Ugh...I am so tired from today! I woke up early to exercise so I could--I had a very busy day! I took my husband to work and then went to work myself. I think my dedication to exercise is increasing because a month ago there was no way I would have woken up an hour early to make sure I could exercise. My calorie intake was incredibly lower than it was the day before, but that was because I was weak and ate some of the lo mein my mom brought home (after I already ate dinner).
On a high note, I have completely given up mayo for avocado, and I think next month I will try to use hummus instead (I hear it's healthier). I've got my salt intake down, which is good because it was really out of control. I bought some 5lb dumb bells because the 3lb I have are too light now.
Whenever I get tired, I just think: in six months I will be the weight I was in high school, and in a year I will be lighter than I was in high school. That is what I am working toward and this time I'm not giving up without a fight. I've been thinking about taking daily pictures at my computer to track a visual representation of my weight loss. This way when I'm feeling down or unmotivated, I can look at the pictures in a high-speed slide show. Maybe it will show me the progress and keep me going. Anyways, I'm tired, so goodnight.
