Bonus Buy

Last weekend, I went to Sudbury which is the city that is closest to where I live for some shopping!

In Walmart, I came across a display of workout DVD's.....they had all different kinds but the ones that stood out to me were....can you guess???

If you guessed Jillian Michaels than you were right!
I bought her Yoga Meltdown, Banish Fat Boost Metabolism and Biggest Loser Last Chance Workout. They were each $6.83, what a steal!

I have done 2 of the 3 so far this week and I am looking forward to trying out the last one later today!

My eating has NOT been that great this week but I have been working out like a mad woman so hopefully it will even out!

I called a dietitian service yesterday that is offered through the Government of Ontario to see what they would say my calorie intake should be daily.

I have been tracking my intake on SparkPeople and everywhere I read on the Internet gives me a different number to aim for so I thought a real live person may be most helpful .....but get this, Eat Right Ontario dietitian say because I am breastfeeding and working out regularly I should be eating 2,000 calories a day!!!
I asked if I should lose weight with that amount of calories and she said with a firm tone "YES!"
I find this hard to believe.....
mentally that seems like a huge number to me and physically to consume 2,000 calories a day...that is a whack of food when I want to eat only healthy food.
I could easily get that with high calorie, rich, garbage for me kind of food, but I am not going there.

So I will stick with trying to eat 1,800 calories daily or close to that!


  1. sounds like you've got a grea plan going...if you can do the eating and working out the results will sure show!
    That's a great price for Jillians DVD's! have a great weekend

  2. I think I should become a nurse maid for some mother so I can eat more! LOL

    And, yes, let's meet up this summer! I would love that.

    How's the competition going with your hubs????
