Crunch In....

Well, today was good. I got in 20 minutes on the bike, and a 10 minute pilates to add to my extra 10 minutes from yesterday. Yeah!!! Two Points for exercise.

As for the eating.... I am eating like a diabetic. The idea is that you eat small amounts six times a day, about 2 hours apart. You even get a bedtime snack, and I find that I lose more if I eat it:) You eat certain combinations of food that burn up each other. This is what I lost the weight on last January, and after my second baby-30lbs that has stayed off. It is the most manageable for me because I LIKE TO EAT and the weight stays off. I could eat this way the rest of my life. You can basically have anything you want, if you eat it in the right combination; though I try to keep the fat as low as possible, with lots of fruits and veggies. Sounds complicated, but once you learn it's easy. I have the metabolism of a ROCK, and this seems to get me rolling. Hopefully it will help me again.

Since it's all ladies here... the girl problem did arrive, and that has given me the sweet craving that I spoke about yesterday. Does anybody else crave sweets during that time. Tonight, I had a baked apple with very minimal brown sugar as my bedtime snack with a glass of skim milk. It was very satisfying , and reminded me of an apple pie:) without all the sugar and fat.
My bedtime snack consists of a fruit, fat-free milk, and a carb. This is the combination that your body burns up at night.

Let's keep it up! The Lord can help us. I must look to Him for strength, cause I am weak on my own. Happy Crunchin'!
