This week in pictures- some of my new favorite things...

This is a free website where you can create a profile, decide how many pounds you want to lose a week, and then easily track your calories, exercise, and water each day. And did I mention it's free!
No excuses! This video breaks it up into 10 minute workouts! Week one looks like this~ Monday: Cardio Level 1, Tuesday: Upper Body, Wednesday: Cardio level 2, Thursday: Abs, Friday: Cardio level 1, Saturday: Lower Body!
I love Aldi! It's my favorite grocery store! And they offer a wonderful brand called Fit & Active, which is programed into the LIVESTRONG.COM website. That's how comprehensive the website is. You can track the meals you make at home, as well as, restaurants you eat out at.
OK, I have to say that I had no idea how many calories I was drinking a day until I started tracking on LIVESTRONG.COM. On Tuesday night, I met the girls at Boarders for Bible study, and I ordered a regular carmel coffee, from their coffee shop. When I plugged it in at home, I actually gasped out loud. It was 400 + calories! Eeeek! That's more than a Weight Watchers or Fit & Active meal I've been eating everyday for lunch! Then, (thank heavens) I came across this little baby at Target. It sweetens and flavors your coffee for 0 calories! A BIG FAT 0 LADIES!I love coffee. I drink at least 3 cups a day! So, Ms. Mocha Splenda -you are my new best friend! Oh my! Well, I had to include something frivolous! My sweet indulgence for the week is Coco Chanel! My friend, Ms. Ann had her 73rd birthday this week. So, we spent a girls night in together with popcorn and Coco Chanel! We both love watching old movies, and reading about old movie stars and such. I have my own long love affair with Paris, and I have always LOVED designer collections by Chanel and Valentino! Classic elegance, which is both simple yet sophisticated! Coco had a very complex and complicated life. And like most creative genius, tragedy seem to fuel her art and creativity. She was a very passionate woman in business, as well as, in her personal life. I loved this movie!

I think this is going to be something new for me each week. I'm going to do a little recap of what's been going on in my life, but, instead of writing it all down, (because I never seem to have that much computer time,) I'm going to do it in pictures with little captions underneath. I think it will be fun! Maybe I can even get a button made for it in case anyone else would like to join me. Hope everyone is having an eventful week! Love and Blessings!

I just reread your post because I wanted to write down the title of the biggest loser thing and saw the Splenda coffee thing. I AM SO EXCITED. I don't know how I missed it earlier-I guess it was because Will was nursing :)

Is the Splenda mocha stuff good? I'm curious about it? You always find cool things!
