52 Mondays came to me in a fit of New years resolution fury. It seems I am always starting my "diet" or exercise plan on "Monday"! Well lots of "Mondays" have come and gone and my butt and thighs are still as thick as a Chick-filet shake (you know what I'm talking about!!) That is when I thought OK there are 52 Mondays in year...52 is a doable number of making small changing in my life that will hopefully change to number on the scale in a downward fashion. Come join us on the journey of 52 Mondays to getting our butt, thighs and almost everything else that shake and moves a little smaller. If want to be a contributor (and you know you do) just leave a comment and I will add you to the list of contributors! This is a blog were we can share our successes and failures on the hard journey of weight loss and just plain physical wellness.

Week Three Check in-Asia

I did a bit better this week. I worked out 2 times plus I shoveled my drive way twice and did a lot of house cleaning. At the beginning of the week I was at a new low-Yeah! I was down 4lbs but gained a pound back. The weekends always seem to set me back, so I need to be a little more determined and not let that happen. I hope to work out 4 times this week and be much more disciplined with my eating.

I have a few suggestions for healthy eating. I bought a sesame ginger dressing/marinade last week and used it to marinade some chicken and then I cooked some stir fry veggies in the dressing mixed with a little hoisin sauce and served it over rice. It was pretty good and the dressing was pretty low in fat/sugar/calories. It was a nice change for just grilled/broiled chicken. I have also tried it with the same brand of dressing but a red wine and olive oil herb variety. In the summer, I will just put a light glaze of olive oil on Mahi Mahi with herbs and grill it up. It is pretty good and very healthy. I think I need to pick up some more fish the next time I am at Costco. You can also make Baja fish tacos with Mahi mahi that are tasty and healthy.

I am looking forward to more healthy recipes and I am also excited that Eli will be doing p90x. With two of us watching our food consumption and exercise, it should be a little easier to make good choices.
