Happy, happy day!

In a great mood today!

First of all, it's my oldest child's birthday. I cannot believe he's 8 years old. Yikes! Excited to celebrate tonight. We are keeping it simple - going to see Lego Movie as a family, and then meeting a small group for dinner and presents after.

Also, my weight in this morning clocked me in at a full 25# loss! I'm so stoked. My reward to myself was to buy some new workout clothes. I typically wear baggy sweats and thrift store t-shirts. I'm fine with that, but I do feel grubby. I picked up two pairs of nice pants (grey and black) with an awesome tummy panel, and four racer-back athletic tank tops. AND I stayed within my ranges for the past 4 days. I struggle with that, so I'm very proud of myself. I'm feeling less hungry, so I think my stomach is finally getting used to this lifestyle!

Then I went to take my exam for this week. With the chaotic schedule changes (spring break, working PMs, etc), I had kind of been slacking. I kicked it in gear last night, and had a review session with a classmate this morning. Must have worked, because I rocked a 98%!

I also had a great day at clinicals yesterday, I was kept busy, got to do some new exams, and received awesome feedback from both my peers and the techs. I love when things go right - can't wait to keep this positive roll going!

    It's great to hear how well you're doing with your calorie ranges and everything. And congratulations on the 25 lb. loss! That's excellent!!! And new workout clothes are the best. I'm glad you treated yourself to something nice.

    Happy Birthday to your son!
