Wow the week has gone by fast - or maybe that is just December!!
This week I haven't really done great. I have stopped eating a snack before bed (I used to every night), and I have exercised a few days. I am eating less at meals and when snacking I am choosing better foods (IE banana instead of pop tart).
Let me tell you - exercising is AMAZING!! I don't know why I wasn't doing it all along!! I get up at 6 am and wake my middle school-er, then come out and exercise. I have so much more energy for the day, my mood is better, and I am sore!!! I know that isn't a good thing generally speaking, but when it comes to exercise it means I was actually working muscles!!
This week I have lost 5 pounds!! I am down to 200 even. I hope to keep the weight loss going. I would like to be at 190 by the end of December and 180 by the end of January. Oh what a treat that would be!
This week I have to increase fluid intake, exercise more days than not, and I will give up soda as my unhealthy thing to cut out this week. I am not great about writing down what I eat, but I do keep a general list in my mind.
I hope that all of you who are participating are having success and feeling great too!!!
