Today's weigh in was much better than last weeks! I lost 3 1/2 pounds but that's the extra weight that I gained the past few weeks/months. But, I guess it's a good start. I would still like to lose around 5 to 10 pounds but these pounds have been really hard for me to lose. My main goal is to be healthy and not so much the weight loss as it is toning my body. I was a gymnast for many years and have that muscular build. I just need all my muscle to be "muscle" and toned (not flab underneath or in between). I just started doing a Zumba workout at home and although I haven't mastered it completely, I like it and can feel it working my body. They say you can lose 1000 calories an hour. That would be Great- because then I could eat even more. (LOL) I need to continue to eat healthy. I love to eat fresh fruits and veggies and I can add in a few ice cream or other treats as long as I exercise and keep it in moderation. Another big concern, it to not east fast food as my summer schedule gets busier. I like to eat at Subway or bring fruit or other healthy snacks as to stopping and getting junk food along the way. Until next week's weigh in ... I will be eating healthy and exercising!!

This Monday's weigh in was... What I expected(BAD!!) You will be mad at me!!! I gained again. It wasn't just this weekend that got me!!! It started on Thursday- this week. Ok... I have alittle bit of an excuse- Sunday was my Birthday and I ate to Celebrate. Starting on Thursday at Gymnastics we had a Party. I had a brownie Sundae- then Friday morning- I was thinking that I was going to blow it this weekend and had ice cream for breakfast. Then on Saturday, my family took me to Red Lobster. The Lobster and Crab legs would have been low-fat- But... I love it with Butter and those Cheesy Bisquits- (I had 3) Then on Sunday, we were going to go to the diner before my daughter's Softball game and ran short on time- so I had McDonald's and Pizza for Dinner and Cake -so that explains the extra Two pound Gain!!!! Today is a new day!!! I started this morning out right!!! I did my exercise routine and am eating healthy. This is going to a better week. I'm hoping that by next Monday- I'll be back on track!!! Since, Eating Pizza and breads are a huge downfall of mine, I would love to try the Flatout Bread and continue to eat my fruits and Veggies.

It doesn't take much to get from whole, natural almonds to Silk Pure Almond milk. Each glass provides an excellent source of natural antioxidants,and as much calcium and vitamin D as dairy milk, with absolutely no cholesterol, saturated fat, dairy or soy.

Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that has been studied for its role in supporting normal heart and brain function, as well as promoting a healthy complexion. Each serving of Silk Pure Almond provides an impressive 50% of the recommended daily value of this essential nutrient. To make sure your diet includes the full spectrum of beneficial antioxidants, pile on plenty of colorful produce in addition to healthy staples like almondmilk.
Check out all these Benefits of Almonds: New to nuts? Not to worry. Almondmilk really can go everywhere: · Splash almondmilk on your favorite cereal.

Monday Morning again... I weighed in this morning and I gained another pound. I know that the weekends get me. I'm pretty good all week, trying to eat healthy and get in my workouts then the weekend rolls around and I blow it. Then weigh-ins on Monday's really stink!!! I have wanted to lose these extra 5 to 10 pounds and now... All I end up doing is gaining. I know- I have only myself to blame. I'm not motivated.. I can't keep using excuses about my back hurting or not having time- I just got to DO IT!!! So-today I will make time to get in some exercise and eat healthy. I've gotta get out of this slump... I need to start up my old routine and use the Wiifit and do the EA Sports Active Workouts. I also just bought the Zumba workout DVD's and need to do these too. I know what I need to do... It's time to Do it!!!! Next week, I will have better results and I'm hoping to start losing weight again and/or losing inches and looking more toned.

Googly® Bands are fun shaped silicone bands for boys and girls. They stretch out to wear and then bounce back to their original shape! Kids can collect all the styles and trade with their friends. Googly® Band shapes are unique and proprietary designs created by Imperial’s in-house artists. Styles include Cars, Musical Instruments, Zoo Animals, Treats, Dress Up, Sea Creatures, and Dinosaurs. More themes will be introduced frequently to ensure maximum collectability.
Googly® Bands are packaged in an eye-catching OPP bag with 12 colorful designs inside. OPP stands for Oriented Polypropylene which allows bright graphics with a window to see the product. OPP is moisture resistant, durable, environmentally friendly since less material is required than a traditional blister card package and is recyclable. Googly® Bands are the hottest collectibles!! Googly® Bands are for boys and girls aged 4 and up, and are at most major retailers including Walmart and Walgreens. They are already blowing off retail shelves, so get them fast. New styles are in production non-stop. Starting June 1st 2010 Imperial is accepting submissions for the First Ever Googly® Band Design Contest! The Winner receives a $50 Gift Card and a chance to design the new style. Check out all the Details at www.Googlybands.com
My Thougths: My children were excited about these Googly Bands. My 11 year old daughter thought they were "Pretty Cool" and she put them on right away. Then when my 8 year old son came home, he said "Awesome" and immediately put his on. They couldn't wait to wear them to school the next day. My son came home from school so excited, thinking he was really Cool and he said all the kids in my class want them. A few other kids in his class had them already, but I'm sure the rest of the kids were going to be asking for these soon. I have seen other children wearing these and they all seem to just love them. I think that they are a cute collectible and are a reasonable price. They have so many different styles and designs to choose from and they make cute little gifts. I like that they are collectibles for both boys and girls. The girls can also wear these in thier hair, they are made from 100% silicon so they won't pull on the hair during wear. And I like that they are not tight fitting, so when they wear them on their wrists, they don't leave marks like traditional hair ties would.
*Disclosure: I received Googly Bands samples for review purposes. This is my childrens and my own thoughts and opinions.*
