Last week was a great week for me to start eating healthy and working out daily. I lost 4.6 pounds since Monday! I worked out about 30 minutes on the elliptical machine every day. It sure helped that my hubby got me a new Ipod Touch. It makes my workout just fly by. I added some really upbeat Contemporary Christian music to my Ipod and it makes me want to complete my workout. I think I am going to step it up to 40 minutes per workout this week. I am trying to ease myself into it. When I got on my elliptical the first time, I could only do it for 6 minutes, so I have been working my way up over the past couple weeks. I feel fantabulous!!!! Well, here is my menu for the week.
