I just got back from my snowy trip to the city. I just finished putting all my veggies and fruit away and now I'm checking the posts here and then I'm hopping on my bike to do 9 miles.

I can't walk today because its snowing/raining and very windy.

How is everyone else doing?

Lucie, it takes me 30 minutes and 32 seconds to do 9 miles. I just upted it 2 days ago from 8 miles. Its a excersise bike that I purchased a few years ago. I've got it near our tv, so I either watch Oprah if its a good show, or if I decide to bike earlier in the day I watch a video. In no time, the 30 minutes is gone. I love the bike, some people don't.

There are a couple of things I've found over this past month. I love walking but I need someone to walk with me. It just makes it go by easier. So dd comes with me.

For the first time in my life, I've also learnt not to eat after 7 p.m. at night - it was a very hard struggle to begin but now it doesn't bother me at all when I give the kids their bedtime snack and dh has his.

I just got back from my walk/jog with Ayla :) It was sunny so I wore shorts and a tank top and hopefully I'm just a tad darker than before I went.

I think we were gone at least 30 min? I think I even went farther than we went lastime, but since I jogged more this time it did go by faster. Once we got back home, i put on my favorite song and did aerobics for another 10 min. straight and then toning/stretching for about 5 min.

I had about 3 bowls of cereal, one strawberry and one ounce of mozzerella so far.

I am planning on doing an ab workout, and if I ever get more lettuce~ i'll have a salad/corn on the cob/and roasted red potato's. Ahhh that sounds so good! I might even get cottage cheese to go with pineapple slices for dessert!!! MmmmmmM!!!

Hi Everyone!!!
Another family gathering today, and it went ok-actually I am very happy with what I ate-I stayed away from the junk food-chips etc and soda. I did have a small piece of birthday cake and a small amount of ice cream, but ya gotta treat yourself every once in a while.:D Of course they sent the rest of the cake home with us-even after I refused it- they gave it to my dd who put it in the car :( But I am not having any trouble staying out of it, so that's ok i guess

I did both of my walks today and will do the watp tape tonight at least once.

Whew!! I am glad this weekend is over-2 family gathering in 2 days with all sorts of junk food and I ate sensibly!! YAY!!
