Week 1: Not too shabby!

As I've mentioned, I'm going really slow this time around. This week, I woke up before 7:00 every morning. Monday - Thursday I either walked or did yoga for 30+ minutes. Friday, I didn't do a specific exercise. However, all day Friday, Saturday afternoon, and most of Sunday, I was going non-stop with cleaning the house and yard work as we're getting ready to sell our house. As far as eating, I did pretty good, but not great. I definitely did WAY better than I usually eat, but pizza, calzones, and Hot Tamales don't exactly fit in the "healthy" category. I'm not going to beat myself up for those items like I used to do. I told myself that I'm going slow and I'm ok with it. One step at a time. I will say, though, I had a small victory last night. I really wanted some Reese's Pieces and was getting up to get a handful, but instead found myself in the bathroom?? So, I weighed myself and am SO glad I did. I looked at the scale and said to myself, "You know what? Those Reese's Pieces are NOT worth messing up my numbers." Then, when I woke up this morning, they were even better!

I need to see my body fat and water percentages go the opposite way than they are going, but otherwise, pretty good, huh?? :D Thanks again for all of your support and encouragement! You guys are the best!
