PFP Week 5 Update

Happy Valentine's Day everybody! Johnny and I celebrated yesterday by going to one of our favorite places in the world, Lincoln Park Zoo. My special gibbon friend, Caruso, had a baby, so we wanted to go check him/her out! Awww! Just one month old!

My progress for the week:
I have stopped weighing myself everyday because I'm not a fan of the constant reminder, or seeing it go up and down .2 pounds here and there. I am down 5 pounds since my weigh in last week, but I'm not sure how accurate that is. We did not eat out once this week, I made sure to stick to the meal plan. When others hanging out with us got fast food, I passed. We walked a lot at the zoo and also every time I go to the store I park at the end of the parking lot for the extra exercise.

Beth updated us on Facebook:
She is down 1.5ish pounds!

Jennelle is a new PFP member:
She has already lost 12 pounds on her own before joining the challenge!! She's down 3.8 pounds this week and accredits it to not drinking.

Mel has good news:
She is officially down 1 pound!

let us know:
She avoided temptations at work and bypassed the treats and extra large cookies from a luncheon!

Beth (aka Biz) reports:
She maintained her current weight loss this week and is neither down or up. (Beth's husband was recently diagnosed with cancer, so she's been dealing with the stress of that. I'm really proud of her for keeping on a healthy track despite all that stress! I know if it were me, I'd probably be living on a drive-thru diet.)

Menu Plan for the week:
(I still have some of the items from last week to get through. I'm going to list healthy items in this section and will get to them in the next week or two, since I haven't been good at cooking them up right away!)
Baked eggplant parm
Chicken and barley soup
Fish Creole

Tip of the week:

If you already have a Netflix account, it is a great place for workout and exercise DVDs. If you have streaming, all the better! I've streamed videos on my computer and through our Wii. I love it because you can try out a bunch of different types of workouts without the expensive of purchasing them only to find out you hate them!

I have netflix and I never thought to use it for workout videos- thanks for the great idea!

I'm lame--still chugging along but was/am caught up in drama and the flu :(

I love gibbons! My fiance works at the Denver Zoo, so I get to visit all the time. Thanks for suggesting Netflix for workout DVDs. I would never have thought of that!
