Happiness is...

New gym/workout clothes!

Today treated myself to 2 new complete sets of workout clothes for the gym! I figure I deserve something nice since I have been doing so well. :) JCPenny's had some pretty sweet deals, and everything is so comfortable and bright colored! Talk about motivating! (As if it was an issue.)

The weight still isn't really coming off, but my clothes feel better and I am going longer and faster on the treadmill each day. I have been drinking TONS of water and replaced any occaisional sodas with unsweetened ice (green) tea. (You would think cutting out the sugars would have had an effect by now.) Still eating as healthy as possible and watching my portions and carbs.

Hopefully the weightloss will start soon!

An Update

Just a short update!

I am already down to about 182-183 lbs! Woot Woot! :)
(I think "aunt flo" had bit to do with that.) My pants sure are fitting a little better!

It's been lots of veggies, fruits, proteins, and water lately. I've been keeping as low carb as possible! Eggs OR a small bowl of cheerios with 2 bananas cut up in it for breakfast. Lunch is typically a salad and a protein based side- steak or tuna. Cheese stick and orange for snack. Dinner varies but is protein based with veggies.

I haven't been nearly as hungry or cranky lately. The headaches have mostly gone away as well. Except today- I am feeling a little stuffy, so I hope I am not getting whatever illness is going around the office.

It has been about a week since I had a pop/soda! I simply haven't had any cravings for it lately. Occasionally, I need some chocolate- but I stick to dark chocolate and only a little bit.

My ankle is still a little sore and stiff. I've been trying to do as much as I can. It is hard to get very far sometimes! I've been soaking it in Epsom salt and wrapping it when I can. Soaking it helps a TON in relieving the stiffness- one of my office buddies recommended it!

I think I am starting to get cabin fever! I am looking forward to spring and the outdoors and I can't wait for craft show season to start. Only 120 more days to the first show- and I have so much I want to do between now and then!

How is everyone else doing with their resolutions so far?
