Today was a good day.

I ate well and things came together well for me. My car is working again. Turns out the fix was very simple, though frightening, to find out it was just some bolts that came loose and so we had to spend a few cents on new bolts then tighten them on there good and seal with a thread lock. I was able to get up extra early and catch a ride with my dad this morning to drop off Bethany early and get my college textbooks with 10 minutes to spare before I had to clock in at work this morning, too.

My classes on the other hand are a bit daunting.. there seems to be a lot of work in my near future. The college algebra course I am taking is making my head spin. Ugh... once I think I have one equation figured out it wants to throw a whole different one that takes some sort of other order and its frustrating.

I am still dropping lbs on the daily.. I hit 283 this morning.. looks like I'll reach my second goal real soon. Before the end of the month if I'm lucky. I am getting really excited thinking about being able to fit in to some of my old clothes again. I am glad I kept everything I wanted in a tote haha. It's in storage at my parents house but my dad is remodeling this year and so I need to get back down to those sizes so I can throw out my current stuff and bring the older smaller sizes over to my closet before he needs the space. :D

Down to the original starting weight.

This morning I saw myself hit 284 which was the highest weight I had seen the very first time I decided to give things a go... I hope to be sailing right on passed this number real soon. :)

Today and yesterday were really great calorie intake days for me and I had an awesome workout last night. Did not get around to working out tonight, too much on my mind. College classes began for me today so I'm trying to figure out what all I have to do in each of my courses. I still haven't got my textbooks yet and am wondering how I am even going to since my car broke last night and that is besides the fact that the bookstore is only open during hours that I work. Ugh...

Week 2!

Well I keep telling myself I need to find time to post and play catchup, however I am reminded of all the things I haven't shared here yet that I wanted to and get overwhelmed thinking its just too much and so I need to wait until I have enough time to write everything. However, I think that is backfiring because I just haven't posted anything. So here's what I'm thinking... oh well to what you missed. I need to just start logging daily again even if it's short and simple that way at least I can remember the good things I wanted to share or any lows I may have had. The whole point of the blog is to keep me accountable and to share what is or is not working for me so I think it will be better that way.

Anyways, here we are 2 weeks in and this is what the scale reads...

So hooray! I am 8 lbs down in the last two weeks. Not too shabby! I am still very excited to keep trudging along. Still no sodas but my calorie intake has been fluctuating up a bit lately. I am still exercising as much as possible though so that helps. I'm not going crazy overboad with the eating though either. Just eating more when I feel more hungry.

I started taking a Once daily women's vitamin this morning and also a chocolate whey protein shake to help with muscle rebuilding and soreness. I recall taking both before and them being very helpful and I'm doing my best to recreate that much success.

Oh and one important thing I did want to mention was that my son is being homeschooled and since he is required to do at least 30 minutes of exercise each weekday I am finding it easier to make myself get a workout in after dinner during the week because it is during that time he does it along side me and gets his PE done for the day. It's one less thing for my husband to worry about during school time and it's one more thing for me to do to bond with my son. :D
