DAY 49 Weight Loss Journal

Happy Monday! Today, I’m getting right back on track with renewed enthusiasm, paying attention to what I’m eating, taking a walk – which always, always, always helps and then tackling the avalanche of work back at the office!

How do you get back on track after diversions like travel, relatives visiting from out of town, holidays and celebrations? Tell me about it!

Cheers,

DAY 48 Weight Loss Journal

It’s Sunday night and I’m hanging in there. How are you doing? Winding down the weekend and looking forward to the week ahead can be a good time to set the tone for a winning strategy. Recognizing that every day is a fresh opportunity to take good care of yourself is something that fuels my momentum.

What works for you? What are you looking forward to in the coming week?

Sweet dreams,
Lisa

DAY 47 Weight Loss Journal

Okay. I am tired, people! I’m having too much fun to sleep. Does that ever happen to you? We have been discussing whether to go to Paradise Cove or Crystal Cove, but we are heading out to the ocean and we’ll see where the day leads. My Sister-in-law loves design and houses as much as I do, so I’ve been sharing my Design House dreams with her, plus the pics from my recent trip to the Coastal Living Design House in Coronado. I promise to post pictures as soon as I’m allowed to release them! You can visit the Design House yourself July 16th through September 30th 2014. Tickets are $25 and a portion of proceeds benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation.

DAY 46 Weight Loss Journal

It’s Friday. We have family in town. We had a blow out day at Universal Studios, yesterday. Old patterns are showing up; staying up late into the night, talking and laughing leads easily to opening another bottle of wine. Large red wine glasses can be really deceptive, too!

Today, we are headed to a star studded celebration of Independence Day. Another set of challenges await me at the BBQ, even though, I’m prepared with healthful choices.

Cheers,
Lisa

DAY 45 Weight Loss Journal

What trip to LA would be complete without at least one celebrity siting? Today’s visit to Universal Studios was an absolute blast and these out takes with Mario Lopez doing his own broadcast just had to be shared.

This was the most challenging food day I’ve had so far. I don’t think I’ll weigh myself tomorrow! Even after dancing with the #FunPatrol and posing with the #Transformers I think I consumed more calories than I burned.

Without much trouble, I’ve convinced the clan to go for a walk. We’ll log about 7 miles round trip (not sure I made that clear). We’ll hit LYFE Kitchen for lunch and then head in to Whole Foods to show off the wine bar!

DAY 43 Weight Loss Journal

Okay. This is going to be a challenge. Family visiting from out of town. I’ve done my best to prepare. I went shopping and portioned fresh fruits, cooked meats, made chili, Gazpacho, grilled veggies and more. Plus I planned in advance as much as I was able to have fresh, whole foods available to grab and go. Wish me luck!

Lisa
