Weigh in Wednesday!

I got up this morning and took my pill and drank a full glass of water before it dawned on me that I hadn't weighed in!  UGH... It's all about the ritual isn't it? 

You have no idea how happy I was to see a .4 loss for the week. Slow and steady; even after a somewhat "off plan" weekend. 

I feel like I can do this; I am doing this; and it's far from easy, but it's working - even if at a snail's pace. 

Yesterday the teen and I went to the gym. We got our steps in and an upper body strength workout... Biceps, triceps, lats, chest and shoulders. The little one was a little annoyed that I made her take her earbuds out and concentrate on what we were doing, but I'm trying to impress that she should focus on one thing at a time; form matters and you can't just "go through the motions".  I'm a little sore this morning - it has been a while since I've done any strength training, but I am ready to keep it going - putting together a weekly plan - nothing crazy - just 2-3 days/week.

And I have to add that I felt FINE working out even though I was fasting and I hadn't really thought about it until just now... I felt strong, on task and made it through 3 sets of each exercise.

Food this week is going OK. I ate on plan Monday, fasted yesterday and had my usual breakfast of eggs.. I have NOTHING scheduled so I will be able to prep foods, and be more thoughtful about what I put in my mouth into the weekend. I'm making a concerted effort to stay away from SWEET - even fruit will be limited to citrus only - lemons, limes and if I'm dying an orange or grapefruit. I have to get rid of the cravings and the only way its going to happen is by NOT giving in, and focusing on other things. Any suggestions are welcome.

The gym. The machines scare me. I really need to buck up and book a session to learn how to use at least the most basic ones!
