The past few weeks have been crazy! I have lost 14 lbs to date. I am super excited to see the changes in myself. I am learning a healthier way of cooking, without sacrificing the flavor. I refuse to eat cardboard.I am still on top of my workouts. I haven't been to the track this week, because of so much going on. But, I still work out in my living room. I have Googled a ton of different exercises and weight loss tactics. Here's what I've learned: The thing that works best for you, is not necessarily what works for everyone else. I try to mix it up, because I get bored with one thing repeatedly. The more research I do, the more I learn about what I used to put in my body. WOW! So many restaurants pack their food full of calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, and carbs. Who knew? This is why I try to look at the nutrition information posted online prior to eating out. Then, I know what's "safe."This weekend I'll be joining my family in our annual reunion. I am so excited to see them, but not too excited about the menu. Burgers, hotdogs, potato salad. You get the picture. Sigh. This is where "portion control" comes into play...because there's no avoiding this one.
