I've finally learned ...

Slow and steady wins the race. It seems like every time I fail at a diet it's because I keep trying to change everything at once. I have finally figured it out. Small changes = big results. This month I have focused on finding a comfortable calorie range. I have been logging my meals and exercised for the next day on the night before. This way, I already have an idea of what I can and want to eat as soon as I wake up in the morning and then adjust as needed during the day. It has really been helping me keep myself accountable.
On the exercise front, I began the c25k program this week. This means, I'll be doing running/walking intervals 3 times a week! On my other days, I'll do strength training or pilates.
I do need to buy a new scale but, for now, I'm quite content just going about my daily business and knowing I'm doing well for myself. I have a doctor appointment at the end of the month so, I guess I'll find out my weight then. It feels wonderful to finally have a solid grasp on changing to a healthy lifestyle!
