Low fat in '07

So, I'm not really starting anything new with my fancy resolutions, but I did want to kind of write what i'm working on down, so I could keep it in mind, and hopefully get some support.
1. Work-out for 2 hours/week (with the TV). I am hoping to slowly change this to 3 hours/week. my friend Lara's mom is doing a new workout program on BYUTV called total body workout. I am hoping to do this 3 times a week (and it's an hour long) but it doesn't start til' the 22nd. After 3 weeks off working out (shame on me) I got-up and did an hour today. It's amazing how great I felt after it.
2. Weights 3 times/week. I got a fancy little card set at Costco with 50 different weight exercises to tone and build muscle. I'll let you know if I love it.
3. Cheese once a day sugary yumma once a day. Period.
4. One super healthy meal/week. Tonight we had balsamic vinegar chicken, vegetables and somer SUPER whole-grain bread. It was yummy and filling. I am really wanting some super-healthy recipes. I want to increase the # of healthy meals we have (I am realizing that not all our meals will be lowfat because kids like cheese -- as do I, but I want to try harder). So, if you guys have good recipes, post them, or email them to me. I really need suggestions.
5. Oodles of water/day. I had to pee twice while at Albertson's today. And no, I'm not pregnant.


  1. My sister-I-L said her Dr. told her to drink half her body weight in ounces of water every day. Yikes! That is a lot for me, but something to work towards. Does skim milk count?

  2. So how many hours do you dedicate to scrapbooking per week?

  3. I'm right there with you on the weight loss, I started at the end of December and I'm working on some similar things with meals and exercise. Here are some meal ideas and I'll forward some more onto you sometime
    -spinach salad with grilled chicken
    -stir fry with brown rice (white for the kiddos)
    -baked chicken parmesean (light on the pasta)
    -grilled chicken
    -low fat, homemade chicken noodle soup
    -turkey sandwiches
    Hope this helps. Please feel free to e-mail me some of your ideas. ps...thanks for the housing advice, I'll let you know what's up in my e-mail.

  4. Those are awesome goals - sounds about what we are still working on too. I heard about the water thing per body weight somewhere too in the above comment.
