This was a good week for me. Remember I didn't weigh last week so the 2 pounds I have lost has been over a two week period. But as I have said before its better than a poke in the eye.

Last week while traveling I pretty much ate fast food. I did make good choices and do my best to cut down the soda consumption. When I have fast food I really like to drink iced tea, I am not a good iced tea maker, but I really do like to drink it.

I have been noticing that my arms and legs are smaller. We switched to AT&T uverse a couple of months ago. We have a channel called FIT TV. My oldest daughter has found this channel and appointed herself my personal trainer. Talk about motivating...she wants to spend that hour with me. Maybe its only so she can laugh at me trying to exercise but sadly she is at an age where I take what I can get.

Amber gives us a question each week to help us learn from each other. This week the question is:

Post a picture of the contents of your fridge so everyone can see how much healthy food is (not) in it.
In my attempt to keep it real I didn't try to neaten or rearrange anything even though I cringe everytime I open it these days.....summer is killing me!! My daughters have best friends that are sisters and they are always at our house or theirs. That gives me not 2 girls but 4 girls! I shouldnt complain, they do not mind fixing their own food! But then I end up with this, things just shoved in! BTW: look hard, not much healthy in there. *hangs my head in shame*


  1. Well....there is some yogurt in there!

    Great job on the 2 lbs!

    Keep at it!

  2. Wow girlie! Your fridge is packed!

    So cute that your daughter has appointed herself your personal trainer! And what a great way for the two of you to spend time together!

  3. Ummmm, do you have any diet coke? :) Two pounds that's great. I would almost do anything to loose 2 pounds, well except diet and exercise. Oh come on. I am trying. :)

  4. Good work on the 2 lbs! :)

  5. Mmm, pizza sounds so good right now!

    Great job on the 2 lbs...that's better than me!

    Keep up the good work!

  6. Congrats on the 2 pounds!! I lose 2 pounds, then I gain it right back. Then I gain 2 more, then I lose those. Then I lose 2 more, and it's just a vicious cycle.

    I want cable SOO sooo badly. And when I get it, I cannot wait to do Fit TV. That is so great that your daughter wants to do it with you!! Bonding time!

  7. Yay for 2 pounds!!! I love Fit-TV as well, and BOTH my girls act as personal trainers. Gotta love 'em! :)

  8. How come everyone has bigger fridges than me!!!!

  9. Thanks for the tip about Amber's web site. I'll check it out! Congrats on the weight loss!
