Rabbit, I love getting my day started right -- helps with motivation. I wonder how overweight I would be if I didn't exercise!! I get really frustrated that with everything I do I still have such a hard time losing. I guess the exercise makes me eat more so it balances out.

Liz - you always have your lunch on here by the time I get on here - do you have an early lunch?

Yesterday I started a plan called "the wendie plan" that I read about at the ww site. It basically is a plan to eat a different point amt. daily so your body doesn't get used to one amt. or think that you are starving it. I like the idea, made sense to me, so I'm trying it.

10 minutes bike

BREAKFAST
oatmeal = 2
splenda = 0
peach & blueberries = 1

LUNCH
lean cuisine = 6

DINNER

green beans = 0
lima beans = 2

SNACKS
popcorn = 2

DAILY TOTAL = 27 POINTS
Banked = 0

FRIDAY

Rabbit, I eat lunch at 11 so I try and come on right after and put it in so I don't forget. I'm trying a new thing too. I notice that I eat 3 small healthy meals from 8 to 11 but then I don't eat anything after lunch until I'm ready for dinner. By then I'm starving -- or I go home after work and pig on something semi-healthy. I'm trying to continue my grazing in the afternoon so I'm more in control in the evening. We'll see if this works...

EXERCISE:
60 min treadmill (4.76 miles)
20 min abs and stretching

BREAKFAST:
eng muffin w/honey -3
ff sf yogurt -2
44 oz water

Liz - sounds like a smart idea to me. I don't think it's a good idea to get ourselves to the point where we are starving. Last night when I got home from ww (about 6:45 pm) ds had his pizza ready for his dinner - LUCKILY he did not leave any in the kitchen as I was starving when I walked in and it would have been hard not to eat a piece!

FRIDAY 6/21/02 GOAL 23 POINTS

EXERCISE
15 minutes bike
2+ miles walk
weights - triceps & biceps
**I read in my fitness magazine last night that after 6 weeks of doing the same activity your body adjusts to it and you burn 25% fewer calories!!:( So I thought maybe I'd do the bike for 6 weeks, then switch to the elliptical or something to keep changing.

BREAKFAST
oatmeal = 2
splenda = 0
blueberries = 1

LUNCH
salad = 0
parmesan = 3
soynuts = 1

SNACK
