Health Plan

Step 1: Any time I feel like eating a chocolate bar, I will drink a full glass of water first. If I still feel like eating it fine.
Step 2: increase my intake of Omega 3 Fatty acids with a supplement AND having fish once a week.

This is kind of a joke, but its because I'm not a dieter. Never have been, never will. I just plan to start making some better choices.

I do have a serious goal, I weigh 191 today. When I lose 10 lbs I will get a reward of a ladies night out up in the cities! Who is with me?

Have you developed any new good habits? Bad habits?

I have a bad chocolate eating habit right now... I'm planning on weaning myself off of it as the Halloween candy disappears!

I think I developed some good habits when visiting my in-laws a couple of weeks ago. I didn't avoid the treats, just made sure I filled up on real food first, and then if I still had room/cravings I would have a treat.

Baby Lydia is HERE!

This won't come as a surprise to any of my close friends, but baby Lydia was born on June 14th.

Next week is my 6 week post birth appointment, and I will find out how my C-Section scar is healing and what the outlook is for exercise, swimming, sex etc :)

I hope everyone is taking advantage of the cooler than average week we are having in the upper midwest and getting outside!!

February Fitness Goals

To start out with in 2009 I just wanted to ease back into exercise after a prolonged break.

January - 0-3 short periods of light exercise and stretching.

February 2nd - 20 minutes on the treadmill at any speed/incline 3x this week.

February 9th to 20th - 1 mile on the treadmill at any time/speed 3x a week. (substituted one day walking around the Home Show).

February 23rd - 1 arms, 1 legs strength training session per week.

One thing that has been concerning me lately is my hereditary predisposition to Gestational Diabetes, and I have that test this coming Thursday along with my regular monthly pregnancy checkup. I'm obsessing a bit about it this week, but I'll know for sure by the end of the week if I have it or not!

2009 Goals

Anyone making 2009 goals?

As most of you know I'm pregnant, so my fitness and health goals involve having a healthy baby and staying active throughout my pregnancy.

To quantify that..
30 minutes of aerobics and stretching 5 days a week.
Veggie or fruit with every meal (shooting for 1/2 my plate each meal)

What are some of your 2009 goals?
