Week One Down

It's been a pretty good weekend.  I thought it was going to be daunting what with having a free day for food and a free day for exercise.  It hasn't been as bad as I expected.  It actually has been pretty easy to continue to eat healthy.  I did have my one splurge of the week and that was to go to Astro Burgers.  I was going to get a burger but decided instead to get a chicken kabob plate.  It was soooo yummy and the fries were great.  But honestly, I don't really find myself wanting it all the time.  I've been craving healthy foods like fruits and vegetables, so that's what I'm going to give my body.  I have started to notice some immediate changes in my body already in just a weeks time.  Since I exercised everyday I've noticed my body is not as stiff and sore as it usually is when I just sit like a lump on the couch.  I've slept a lot better and I don't feel so sluggish.  That is also a part of changing my diet as well.  I can feel my digestive system flowing a lot smoother!  I don't feel like I have indegestion all the time.  It's been a wonderful feeling. 

Tomorrow is weigh-in day.  I'm actually looking forward to it, but I'm not going to be upset if the numbers haven't changed.  I know that each person is different in the way they lose weight.  If the number hasn't changed, that's okay.  I know that I'm changing things for the better and I'm on my way to healthier me!  The number on the scale will come, but for once I'm not going to be obsessed with it.  It can be disheartening when it only shows you've lost a pound, so I'm not going to pay too much attention to it.  I'm going to keep going down the road that I'm on continue to change my life!  Afterall, this is a LIFESTYLE change.  I have to change the way my mind works as much as the food and exercises. 

One week down!  Bring it on week two! ^_^
