Isla de Angela ~ gaining inner peace, losing extra weight

February 16th – 22nd (Weeks 6 – 7 on plan)

Posted on: February 23, 2010

Feb 16th – Feb 22nd (week 6 thru 7)

*Note – I assume my actual numbers are higher.  I don’t add every condiment, dressing, and seasoning because I use such small amounts and I also take a few daily supplements that have minimal calories.  Homemade items are just estimates, too.

*Note on Greens To-Go: I found this product at Costco and thought it sounded really healthy. I don’t care for the taste, though, and it’s kind of grainy, too. It’s more tolerable added to a Powerade Zero than just to water. I don’t want to waste the product so I will use it but am undecided as to whether I’ll buy it again!

They say that muscle is heavier "by volume" than fat is, which means 5 lbs. of muscle takes up less space than 5 lbs. of fat within a body. I'm a believer. This totally explains how your clothes begin to fit better even though the numbers on the scale aren' t moving very fast.



This is GROSS. I know. But I'd rather see the fat HERE than on my body...


Each time we “resist” an urge to fall off plan or not exercise we strengthen our “resistance muscle” and each time we “give in” to temptation we strengthen our “give in muscle” making it easier to either "resist" or "give in" next time.
