Consistency is the missing key.

I have been in a funk lately but that is getting better. I have exercised three times this week and we all know exercise makes us feel better. I was off work today so I took advantage of that and went to the gym. I worked out for a little over an hour. It got me to thinking about the people on the Biggest Loser. They worked out for 5+ hours a day! No wonder they dropped weight so fast! Bodybugg said I burned 846 calories. Cool! I wish I could do that every day.

I had a protein shake for breakfast. After my workout I had a wendy's berry chicken salad. Yum!

Now hubby wants to go to the movies. I will see how many calories I had left and will decide if i'm getting anything there. Probably dont need to. I've been eating around 1800 calories a day but am thinking I might need to go down some. I am hoping for a loss this week but just hoping wont do it. Have I done what is necessary to lose weight? I have not done as well as I could have. Consistency is what will get me there. That is one thing I have not done very well in the past. I am going to work on that.

Make it a healthy night my friends!

UPDATE:  Went to the movies and my husband got a LARGE popcorn, LARGE bad of candy and the only thing I got was a LARGE diet coke.  I did not even ask for a bite of his either!  Yay for me!!

  1. 5 months to St. Jude. Are you going to be prepared? You've still got time to make it happen.

  2. Betty--Very nice. I must admit--when it comes to movie popcorn, I'm weak---so weak----and it's soooooo goooood. But I know all popcorn is not created equal---and the calories of the movie variety---is just off the charts...So I typically refrain as well---but not always. If I get some--it's always the smallest available---and I always share. Just enough to taste that amazing flavor---but not enough to do too much damage to my brain. You're amazing, my friend. Keep a rockin' this thing!!!! ;)

  3. Oh---and yes---consistency---oh my---it's paramount to a sane and successful transformation. Your commitment to running is very inspiring to me. Thank you!!

  4. No matter how slow you're going, you're lapping everyone on the couch!
