I am here!

Ok, I am eating great and exercising daily! Woo hooo! I am losing inches but not a lot of pounds still, I am ok with that because I feel strong and healthy and happy! I am still in size 10... but they are looser, and I tried on a dress of my Moms today to wear to a special event I have coming up - it was an 8 and it fit great!
I have tried some really yummy, healthy recipes lately - that I will get on my food blog ASAP - Like minted rice and garbanzo bean curry, and an awesome cucumber salad that is sooo great - I used fat free greek yogurt and fat free sour cream in it, and my kids ask for it as a snack!!
Now, my biggest obstacle is to be able to fall asleep earlier so I can get up and workout earlier!
I also need to get some kind of calorie counter so I can do that. I write down everything and I am pretty sure I don't eat enough although I don't know when I would squeeze in time to eat more! Here is a typical day (today actually)
B- 3/4 c Quinoa w/ 1/4 c skim milk and 1 TBSP Agave Nectar
*Run 3 miles, Bike 6 miles
L- Smoothie w/ 1 c skim milk, 1 banana, 5 strawberries, 2 scoops "Cinch" Protein powder from Shaklee
*Jillian's No More trouble Zones DVD (which says it is 40 min, but is actually 55)
D- 4 oz Chicken Breast with Lemon Pepper, 2 c black bean and quinoa salad, 1 slice homemade whole wheat bread.
snack - Yoplait Yogurt, the lowfat lemon.

Yay! You are doing so well! And, inches is always a good thing. Like trainermomma says, measuring is the most accurate way of noticing a difference! I'm so excited for you! So jealous too, that you get to spend time with my family! Hope you have fun! Wish I could be there to see you! Love ya cuz!
