I haven't weighed myself yet this week, I will probably do that on Friday- I am 2 1/2 weeks in and thus far at my last weigh in I lost 1 pound. Really??? 1 pound?? I mean I wasn't jumping up and down but it was a start at the scale moving in the opposite direction. However besides the scale I feel AMAZING! I feel pure and not toxic because I'm not putting all these toxic foods in my body and can I say I am actually saving money. I know right?? Saving money?? But I can't do quick runs to a fast food place because I have a urge to fix a hunger fix I have to snack on something I brought. Plus I have to say with my big salads and 1 apple I have for my dessert (I know be jealous) I am stuffed! So we shall see what the scale says this week. But I have channeled my inner chef because I've been getting my hands dirty with trying new recipes, which is very exciting!
Will keep you posted.
Now to what I thought was a good topic for this week's Workout Wednesday. So with the weather becoming much warmer here in Chicago (yay!) and the months drawing nearer to summer its a perfect recipe for a nice big glass of wine, jug of iced tea, or a iced cold beer. However those thirst quenching drinks can add up (rather quickly might I add) to some empty calories. And no one wants that when we are prancing around in a bikini (or in my case a bikini with a towel wrapped --several-- times around). So I came across this article from Fitness Magazine called: Sip Smarter: Guide to Healthy Drinks. I thought it was worth sharing.
