I can't wait until tomorrow to tell you...

that I lost 6.4 pounds this week! I was completely shocked when I stepped on the scale. I have been very "good" about writing down all my food which of course really makes me watch and think about what I put in my body but when I total up my calories for the week, it is an average of 1950 calories per day which sounds high to me. My range is supposed to be 1700 to 2100 so I'm right in that range. It just goes to show you that one cannot lose weight by starving themselves, we need the food to loose! Hooray!

I am going to try to add/change some things that I eat all the time. Miss Phyllis mentioned that it is a good idea to switch it up and not get too comfortable with the foods we always eat, that eventually, your body will go searching for the nutrients it's missing and you could stop losing weight. My mom always used to talk about something similar so I'm sure it must be right. If my nutritionist/RN and my mom (who was also an RN) both say it, you know it's true!

Turns out the karate school IS open tomorrow so we're heading back to the Y tonight so CityMomma/CountryMomma can get her Zumba on! Guess what I'll be writing about tomorrow for my living healthy post?

Is it strange that I will have been at the Y on three separate occasions today? I swear, I'm addicted to that place!

Heading off to the kitchen; yesterday it was warming up and I thought, "Shit. Need to not eat for a few days so I can wear my summer clothes soon."

P.S.--I love the cow pic.
