Great news today folks... I stepped on the scale to see this beauty...
I know it's only 1 lb since the first of the month, but it is 4 lbs down from last Sunday. Super stoked to see that number after bouncing around the last couple days. I was 280 just yesterday morning. I am further down in to the 270s now and feeling confident moving forward.
As my weight has increased over the last several years my period cycles have gotten way more out of whack. I can remember back in 2010 I only had 2 for the entire year. I started working out in January of 2011 for the first time ever and not long after that my period came back and started coming every month again. I cannot remember the last time I had one but I think it was probably around my birthday in late November. I feel like I could have one start back up any day now so this also probably has a lot to do with the fluctuation in the last week. I used to keep up with periods on the My Days app but am not as diligent about it anymore since my husband had a vasectomy after our last child.
I am heading to the store soon to pick up some essentials for the week but am also going to pick up some items to make salads with. I have always despised salads until I found out that I actually like the taste of spinach when it is not cooked. I loathe lettuce so that's why salads were a no go for me. I saw Katie from Runs for Cookies posting about her February challenge to try new salads for lunch each day and that sounded yummy. I probably wont have them everyday, but any at all is more than I've had in months. It will help keep my calorie count down while also getting in some good veggies and be something quick and easy to fix.
