Happy Healthy Monday
Happy Monday.. Hope everyone had a great Mother’s day. My day wasn’t anything special but it was nice and relaxing. I did by myself a new laptop, it’s purple. Yeah me. My netbook was driving me nuts. I kept hitting the wrong keys so I needed something else. The netbook will be nice for traveling, like to Chicago next month.
Health wise this week was just okay. I did have a gain this week but I did got out to dinner the night before WI so it was expected. I am disappointed that I didn’t make my 115oz water goal. I will keep the eye on the prize. Speaking of water….
Aquahydrate is our sponsor this week. I haven’t heard of them so I had to check out their site. I would be very interested in trying this. Sounds like a nice crisp clean water. But do you know what sold me on it for sure? Did you check out the true believerspage? Hellooooo Mark Walhberg! That man is hot. If he is drinking it I would love to drink it and dream about him while drinking it. Okay.. must move one.. Oh Markie Mark..(did I just age myself)
Okay back to my goals this week. I have scheduled time to exercise this week. I am planning on doing the Wii fit or the EAS Active, I have both, and actually getting to the gym at least once. I am trying to get into the mindset of changing one small thing at a time. I find if I try to change everything I get frustrated and quit.
Okay I better get some work done.. boss is in a “mood” today. Yeah me.. Have a great day everyone!

YAY for a new laptop!
You know, I think we all hit a crunch this week with it being Mother’s Day, so don’t be too hard on yourself.
Pick up this week like next week didn’t happen and run with it!
And yeah… drink your water!

Mmmm….I love strawberries and we have a grip here. Page Bayer just did a recipe for strawberry lavender jam.
Hey Karla! Have you started a food journal yet? I’d love to get you doing one. I think if you do, it will really help you. XXOO

that recipie sounds so good! I may have to go out and get some strawberries! Keep drinking that water!
You’re doing great! Small changes lead up to big losses!!! You may not have made your water goal, but think of all the foods you’ve eaten this week that contain water!!! You more than likely did make your goal. 🙂
That strawberry recipe looks yummy. I’m going to try it. I tried another recipe once that mixed strawberries with balsamic and I was surprised at how well they went together.
I love that you’re sharing recipes!!! YUMMY! Keep it up girl!
