While I was at BlogHer one of my meetings was with Healthy Choice to learn more about the Better For BlogHer program. We leaned that there are new flavors coming out this fall and that one of the favorite items that is currently out is the pumpkin ravioli. I’m going to have to go out and try it. I tried the lobster ravioli and was reminded that I only eat seafood at a restaurant that I can not afford to actually eat at because I hate when fish tastes like fish. I’m sure this just means that I’m not really a seafood eater.
I had a one on one with their dietician Tara Gidus and we talked about how I can fight my chocolate addiction and how to just spend a little time exercising.
For Tara, who also loves chocolate, spending money on really nice chocolate and eating one piece of something that is really good keeps her from eating an entire bag of the cheap chocolate. I remember when I did have some Godiva chocolate and the same thing is true for me, I hate spending money on nice chocolate but if it actually satisfies my craving and makes me eat less then I’m going to give it another try.
Two, when it comes to exercise just getting up and doing something is better than doing nothing. I know I’m not alone when I admit that exercising is difficult and I feel like it has to be all or nothing. That’s just not true. Something is better than nothing and something leads to more. The more you move the more energy you will in turn have.
Good News is after all of the walking in New York and eating smaller meals more often, I’ve actually lost weight. I have no idea how much because my husband broke my scale, but I do know that my jeans are too big. This afternoon, I dug in my closet and pulled out a pair of my older jeans that I haven’t worn since I became pregnant with Zoe. I wanted to go jumping up and down I was so excited. Size 6.
What do you think, do I look ok?
