GET FIT and Selfie Saturday

I missed last week's check-in, but for about 2 weeks now I've been calorie counting on and I just want to say that I've lost 4 lbs since my last weigh-in.  I'm starting to understand why I wasn't losing weight before, I had no idea how many calories were in the food that I was eating.  

Week 6 for Me

Height and Weight:  5'6 and 131 lbs (a total of -6 lbs since started)

Fitness Challenges for the Week:  Work out at least 5 days, alternating strength toning and cardio.

Food Challenges for the Week:  Eat more fruits and veggies, water, salads, and no soda.  I gave it up for Lent because I loved it too much, that is just so wrong, right?

How Did it Go:  Alright.  I haven't had a soda for about 2 weeks but had one today.  I've been doing really good on logging my cals in too, for the most part.

Failures and Slip-Ups:   Haven't been working out a lot, maybe 2x this week, need to work out at least 4x next week.  And I think I've been eating way too many calories for dinner, but I just started eating dinner a little earlier and that seems to help, that way I'm not completely starving.

Weekly Challenge Wisdom:  Keep on going.

Advice:  Count your calories, do it, made a difference for me.

Self Portrait:  Model Eyes
