I've been reading the "Crazy Sexy Diet" all week and it has been a motivating and fun read. After reading this book, I want to eat more vegetables. My grocery list for this afternoon contains more vegetables than usual and my dinner plan for the week includes some new additions such as lentil soup, multigrain rolls, asparagus, tomatoes and cucumbers. My husband and I were DJing my sisters birthday party last night and after eating five too many cupcakes and two many cups of soda, I am definitely ready to eat healthy for the week ahead. I love the way eating healthy makes my body feel! Not to mention, hopefully by eating healthy and exercising according to plan, I will lose what I gained and then some for the next weigh-in! Yeah, you read that correctly. I gained this week. The birthday party wasn't the only culprit. I went out on my 2nd date of 12 with my husband on Friday night as a part of my 25 by 25 list.

I didn't make healthy choices there, either. Let's just say that the evening started with breadsticks and ended with cheesecake; somewhere in the middle of that was a carb loaded pasta dish from Olive Garden. All of those good bad foods that I ate last week definitely makes me crave those veggies I was referring to. I'm excited to go grocery shopping today!
