McFatty Monday's.

My husband is soo supportive.  I knew this already, but he really showed me again this week.  I told him I was really serious about losing this weight, that I felt very unhappy with myself and about McFatty Monday's.  I joined up at a website this week, sparkpeople.com, that will allow me to do what WW would (track weight, food, exercise, calories, find recipes...) but it is FREE.  I was thrilled and have been tracking my calories all week!  I have also been upping my water intake, this is the hard part for me.  I hate water.  I'm trying though.  I am feeling like I have more energy and also have been sleeping better this week AND less back pain.  I'm kinda surprised what a week can actually do.

Kris was very proud of me, he watched me doing my semi-lame Wii Fit Plus workout (mostly advanced step aerobics for 20 minutes and boxing) and saw that I was actually seeing some progress (how I felt if not in numbers).  On Thursday he told me that since I was doing so well and he knew I was being serious about this he took me shopping.  He told me to pick out whatever new workout outfit it was that I wanted, and he went to get something.  He got me The Biggest Loser workout program for Wii!  Yay!  So far it's really neat.  I hope it really does me some good.  I will still do some Wii Fit Plus stuff on the side too of course, but this way I won't get bored.  I went and did 40 minutes on the Elipitical machine at our apartment gym this week too - I'm keeping it mixed up so I don't get bored with one thing.  I wasn't planning to get anything new to workout in, but I found stuff on clearance and Kris said I needed to enjoy working out and feel comfortable so new clothes it was.  I thought that was sweet of him.  Then he took me to payless to buy new tennis shoes (I don't have any workout kind, just comfy kind).  I used a gift card I had from my dad left over from my birthday, so I was cheap. 

I've been doing better with my eating habits too.  I have been enjoying the all fruit bars for a treat a night, only like 80cals each and soo yummy.  I have tangerine, strawberry and pomegranite ones.  I also have been eating my eggs either poached or hard boiled.  I have been eating more grilled fish, or tuna and wheat thins for lunch and lots of steamed veggies.  I always have enjoyed healthy foods, I just need to remember to eat them! 

No new weight today, I didn't weigh myself this morning and then I worked out and now I'm eating lunch so well, I'll save the weight check for tomorrow morning and I'll update you then.  :)

Not sure where you live, but Target has the drink mix (generic crystal light) that have zero calories in a bunch of flavors. I drink a lot more fluid if I make a pitcher of that than just plain water. Some people ay the artificial sweetners are bad for you - but it work for me.

Keep up the great work and your husband is a sweetie!

Uggh I hate water too! REFUSE to drink it, unless it's mid-summer and it's ice cold! So you are one step ahead of me! You'll do great! You are off to a great start! I lost 13lbs doing just what you are doing, well...minus the water! =)
