Yesterday was a good first day of my Healthy Start. I ate healthy all day and stayed within my calorie goal. In addition I had lots of fresh veggies yesterday including green beans, broccoli, corn and carrots. I also squeezed in a hearty work out! I worked out for about an hour doing the gazelle, squats, stairclimber, situps and crunches. I then cleaned house for about 45 minutes. Combine all of that and I burned between 400-500 calories! Today is shaping up to be another good day. I'm not really able to get up much earlier than I already do without being completely grumpy, so my workouts will be in the evening. Tonight is dinner with Andy's parents, so it will be an even later workout than normal (probably won't start until 9:30!) Thanks to Renee and Maria for their encouragement! I'm definitely relying on the Lord to help me have self-control and not turn to food when I'm stressed.
