Week 31 Progress
How is everyone progressing over the summer? There is an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables out there and I hope you're taking advantage of them. My mom has an interesting technique that she's been trying. She makes sure her plate has more fresh fruit and vegetables on it than meat or pasta. She is also ending her day with fresh watermelon or cantaloupe instead of ice cream.
It's also the perfect time of year to be grilling, so cut fat and calories out of your diet by tossing steaks, chops and chicken on the grill! Remember to stay away from fried foods, heavy sauces and fattening desserts. Try to think about how you can exchange low fat snacks for the calorie laden snacks.
One more thing - are you getting in some exercise each day? Make an effort to do something, anything, if you are physically able and have the clearance from your doctor to engage in physical activity. My mom recently started a 5K running program and I'm going to have her stop by next week to discuss that and share what she's learning.
I got a lot of emails this past week asking me about motivation and how I started on my weight loss journey. Visit the quick links tabs at the top of the page to quickly access former blog posts where I discuss these topics. You can also search for specific information on my blog by using the search box on the right side of the page.
And finally, visit my videos on U-Tube, which are also listed for your convenience at the top of this page.
Until next week - eat healthy, exercise and be fit for life!!
