It's been awhile since I blogged on here, I'm hoping to get back into that habit. I have numerous blogs but have yet to beat the support I find here on SparkPeople :)
Today was a fun day, went shopping at the outlets with my cousin-in-law. Then came home and just relaxed. Finished up a good book that I've been working on for awhile now and checked out a few websites that I keep up with. Played with my neopet, haha. Gotta love it.
Then I did my strength training exercises, I gotta say they aren't hard, but I can tell my muscles are pretty tight. So I'm glad to be putting that back into my routine as well. I know it makes a bit difference with the headaches too, all these things to lose weight I think are healthy things I should be doing anyway. I guess where that whole mindset comes in that it's not a "diet" but a way of changing my lifestyle for the better. And I'm even starting to think in that way, I keep telling J that I want eating healthy to be my main focus and then the whole calorie counting thing will fall in line anyway. I must say my appetite is already responding, today I don't feel nearly as hungry and not at all deprived. I even started on a small portion of a dessert that I had made, and ended up giving the rest to the dog because I was full so quickly. And don't worry... no chocolate was involved :) Actually, I've pretty much kicked the caffiene as well. Definitely a major contributer to the migraines! So I don't need it, it's not good for me anyways.
Yes, it feels good to be pleasantly tired tonight, see that's another thing. More activity = less insomnia and more energy. I'm loving this.
