So Far, So Good

In reference to my last blog post, A Game Plan, I wanted to write a quick update.  Yesterday, I got up early, danced to Michael Jackson The Experience (Wii game) and had a fairly decent day as far as food goes.  I wanted a piece of fudge (my weeeeakness!) in the evening, but I noticed that it would put me over my calorie goal for the day.  So, I ate the fudge.  Then, I danced some more.  Fair trade, I'd say!

Today, I got up early again and hopped aboard our (oft-neglected) treadmill for twenty minutes.  Oh, and a little while ago, partly because I was cold and partly because I just plain felt like moving, I did 25 jumping jacks here at work while no one was looking.

And, since I finally found my Baron Baptiste Live - Core Power DVD (featuring background music by none other than my favorite chanter, Krishna Das), I've given some serious thought to a yoga workout after Dalton goes to bed and before The Biggest Loser comes on TV tonight.  Especially since there's more of that oh-so-tasty fudge in our refrigerator.  I've already had two pieces of it this afternoon.  This will most likely NOT stop me from wanting yet another piece this evening.

Tomorrow morning, I plan to get up early once again, early enough to complete all 50 minutes of 10 Minute Solution - Kickbox Bootcamp -- one of the workout DVDs that Netflix instantly streams.  It's intense, and just what I need for a great midweek burn.

So far, so good.  Will this trend continue?  As long as I stay determined and have Mike by my side to encourage and give me a figurative swift kick up the booty when I need it, I have every confidence that it will.  I'm SO ready to report a decent amount of weight loss over on MyFitnessPal again.  Good day and namaste!
