It's Fitness Friday with the Wii Mommies! Stop over there - they have fun stuff happening today and tomorrow!
Yes, it is really my 100th post on this blog! (Keep reading for a giveaway!) Wouldn't it be nice to report weight loss on your 100th post? I think so. I wish I could call this a weight loss blog, but it really is more of a weight struggle blog. This blog is all about being honest and sharing the difficulties as well as successes, so maybe it is appropriate that I have to report a weight gain today. I gained a whole 1 lb this week! :( I did not keep track of what I was eating; I did not drink water; I did not do Wii Fit even once. You can see why it is no surprise that I had a gain.
I do know what I need to do in order to get healthy and lose weight. It's no mystery. I've done it before. I have plenty of healthy recipes, weight loss tools, and the fabulous Wii Fit! My struggle is with motivation. I thought about saying that I struggle with commitment too, but if I am motivated, then I can be committed. So it's all about the motivation!
If you've been reading here a while, you know that I don't beat myself up over a gain - it doesn't help me. I start fresh and try again. One good thing that I can say is that over the past 7-8 months, I have stayed below my starting (maximum) weight. It's the longest amount of time without an overall weight gain in the last 4 years or so I think. So that's good. But not good enough! I need to get some weight off for my health and my comfort!
I started this blog to help me get healthy and lose weight, to share healthy recipes and tips, and to talk about the struggles along the way. Now that I am at my 100th post - I would love some feedback from you!
Finally - the giveaway! I have a $10 Starbucks card to give to one random commenter!! All you have to do to be entered is leave a comment with some feedback for me about this blog. What do you like about it? What do I need to add? What should I change? How often should I post? I really do appreciate your help! If you would like an extra entry, subscribe (or tell me that you already do) and leave a separate comment and/or post about it on your blog or on twitter and leave a separate comment. The giveaway will be open until Monday night 3/16 to give you plenty of time. I will post the winner on Tuesday 3/17!
Why a Starbucks card for a healthy blog? It's one of my favorite places to have a treat that doesn't ruin my weight loss efforts. Here are some of the healthier treats I enjoy there:
Grande Skinny Flavored Latte (hazelnut or caramel)
Venti Iced Skinny Flavored Latte
Caramel Frappuccino Light - Double-Blended (makes it creamier with no ice chunks)
Reduced Fat Coffee Cake
Petite Vanilla Scone
Thanks for stopping by on Fitness Friday and following my ramblings! Thank you to all of you who come by to read my blog even when I haven't posted as often! Please leave me some feedback and get that giveaway entry!
