The scale has finally kept moving (228.4 this morning, woohoo!) and I am feeling good.
However, I have a confession to make.
I haven't been tracking my points. As you can see by my what I eat post, I eat almost the same thing every day. So I figure I would give myself a break from tracking points and obsessing over that, and lo and behold, it's been a good thing for me so far. I am still trying to make good choices and still eating pretty much the same stuff.
I'm exercising on average for an hour three times a week; usually two Zumbas and maybe a walk or something, but sometimes it's more, sometimes it's less. I am extremely proud of myself for getting through the "arms" song on Monday at Zumba without having to take a break once. Despite gritting my teeth and looking AWFUL and cursing the instructor under my breath, I did it.
I've gotten into a great routine on Saturday mornings of going to Zumba, coming home to get cleaned up, and then going to the farmer's market and visiting with my mom and brother who work there and having lunch. Then I pick up some fresh fruit and veggies and meats and come home for a nap.
In fact, I'm very much looking forward to that nap on Saturday.
