What we do is innocent

Friday workout - 20 min. HIIT, legs

Sat-Sun - =(

Mon - 20 min HIIT, arms and abs

20 minutes wasn't much, but it was something and I got a great sweat out of it. For some reason, the boyfriend and I get really lazy on the weekend. We are going to concentrate on getting a workout Mon-Fri and not so much on the weekend. I think 5 days a week of workouts is a good thing.

Hooray for semi-good eating. Yesterday, I planned out all my meals and with a few non-planned items, I have to say it was a good day. I only had soda ONCE! And it wasn't even that much, maybe about 4 ounces. Soda is so my downfall every time. I love the stuff. But Dr. Oz says you should treat soda like a dessert. And you don't have dessert all throughout the day. You have it once. So, soda once a day isn't so much a bad thing. And maybe one day, it'll be once a week. But right now, I'm just working on not drinking it a gazillion times a day. Baby steps, my friends.


  1. i WISH my downfall were soda. it seems like everyone tells you to cut that out and the pounds will drop away. i work to keep off my 30-pound loss and it's hard enough w/o any interest in soda. but, chocolate... now you're talkin'! congrats on the 4 oz. "baby size" swig!

  2. thank you!

    actually, I heard somewhere if you cut out soda, you would only lose about 5 pounds a year! somehow, that doesn't sound like a good trade off =/

    yeeesh, chocolate is a toughie...

  3. "...you should treat soda like a dessert. And you don't have dessert all throughout the day..."

    WHOA. Total light bulb moment - thank you!

    We are suuuuuper lazy on the weekends, too. :( We *try* to get out to the river to walk at least once, but when we're also trying to cram in all the house keeping, laundry, shopping, and other errands, it falls by the wayside.

  4. chibi - your welcome! I heard it on the radio the other day. Good words to live by. I don't even have that much to do on the weekends like you do, but I am still lazy. I think when the weather is nicer, our outside activity increases. I'm just twiddling my thumbs waiting for spring to get here.
