Ides of January...

Yes, I did just reference Shakespeare. What of it? Anyway, I have been meaning to update the blog for about a week now, but every time I sit down with collected thoughts I have about 5 minutes before I need to jump up and be somewhere else. Such is life.

Since today was the halfway point for this month, I decided to hop on the scale before updating. As of this morning I weigh.... *drum roll please*... 215.6! WHOO-HOO!!! For those of you keeping track, that is -6.4 pounds for the month and -34.2 overall! My goal was to lose 10 pounds this month, so I am right on track. [Insert happy dance]

I've done pretty well with my eating. I had a couple of high-calorie days, but not too many or too bad. I logged my food everyday, even when I had my "bad" days. I think that was part of my problem before. If I went over my calorie goal, I just wouldn't record it that day. I didn't want to admit I messed up. But let's be honest, whether I logged it or not, I still ate it. The scale kept track of it for me. Then I got in the habit of not doing it at all and stopped paying attention. Hopefully the lesson has been learned.

Hmm, I probably have more to say, but I need to start getting ready for church. It will just have to wait for now! Hope you have a wonderful week!

P.S. I really need to update my picture on here. I'll have to see if I can't find one!
