Yay me!

I did my exercise Friday morning before we left for the weekend and I lost 1.5 lbs. I was sooooo excited. Ive never lost that much! I have been exercising 3 times per week for about a month now. Sometimes I squeeze in more time/days but realistically its only 3 times. The only thing I did differently last week was cut out some soda. I drink 2 cans of Mt Dew a day but last week I alternated days and skipped a can. Monday I drank 2 cans, Tuesday I drank 1 can and iced tea the rest of the day, Wednesday 2 cans, etc. I know water is better but tea is a happy medium for me.

The bad part? We left soon after I weighed myself. We were on the road from 10am Friday until 3pm Sunday. Thats alot of eating out, plus we went to a wedding, which equals cake. I tried to make wise choices but with eating out 3 times per day I am a little nervous that my 1.5 loss is shot.

The wedding(and weekend away)was nice. I am exhausted and wish I would have taken today off. lol

Ah, weekends :) they totally eat up any weight I lost during the week. My net to date over the last 4 months? 2 lbs. Sad.

Nice job on the weight loss.

Have you tried crystal light in your water? I hate drinking water but using that makes it easier for me to force it down.

Have I told you lately how much I love the purple on your blog???

Congrats on the weight loss...I'm doing so much better in the eating/drinking department (I too am cutting out soda...or pop as I say...as much as I can) but suck at finding time to exercise!
