Steppin' with Cathe Frederick

I recently bought a step to do some in home work outs with and I have really enjoyed it. I have a friend who is way into it and she inspired me. I am starting out with Cathe Frederick's basic step workout which is about 30 minutes and it is going great! I have been doing it about 2-3 times a week for the past few weeks and I am still sweating like crazy with every workout. She is really good and her dvd comes with the step when you buy it. I look forward to mastering this dvd and then trying out some others she has. Here is a cool website where you can see a clip of the video before buying it. Cathe DVDs

Life Time and More

I finally made lifetime with weight watchers. It feels great to finally be here but it is a lot of work to stay here. I am reworking my schedule so I will have a more set time to exercise and then more time for my other hobbies. I also started working for WW yesterday as a receptionist in training. So far it is overwhelming but good to be on the other side of the desk. I hope all will go well and that I can continue to maintain and enjoy working as a WW team member. I also got a much needed haircut and finally found a salon and stylist I think I like enough to use again. I love my short hair!

I discovered this great thing from a weight watchers meeting. It is called BP2. It is basically dried peanut butter that doesn't have any of the peanut oils. It is a powder so you can put it in smoothies, hot cocoa, oatmeal, stir fry and many other things. I have tried a few things but my recent favorite is oatmeal.

1/2 cup instant oatmeal
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon PB2
1 cup lowfat milk
1 teaspoon canola oil

I mix all the dry ingredients then add the milk and oil and cook it on high in the microwave about 2-3 minutes or until done. It is really good and tastes like a treat instead of like yucky oatmeal.
