Good morning and happy Monday! It is a rainy day here, but I'm feeling quite chipper, regardless.
Ready for my weekly check-in? Here is the run down:
Work outs: Did more yoga, walking, balance ball work outs, and more Bollywood dancing! Some of you had mentioned you were interested in them, so taking a cue from @BusyBabyMama, I thought I'd post a clip for you. First is a short trailor that gives you a quick glimpse into the video:
And, yes, I do feel like a bit of an ass doing the workout. But it is still fun to do. If you have time, here is a clip of Ellen doing it on her show - she looks goofy, but you get the idea that it's a happy, fun dance.
WARNING: The elk move at the end is VERY dangerous to preform around any male. *wink*
Onto food: I followed my usual m.o. - good during the weekdays, not so good on the weekend and once everyone is in bed. I have made a plan with my husband to tackle our major affection for eating out, but I think I need advice from you all about my nightly snack habit. I wait until everyone is asleep, and I have this nice happy quiet moment when I catch up on my shows, and get to eat what I want, with out having to share it with little sticky fingers. The problem though, is that I pick sweets (hello chocolate and peanut butter, my two best friends) or salty foods with dip (everyone knows pretzels taste better with queso dip.) I am determined to make better choices, but not ready to give it up entirely. Do you have any suggestions as to what might make a better (yet still deceivingly satisfying to my craving) choice? Because I am kinda sick of working so hard, then sabotaging myself.
I'm feeling good, overall. I think I have lost about a pound. (Hard to tell, on my scale, but the needle moved a little, so that's what I'm going with.) I'm happy with this, as I think I'm gaining some more tone in my muscles too. I'm still in the right mode, and really want to keep losing. This week, I am committing to working out Monday through Friday (whew!) and only eating out once (gasp!) - because I have heard a few compliments lately ("wow, your face is looking thin," "hey skinny mini,") and I want to keep them coming!
Thanks for listening and I look forward to your snack advice!
