how you are doing. Hope all is well!

  5. How did I miss that you were back?? I've been thinking of you and thought to come to your blog. :)

    I hope all is well, my dear! Wishing you all the best. :)
