Good news to report this week! My butt is getting noticeably firmer! Those stairs - they are a wondrous thing. I think my pants might be a little looser, but I'm not sure enough to report a definite yet. I hope I'm not just dehydrated.
I'm up to two times a day hamster running on the stairs, and I'll move it up to three next week. Unfortunately, I've only done yoga twice this week, and I skipped one day of stairs because I was feeling like donkey poo. I also need to find a yoga DVD that I actually like, because I feel a gazillion times better when I've stretched myself out several times a week.
Valentine's Day didn't help the diet (damn you, peanut butter cup eggs!), but other than that I've stuck it out pretty well. No fast food, I switched to nut mixes for snacks, and when I absolutely HAD to have something sweet, I made cheesecake cookies with Splenda instead of sugar. They were quite yummy. And I've only had diet soda twice this week - which for me, the original diet soda addict - is a minor miracle in itself. I'm all about water and tea now. I hope I can keep that up, I've noticed a definate increase in my energy levels and a stabilization of my moods. I'm sure Air Force Guy is happy about that.
And then there's that miracle of diet foods - Special K with Chocolate. Oh how I love it.
So, report in SpouseBUZZers! How did you do this week? And what suggestions do you have for us?
