low point weekend

hi ladies! so i actually did it, i've had a relatively low point weekend. i've probably used 10 flex points but i usually use 35, so thats a victory. sundays are slow days usually but today i'm going shopping with my sister and we're putting up some christmas decoration so that will be good.

sarah and i are doing another exercise challenge if anyone wants to join. you can set your own objectives but mine is to do at least 4 days of cardio (30-60 mins) and 2 days of strength training, which will be new for me. i hardly ever do strength training and i know how important it is so i'm going to start incorporating it in! be sure to check out sarah's page...she has a great entry about safe amounts of weight to lose & the biggest loser!

after watching biggest loser this week and hearing a lot of talk about sodium, i've started paying more attention. i keep thinking of what kim said, to have around 300 mg of sodium in each meal. well last night we went for sushi and when i looked at the "lite soy sauce" bottle i was shocked to see that 1tbsp of LITE soy sauce had 1500+ mg of sodium! wow. i usually fill up a little dish with it and dunk away. needless to say i didn't use any. i need to do some more research on it.

another NSV: i went out to breakfast with my friends yesterday. why do i always feel like when i do this i need to get an eggbeater omelet, toast, strawberries and usually a bite of my BFs food too! so yesterday i ordered raisin bran w/ skim milk & wheat toast. "thats all your having?" my sister asked and yes, it was. and guess what, i was full all day. i need to eat out less and make smarter choices. that's what i'm working on this week.

happy december :) it's the most wonderful time of the year!!

Okay goodie..a workout challenge.
I will start tomorrow, and I am aiming for 4 days instead of 5 because it's so busy around here. I am aiming for pretty much the same as you. I usually do 20 -40 mins of cardio and 30 mins of weight training, so that's what I will be aiming for.
