Day 1

I have to say, day one was a little rough on me. I forgot my lunch this morning, so I spent ALL day with no food! I know, that is so horrible. But, Everything at school was either a sweet or fried food. So, I drank my 3 bottles of water (I am going to have my fourth one tonight :) and kept telling myself, do NOT eat those animal crackers!! When I got home, I was telling Matt how hard I think 6 weeks of this will be and he said, "Babe, the first week is going to be the hardest and if you can get through that you are good!" He is so right! Today, when I wanted to eat a sweet I kept thinking about what Tanna said in her blog: One thing I learned a LONG time ago....God NEVER gives up on us. Never. No matter what. Even when we fail, let him down over and over, He is still there waiting for us to get it right. I can't tell you how much this is motivating me. I want to get it right this time. I am about to leave now to go run at the park with Deanna. Day one has been a SUCCESS for me!!! I hope everyone else had a GREAT first day!

Today was super hard for me too. I was starving all day. I wish I had a job where I don't have time to think about food. Ha. When my kids eat their snacks like cookies and cinnamon rolls I just want to grab them. Ha Ha.
