I'm continuing with the Jillian Michaels DVD's, and she's kicking my butt! It hurts to reach across my body today after doing the "6 Week 6 Pack" yesterday. It's all good, though. I have lots of energy, and I'm sleeping like a baby.
I was just telling Ted this morning that I feel like this Phase is moving faster than the 1st one. I'm sure it's mostly because I've been able to eat things I couldn't in Phase 1. But I also think that, since I've started exercising, I'm really starting see results in my body. That little belly we ladies get that we all love is smaller; my clothes are fitting better; I have a little more stamina everytime I do a workout.
I'm very excited about trying the Power Cookie tomorrow. It's not very big, but it's packed full of protein and good carbs. I'm considering sticking with the Phase 1 diet tomorrow, and adding the Cookie in as breakfast with a smoothie and a potato for lunch, since each cookie counts as 1 starch. I'll let you know how it goes.
I was hoping Ted would write something, since I feel like I've been bogarting the blog. I'm really looking forward to his post about exercising. I just suggested that we do a 5K the end of April, and his response was that "5 meters sounds better." Hmmm...that's not the motivation I was going for.
Oh, by the way, since we can have crab in Phase 2, Ted made some amazing crab cakes last night! I'll get him to post the recipe. Very filling and satisfying with a big spinach salad.
