Mid-Week Update

Following my last post about weighing myself almost daily, Christina and Lori commented and suggested that I put the scale away between weigh-ins. Christina has had great success with this which she has blogged about also. I myself have always thought not weighing myself between "official" weigh ins is a great idea. Daily weighing is a reflection of disordered thinking about my body. I recommend not weighing daily to others. But as with so many things, I have found it easier to preach than to practice. I am going to do that this week though. Christina - I like the idea of putting my scale somewhere less accessible.

My eating has been reasonably good so far this week. I've certainly had some carby meals, but it was never my plan to give up carbs anyway. And I'm getting loads of veggies in as well.

Exercise has been somewhat on plan. Here are my goals and progress so far:

SUN - Dumbbell Exercises (DONE!!)
MON - Walk w. Lisa: 13,083 steps (DONE!!)
TUE - Yoga Strength DVD (not done - I walked 2.5 miles instead)
WED - Walk on my own do Yoga DVD instead
THU - Dumbbell Exercises
FRI - Yoga Strength DVD
SAT - Walk w. Libby / Contra Dance

Unphotographed 100cal Yoplait Blueberry Greek Yogurt. This yogurt was so watery that there is no way it was greek yogurt! But it was tasty, though

Salad w. Spinach, yellow cherry tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, garbanzos, walnuts, babybel light cheese and greek dressing and an orange

Babybel Light Cheese

"Fried" rice: steamed rice sauteed with mushrooms, carrots, onions, peas, cabbage, ginger, soy sauce and pepper; Bell pepper and peanut stir-fry

Two spoonfuls of chocolate ice-cream

Oh man, putting the scale away is so liberating! I'm not a huge fan of the Yoplait Greek yogurts. My favorite is Dannon Light & Fit Greek yogurt; the Dannon Oikos Triple Zero Greek yogurts are good too.

Good idea about the scales and the incidental exercise you get from retrieving them is just a bonus!
