Girlie Push-ups and Seafood Salads

Haven't posted in a few days, but I've been doing pretty good. At least twice more on the Wii Fit, 32 and 40 minutes. I'm going to do it today, too. There, it's in writing.

I did try to do girlie push-ups, and my Wii trainer didn't comment on it. But my husband called to chat after about six reps, so I didn't get any points because I quit. Does anyone else have a husband that never asks if you're busy before they just start talking? Anyway, next time!

The eating is going well too. I cooked some pretty low carb dinners this week with fish and lots of organic vegetables. I'm not the only one here that could stand to lose a few pounds, so no complaints. Last night we went to California Pizza Kitchen and I ordered the half Miso Seafood salad. So delicious! I hope it wasn't too bad, it did have a sprinkling of won ton strips in it, along with lots of shrimp and crab. The waiter did not offer bread, and I didn't ask.

One thing I haven't given up yet is my nightly glass of wine. If I have it, I can skip dessert. It 's my treat, and I make sure it's a yummy one. Red or white, love them all.

Go Team Lynn!


  1. I love my wine too! Unfortunately I'll have to sacrifice it for a week or two (thanks to the boots) but that one glass a night is a really nice way to unwind :)

  2. I'm so clueless...this Wii fit thing sounds fun but I don't really know what it is. I'll have to Google it.

    Whatever you're doing,it sound like it's good for your motivation. Keep it up! :)

  3. I love the wine too! I'm a white wine girl which is even worse, because its got more sugar in it and no heart benefits! :-(

    The Wii fit sounds like fun! A co-worker has one, I told her the other day I'm going to invite myself over to try it out- it sounds like something I could get hooked on!

    Go Team Lynn! :-)

  4. Wow, that salad sounds amazing! I looked it up online and listen to these ingredients: "Shredded Napa cabbage with fresh avocado, julienne cucumbers, daikon, edamame, carrots, red cabbage, green onions, cilantro, crispy rice noodles and crisp wontons tossed in a Miso dressing and topped with blue crab and shrimp." I also looked it up on the Daily Plate and it looks like it's around 13 WW points or 596 calories, 21 grams of fat and 22 grams of fiber. Also, an amazing 43 grams of protein! That's like TWO DAYS worth of protein. Talk about a healthy salad! They have a California Pizza Kitchen about 30 minutes from here. I'm gonna HAVE to check it out, now! :D
