Note to Self

Yesterday, I went to the gym after mass to do some cardio and strength training. I picked up some sort of US/People/Hello! type magazine, and was looking through it while I worked on the elliptical. Finally, I got to a story on Jenny McCarthy. Say what you will about her, but you do have to give her major props for losing weight on WW. Anyway, she said something that resonated with me and is now a part of my "note to self" for the week: Weight loss is 90% eating and 10% exercise. She said, "I can be a toned fat person or a toned thin person. It depends on what I eat." Amen! I haven't been paying much attention to food lately (work stress... ugh!). That's what I'm going to focus on for the week.

The trainers I worked with all said the same thing: It's all about nutrition.

I could do better...

Thanks for the reminder.

I totally believe this. I had always heard the ratio of 80/20, but 90/10 sounds good, too. Plus, there are a lot of people who have lost a lot of weight by just diet alone. I like Jenny McCarthy, and think she is a great role model (as long as you brush her early MTV days under the rug, LOL).

Now I just need to figure out how to make it work for me.
