Read an interesting article today about a moretorium on fast food locations in a low economic area that has very high obese rates. This article basically said that they are holding off on building any new fast food restaurants to try to give some restaurants with some more healthy options to come to the area. Great idea. I give them two thumbs up for trying! However, fast food is so cheap.....can the healthy options even compete with the fast food prices??? Does this area even want a change? And of course last but not least......this area already probably has 5 million fast food joints....will not building any for one year really make a difference?

I didn't weigh myself today. I've decided to wait a day or two. Optimally I'd like to wait until Saturday or Sunday. However, I know me and I'm thinking that I may give in and weigh myself tomorrow. We'll have to see.

However I did get up early and ride that exercise bike. I pushed up the resistance today quite a bit. I'm still suffering a bit of soreness but nothing terribly bad. I need to get myself to the gym to get my strength training in. I should go tomorrow. But that's going to be a hard one for me. I work from 10Am until 6PM. I could get up early and go in the morning. I know that after work I will probably not go. Yes, I guess tomorrow morning should be it. Maybe I should go this afternoon? I shouldn't because I need to give it a day between strength training workouts. I guess it's tomorrow morning.

Nothing else to post about thus far today. I'm working to eat clean and within my plan. I had oatmeal for breakfast. Lunch is a sandwich (2 points...tis a good thing that I love butter/jelly sandwhiches), an apple, grapes and some raw carrots. Dinner will be corn on the cob and chicken. I'm not sure how the chicken will be prepared yet..but I'll figure something out. Oh yeah, and I have a serving of leftover sauerkraut that I'll have with my meal. So I'll be well within my points range. :-)

Good job on the healthy eating and staying within your points. Sure wish I had your determination for exercise. I'm jealous.

I found you!! Well Michelle gave me your blog site!

Keep up the amazing work!!! Good idea on taking a day off between strength work outs. I am a morning exerciser so I vote that you go in the am. :-) The only thing is that I am bit more hungry as the day goes on.
