Diet Update…Favorites So Far!

Two whole weeks have flown by, but so far, I have stayed on my calorie counting diet!

I am eating 1200 calories a day.  Cardio five days a week, strength training two.
So far, so good.

These are some of the products which have helped.  I count my calories on  

Protein is important for me because I will be less hungry during the day.  That is why greek yogurt and the amazing new frozen treats at the top really help me to power through.
I eat them only on days I need a treat!

Here are the links:

Have a fun Saturday everyone!!


  1. Mmmm, those Enlightened fudge bars look good! Like the fact that they're low-sugar.

    Best wishes to you, Pam, on your new way of eating and your new workout schedule! We're pulling for you!


  2. Wow Pam! I admire your consistency and determination. I've been getting more exercise (since it's summer vacation;), yoga and swimming, but I've not been counting any calories. We are off to 10 days of 'all-inclusive' vacation in the Dominican Republic today. Lord help me-I hope my friend 'Will Power' shows up because it can be a real food/drink fest. Hahahaha!
    Keep up the great work lady! You are inspiring!

  3. Good job! I am trying to stick with a diet after having my daughter. It is hard, but I feel good that I am doing it. I will have to try the Amy's items; Ive heard good things. Feel free to add me on myfitnesspal if you want: jenlhaa

  4. Hi Pam
    I've been following your blog for months in my favourites and a couple of weeks ago I decided to join blog land for women 45+. Please would you follow my blog, if you feel you want to. I'm on a diet and new style journey as well :o)

  5. Hi Pam,
    I've also been on a 1200 calorie a day diet and I've stuck to it for an entire week. So far so good, but I definitely need special low cal treats to replace my daily candy bar habit. One of my favorites is Dole Dippers (slices of frozen banana dipped in dark chocolate with almonds). I love Greek yogurt too; definitely helps keep the hunger under control.

    Best wishes to you in meeting your goals!

  6. I have some fudgecicles in my fridge too. When I'm in control I it out and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. It's just a little creamier when it's not frozen solid. That's hard because I usually want to wolf it down!

    I try not to eat unless I'm sitting down. When you're keeping portions at "normal" levels you can't get away with eating half a serving standing in front of the fridge.
