It snowed yesterday. It gave me an automatic workout, since my car was buried underneath all ten inches and I needed to shovel it out to go to work. I'm thankful for days like this when I don't have to decide whether to exercise. I just do it. It's easier, somehow. I think that may be a helpful mindset. Just plan on it, don't decide from day to day whether to follow through.

I had to navigate a happy hour today. It's difficult because I wanted to join my co-workers, and I don't fee right about going and not ordering anything. There really weren't healthy appetizer choices. I stuck with diet coke, a few peanuts, and some boneless wings with sesame asian sauce, and that was my evening meal. I have a few calories left for a light snack before bed, and that makes me really happy. I was able to participate and not feel deprived, and I still have something to look forward to later.

I stepped on the scale this morning and it showed a slight weight gain. It's probably a reflection of day one when I was still eating my regular food and not yet making changes. Yesterday when I started really watching what I ate I cut my calorie count in half from the previous day in order to stay within the recommended guidelines, so I am sure the slight gain was due to previous bad habits and not a reflection of the last two days. I'm hoping this journey continues to go well. I know it will be worth it.

    SDLMOM, I live in Minnesota, the Twin Cities. We usually get our weather from your direction, but that storm must have missed you. If I could figure out a way to send some your way I would be happy to! Luckily the temperatures have not been too bad yet. emoticon
