Update on my New Year Resolutions. Goodbye Oreo Cupcakes.

Greg had yesterday off so he finally took the Oreo Cupcakes to work today. They were taunting me. I wanted one SO bad, so I am so glad to see them go. It really took a lot of will power not to eat one.

Look how yummy they looked, I can't believe I resisted! Since the New Year (well really January 2nd, Mary had a get together on January 1st and she made deviled eggs, and I CAN NOT resist deviled eggs, they are beyond yummy!) I have been counting calories on my fitnesspal app and I really think it has helped me stick to it.

I also have been working out, I started the 30 Day Shred, I think it's a little more realistic for me at this time than P90x. Instead of and hour PLUS everyday for 90 days, it is 30 minutes for 30 days.  Let's see if I can stick to this and then maybe move on to P90x. So far I really love it, I am in pain everyday but I like that because then I know I am working hard. I may not be so positive about it when I have to switch to level 2!

So far I am sticking to my resolutions, which may be the longest I have ever lasted (pretty sad because it's only been 15 days). I am trying to stay positive though. Greg has even commented on how well I am doing. He was shocked when I used very little dressing on my salad, cut back on bread and PASTA (which is like unheard of for me, I live for pasta), didn't eat a cupcake, etc.! So far so good! I will make sure to update again in another 15 days! It will keep me honest!

I have some before pics, so I will take a pic tonight to compare and will post those (if there is any difference)! I know you are all dying to see my flabby tummy! :)
