Vacation is over, now it's time to lose those pounds!

I had a fun carefree week on vacation, no counting calories no exercise (although, we did walk and swim a lot!) and no worries. The good news is I did not gain a pound, not one! whoohoo for that!

It's time to get back on track! I still have not met my 10 lbs weight loss goal :( I have a new schedule that is going pretty good but no pounds are being shed! So hopefully with no interruption my next couple weeks I will see some results!

Here are my goals for the week :)

* Tea and 1 slice of toast for BF.
* Only 1 small coffee a day if needed
* Salads for lunch everyday! :) (spinach and romaine with cottage cheese and chickpeas)
* Fruits and nuts for daily snacks (Melons, strawberries, almonds and walnuts)
* 5 days a week of home cooking, include many "green" veggies.
* Drink lots of water everyday! A MUST!
* Tracking calories on Iphone "my fitness pal app" 1300-1500 Cals a day
* 3 bite rule on sweets
* 3 days a week basement work out: Ab Lounge and Gazelle 1 hour work outs
* No fast food! (no burgers, no fries, no pop!) :) Kicking this habit right on!

Timr to lose some pounds!!

Update on my ovarian cyst. My doctor called today and said my last ultrasound was all ok. I'm going in tomorrow to get the details on that. But All OK sounds GOOD TO ME!!! :)

Hope you are all having a great week!


  1. Ten pounds are nothing...you've got them in the bag. That expression sounds weird but I think you know what I mean. :)

    Great news on the c-y-s-t!

  2. You look great! Glad to hear the cyst is not going to be a problem...YAY! XO ~Liz

  3. Love the picture! Looks like a wonderful time!

  4. i love your dress and shoes!! great goals for the week! last night i was feeling lazy and was going to skip working out but i read your twitter about how you were working out right then and that totally motivated me so i got up and did a 30 minute workout! thanks! :)

  5. Thanks guys!!!

    I really want to shed those 10lbs!!! :)

  6. I am so glad to hear that you didn't gain weight while on vacation. I hope that you have some sort of tracker to make sure that you are meeting each one of your goals above. If you go to caloriecount.com they will tell you with the information that you put above (i.e. exercise, current weight, etc)how long it will take you to reach your stated goal.
