Weekend Turtle Steps

smallturtleThis weekend, I’ll be making a couple more steps in the direction of better health and fitness:

1. Checking out a nearby gym with John. It’s very new, very inexpensive/no fills, and may be just right for us.

2. Getting a workout by moving some more boxes out of my storage unit and into our garage.

3. Sticking to my food plan and weighing in on Sunday at my regular WW meetings. FYI, all of my weight changes will be updated weekly on my Weight-Loss Progress page, accessible by clicking on the tab at the top of this page. I’ll be adding photos as the weeks go by.

4. Buying a simple healthy cookbook. Any suggestions? Think VERY simple, people. You cannot underestimate me enough in this particular area. At the same time, I want to be cooking with whole, mostly unprocessed foods as much as possible.

What are you up to this weekend? What turtle steps are you taking toward your goals?

  1. I decided that I will exercise BOTH weekend days — not sure these are turtle steps for me though. I’m committed. I normally exercise all week long and take the weekend off. I need an extra dose.

    I can’t think of a cookbook though if you’re doing WW, they have some choices.

  3. You take turtle steps, I tippy toe. :) It all works, right?

    My turtle/tippy toe steps for the weekend are to grill my protein for the next few days and have it ready and waiting in the fridge and to rake leaves like crazy so that I don’t have to go the gym. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Love this: “Getting a workout by moving some more boxes out of my storage unit and into our garage.” YES. I’m all about this kind of exercising – just getting fit through normal life. Rock on.

    Re the cookbook. Hard to say. What kind of foods do you like to eat? And what are your food challenges? Time? Willpower? Vegetables? Knowledge?

    I don’t have many cookbooks.. I use the internet for recipes for the most part. But I too would like to find some good cookbooks focused on simple cooking and whole ingredients.

  5. Staight A’s College Cookbook, Diabetes and Heart Healthy Meals for Two, and Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook are all great and pretty healthy! Hope your weekends going well:)
