Not enough Blogging. Not enough Jogging.

Nothing lost, nothing gained
The number on the scale
Made me feel pained.

I've exercised, but not enough
And I've eaten some fattening stuff.

This week I promise to recommit
You can join me, we can get fit!

Post your results for the world to see
Then find out tomorrow if you were lucky.

And, since it's hard to not eat trash,
Here's a favorite recipe from my stash.

Mango Salsa
  • 1 mango - peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 4 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 can black beans

    Mix it all together and let the flavors mix for 30 minutes before serving...... although we can never wait! Serve it over grilled chicken or salmon.

Amy Jacobs said...

down a pound.... hurt my hip doing yoga so have been rather dormant the last few days. Hope it starts feeling better soon. I actually want to exercise- I never thought I'd see the day.

Colleen said...

I am down 9 pounds since last week, but spent one day walking all around the state fair, and not eating a lot. Just couldn't decide which wonderful fair food to splurge on. then when I came home I had to have a colonoscopy. so 2 days of not eating, just drinking clear fluids, and of course the wonderful stuff that they gave me to clean me out. Yuck, not sure I wanted to loose anything this way.

Katie said...

It was a bad week for me...no loss, but no gain either. We'll see if it catches up to me next week or if I can get the ball rolling the other direction. The recipe sounds yummy....will be trying that this week. :)

Janie said...

I lost 3 pounds this week. Hopefully i will be more comitted next week so I do more exercising. I know the puppy would love it if I walked her every day as well as play ball.

Andi said...

That recipe sounds delicious and healthy. Can't beat that!

I've lost 5 pounds in the last week, but I just started. I think next week will be less.

irisbleu said...

I'm a total blonde!!! lol It never dawned on me what you ladies were doing. duh. I just started walking a couple of days ago. I have trouble with my asthma but aim to lose this weight. Congrats ladies on the lbs lost and not lost. At least there is no weight gain. I think. ;o) None lost here yet.

I have lost two pounds!! My exercise is a little off, but once my girls get back to school, I will be walking EVERY morning . . . no excuses!

Love the poem!

Stephanie said...

One pound down. Not much but better than one gained.

Catherine said...

No change here - 3 family birthdays in one week - fun but bad for the diet. Back to eating right and walking more. Salsa recipe sounds delish.

Erika M. said...

The teachers at my school are conducting a biggest loser contest - my goal is to lose 25 pounds by Thanksgiving. I've lost a pound this week - I'm walking 45 minutes for 3 days a week. It's definitely tough!

Nicole said...

Twelve glasses of water
each and every DAY
have helped me to "flush"
2 more butters AWAY!!

Now I have to go get the ingredients for that nummy sounding salsa - I think I'll have mine with cucumber "chips"

Robyn W said...

sue said...

Is is feed a fever or feed a cold? Either way, I've been down and out with a coughing/hacking/no sleep kind of ick and didn't have the energy to even get on the scale!

Gail S. said...

I tried this week but I did not succeed! Maybe better next week. I walk and walk & I think my body has gotten to used to the walking and I need to try something else.

Michelle said...

don't feel bad...didn't lose anything this past week either. I did good some days, then not so good on others.

SueB said...

This past week = -.2 for total of -16.2 ... heading in the right direction, anyway!
Thinking of posting weigh-in Wednesday cards on my blog ...

Holly said...

If you make a double batch, you can eat some now AND have some later!! :)

I haven't weighed, but I have had to pull my belt in another notch. THAT was a WONDERFUL feeling.

Donna Brisbois said...

Good luck Julie- you can do it!!!!

NanaBeth said...

Holding steady (nothing about me is firm at the moment). My parents were from Barbados and I grew up with mango and avocado trees in the back yard. How I miss them!

Lulu said...

Aaah.. I'm so ashamed to post... :( I am up 2pounds.. gah.. I've been doing a lot of emotional eating this week. Stress makes me reach for cookies... :p

Becca said...

I'm working off the baby fat...not sure if I lost any but I fit into a pair of pre-pregnancy jeans! That made my week! Now if I could only get them to be a little less snug. :)

Val said...

A terrible week, though I had my 50th birthday on the weekend, so it was celebration time...up 2 lbs!!

KathyT said...

Love the poetry and the recipe!

Tami said...

didn't budge either, but my legs hurt from squats..that's good

Tami Mayberry said...

More butter on my plate ;) Keep it up Julie, you're on your way. We all have those weeks, but tomorrow is a new day.

scandi said...

I am with you :( I didn't do well this week and gained 3.5 pounds! Maybe it was mostly water since I was camping in the hot sun last weekend!
I'm hitting the "South Beach" tomorrow to get back on track. I need to stock up on groceries tonight but I'm recommitting!!

AmyInKy said...

Holding steady here, but I'm going to start running with my son...soon.

Amy Wing said...

Well, I didn't post in time to be eligible for the prize, but I lost another box of butter! Not as much exercising this week, but not nothing, either! :)

Natasja said...
