Wow, I cannot believe it has been 2 months since I started on this journey. I have lost a total of 17 lbs. I try to walk 1 mile every day, outside if the weather permits or inside with a DVD. I still struggle some days with making healthy choices. My downfall around this time of year are Cadbury Creme Eggs.
I am trying to tell myself that in order to burn the 150 calories in each egg, I have to walk for an extra mile. So far, I have done good and have only had one or two since Valentine's Day (when the Easter candy came out).
Here are some healthy snacks that I regularly eat:
~ apples with peanut butter
~ rice cake with peanut butter
~ any kind of fruit (peaches, blueberries, strawberries)
~ raw veggies like carrots, broccoli, green peppers
Some other changes I have made:
~ drink 8 + glasses of water a day
~ track my calories on myfitnesspal.com
~ track my exercise
~ no more sweet tea or soft drinks
I am to month three of my lifestyle change and cannot wait to see how far I get. I will check back in around April 7. Eat healthy!
