This will be a quick post tonight. I wanted to check in and let you know that I am still plugging away. My eating so far this week has been okay. It hasn't been quite as good as the previous week, but still have been eating within my calorie budget and tracking everything. Tonight however, I exceeded my budget by just under 300 calories as we stopped to eat on the way home from work. I definitely could have made some better choices, but overall not disappointed. This was the first time we dined out since he returned home five days ago. That is probably some sort of record for us. My plan is to not eat out the rest of the week and I know we can follow through with it. I am motivated to finish this week strong.
Something else that I would like to do this week is purposely move more. By that, I mean I want to get up from my desk or wherever and take short walks in an effort to get more activity. Also, I want to use the treadmill at least once. I'm probably thirty pounds over the maximum weight limit, but I'll risk it. Even if I can only do five minutes the first time, I want that first time to happen before this Sunday. This is the week I stop talking about moving more and I actually do it. Putting it down in writing here will help me stick to it.
Hope your having a great week and it finishes well. Thanks for all the support!
