Calories: 925 so far of 1850-ish for the day (depends on length of gym workout)
Workout: 20 minutes of strength training done, 30-45 minutes of cardio at the gym scheduled for this evening
24 hour challenge: crazy stressful Monday
24 hour success: I have two! 1) Last night I was still feeling hungry after dinner, so I had a second helping of veggies. 2) Did some extra moves in my stregnth training this morning to make sure I did some toning on my abs.
Today's body gratitude: Mobility. Before I started getting physically active, the arthritis in my knees used to be extremely painful to the point that squatting was impossible without feeling like I was going to tear something in my joints. The combination of strengthening my muscles, getting more active, and losing weight has allowed for me to move a lot more easily and do activities that were difficult before. Right before writing this, I squatted down to talk to a co-worker who was sitting and did so without any difficulty.
