A Little Incentive

Nutritionally speaking, the past few days have not been my best work. I may, or may not have eaten a bowl of icing.

But, that's all in the past. See how quickly I bounce back! ha ha

I went shopping again last night and bought myself a little incentive. It's a pair of size 10 Calvin Klein denim capris. That's the smallest size I have bought in my entire adult life! I know how much everyone loves it when I dress-up my pillow, so here you go.
We should probably give that pillow a name.

Anyway, I tried them on and I could do them up, but they were a little snug. There was some muffin-top action happening, but not for long.

In less than two months (time-off approvals permitting) we will be on vacation. I will be wearing these size 10 capris on said vacation. If I want them to be comfortable and look good (which I obviously do) I will have to whip myself into shape by then.

My healthy eating plan today includes some low-fat cheese, chili (again?) with lots of veggies and a dinner of roasted chicken, potatoes and carrots. My post-workout snack will be my standard popcorn, apple sauce and raisins with loads of water. The workout today is a tough one, strength and cardio combined. It always leaves me feeling floppy and like my arms are going to fall off.

What's your favourite workout? I'm always looking for something new!

Have a good and productive day everybody!


  1. Good for you with that tough workout. I love kickboxing and zumba. I want to lift weights more but just never do!

    Thanks for dropping by on my SITS day. It mean so much to me!

  2. I am also a HUGE kickboxing fan and zumba is a lot of fun! Thanks for dropping by!

  3. I am loving that pillow idea! so great to see someone motivated to eat healthy & get exercise.
    thanks so much for stopping by my blog on my SITS day, I really appreciate it!

  4. So glad you stopped by and introduced yourself! Love the new capris (and LOVE the pillow model), and wow...the quote from CF is great too!

    (I'm also digging the green color of this blog. Unfortunately, it has me thinking of key lime pie at the moment, and since it's 6:30 am, I must.stop.looking...)

  5. I love strength training because some days I just don't feel like working out and strength training always feels like something I can do on those days that wouldn't be so always ends up that I get a horrifically good workout and can't raise my arms over my head to shower after or stand for any length of time so it works on every level.

    Pillow name: Ilene A. Little. or the more obvious name Muffintop

  6. Ok first off, I have never heard anyone else talk about being a "brick house" besides my sister and me!! hahaha! I will be 40 this year and looking forward to being a brick house myself! That pillow model is a real hoot! I bought the "slim in 6" video last fall and I think it's really good! Worth a look!

  7. My sister is using Slim In 6 right now and she seems pretty impressed with it too. Maybe I'll have to give it a try.

    Here's to Operation Brick House! lol
