I just had an eye opening experience...

So, I have been doing the yo yo thing when it comes to dieting... I'll do the healthy food thing for a while and then not. Well, a friend of mine suggested that I do this website that is a food journal thing. Well, it suggests that to be at the weight I want to get to, I need to loose a pound a week. That's entirely healthy. So, I started journaling my food today, and even with making a bowl of homemade veggie soup (with ramen noodles in it) I still have to find a way to get up to 1870 calories per day. This is going to be a challenge for me as I don't eat breakfast on a regular basis. I know that my body is in starvation mode, and I have to coach it out of there. I will do this!!! I will be doing a weigh in on Wednesdays at 10 am. This way I can kind of keep track of my weight better and see where I need to improve. In addition to a food journal, this site also does an exercise journal, I am going to be taking advantage of that too. In fact, I am finishing up my bestie's laundry for her, getting dressed in shorts and a t shirt, and then heading to the park with her for some walking time. I need to get in 1/2-1 hour a day 5 days a week. Hope that within a month I can up it to jogging/running. Any tips you may have that might be helpful are welcome!

Now for the rest of the family: maddie was feelign ill yesterday, but is on top of her game today. kenzie went to school. who knows what she will be doing today. ryan is doing good. and that's about it for now... see you all later!
