{First day down}

My first day was good until about 5:30 in the evening and a massive migraine hit me and I ate a bunch of junk and then curled up in a ball with MJ (my baby) and fell asleep with her. I woke up around 2:30 am this morning (it's 3:08am now) because MJ woke up and decided to weigh myself with MJ and then again without her, since I was already up.

I weighed 293 with MJ and 280 without her - I've gained some weight since my first initial weigh in and it's bummed me out but I knew it was going to happen since we did have mostly junk to eat during New Years Eve and I did eat junk today - but it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be, (only 3.5 lbs up from my original weight).

I haven't started walking yet but plan to start tomorrow since I now have a new stroller (my other one broke) and can take both Ruth & MJ with me. I just hope it's not super cold tomorrow like it has been the last few days.

I did pick up some good fruit and some fresh vegi's at the store and I am working on cutting out the amount of sugar in my diet and only going to drink water (I have a large re-usable water bottle that I will be carrying around with me and will be refilling a minimum of 8 times) I am also going to be making homemade meals instead of going out to restaurants (be it fast or other wise). I also plan on working out with both my wii fit and some workout video's via Netflix's "instant" feed over the net.

I am so glad I have others that I can be accountable to!! I am super excited that Angie started this group!! I am looking forward to all of our progress in the next 6 months. Below is a workout goal sheet that I am going to be using to help me keep track of my weight loss during each week/month. You can use it too if you want.

Anywho, MJ is getting cranky now and I better be getting back to bed. Tomorrow, (well later today), is going to be a better one for sure. I am hoping that I get back on track! Nighty-nite!
