Check in - Sizzling Hot for Summer Challenge

Weight this morning is 185, so down 2 pounds from last week. It's been a rough one with not feeling well. My weight was up almost all week and started coming down yesterday. I couldn't eat much yesterday because of feeling nauseous. Will try to get back into the exercise schedule today.

Hope everyone else had a fabulous week!!

MizFit has a post about the scale. My thoughts were confirmed by this info I posted near the beginning of my blog.

Here's helpful info from Denise Austin:

Eat Right!

Master the Six Diet "Dos"

I can't wait for you to be the fit and fabulous person you want to be — and you will be! Now that you're creating a healthier you, you need to learn how to avoid common diet mistakes:

  • Eat so that you're satisfied! Believe it or not, if you want to lose weight, it's important to eat! Skipping meals can leave you feeling weak and hungry, which leads straight to overeating. Eat when you need to, but make sure you limit yourself to nutritious, strength-building foods!

  • Include a variety of foods! You've heard of diets that focus on one food, or that exclude whole categories of food from your life. Go for balance instead! Sweets, pasta, and breads have a place in your eating plan. The key is moderation! Make healthy foods the foundation of your meals.

  • Quench your thirst! Water helps you burn calories, boosts your metabolism, and fills you up. How's that for multitasking? Bottoms up!

  • Concentrate on your health! Diet pills, crash dieting, and products that promise instant results are never a good idea. A slow, steady, balanced weight-loss plan like mine is the most effective and the safest. You'll feel great, and you'll protect your health too!

  • Teamwork helps! Staying motivated is key! Find an exercise buddy at your office, ask a friend or family member to help you stay on track, or take advantage of my amazing online community!

  • Get moving! If you're already eating healthy, exercise can tone muscle and give you lots of energy. Even just a few minutes a day can make a huge difference. Give it a try!
