Planning, dedication, hard work pays off

I was happy to see my dedication and hard work drop the numbers on the scale today.

Last week I talked about how planning my meals and my exercise was keeping me on track.

Well, the regular exercise and healthy eating has proven to be worthy. I got on the scale this morning and I lost 2.2 pounds from a week ago.

I haven’t tracked my food or counted Points or calories. I just paid attention to what I was eating and I planned.

I did a lot of cooking two weekends ago and most of my meals were fresh (hardly anything processed) with very little meat. I ate lots of fruits and vegetables. I drank water or tea.

I have been limiting my caffeine intake as well as my alcohol intake and trying to keep the imbibing to the weekends.

I plan to keep this up. We’ll see what happens next week.
