I'm still here and going strong...

I'm still going at it. Still counting calories and I'm still having a hard time with it.

Mentally, I know that I'm getting enough calories. However, my body feels like it's starved. The thing is, I've been over eating for so long that I've grown accustomed to the bad habit. Basically, I'm re-training myself on how to eat in proper proportions and avoiding bad foods.

This entire weekend I was really good at logging my calories and staying within budget. I also went out yesterday and bought snacks for the week. This will ensure that I eat healthy foods and stay within budget all week long.

Since I've been doing this for a week now, I want to put a few observations into words. This past week I have noticed a 3lb. loss. However, I know that this is probably all water weight. I have also noticed that I feel really good about having the structure of counting calories back in my life. For some odd reason, the more days I pass the more motivated I become. I don't care if I do not see a scale victory. I believe that in the long run, this change will make my life better.

Hopefully tomorrow I will have more to write. For now I just wanted to document that I'm still on track. Oh yeah, I haven't worked out the last two days. Saturday was my day off and then today I was supposed to work out but because of Liam keeping me up all last night. I was exhausted once his bedtime rolled around today.

Tomorrow, I will be working out in the garage.
