February – In review.

My first full month back on track… and I did stay *mostly* on track. Yes I had a couple days where I took a bit of a detour, but not many! I think I was over on my calories 4 times for the month, but only 1 of those was by more than 200 calories. So I think, food wise, I did pretty well. I could do better, but I could have done a whole lot worse. Water… I chug like a frat boy!  I have learned to love water, and almost everything else is way too sweet. I even have to drink “light” juice (which is watered down versions of regular juice) because it’s too sweet.  Exercise? Yeah, I did that! See:

——evening: elliptical for 50 mins

(month total: 1275/1000)

Now, for the results:

I lost 5.3 pounds, 3/4″ off my neck, 1.5″ off my bust, 3″ off my waist, 1.5″ off my hips, and 1″ off of my thigh. So, while I didn’t lose as many pounds as I wanted to lose, I did lose something, and I think it shows in the inches. 🙂

Bring it on March, I’m ready!

    Great job keeping track in February. Congrats on the loss 🙂

    I should take measurements. I never have this entire journey and they would probably be interesting to see.

    Good luck with MARCH~
