I'm posting this blog to hold myself accountable not only to myself and my goals but also to my many SparkPeople friends/family/teammates who have been there for me with support, motivation, and encouragement.
I am finding that making my lunches/snacks the night before is helping me stay on track. It feels good to be able to get up for work in the morning and know that all I have to do is reach in the fridge and grab what has been put together and toss in the lunchbox.
I've been watching my portion sizes when having snacks or eating out and I feel this is helping also.
Need to get find ways to get more exercise in other than what I do at work. Finding this hard to do as when I get home from work most days I just want to chill and relax.
Til next month:
