Healthy Thursdays

I was thinking of this in terms of normal weeks, but since I am posting on Thursdays, my week for this will go from Friday to Thursday.

This is the first weigh-in, on the positive there is nothing to compare it to, so it's just a number. I have made a small change to the exercise goal, since it is getting quite icky outside lately, my goal is to walk or exercise 3 times a week. This can be with a video or such at home.

Weight: 278lbs
Exercise: 2 walks home and today I did 26 minutes of IntenSati workout video.
Food: Salad every day, but 1.

Speaking of salad, here are a couple of the salads I took:

Romaine lettuce, red cabbage, shredded carrots, diced onions, cherry tomatoes, cubed apple, and chunks of string cheese.

Iceberg lettuce, red cabbage, shredded carrots, diced onion, radishes, sliced black olives, purple grapes, and cherry tomatoes.

I almost always use the same dressing, I love Maple Grove Farm's Raspberry Vinaigrette. They list if there items are gluten free, gotta love that!

I am still continuing with the salad, but I am adding that I try to turn to fruit or a healthy snack instead of candy or other sweets.

Now I am off to make BBQ Chicken stir fry with LOTS of veggies. Hope everyone found time to take care of themselves this week!


  1. Mmm. looks yummy prepared, ready to eat.
    I don't use store bought salad dressing at all. Never liked them. I use Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil, Salt and crushed garlic (not always garlic). That's the basic I use, sometimes I add herbs, and other spices too.

  2. Go, you! That's a great looking salad.

  3. Sounds good! I've been thinking about the "be more active" resolution, but it does seem like it might be the wrong time of year for me to get ambitious about spending hours outside. Of course, I could always just climb stairs at work or something like that. We'll see what happens, I suppose.

  4. Weigh in! Congrats!
    Are you doing weight watchers? Or something else?
