Well, this week hasn't been totally great. A big minus, for eating anyway, was that my son had his birthday. I ended up and made cinnamon rolls for his breakfast, and a chocolate cake for his dinner. He did choose a healthy dinner, but the cake took away from the healthy choices at dinner. I haven't been eating much dessert for a long time, or even much flour, but eating that really messed me up. My stomach hasn't felt right since then. I even cut a very small piece for myself, which made only about 4 bites. OK, enough of sweets for me. It reminds me of that verse Rev. 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
I have been exercising with Jillian, walking several miles one day with my son out in town, and shoveling snow. After our huge snowfall, we have had snow twice. We didn't have much accumulation (2-3 inches probably), but still it was enough to take about an hour to clear. I feel like I should have big arm muscles from lifting, but so far it isn't happening.
Here is a tip for those that get bored of doing the same routine over and over. My daughter, Ashley, always exercises with me, and she was really starting to dread exercising. I remembered that we had picture in picture on our TV. We don't listen to Jillian anyway while we exercise. So we found a TV program she was interested in, and then put Jillian in the little picture in picture box. I told her she had to still do all the exercises, or we wouldn't do it any more. She exercised really well, and it did seem to help the time go by more quickly.
