Check In - Day 6 Of My Health & Fitness Journey

Hi everyone!!! I just wanted to stop in and let everyone know how my health and fitness journey has been coming along. Well, today, is the 6th day of my journey and things have been going great!!! I found an awesome online health and fitness website, SparkPeople, on Tuesday. I've been solely using it ever since to track both my nutrition and fitness. I still use the demandFitness website for workout videos. I have not logged into the Weight Watchers website since finding the SparkPeople website. I'm strongly considering canceling my subscription with Weight Watchers. The SparkPeople website is awesome (did I already say that...LOL) and it's FREE!!! The site is packed with a wealth of information, tools, and people to keep you on track with your health and fitness regimen. I love it...and the members I've met on there are awesome!!! If anyone is interested, check it out at!

Here's briefly what my health and fitness regimen consists of:

-Goal: To lose 41 pounds by 8-25-09

-Cardio: 4 times a week

-Strength Training: 3 times a week

-Yoga or Pilates once a week

-Multi-vitamin a day

-Biotin pill a day

-1390 to 1740 calories a day

-184 to 266 grams of carbohydrates a day

-36 to 64 grams of fat a day

-60 to 144 grams of protein a day

-Try to get more sleep at night

-Drink at least 8 glasses (64 ounces) of water a day

Today, I found a recipe on SparkPeople, from one of the members, and I cooked it for dinner. The recipe was for Creamy Mushroom Chicken. I added asparagus as a side dish. Not only did I enjoy dinner, but so did my husband and son. Here's a picture of dinner tonight:

Dinner was mmmmm...mmmmmm good!!!

Well, that's it for now!!! I will be back on Monday to give you an update on my weigh-in. I will be measuring my weight every week on Monday. Wish me luck...I sure hope I've lost some pounds...even if it's just 1 pound...LOL!!!!
