You know, I must say that since I started this weight loss blog, it certainly distracts me from thinking about snacking. Working on this blog is all I've been doing in my spare time. I've found that sharing health tips that I've researched, looking through motivational pictures and finding weight loss success stories daily have all been so inspiring for me. My goal is to keep myself motivated and if I can help anyone else on their journey as well... then that's awesome.
I have to say, I was really sore last night after working out. I had to really push myself to wash the dishes afterwards. I did it because I figured it was just one more way to keep my body moving... maybe not much, but enough to burn a few calories at least.

Notes: I'm really surprised at my progress in such a short amount of time. It makes me wonder why I never stuck to eating healthy in the past. They say that 'you are what you eat.' I totally believe that because when I was eating crappy, I always felt crappy. Now that I'm eating good, healthy foods, I feel good and I feel much healthier than I have in a very long time. There are times when I'm really hungry and I want more, but I try to fight the hunger pangs with all that I have. So far I haven't given in, but I've got such a long way to go on my journey. All I can do is hang in there and take it one day at a time.
There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.
