Wow! After an upsetting weight gain over the weekend, stepping on the scale this morning was a pleasant surprise. It reminds me that I am on the right track! I was really proud of myself last night, I turned down a very caloric sugar cookie my sister offered me, and I am very happy I did! Turns out I was more full than it seemed like I was right when I finished dinner. So I had some decaf coffee instead.

Yesterday was my first strength training in a while, and I'm going to slowly incorporate it into my workouts. I started off with just squats and overhead press, but I'm sore from both!

As for my goals...
1) DRINK MORE WATER. At least 6 glasses a day. YES
2) No eating after 8 PM NO, (didn't get home from work until 8:15).
3) Make fruits and vegetables a habit, not a chore. YES, snacked on an apple, not chips
4) Run outside and swim for exercise... also mix it up at the gym! YES, tried a new machine instead of the elliptical
5) Ask myself if I'm really hungry every time I reach for a snack. YES, stopped the snacking at least once!
6) If I am really hungry, ask myself if there is a healthier/lower-calorie alternative. N/A
7) Begin to incorporate weight training into my workouts. YES, squats and overhead press
8) Fit into my favorite "skinny" jeans! getting there...!

Turning down a cookie - wow that is an accomplishment! It's great that you're doing strength training too. Not only good for when you're older but it will make you more toned. I find that helpful as a motivational tool :) You know, not only being more healthy but looking great too?! Makes the cookie not so very appealing.
