Brand New Day

Weight: 308.4
Total Weight loss: 41.6 pounds

I had a great weekend overall, just in general as well as food-wise. Yesterday I weighed in at 306.8, so I was disappointed with this morning's weigh-in. However, it is still pretty close to where I left off on Friday, so I guess I should be happy that I made it through the weekend without totally ruining my last week's efforts. And besides, who knows how good it might be tomorrow, right? No fretting over daily weighs on this blog. That's not the point of a daily weigh, anyhow.

I am happy to say that I got 35 minutes of walking in this morning, in the rain, no less. Go me! I grabbed my umbrella and just did it. My pace has slowed considerably in the past week for some reason, but I am hoping to speed it up just a week bit... I am not focused so much on that as much as just getting out to do something, but it is nice to have determinate goals. No more walking in the dark, though this morning was darker than it might have been, with gloom and drizzle. Still, the rest of the week is supposed to be temperate, and I will enjoy it while I can! I do plan to continue my outings throughout the winter, so I am preparing myself for cold and snow. At least I have some experience with that, having started back in March.

Hey, I am wearing an XL shirt from Target today! It is from the group of clothes I bought on clearance a few months ago; this cute shirt cost just $9.00. I cheated a little, I admit... I did have to sort of the yank the arm holes open more because of my extra large armsies, otherwise the shirt fits perfectly! I love it, such a cute, modern pattern, and the detail at the neckline is lovely... see?

All things considered, I feel strong and healthy today, and look forward to a really great week on plan. This week's goals include:

• Blogging every day (I think this has really, really helped)
• Walking or running every day
• Tracking food every day
• Eating a few servings of fruits and vegetables every day
• Limiting the amount of processed foods I eat
• Doing the best I can to deal with evening snacking
• Stay within daily caloric limits whenever possible!

Totally doable, what do you think?
