Day 4 is halfway done! Doing good. Feeling good. Feeling tired, but good. I haven't been able to get the exercise thing down. I thought I'd work for it this week, but can't seem to get up before 6 am. By the evening, I am beat. No energy left. I did a jog this past Saturday and that felt good, but the rest of the week looks pretty cold. I can't take the kids out in the jogging stroller with these temps.

I weighed this morning. I couldn't help it! I am down one more pound. I don't want to focus so much on the scale or weight, but in my head, seeing the scale go down means that all of my hard work is working. I know how I am though and that can be dangerous because if my weight stalls out for a few days, it is hard for me to stay motivated. I need to stay away from the scale. I do have it put away, but "out of site, out of mind" isn't working!

I think I am doing better this round with cycle 2 than I did last time. Last time I had a hard time getting in my starches. I kind of ended up doing more C1 days than C2 days. It worked out ok, especially for losing the weight to fit into the bridesmaid dress, but it didn't follow the 17DD plan. I feel like this go around I am doing better on that front...although this time I am letting myself have a glass of wine in the evening on occasion and that isn't really ok in Cycle 2 either...oh well. I am not concerned. I want to find something I can maintain and something that will work. I think this is working for me so I am good with it!

    I personally cannot do cycle, etc type diets, but if you like it go for it! It's great you got out for a jog and you are seeing a change!! :) The whole "to weigh or not to weigh" question is always tricky...There are positives and negatives either way, but as with most things I think balance is key...check in every now and then and try not to stress. I am also having trouble making time for exercise...It's a struggle! emoticon
