Question ~Instead Of~

I haven't seen one of these in a while, and I like them.

What has changed in your life since you've started your health initiative? List what you've substituted in your life, from before to now.

sit-down restaurants with family or friends instead of in-car fast-food binges alone

form-fitting sweaters and skirts instead of baggy, drapy shirts and pants

biking to the store instead of driving across the street in my car

vegetable-intensive lunches from home instead of greasy sandwiches and fries from the grill

water instead of Diet Coke

1% milk in my coffee instead of half-n-half or nondairy creamer

size 18 instead of size 24

exercise buddies instead of eating buddies

I second the exercise buddies instead of eating buddies! That's probably my favorite change so far!

Instead of full-fat cheese, 2% milk cheese

Instead of full-fat vanilla steamers, non-fat, sugar free vanilla steamers

Instead of feeling lethargic and tired, feeling full of energy and HAPPY

Instead of sandwiches, salads

Instead of potatoes, green beans

Instead of sleeping in, exercising

Instead of 169 lbs, 148 lbs!

Instead of baggy shirts, tight T-shirts

Instead of sour cream, 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 Z Trim

Instead of yoplait low fat flavored yogurt, Fage 0% plain yogurt with fresh fruit

Instead of circling the parking lot to find the closest spot, automatically going to the furthest parking area because it's always empty and you enjoy the exercise

Instead of diet soda, sparkling water (San Pellegrino or Perrier)
