Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children’s diets.
Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child’s diet today.
More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures. Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office. For more information about kids and cereals, please visit Cereal Health and Wellness. Right now if you visit here you will find a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals.

NOT! I've been working my butt off. Yesterday had the personal trainer cancel on me. So instead of just waiting around for her to reschedule I called and got a same day appt with Phil. Right now, Phil is EVIL (so are air squats and lunges!). What was suppose to be an assessment turned into what Phil calls "prescribed torture", so INTENTIONAL torture was the REAL words he was looking for. Thanks for Phil, I DID get a GREAT workout and am cursing him every time I walk today! He said I was doing the assessment too easily, which IS a compliment.
Tonight I go back for some solo "Interval" cardio. I would like to do it outside but it is POURING, and I even contemplated that the rain would not be so bad until I thought of how WET my feet would be GROSS!!!
Tomorrow it's a rest day. A light walk or maybe some laps in the pool. More like sitting in the hot tub is probably what I will want to do!
Wednesday back to see Phil and tell him how much I LOVE him, YEAH RIGHT!!!
Onto the nutrition. I have to admit I did not track this weekend. I did not think it would be hard but it was. For one I just did not think about tracking. Two I don't eat nearly as much on the weekends as I do on the week days. But I was aware of what I was eating even if it was "not as much" and noticed it was "not as healthy" for me either. Guess this coming weekend I have some work to do.
I want to THANK everyone for their support. I have never done this before. I think having a trainer will help TREMENDOUSLY no matter how much I say I don't like him. Next question is can we afford it?
Nope did not weigh in this morning. Took all my energy to get dressed and out of the house! OUCH!

Monday, January 4, 2010
My goal = 25 pounds by June 19th 2010 and an additional 25 by December 31, 2010
So I might as well share with the world! I will weigh myself and yes you will see it tomorrow.
So NO diet. I refuse! But I do believe in
1. trying to eat better,
2. snack healthier and
3. start exercising. (Yes I said the E Word)
4. Cut down on Starbucks, yes sorry to report maximum 3 times a week.
5. And cut down on the soda, switching to diet at home to start with.
And...progress today I made the appointment with the personal trainer for Sunday.
Exercise goal, workout three times a week, Sunday - Wednesday and the other days use the Wii. Yes I know lame but that is how it has to be with my busy schedule. Maybe someone will give me one of the new EA Wii's to test out?
And today I ate a donut! Yes they say if you want it eat it in moderation. So I did. Because normally I buy the entire dozen and eat two or three. So I ate one.
Tomorrow...my actualy weight! Scary!
166 days to go, and 25 pounds...
