Friday March 30th

Total Lean Cereal, 1/2 cup milk, v8 juice
Wopper Jr xKetchup, chick tenders, sweek and sour.
30 min walk
Blueberry Muffin, Hard boiled egg, Tuna w/mayo and relish on Ritz with olive.
Potato Ole's, hardshell taco, chocolate bar

I had a brisk walk today at work. The usual head east in the interior hallway, then loop around a building down by Manufacturing, and head back. Takes 30 min! Good thing I was wearing my sneakers today.

I have updated my goals on the main page. Broken it into a 3 week plan, and shifted my goal of 150 (now a 13 lb weight loss) to May 1st. That is a weight loss of 2-3 lbs a week.

Wednesday March 28th

1 Banana, kiwi/Rasp juice
Cinnamon flavored bagel
Cucumber tomato Salad, Pesto Cavatappi (small) at Noodles
Snackwells, Diet 7 UP
Chick Nuggets, fish fillet, Sundae
30 min total workout (treadmill + upper body weights)

Diet journals are not very interesting, but I decided the best way for me to keep one was in a notepad, then transfer it to my blog :)

Above is the contents from yesterday and here are my motivations:

  • I bought so many cute clothes in size 12 last year when I was thinner, I want to fit back into them.
  • I don't mind paying the extra to alter my dress down to a size 10 for my wedding :)
  • A healthy diet includes lots of cancer fighting veggies. Is there any family these days that doesn't have a history of it somewhere?
  • For my future kids... If I can kick these bad habits now, maybe my kids wont even start, and establish some good habits instead!
It should have gone without saying (but this is me we are talking to), but what are YOUR motivations?

Well friends and family, I'm working out tonight.

Nothing strenuous, but easing back into some cardio and weights, and right at home so no excuses!

Bridesmaid Dresses

Hello Bridesmaids :)

I would like you guys to go find this dress and try it on, send me pics as soon as you can. Unless it fits someone horribly this is the dress I would like to go with.

(Karen is obviously exempt).

We will decide later if the dress should be cocktail length or floor length.

New Bridesmaid Dress Option?

We found a bridesmaid dress at Davids Bridal last night that comes in the color "Clover" which is their version of the medium green color. I guess it could take 14 weeks to get in, so we would have to order soon!

Here is Karen modeling it, on the pro list is its price, $110 (with $20 off because I am going to buy my dress at Davids Bridal), on the con list is the length (not quite the below the knee I was thinking) and the back, which appears to v down just past the normal bra line (so a special bra will have to be worn).

What do you guys think?
