I cannot believe how time flies.  Its been awhile since I last posted.  Things have been crazy, hectic, busy, but I'm sure I am not the only one experiencing these things.  Sometimes in life you feel like you are on a roller coaster and you just cannot stop.  Its all good though.

I have been exercising and watching what I eat.  I indulged a few times.  For example, my cousin turned one and I knew there would be lots of good food at the party.  Not to mention cake and ice cream ( I have a profound weakness for ice cream).  At any rate, I ate what I wanted but did not gorge or make myself feel uncomfortable.  I just nibbled here and there on what I wanted and made sure that I saved room for that cake and ice cream.  Let me tell you it was worth it.  :-)

On Monday and Tuesday I went to the gym.  Tuesday I had my Spin class with my buddy.  He really worked me into a sweaty mess!  It was great!!!!  I didn't go to the gym yesterday because I decided just to take off.  Also, I wasn't feeling too good (hope I am not getting that nasty stomach virus that is going around).  I plan to go to the gym after work today while I wait for my colleagues to get finished working.  We are supposed to be going to a Happy Hour.  I haven't been out in so long, I am probably not going to know how to act.

Well, I have to go so.....until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.

Sunshine Makes It Better

I am so happy that we have had a couple of nice days. Sunshine makes evrything better! I went to the gym on Monday and yesterday I had my Spin class. Today I am hurting a little, but it is ok. I know that this pain is worth it. I took my daughter swimming on Sunday and was able to get some water exercise in. I can't wait to get outside to ride my bike. Soon!! I have been using MyFitnessPal to track what I am eating and also my exercise. Since last week I have lost a pound so I am happy about that. I am also being mor concious of my portion sizes. I am drinking more water and am packing my lunch so I know what I am eating and not guessing while standing in the food line at the cafe during my lunch hour. Anyway, here is some of what I have been eating
