Finally! There you are.

I don't even know the last time I was in the 170s. I bet it was around 10 years ago but I also stopped weighing myself around that time too.

Even though the scale has been resisting me the last couple weeks, I feel really good. I feel like I got the fitness part down. I'm able to get myself up and just do the workout even when I'm not really motivated and not give up when it's hard. I'm still floundering with the nutrition part. Not because I'm eating a bunch of crap. I'm not. I just get so confused about how eat best. I seem to struggle with protein but I don't want to eat meat with every meal. But i cant seem to hit my protein minimum most of the time even with greek yogurt and legumes. Also, in my quest to eat more REAL food and less food-like-substances, I don't want to eat any reduced fat or fat free stuff. I'm just not sure how to balance everything yet. And occasionally Chris does the cooking or I just have to throw something together quick and that makes counting calories such a headache. It's a little nerve-wracking. I go back to work next week. I would like to have a definite routine down but I don't know if I'll have it all figured out by then.

But at least I'm making progress! So excited to enter the 170s but I don't plan to stay too long!
