to be perfectly honest, this has been an off week for me on the workouts. I worked out on monday evening on EAactive and it really was hard for me. I felt like passing out half way through the workout. The workout really kicked my butt then I was super sore for 3-4 days, and after that I just didn't have the motivation to start back. On top of that I was pretty stressed with the kids, and getting back into the schooling gruve, after the holidays. I let things go and would like to do much better this upcoming week. My appetite was much smaller this week and I felt I didn't eat much though which could go either way. I did drink more water than normal I felt, so maybe this is why but I also snacked more and usually I don't snack much. I hear snacking can actually help you not eat as much in the way of meals so it can help depending on what you snack on. as for me, it wasn't nutritional snacking but rather crackers, chips, cookies, and junk. ever since new yrs I have slipped. I am planning on getting back into the swing of things and tracking my nutritional intake, and meal planning which should help things but when money is tight it is hard to be good about the good healthy foods,meal plans. And breaking old habits is not easy for me.it's definitely a work in progress of babysteps.
I really hate how I seem to have an addiction to yummy foods and have a hard time saying no to them. I am praying I overcome this soon.
I have not voiced my opinion on this as of yet but Ido not agree in the whole idea of carbs being bad and meats being good as meats are packed full of cholesterol and my husband actually lost weight ( a ton of weight) when he dropped the meats for a summer and ate only breads,pasta's,and such. I do agree they are full of iron, and protein which is a wonderful thing but cholesterol is not, and I would feel much better following the scriptures that says "grains, fruits and vegetables should be the staff of life, and that we should eat meat sparingly.( Now I myself tend to love meat so I won't say I am all that great about this, but I do eat pasta's and breads, and such much more than I do meat. I also can't afford to buy meat alot which helps.) Now I realize that many of you will not agree with me on this idea, and that's okay, but that is my take on it, and my husband being living proof that you can lose weight with carbs and starches rather than gain. And he didn't even do workouts during that time either. He just cut out meats, and had his activity, at work. It is possible. :-)
now as for my health goals this week:
1. DRINK LOTS OF WATER
2. BE MORE ACTIVE WITH MY WORKOUTS AND GET BACK TO EA ACTIVE
3. EXCERCISE ATLEAST 30 MINUTES A DAY
4. TRACK MY FOOD INTAKE, AND FITNESS MINUTES
5. PLAN FOR MORE NUTRITIONAL SNACK AND MINIMIZE THE UNHEALTHY SNACKS.
6. NO FAST FOOD THIS WEEK AT ALL

this weeks question is: What do you find most challenging in skin care? I have always struggled with acne. Not near as much as I did as a kid, but keeping it free of this has always been an issue in some degree. I am also allergic to some lotions, and soaps so keeping my skin from getting irritated has also been an issue at times, teaching me to stay away from certain soap products, or fragranced lotions.
