5 Week Challenge, Day 2

May 29, 2015

I did some shopping yesterday!

The last time that I went to Jazzercise, I knew I would have to buy new shoes before I went to another class. Walking Shoes are NOT Jazzercise shoes! 

And speaking of walking shoes, those babies had a few miles on them and it was time for a new pair! Good shoes are important!



I bought a pair of workout pants at TJ Maxx a couple of weeks ago that I love! They are fairly high waisted and the waist band is wide, so they stay up when I’m jumping all around! I found a few new pairs to jump up and down in!


Now I’m really ready for my 5 Week Challenge!

I walked one mile in my new Walking shoes, and I jumped up and down in my new pants while wearing my new Jazzercise shoes!

I ate some yummy food, and went to bed satisfied. It was a good day!

Here are yesterday’s eats…..


Banana, Black Coffee





Grande Nonfat Latte with 1 pump of Sugar Free Vanilla





Quinoa Sweet Potato Burger with Smashed Avocado on Toasted Trader Joe’s bread

    I totally understand. I am basically trying to eat from the Simply Filling food list, but like you, I can eat more than I should really easily, so I’ve decided to also count points. Eating from that list of foods is making me try harder to eat the good stuff. 🙂

    Hope you doing well Pam!

  2. This is all good! Love the new outfits and food looks yummy. I’m afraid to attempt simply filling because the part of me that knows when to stop eating is broken, I think I would over eat big time…sure am tired of counting points though. — Pam
