The Best Things in Life Are...Free!!!!

Good Morning,
I first want to give a shout out to all of my new Followers! Welcome and Thank you for being with me on this Crazy Journey of mine. Yours and all of my Followers support is very much appreciated.
So, I have still been working out in spite of my knee pain. I’ve still been icing them and took 2 Aleve’s last night! The pain is a 6 on a scale from 1-10 but, I am going to Keep On Pushing through while listening to my body.

Thursday- 30 Day Shred Level 2 & Spin
Friday- Strength Training & Spin

I have been doing great with my food intake. Would you consider defrosted fruit used for shakes as a portion of your fruit intake? I use it when I eat cottage cheese, my parfait with Nonfat Plain yogurt and oatmeal but, it’s defrosted, blue/black berries, raspberries and strawberries. I know for a fact that I need to work more veggies in. I try eating one salad a day but, haven’t mastered that as yet.

This weight loss journey is definitely different from the ones in the past. I have been logging my food in at MyFitnessPal, same goes for my workouts and guess what? I peeked on the scale yesterday and was down to 182. J Let’s see if it’s real when Monday comes around!

Tonight Hubby and I are going to see “Ironman 2” and tomorrow we are going to NYC for lunch and some chill time. I love walking around in the city especially when the weather is nice and I have comfortable shoes. Speaking of which I need to get me a pair of cute flats to go with the new outfit in my closet, you know the one…. with the tags still on it, has never been worn in years but, you don’t give it a way because, you are hoping that one day you can fit it? Uhmm Humm Yup, that’s the one! I tried on all my size 12 dress pants and they all fit me! No cutting off the circulation, no riding up, nada!!! This has made me truly happy because, even though I’ve lost 26lbs, I was still wearing my size 14’s. So, now I have a new wardrobe without having to spend any money! Now, that’s what’s up!!!

I hope you have a great day! Remember to Keep On Pushing!!!
One Luv Ya’ll!

I agree with Ro on the fruit, totally counts. Grats on the "new" wardrobe. LOL. I have the same thing workin in my closet. Now just to get into them before they all go out of style.

I love finally putting on those "forgotten" clothes! What a great motivator!

yep, i would count defrosted fruit. but it's important to get fresh fruit, too. i've really been trying to get more fruits and vegetables into my days. for breakfast now, i'm doing a green monster, which is basically a spinach smoothie. here's more info:
this morning was my first time having it and i liked it. so i'll be doing that all week long. the spinach is especially good since i'm so anemic. so that's one way i'm getting my greens in.
