Went a little bit over board with my calories yesterday. I had a couple too many whole wheat tortillas... its ok though... I just need to make sure not to make that a habit today!

The weather today is cloudy and cool.. looks like rain actually.. so I think I might finally be able to get the bicycle out!! LOL.. how long have I been wanting to ride now?

Last night I was sitting on the couch with hubby... I was so uncomfortable because I was wearing jeans, so I went and changed into some comfy sweats. Maybe some of you do this too... but I was thinking... I remember the days when I could be just as comfortable in a pair of jeans then I could in a pair of sweats. OF course I was a size 6/8 back then... So, there is another thing to look forward to WHEN I lose this weight... finally being able to lounge comfortably in my favorite pair of jeans!!

So, my focus for today is to stay in my calorie limits.... drink my water (which I have been doing fantastic with).. and get that bike ride in!!!

Some of you were worried about me quitting my job. I am happy with this decision and I think that it will do nothing but make me a happier person... some good advice:

Reality check: you can never, ever, use weight loss to solve problems that are not related to your weight. At your goal weight or not, you still have to live with yourself and deal with your problems. You will still have the same husband, the same job, the same kids, and the same life. Losing weight is not a cure for life. ~Phillip C. McGraw, The Ultimate Weight Solution: The 7 Keys to Weight Loss Freedom, 2003

Find your focus... have a great day!!

I can't remember if I commented here before but I just thought I'd tell you I think you're adorable and I really like reading your blog. Funny - I've been trying for weeks to get a bike ride in as well! Good luck!

Don't worry about what other people say about leaving your job. It sounds like a wonderful job and I remember when you told us what your duties were I asked if I could have that job - but working nights and then having to take care of two active kids - no way! I could not imagine. I am a size 8/10 (or well before I got pregnant - I am only 9 weeks and the tummy is already sticking out) I always go home and put on a pair of yoga pants I am not comfortable in lounging around in jeans!

Not to worry about going over on your calories - at least you made the mistake with the whole wheat - and not the ice cream! Be proud of yourself. I know we can do this and kick some butt. And great quote from Dr Phil - its so true. With your job change - you know whats best for you and take care of yourself. :)
