When I last wrote on here last week, I said that I was only talking baby steps. I hadn't really been doing any of the things I set out to do. Despite that fact, I still managed to lose 1.6lbs. Cutting out alcohol has made losing the first 5 pounds quite easy. Hopefully thats a trend that will continue. I have been making an effort to track everything since I weighed in yesterday and I'm going to keep trying. In the past I would give up if I wasn't doing everything exactly as I set out to do. Now, I'm just trying to go day-by-day and improve my habits over the long run. I've been walking to and from work which gives me about 45 minutes exercise daily and I make sure I only bring healthy snacks with me. This has prevented the mindless snacking I used to do at home during the day by myself. I haven't had much of an appetite lately anyways but the body could definitely use the exercise.
Hopefully I'll be able to stay on track this week and begin and maintain healthy, new habits.
