10-pound Challenge Day 1

Today I started the 10-pound Challenge!  

I'm not gonna lie, I was not happy when I weighed myself this morning. I was several pounds heavier than what I thought.  But at the same time, I'm excited about the challenge.  I want to lose one pound a week--that's all!  That's so doable.  I'm planning on making small, gradual changes in my diet, and get back to exercising consistently.

I should be able to do pretty well on my diet this week since I've started back to school and packing my lunch every day.  I'll be taking a sandwich [on 100-calorie sandwich thins--those things are delicious!] and fruit for lunch every day.  My main diet goal for this week is to drink at least six glasses of water every day, and only one diet coke a day.  I'll allow myself to have one Dr. Pepper or Mr. Pibb a week because I love them and there's no way I'm giving them up completely!

I want to work out for at least 30 minutes five days this week.  I already exercised yesterday and today so I'm off to a pretty good start!  I started jogging again yesterday and I'm definitely going to have to work my way back up to where I was over the summer, but I'll get there.  I've been doing the 30-Day Shred again to try to tone up.

I'll be weighing in and posting updates every Monday!
