I'm starting to see progress~

Kinda surprising because the last couple of days I have been kinda bad. Damn girl scout cookies!!!

Stress tends to make me want to indulge in comfort foods, and the last couple of days have been just that. When my husband left, he told me that I would feel overwhelmed at first, then get into a routine and by the time he came home I would feel like I didn't need him. Well, he got the first part right, but thats about it. I can't imagine doing this all the time on my own. I need him!! Even if he did nothing, just having him to come home to and give me a hug when I've had a crappy day can make all the difference.

Anyway, I have been able to get to the gym- twice last week, but only once this week. Unfortunately if I miss work that is the only time I can make it up so I will have to be disciplined enough to use my wii at home more this week.

5 lbs since the start of the year is a pretty decent start off though. I would imagine dumping all the soda and caffeine for water is a major part of that. I've been getting in my 8 glasses most every day, but tracking the food is sometimes tough, because I don't have all the info for everything and sometimes I just don't have the time to sit and enter new foods if they aren't already there. I'm getting better though!

Progress is progress, so I'll just keep chugging along as best I can!

    Having been through numerous deployments I can say it never gets easier and you never get used to it but it does become easier to manage so just keep looking ahead

    Way to go on your 5 lbs. and just stay positive and motivated!
