I know it's not all about the scale, but, boy, did it feel good to step on this morning and see that I am down 5 pounds! It was just such a nice surprise. I am setting short-term weight goals for myself, because long-term is too overwhelming. My first goal is to be below 250; this morning I weighed in at 261, so I feel like I am well on my way. I have 465 exercise minutes this month; my original goal had been 300. Buying the mini-trampoline was a great investment!

I definitely need to be drinking more water. My poor skin is so dry in this cold weather. Water will be my main focus this week, plus I plan on keeping up with exercise and watching my tendency to snack too much. I have a busy week coming up, and I tend to eat and drink too much when I get tired, so I'll have to be careful of that.

    Hydrating upon waking up is Important. It's also recommended to limit the loss of muscle tissue gained by exercising is to consume 5-10 grams of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCCA's).

For myself, walking 60 to 90 minutes a day has worked nicely for my health. I mix the BCCA's in 25 ounces of water and sip it during my cardio session.
