Fit Friday

To take a quote from Jillian Michaels,"If you fail to plan you plan to fail." A little harsh there Jillian. Well, for me this is so very very true especially in regards to food. I need to plan out what I'm going to be eating and have all of my food supplies.

I always always have my snacks prepared and with me. This is because if I let myself get too hungry I'm more likely to want to eat a meal like this...



Rather than a meal like this...



John would probably like it if I failed to plan this week. We're both on food lock down right now.

Our afternoon snacks of Southbeach diet granola bars (they are so good they taste like a treat...especially the Smore ones) have been replaced this week by snacks like celery sticks and peanut butter.

He'll thank me when he's able to wear tight shirts and skinny jeans. That's just a joke...I think he'd rather go naked.

Well, last week I let you know that my summer goal is to have arms like Jillian Michaels. So here's my update on that:

  • Started a new strength training regimen
  • I've also been doing periodic push ups against the couch throughout the day
  • Arms feel tighter
  • They're a little sore
  • They do not yet resemble Jillian's
  • I think it's going to take awhile

Tomorrow is John's birthday. There will be cake...Gelato cake...Toblerone Gelato with chocolate cake...mmmmmmmm...it makes celery sticks and small portions totally worth it.

I hope your week is ending well and that you have big, wonderful plans for the weekend...

Great plan. I need to get better at the snacking part, so hard sometimes. :) Have a great weekend!

Love the new signature at the end of your posts! I hear that JM's 30 Day Shred is all the rage now. I belong to a gym I never go to, so perhaps that would be a better use of my resources....

I am also on food lock down. I look forward to my low fat babybel cheese every afternoon. It's the little things, huh?
