Gotta keep to it...

Well I didn't get to work on my Spark page... I've been busy with working around the house. I have been better with what I am eating...
I've been looking at the calories in everything and was completely shocked by some of the things I ate that I had no idea had that many calories. Tracking what I eat definitely helps with that understanding on what you are eating and how much. I had a talk with my husband with how it's hard and now he is trying to eat health too and actually asked me to buy carrots and celery at the store! But he still eats fast food every now and then and I may have a bite or a few fries of his just get rid of those cravings, but then have something healthy to eat. I feel so much better after I eat the healthy choice rather than the fast food. It also makes me feel good that I made that decision and decided to say no to fast food.
I've switched to having fruit/veggies for a snack in the afternoon. I used to have a 90 or 100 calorie snack, while that's not bad, I think fruit/veggies is better.
I'm very glad I'm getting into the groove at the gym finally. I'm actually looking forward to it... never thought i'd say that! I'm glad that the gym I go to has classes. There is a total body conditioning class that I absolutely love and its twice a week. I try to go 5 days a week and do the elliptical/treadmil the rest of the week. I think for the next session I may try to go to the Step II/Pilate's class on Saturday... but its at 9:15... and I don't like to have to get up... I like to sleep in... so we will see about that.
The best news this week is:
It got really warm this week and I broke out the capris and they fit better than last year! I was so excited and I think it gave me a little boost!
Well off to cook dinner... something different this time :) I'll try to blog again tomorrow and work on my spark page sometime!
Also, thank you everyone that has commented :). I have to become more social on this site. I usually keep to myself, but I need to get out there and be interactive... so I guess that can be another goal of mine.
