10 down.

I weighed in today 10 less lbs than I was just 4 weeks ago. Totally feeling great about that!

Some people go on extreme diets or follow (in my opinion) freaky rules and things they can’t eat. The problem I have with that is it’s not maintainable for me. I’ve made really good healthy choices and changes in my life, but I’m not about to become a slave to some rules that in 3 years may be proven to be total crap.

Anyhow- my point is limited calories + exercise + plenty of water is working. If you’re struggling with getting healthy as I have I can’t suggest a simple plan enough. Easier to stick to and maintain.

In other happy news I got a good haircut. Hard to tell in this photo but it is. I’ve had a few bad hair experiences in my life, but the lady who de-highlighted my hair back in 06 definitely knows her stuff.


(ps- yes that’s a cubs shirt Steph, and indeed the only sports item of apparel I own)
