New Attitude

I have seen changes in my body and the way I feel since I began exercising daily.  Each day I am stronger and believe more in my ability to reach my goals.  My weakness remains though, snacking on junk food.  I workout so hard that I feel that I am negating what I do through excessive snacking, I am not saying I have to be restricted from candy bars or cookies.  I am stating that eating cookies after lunch and a candy bar after dinner may be a little much. J   Though I am feeling the best I have felt in a long time.  I have room to improve. 

I am about 15 to 20 pounds from my goal weight.  I call it the examination period.  Where you have to start looking at your life as a whole trying to find those little habits that may be keeping you from losing those tough pounds.  Here are a couple of things I have found I can improve this month. 

Sleep – I am getting 5 ½ to 6 hours of sleep – my goal 7 to 8 hours of sleep

Snacks – I am eating 2 to 3 separate snacks (junk food) a day – my goal substitute with apples, watermelon, fruit smoothies

I believe if I can add these things to my lifestyle along with the workout plan I currently do I will see great results by in the next month.  My goal is to lose 11 pounds by July 30.  I am two day in since I begin taking out the junk food and I have to admit I been tempted but not deviated from my goal. 

I am learning to takes discipline to reach your weight goals.  I am doing things I have never done before and I am so thankful that I made the choice to become a better me.
