It's been good. Better than good. Amazing.
Back in January I made the goal to lose weight. While I didn't jump right on the bandwagon, I have now, and I'm dedicated to it.
I've been really focusing on my eating first during this last week. Tyler and I got a workout in on Sunday morning (where I had a burn of 911, not bad!) but for the most part, that's it. I usually like to nail down my eating, and then incorporate workouts shortly thereafter.
And I've realized if you focus, you can "treat" yourself a bit and not go overboard. On Saturday night, Tyler and I went out with a couple of his friends to the Green Mill (pizza place). Tyler ordered pizza, I had one slice of that and a house salad. I was able to treat myself a little, but not go crazy. And it made me appreciate that pizza a whoooooole lot more!
When I stepped on the scale this morning, I was pleasantly surprised.
I was down 4.4 pounds. 4.4!
I started out my mission by ordering a new one of these:

I've gone through THREE of these books in the past and I love them. I know there's all kinds of apps out there (and I've tried a couple), but there's something about actually writing down what you're eating and the exercise you're doing.
Here's my entry from yesterday:
Pretty simple stuff to fill out.
The other thing I'd recommend picking up is a food scale. I NEVER measure my food, I weigh it. Always. With a lot of foods, you'll actually realize you get MORE when you weigh than when you measure. Kind of cool.
Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox. I'm just excited, and motivated.
Tonight, I'll be hitting up the gym, going home to make dinner (chicky and sweet potatoes!) and then snuggling in for The Bachelor (by the way, I think Clare needs to leave).
