Ten in 2010: Third Week

This was my third week of the 2010 challenge, and a hard week it was. I was sick all week and it was like a thorn in my side.
*Did not gain, but did not lose
*Continued with menu planning
*Not giving up
What I've Learned
*I hate bieng sick, my energy was drained and just not motivated to do anything at all.
*I don't drink a lot of water when I am not feeling well.
*I can go to a movie and not have popcorn
*When I don't exercise consistently it immediatly comes back to haunt me.
What I still need to work on
*Staying the course, with not feeling well I did not eat as well as I should have. However, I did not eat that much either. I call this my bandaid approach -the I don't feel well, will have something that will make me feel better and I will feel better. A vicious circle that just does not work.
*Fruits, still a big problem. I just can't seem to draw myself into wanting to eat it.
Other Stuff
*Stress is a killer. Sometimes I feel as if I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. I created this, by bieng the go to person for everything. Now I am not sure I want it.
*Back in the saddle again...
*Indian Food, we are going to an Indian restaurant this evening. Planning to look at the menu and make my choices before arriving.


  1. THIS is a NEAT blog and like how reader-friendly it is (some are so busy they hurt my head). In my job for a cooking software company I study blogs and one of the happy parts of this assignment is finding great sites like yours. I am so glad I found this! I can really relate to your goals and thoughts. Since I work for the company, I finally decided to try their product (DUH!) and it is amazing—it’s made my menu planning so easy and their health-oriented cookbooks have also been helpful! Without sounding like an infomercial, I wanted to tell you about their recipe organizer that’s simplified my life a ton. FINALLY I can find what I need, when I need it, without having to scour through boatloads of recipes and books! (I’ve included the link in case you are interested.) Lastly, thanks so much for a great blog—I love your information!

  2. Thank you for the wonderful comments. I try to post, maybe not as frequently as I would like, but what I like to read.
