Health: Day 28

So, marking this 28th day of my health journey, I'm happy to report that I'm at the lowest weight I've been in the past 3-4 years.  It took me nearly 30 days to lose just over five pounds, but at least I've started the journey.

I was surprised to see the scale show .2 lbs less today than it did yesterday.  (Not much of a change, but I count every loss.  Every ounce lost is another step closer to a pound lost.)  The reason I was surprised was because of some choices I made yesterday, like Sun Chips, lightly sweet & salty popcorn, a nibble of a cookie with LOTS of icing, and more.  So, it made me happy to know that I could maintain my weight and eat things like that from time to time.  I managed the portions well too.

Today, new temptations were introduced...Skittles.  I couldn't recall the last time I had eaten Skittles.  Apparently my husband is on a Skittles kick, and so he emptied an entire family-size bag of them into a bowl and placed them on our kitchen island.  I ate about 10 today.  I like the sweetness, but I don't particularly care for the texture/chewiness.  Hopefully they won't pose too much temptation for me.  However, I'm keenly aware of the possibility and will swiftly tell my husband if it's a hard stop for me to have candy so readily accessible.

I've not worked out at all these past 28 days.  That'll change tomorrow. :)

Be open to what comes.
