It's Been Too Long!

Vacation is finally over, and I am back home in Indiana.  I'm sorry I didn't post much at all on vacation, but I just didn't really think about it.  I had a fabulous time, and I'll post more about it these next few days or so.  I have pictures that I need to load on to my computer and all of that, and I'll include some of them on the blog.

The good news is that I only gained about 2 pounds during this, basically month long trip.  I was pleased because I definitely wasn't as able to eat as well as I have been lately.  It was a great trip, but I am starting to get ready to get in to my master's program!

Anyway, I will post again soon about part 1 of my trip.  Hopefully you haven't all disappeared!

Quick Update

I am writing this from my iPhone because there is no Internet where we stay in Red River, so please excuse any spelling or grammar mistakes!

Red River is beautiful right now. It just rained, so it's nice and cool. I ran this morning and felt great. I could definitely tell that I was at a higher altitude because it was harder to recover when I walked. But it wasn't impossible! I decided to go back to week one of the C25K plan, and that worked out wonderfully!

I probably won't post again until Sunday or so when I'm back in civilazation. :)

Getting Closer

I weighed myself today, and I have lost... drum roll please... 15 pounds in the past two months!!  15 pounds!  I am so excited I could eat a cake.  Just kidding... kind of. :)

Exercising has definitely helped and made a huge difference, but I also think that writing down everything I eat and how many calories it has in it has made the biggest difference!  Justin and I have been cooking a lot from the New and Complete Weight Watcher's Cookbook.  So far they've been really good and easy to make.  I think they're pretty filling too, but Justin doesn't.  He eats multiple servings.

15 pounds down, 55 to go.
