Thanksgiving 2010

I have had this post saved for a few weeks, simply because my computer was acting up and it was taking about 30 min to download a few pictures at a time.
These are a few from Thanksgiving Day!

Weekend 6

We had a really nice weekend, but it was cold...brrrr!
The weekend diet was good, but not as good as past weekends. Plus, the whole week was just a little hard. However, I'm back at it!!! I have backed down on the 2lbs a week. That is possible, but I am 5'1" and it is more realistic to shoot for 1.5lbs a week. I have decided that is what I will shoot for from now on. It is especially more realistic considering that these 10 weekends included Halloween and will include Thanksgiving!!! Yeah..who the heck is giving up turkey, dressing, greens, sweet potatoes, cake etc...?!!! Not this chick!

I have been reading up on HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). I think I will give that a try. Maybe 2 HIIT workouts a week and then 2 other regular jogs or walks. Anyway HIIT is supposed to be great for helping lose weight. Apparently you shouldn't do but a few times a week and then only for a month or two and then just do regualar exercise for a month or so before circling back to it.

I do have some picutres coming up of Halloween and our week of field trips. Stay tuned!

Weekend 7

I just got a little swamped last week with too many homeschool field trips and then Halloween, so I didn't get a chance to post.

Weekend 7 went well. This week though it's been tough for whatever reason. I'm hungry. I will be eating more veggies, and making sure to get in some olive oil or coconut oil and some lean protein. Usually if I eat most of my calories earlier in the day it works much better for me. If I save calories towards the end of the day I end up starving.
There were NO Mounds in the Halloween stash, so I had to settle for Almond Joy. Almost the same except for the dumb nut right in the middle! I do love almonds and nuts, but not in my candy, cookies or cakes! Definetly not in brownies!!!
Do y'all like nuts in your sweets?
