Whoo hoo! so after last post, I was pretty down about my progress. I took a week off of exercising to rest my muscles and guess what? It bolted me out of that slump pronto!! I dropped the last 3 pounds to reach my 150 goal!!
Yay! So, what have I been doing this week you ask? Staying active! Even though I'm not working out, I'm up and moving around, less time on the couch and more time playing with the dogs and goats in the yard! For food? I'm averaging under 1200 calories a day and staying VERY full with veggies and fruit! High fiber breakfasts get my day started off right and my fave snack of the week is caramel rice cakes! Great for my current sweet tooth! So, if you hit a slump, change up your routine and don't get down on yourself. If you need a chocolate bar, have it! (but just one!)
An Intro to my Diet Plan
This page is as much to keep myself accountable as it is to help other brides on their journey (or those who just want some down to earth, friendly dieting tips) I am not an expert (although, sometimes I feel like one), these are just lessons learned from my experiences.

So, I've reached a slump :( I've lost 22 pounds, but have been stuck here for a couple of weeks.... Ugh, I haven't changed my habits; I'm eating healthy, walking/exercising regularly (well, I took the weekend off to help my sore muscles) and nada! I'm now 4 pounds behind my goal line and I need to catch up or get back on track! I'm proud that I've made it this far, but I've got a ways to go! I'd be happy with 10 more, but I'd like to lose 20-30 more. Sigh, keep on workin...
