Tomorrow marks one week down on being on this diet. The week has flown by really fast and without as much struggles as I imagined. I wish I could figure out a way to get motivated to walk outside, the sidewalks here are still pretty icy, but I am still staying dedicated to doing my strength training. Today I also joined Spark People's boot camp, which runs through the end of this month. Today's video was done easily, but I could feel my muscles working. One of my other goals is to get out and walk daily, so once I get over the beginning struggle, I should have no problem tracking 30 minutes, five times a week. I am excited to see how well I do!

I do my strength training in the livingroom. Sometimes my Mom will participate (she enjoys the wall pushups), but every time my niece helps! She will be 17 months on the 9th. She sits on my stomach when I do crunches and on my back when I do the back extensions. She also participates in the wall pushups and lunges. I am going to try to get a photo of her, and share it with you all. I hope that one day I will be able to show her a photo, and tell her how she helped get her Auntie healthy again. She really motivates me and inspires me to be healthier so I can stick around and see her grow up.

So, overall today I feel like I did a good job. I did the bootcamp video on top of my regular strength training. I watched my portions, ate three meals and started eating healthier (whole grain). I went over my goal for carbs, but tomorrow is a new day. I won't let it derail me.

I feel really good! Thanks to everyone for their help and encouragement. Together we can help each other achieve our goals!

Smile and stay positive!
