Saturday Update

Get this…I have lost 4.8 pounds since Monday. Woot!! AND, I have done it with exercise and withOUT starving myself. Oh. And without taking “miracle” pills. This is the most success I’ve had with weight loss ever. Even back in Cali when Jennifer and I were walking five miles a day. I didn’t lose ANY weight at all then.

Last night for dinner we had baked rigatoni. Once again, it’s a recipe that I got from Cooking Light and it is one of our favorites that we have just because we like it. When we’re not dieting, I don’t follow the recipe and add whatever amounts of cheese I would like, lol. I also make the sauce from scratch which is so much better than jarred pasta sauce and it has a lot less sodium.

This morning, I cut five minutes off my elliptical run because I was struggling BAD. I didn’t drink my Cranergy this morning and I could really tell a difference in my energy levels. I knew it boosted my energy, but I didn’t know by how much until this morning.

The Mister is at work on duty this fine Saturday morning. I’m trying to brainstorm some ideas for stuff for the girls and I to do today.  I’m thinking movie and popcorn night. We’ll see.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!


  1. We didn't lose weight with all that walking because though we walked all night, we spent all day on our butts eating junk food. :)

  2. That's great, the wonders of exercise! I don't believe in cutting down food and dieting either.

  3. Jennifer~~Actually, during that time, I was weight training in the morning, walking five miles in the evening, and had cut my calories down to 1200 a day. So pretty basically, I was starving myself for no good reason, lol.

    Josette~~I actually am dieting, I'm just not starving myself. I'm eating right and stopping when I'm full instead of eating until I'm stuffed. Everything in moderation.
