I have had a pretty good week and at my weigh-in last Thursday I was down 1 lb. I don't think that I will reach my goal to be out of the 160's by the end of February but I am trying hard to keep positive and work everyday on better choices.
Exercise has been good and I got 4 days in this week and I am getting ready to do an hour workout after I finish this post. I am still looking for something new to do to change things up a bit. I am looking forward to warmer weather when I can get back to walking outside.
I have worked really hard at increasing my water intake this week. I got out an old water bottle and have been trying to fill it twice a day and get all that in. I usually add just a small amount of crystal light to give it just a hint of flavor.
Once again journaling is my downfall. I usually do good until the weekend comes and then it goes out the window. I am back to writing today though but it leaves my points over the weekend unaccounted for. I have a tendency to snack more when I am not journaling.
My snacking and mindless eating as I like to call it is getting better. Yesterday I only had one snack in the day and an orange before bed so I was very proud of myself.
I know if I never lose another pound I have come along way but I am determined that I will make it to my goal weight. The last six months have been frustrating as I have been in this cycle but I am still ever so thankful that I am 85 lbs lighter than I was 2 years ago. I am ever so thankful that I can shop for normal clothes. I am ever so thankful I can run and play with my kids. I am ever so thankful I am a healthier me!!
