Last week I posted some very exciting, life-changing news – I’m engaged! Because of that, and because a new year is always a great time to set goals for myself, I have been trying to live a more healthy lifestyle. I want to cook more frequently, more low-carb and I want to lose a few lbs.
An update on the cooking part: last week I tried to make Spaghetti Squash as a part of an asian-noodle inspired dish. I did everything properly, and I think the squash turned out ok…but the dish was a disaster. Horrible. Smelled up my entire kitchen. Trying again for something healthy this week, but with a bit more trepidation.
An update on the health stuff: I started taking vitamins for my hair, nails, and skin because my nails have been so brittle lately and my hair is definitely suffering from this cold winter! For snacks, I have bought some of the Yoplait light yogurt (you HAVE to try the red velvet!) to have every day as well as some Frigo Cheese Head Light Cheese Sticks, and I’ve been sticking to my whole-wheat english muffins with Smart Balance peanut butter on them or a bowl of Cheerios in the mornings. The rest of the day I’m usually out and about, but if I’m home I enjoy some of the Marketplace Organic Salad with my homemade dressing drizzled on top.
Oh, and I’ve lost 3 lbs this week! I’ve been drinking a lot more water and I noticed that it always comes off the fastest in the first week. I’m looking forward to meeting my 15 lb goal sooner rather than later! I’ve been using the health and fitness tools from Walmart, and they have really helped to keep me on track and keep me away from candy and cookies.
Thanks to my friends at Walmart, I’m able to workout more frequently thanks to the Kinect and Xbox 360. What suggestions do you have for me as far as games go? I hope to share with you my fitness progress in the next post! Share your ideas with me in the comments!
