Weigh In

Well, it's been 5 weeks since I decided to start losing weight - you can catch up on that here.
I figured it's time for an update! In my previous post, I mentioned that I was eating a lot of grilled chicken, fruit and vegetables. That lasted for awhile but then I got really, really tired, of eating the same stuff over and over again. Eventually I decided to just eat what I want - which generally, isn't that bad for me anyway. I rarely cook fried food or use a lot of butter or cream. Really, my only food downfall was eating sweets late at night, after the kids went to bed, so I haven't been doing that.

Time for the good stuff.

So, I'm down 12 pounds and 11.5"! Wow! I'm really not one to pat myself on the back, but I have to say I am pretty proud of this accomplishment! I have to wear a belt with all of my shorts now, even after trying to shrink them in the wash, which is pretty cool.

I've found a great workout routine that works SO well for me. I love my recumbent bike, and I love to read. So, while I bike, I read on my Kindle. Before I know it, I've gone 5 miles. Then I do a quick floor workout - planks, bicycle crunches and a couple of other things that I don't know the names of. It goes by quickly!
