      Crazy ice storms where I live. I've been without power for two days which has derailed my plans. So, just for today, I will try again.

      Log everything
      Eat only one serving
      Exercise, even if only for ten minutes

      My boyfriend helped finish my tracking board, and I filled out the first quarter of it today.
      Each quarter = 20 pounds lost (and a new tattoo from my boyfriend!)
      fcrF2iF.jpg

      But I also wanted to remind myself that it's not just about the number on the scale. It's about being healthy, active, and confident in myself.
      5yW8v1f.jpg


      I've also started trying to be more aware of my macros, and not just my calories. Trying to lower my carbs, fat, sodium and sugar to healthy levels, and increase my protein.

      Wish me luck!
