A Good Start to a Good (hopefully) Year

We're now 21 days into 2010 and I've actually done a fairly good job of keeping up with my exercise and diet goals. It's really quite amazing because usually I fizzle out after about a week. :)

I owe my exercise success to has been the Wii Active 30-Day Challenge. It's really gotten me pumped and motivated. I've missed the last couple days because I haven't felt well. But I've noticed a difference in my energy level when I exercise. I've been doing the 30-Day Challenge at a "Hard" level and it's been kicking my butt. Seriously there have been days when I've wondered if I would ever walk again. Another thing that has helped is that I have a friend that texts me when she gets up early in the morning to exercise. We stay accountable to each other and it keeps us honest.

As for my diet, I've found one that should help regulate my insulin, and ultimately regulate my menstrual cycle. (I'm sure we can all do to be more regular) It also helps with weight loss, but I don't have much I need to lose. Anyway, as part of my diet, I've been writing down everything I eat and it has been an eye-opening experience. Apparently I really really like breads, muffins, junk food, etc. I'm eating a more balanced diet and it's also added to my energy level as well. I'm also finding a lot of really yummy and healthy recipes. I'll post soon!

Hooray for us all getting back on the horse! Let's stay on it! Glad to see action on the blog again!


  1. I would love it if you would post healthy recipes. Thats where I need help. If it doesn't taste good I won't eat it....

  2. I'm with you, Amy. I know I need to eat better. Less processed foods and stuff, but I just can't make myself do it!

  3. I agree. I have a hard time coming up with yummy foods to cook. I LOVE pastas and breads too so that is about all I make.
