One month...

Well, my weight is not coming off as quickly as I'd like, but I can tell a difference in my body and energy level. Even Mike mentioned yesterday that he was feeling like he had more energy. We both think it's because we aren't eating out much anymore. This last month I can only think of twice we ate out and that was on purpose and planned...not because I was too lazy to fix something.

I've logged my food everyday at I used to use FitDay and it's good, but when I had a personal trainer earlier this year I started at LiveStrong and have just stuck with it.

As I said in my last post I started to exercise. I've gone three days a week the last two weeks. I think this week I'll push it up to five days and only take two days of rest. I would still only do weights three days a week, but I'd add two more days of cardio. I also want to continue to build up my cardio time. Right now it's still at 10 minutes with about 50 minutes of weight training. I'd like to at least do 30 minutes of cardio...this week I'm going up to 15 minutes. I am still on the elliptical machine that I like cause it burns so many calories!  :)

Fall down...

...get back up again!  I can't tell you how many times I've started over at this weight loss!  I'm at it again and I've lost 10 pounds...wish it was more, but I will take it for now. I just started exercising today. I did 10 minutes on the elliptical machine and four weight lifting machines. That was what I could do today. I actually broke the 10 minutes up into 5 minute sections because the elliptical machine just really is hard for me, but according to all the studies I've seen does the most good for me so I will continue!  :)
