Heading into Winter = Gaining Weight? Not in my book....

This week it has really started to feel nippy outside, and I fear deep inside as the winter sets in, that my lust for working out and sticking to the plan will diminish. I am taking every precaution.

I have started boxing classes 2x a week with "Downtown Leona Brown" in Beacon, and personal training with Keith of HV Fitness once a week. I walk fast/jog along the river, and try to head to the gym in NYC at least once or twice a week!

As for my diet, carbs have started to sneak their way back in, and before they can defeat me, I am on top of my calories and fat once again. I am going to blog , use this as a public food diary to hold myself accountable, and try to keep active despite the cold outside. I will avoid my pitfalls of freshly made breads, muffins, pies and cakes, and allow myself one cheat day a week to have something "naughty".

I do need to find a jogging partner up in Beacon, I know that it would be more fun and encouraging to have a friend to chat with while sweating up a storm.

What do you do to keep yourself going in the cold?? How do you stay warm? What fitness classes or workouts are you doing that are fun?? Is anyone out there??

Stay warm and healthy..while I figure this all out!

Monday Food Diary (so far)


Kashi/skim milk
coffee with splash of skim/splenda

Bowl of lowfat turkey chili

Snack 1:

6 pieces of sushi. Tuna , yellowtail and eel with tiny bit of white rice (wish it was brown)

dinner: Rest of the sushi

Popcorn for a snack

I cant remember now what I had..since it is Friday and I am amending this. Oops. I will do better next week!!
