Weight Watchers Update

It is my second week on Weight Watchers, and I'm feeling the burn and feeling healthier. I feel like it is easier this time around and I am more motivated. Last night we were already making plans for our vacation at the beach in July, can't wait.

To date, I've lost 3 lbs, and I am even seeing results in the smoothness of my skin and slimming of waist and arms. I've been doing my Wii Fit, twice a week. I love the flexibility of the different exercises that the Wii Fit offers, you can focus on yoga, step aerobics, boxing, strength training, hula hooping or even jogging. Plus there are alot of fun games that focus on your balance. Another Wii Fit game I am starting to like more and more is Julian Michael's Fitness Ultimatum 2009, boy does it hurt! It is basically like a boot camp for your body; it focuses on motion fitness of toning and cardio with workouts like monkey bars, tire jumping, jogging, canoeing and ladder climb are some of my favorites. This new game I just heard about is My Fitness Coach, which has a virtual personal trainer that demonstrates over 500 exercises for flexibility, cardio fitness, strength training and even lets you custom your environment, track your training on a calendar and lets you set personal goals. I think I am going to buy it tomorrow, now that I got paid, whoot whoot!

My end goal weight is to get to 165. My is to loose 20 pounds every 2 months. The ideal time for this is 6 months to loose, but in reality I am going to add another 1.5 months, since my body might plateau.

~ Adding lemon juice to your glass of water can help break down toxins in your body. This is a lovely tip that I learned from my friend Rose, who is a nutritionist.

Yay! Congratulations! Keep up the good work.

P.S. I always add a lemon wedge to my water. It's good for you and tastes good too. :) Obviously, it does nothing for my weight! LOL!

Oh no: my wife wants a Wii, too (and I'm afraid it will fall into the same hole as the yoga tapes ...).
