Celebrate the Small!

Two great things happened today . . . well, honestly, my life is full of great things!  BUT, concerning my health journey, two GREAT things happened today!
  1. I lost 2 pounds!  Yeah!  Even after the stupid things I did over the last week and not being to the gym in two weeks, I managed to pull it together and lose 2 pounds!
  2. I ditched another pair of fat pants!  When I put on my brown dress slacks this morning, they were so baggy that even with my heals I would be walking on them.  With just a little tug, they came off without being unbuttoned or unzipped.  I took that as a sign to put them in the donation box!
The eating healthy is going good, and I had a GREAT night at the gym with my partner in crime.  I was amazed at how some of the circuit training machines were harder to do after just a couple of weeks, but I was back and sweating!

Finally, I found a new snack that is FABULOUS!  There are several different options, but I picked the granola with peanut butter.  Let me tell ya these are TASTY, and they satisfy my peanut butter needs.  One package has two crackers (like what's pictured on the box), and they are only 190 calories, 9 grams of fat, 1 gram of fiber, and 4 grams of protein.  They also kept me satisfied until lunch.

2 pounds! Fantastic!!! It feels good when your clothes start getting to big but even better when you go down a size. Out with the old and now the fun part buying new! LOL

Good work Amy! Let's keep the momentum going. We can do this!!!
