I've been trying to stick to a diet filled with proteins and fruit, meat and yogurt and cheese and hard boiled eggs. It's helping, and I have more energy!
Have a great week all!

I'm hoping that you are finally able to see my blog... I'm a little technilogically challenged but I think it's there!!
I have enjoyed seeing Florence and Jody at the gym and it's really nice connecting with people that have the same goal in mind.
I'm very excited to be attending the Go Red For Woman Luncheon on Thursday. If you haven't been before.... it's a GREAT day!!
Hope to see everyone soon...........
I was late for the spin class on Sunday and wasn't able to get in but did the elyptical and some other exercises. Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night at WPH to hear about the nutrition portion.
Enjoy the Oscars!!!

Great turnout for our meeting at W2L. There are point sheets for us: weekly assignments where we can accumulate points. The sheets are in folders behind the front desk. So when you do that extra 20 mins on the elliptical, just tell personnel behind the desk to add it to your points sheet.
There's a meeting on Monday at 5:30 pm at White Plains Hospital in the auditorium.

Think about two women in your life that are important to you – friends, family members, or co-workers. Odds are that out of the three of you, one will develop some form of heart disease in the course of your life. Even scarier is that this disease can kill you! Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 killers of women, killing nearly twice as many women as all forms of cancer.
Over 12 weeks with the Better U program, you will learn your personal risk of heart disease and stroke and small changes you can make to live a stronger, longer life. Knowing what you need to do is not enough. Choose to start incorporating new, healthier behaviors into your life today.
Focus on Your Goals
Research shows that women who set goals are far more successful in changing their physical activity and eating behaviors. Following the SMART principles of goal setting you can improve your chances of success
Specific. Your goals should clearly state what you want to accomplish and by when.
Measurable. A SMART goal can be measured. "Two days this week I will ride my bike for 20 minutes."
Appropriate. Make sure your goals are right for you. For example, if you are already exercising regularly,
focus on decreasing saturated fats.
Realistic. A goal that is not realistic will never be attained. So why set it? Select a goal that is realistic for
Time frame. Short-term goals are the building blocks for long-term goals. Focus on the specific things you
will work on each week.
Think simple — and remember that lifestyle changes don't have to be drastic. Then pair your short-term
goals with a reward. For example:
Goal No. 1: This week, I'll find 30 minutes in my day every day to be physically active.
Reward: Go see a movie on Saturday with my best friend.
Goal No. 2: By the end of the week, I'll read two new articles about the benefits of eating healthy.
Reward: Treat myself to a new package of herbal bath salts and read a magazine while soaking in the

Muscles a little sore from yoga yesterday, but not bad, can still exercise so it's all good :) I presume this will work itself out as I do yoga more.

They will join seminars at White Plains Hospital and benefit from expert training at Will2Lose gym in Scarsdale.

Can't think of a better day to talk about women taking care of their hearts! Happy Valentine's Day!
It's Sunday and I have had a chance to read my BetterU guide and Sundays are *my* day to focus on the weekly goals and take stock.
This week my plan is to P-L-A-N. That's my first SMART goal. Second goal is to exercise 4x or more and goal #3 is to drink more water and get up to 3liters each day.
I already belong to a local gym and reacqainted myself with the rowing class this morning. Tomorrow, I will go to W2L for yoga and to meet up with Norma.
There is a new obstacle : my FIL is in the hospital and my DH is saying he needs to be ready to travel. That means I lose out on him watching Jonathan while I go to a gym so I need to focus on efforts to make my home gym a reality.
Okay, so it's time to get my groceries.
