Living the Good Life

Hubby and I have been talking a lot lately about how much we love the changes we have made to our lifestyle. We're setting great examples for our kids and we really do feel good. We allow ourselves to indulge every now and again, but for the most part, we are not finding it very hard to stay on track.

I had a moment of truth last week when I was filling out a health and lifestyle questionnaire at the gym. The question was "How are your eating habits?" and the possible answers were a) Poor, b) Average, and c) Excellent. I was happy that I could confidently say that my eating habits were excellent. It felt great to write that down with four months of proof to back it up.

Can you keep it up for 3 weeks?
I read something a while back that said that if you can keep something up for 3 weeks, then it becomes a habit. I kept that in mind all throughout the first 3 weeks of the IsaGenix program and am doing the same for these first 3 weeks of working out at the gym. It's really not that hard since I'm loving it so far. I love it so much, that I even went in today to burn off some of the calories from the pile of ribs we ate at our Canada Day celebrations last night.

That aside, I have been stuck in a bit of a weight loss rut lately. I'm pretty sure that the shift from fat to muscle is playing with the numbers on the scale. I'm not too concerned about it since I know that all the choices I'm making are the right ones, but I am anxious to see the numbers go down - atleast a little bit...
