Life Lately..

I hope you all are enjoying your day off!! I have had a pretty good day so far. I headed to the gym early this morning, so I can spend the rest of my day at home. The weather in Memphis is terrible today, so I will be washing clothes, grading papers, making a grocery list, finishing up season four of Melrose Place, and relaxing! :) I have been training with my trainer for almost a month now, but I am loving every minute of it! I already feel like a new person. I am down 7 pounds in three weeks, so I am anxious to see if I lose anymore this week before we hit a month! I have been changing my eating habits a lot, too. I eat more, but my meals are smaller. I am never hungry! It's really nice. I also am not drinking any alcohol anymore...I know...I will usually pick one weekend out of the month to enjoy myself, but I have just not felt like it....I would rather get up in the morning and go for a run, go to the gym, etc. Speaking of exercise and eating healthy, I finally bought myself a Polar FT4. I am OBSESSED with it.. I love,love,love it! It was hard for me to keep up with how many calories I was burning while working out with my trainer because we used weights,etc. I get motivated to increase my time every workout! :)
Sam's birthday is Wednesday. We went out of town this past weekend, so my Mom and Dad had everyone over last night to grill steaks and celebrate! It was a fun night! We still are not sure if we are going to dinner Wednesday night or wait and celebrate this weekend with friends. We are going to a Tigers game on Saturday with our best friends, so we might just turn it in to an all day event. :)

Hope you all have a great week!!
Happy President's Day!!!

Wow! That is great!! Keep it up! It's hard to give up alchohol but if you're seeing results that's very motivational. :-)

Yay for you! I have lost 6 since January 1st. But I have slacked off a little but am back on track! So glad your enjoying it!

giving up alcohol really does make a huge difference!

they say never drink your calories!

I don't drink a lot, but if I gave up alcohol I'm sure it would help me. I got the FitBit which tracks my movement, steps, etc all day, every day. It's pretty motivating, but I know that the cals burned aren't nearly as accurate as the Polar watch. Between you and one of my other friends who just got one and keep posting pics of it on IG, I'm kind of wanting one now so I can see how I'm truly doing at the gym... oh decisions!
