Bonjour de Bordeaux!
I just returned from a nice long stroll in the city with The Cash.
I made two pitstops. 1. The bank 2. a local pâtisserie where I picked up a slice of cheesecake for my husband. (Today is his birthday)
Week 9, as I reflect on it, I must be better at writing down what food I place in my mouth and paying more attention to the little things that add up!
My #1 offender is soda -- I love those tiny bubbles! I will go back to drinking Perrier (sparkling water) and watch my intake of my favorite offender!
I eat well though, lots of veggies, protein, fresh bread, fruits that are in season, and hardly any sweets... I usually cook at home for the husband and I, yet I have to admit I love snack foods (like everybody!) especially chips and soda! Yummm! The GREAT thing about France, is smaller portions! Therefore, when I indulge in my favorites, well, the bag is A LOT smaller and JUST ENOUGH to satisfy my craving! Thank you France, thank you!
Ok, without further ado...
WEIGHT: 156 (70 kilos)
WEIGHT LAST WEEK: 159

What I have learned this past week:
1. I have learned that just because the scale registers a lower number, doesn't mean THIN!
Au contraire, I would like to be 156 pounds of muscle tone and fitness rather than fat, because (as you already know) muscle weighs more than fat.
2. Cachou enjoys doing yoga with me! (see photo below!)
My routine is basic and I do it because it makes me feel good!
I usually do it when I roll out of bed or before going to bed. You know when you wake up in the morning and you take the time to get a good stretch in, ahhhhhhh, and it just feels sooo good!! THAT IS MY YOGA ROUTINE!
3 New Things to Implement for Week 10
1. Drink more water, particually Perrier, to curb my soda intake!
2. I plan to tone up using core exercises, my yoga routine, walking and playing tennis - sports I love participating in!
3. Keep a food diary, upload it with new photos and recipes!
Bonjour et Bienvenue!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
