Please excuse me while I toot my own horn for a moment: Toot , toot, I lost 2 pounds!! LOL!! Ok, ok enough with the obnoxious behavior. Truthfully, it felt GREAT to step on the scale today and see that I've lost two pounds. I would have been happy to have seen .5 or 1lb so the 2 pounds lost really lifted my spirits. Seeing the scale saying I was two pounds lighter than I was last week let's me know it's worth every minute of exercise, every food choice that I make, every blog post I write, EVERYTHING that I do in order to take care of myself.
Now, with being said it appears I was the snack queen today. They were healthy snacks BUT I did spend a lot of my calorie budget which could have been spread a little more equally throughout the day. No matter...that's the beauty of tracking your food/calories. I'm aware of the problem and I know I can make changes tomorrow. *Sigh*, if only all things in life were that simple.
On another note, I signed up last week to try the free trial of SparkPeople LIVE. I attended the orientation today and really liked it. CoachKrystie was fantastic and it was great to meet other SparkFriends. I was about to log on for an actual meeting this evening at 10pm but it appeared they wanted me to pay first. I guess a free trial week equals 5 days. Oh well, I probably will sign up because I see a lot of value with meeting others weekly to share goals, successes and motivation.
