Thursday check in. on Friday

Where did Thursday go?

Last week I cried to you about a little problem I was having, and I'm back to check in.

I had a goal to drink more water, stop snacking, and do all that good stuff. It looks like it's paying off, I'm down 3 pounds. Yippee!

I'm also doing no sugar with Amanda and co, and I have to say that it is working. It has been a week and two days and it's really not been a problem. I said no to brownies and pie this week without feeling deprived. In the interest of full disclosure, I was force to drink some kind of poi and banana smoothie at the ward potluck following the parade on Tuesday. I didn't actually want any, as it looked rather grody, but it tasted really good. I'm sure it was full of sugar.

In other good-for-me news, I went to the gym yesterday. My friend told me about a Pilate's class she attends, and I told her I'd meet her there. But I went to the wrong gym. I didn't realize there was more than one. Since I was going to be too late for the class, I went ahead and had a tour of the Martinez Gym. Then I headed over to the other gym and picked up a class schedule and spent a half hour on the elliptical machine. I guess that was fun, but living in such a beautiful place, I think it's silly to work out on a treadmill when I could be outside, you know?

I'll check back next Thursday and let you know if I made it to the Pilate's class...

I have gone to a few Pilates classes, and I've enjoyed it very much! I'll be interested in hearing what you think of it.

No sugar? Could I do it? I need to try to start eating more healthy and start drinking more water.

Wow that is so great that you dropped 4 pounds. I recently have done the same thing. I am so addicted to chocolate. Not sure how to get around this one yet. Have been working out everyday faithfully for a month. Excieted to keep progressing with the weight loss. Only 36 more pounds to go!
