Becoming a Healthier Me - week 2

This week I was afraid I wasn't going to loose any weight. I wasn't feeling the workouts as much and I think it's because I added 4 lb weights to them and those make it THAT much harder. I ate some good meals but felt like I ate just as many bad meals. But, I did loose another 3 pounds! I was shocked when I got on the scale this morning!


I did my Pilates and Get Your Body Back video that I mentioned in week one. I tried the Cellulite Blaster which is basically 10 minutes of squats and kicks and I barely made it through it. Afterwards my legs were so weak I thought I was going to fall down the stairs. I went on a couple walks this week too.

Healthy Foods:

1. Tuna salad and sliced cucumber with a few cubes of dutch herb cheese
2. Cajun chicken breast and sauerkraut sandwich with veggie straws
3. Roasted red pepper hummus and pita chips for snack
4. Baked salmon filet, broccoli and herb angel hair pasta

I feel the need to point out that not ALL my meals are healthy, this week I had pizza, ice cream, chocolates and chef boyardee ravioli. It's not like I'm dieting, it's just little tweaks and trying to make some of my meals healthier. This week I know I didn't do as much healthy snacking as I should. Next week I'm going to try to eat more fruits for snacks and with my meals.

This week I've also been drinking lots of water, chocolate milk and wine. Water is obviously good for you, but drinking milk after working out provides your body with good protein and the Ovaltine I add to mine helps adds in extra vitamins. Red wine is also good for your heart so I've been having a glass of wine a couple nights this week.

Next week I hope I can add in some new workouts and hopefully more walks.

A few of you posted on last week and said that you were getting healthier too, how did your week go?

Pin It!


  1. I love drinking chocolate milk after a work really does make me feel replenished.

    All of your meals look delish too!

  2. good start! I've not been visiting blogs much recently. I'm helping wherever I can with my master bathroom remodel. My youngest is doing it. :D

  3. Keep it up! Smaller portions, a few healthier things, and more exercise than normals is all it takes. :) You'll be at your goal in no time!

  4. I love chocolate milk! I never thought to drink it after a work out thoo.... oooo yes!
