Log updates

I've been much better wrt eating and food choices. Thinking before I eat. Reminding myself of a couple of mantras ~

1. WIWM ( what I want most - health, looking better in clothes , rather than a second helping..)
2. I don't do that any more ( not stuffing myself with food when I was upset!)

3. If they can, I can ( reading a book about Skinny Chicks and reminding myself of good choices)
Been very busy so some days have only worked out 30 minutes or 45 minutes but I have continued to work out every day. Mostly a mix of cardio with a little bit of resistance work - Taebo, Turbo Jam, Jane Fonda....

These two pics remind me of some of my progress these last four years...

Wow, Leonie, FABULOUS! I remember your old forum avatar and I always thought that you were so beautiful because you just glow and radiate confidence! The picture of you now has all that, PLUS sass. You look so comfortable in your own skin. I would love to look and feel like that too. :)

How are you ladies going? Since I have been more mindful of my eating lately, rememberng my6 mantras :-), I'm feeling healthier. How I feel has a direct relationship with how and what I eat. :-)
