Wow. I haven't updated in here in quite some time so here it goes...

I'll start with my blog since that's the last thing I posted about. My blog is working out great. I get on there everyday at the end of the day and do I "Today I had..." blog containing what I ate that day. I've also written a few "progress report" type blogs as well as some informative blogs. I'm actually having a lot of fun with it.

I've also joined MyFitnessPal as of 5 or so days ago and I love it! I've got the app right on my phone and it's really helping me to watch what I eat and count my calories. It's great!

Those are the two things I've been busy with the most (aside from my kiddos of course) LOL I'm having trouble getting motivated to work out. I hate exercising and am really struggling to just start doing it, but I know I need to and I know it would help, so I have to kick myself in the butt somehow and get that going. I did however significantly increase my water intake to about 8-10 16oz glasses per day. According to the "drink half your weight" thing I should drink at least 105 oz of water per day, so that's what I'm aiming for.

As of August 5th I was down to 211 lbs from my starting weight of 221 lbs. That following week was BAD and on August 12th I had gained 5 lbs back and was back up to 216 lbs. :oops: But last week (with the help of MyFitnessPal and my blog :) ) I did great and today I weighed 210 lbs so I lost all the weight I'd put back on PLUS one more lb so I was super happy with that!

Well, that's my update for now! Thanks to anyone who is reading or checking in with me! Be sure to check out my blog if you haven't yet, and good luck to everyone trying to get healthier!
