Monday Beginnings

Before I get to the real post, I need to thank you guys. You have no idea how much your support meant to me when I was having a rough time. I am touched by your help, your hints, your advice and your concern. Thank you guys.

So, I am thinking I need a change. I need a break from counting points for a while. And I would like to make things for supper that both Prince Charming and I will eat. Who knows maybe he will be able to lose a little too. So, I am thinking of changing to WW Core. At least for a while. I am going to be getting groceries on Wednesday and the plan is to take my Core list with me and just get things off that list for the most part. I think it could be nice to change it up.

Another change I am making is I am changing my workouts so that I am doing more cardio and less strength training. The new goal being cardio three times a week and strength training two times a week.

So talk to me. Tell me your thought on it and on me changing. Do you have any tips to share? Do you have any recipes?

Hey. I think core is really gonna work for ya! The plan they have me on in this 10-week-challenge is pretty much core with one cheat day. Here is a site with lots of core recipes:

I don't know how to make it a link so you'll have to copy and paste.

Anyway, I think it will be great! Let us know.

It might be perfect for you. I tried it awhile back and well, I didn't make it a week. I have to be able to eat everything just smaller portions. Counting calories works great for me with one free day per week.. :-) Some people love Spark People!

On the exercise I think that is a great change! I do walking 6 days per week, with Leslie and only 2 days strength training and that seems to work great!

Any change is good for your attitude, your muscles, your motivation, and your taste buds!

Don't ask how I know this since I never did Core...maybe I had it bookmarked when I thought about trying it, but here is a link to recipe sites:

Good luck!

I think it will do you wonderful... I think I would join WW.. I think the meetings for you would be such movitation. You could probably be a leader after a while.

Go for it.. my friend. I believe in you

Good luck with Core, I know several people that have had great success with it!

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
