Wow what a difference a day makes!

So I worked out yesterday for about an hour doing The Biggest Loser Power Walking DVD. I woke up feeling muscles I don't think I have ever known existed. Although I do feel great knowing I worked out and had a great day yesterday! I woke up and pushed myself to cook myself breakfast while getting my daughter ready for school. I managed to make some scrambled egg whites and had a small apple to go with it. I even packed my lunch for the day! I think the highlight if my day yesterday was posting the link to this blog on my Facebook page and actually had a few people read it, that just made me feel like I have support even from people I don't talk to on a regular basis. I will be taking advantage of this beautiful day, it's not every day we have an almost 60 degree day in January!! So off I go to work out!

My 1st Day!

Ok So today is my 1st day and it's a great day to start! It is sunny outside...cold but sunny. As I am blogging I am trying so hard to eat my 1st bowl of oatmeal. Let me tell you, if I can over come this I think I can do a lot more! Seriously when it comes to trying new food it is one of the worse things for me. After I get this down, my Best friend Danielle and I will be doing some massive working out....I may cry but it will be worth it in the end. I am hoping when August comes I will be in awesome shape and happy with my body image :) So here is to trying new foods...healthy options and working out!
