So much energy . . .

Usually this time of year I am in a funk. No energy, and not enough hours in he day to get things done. Last year I really struggled and I remember going in search of a women's vitamin for some energy. This year, I am not sure if it is the lack of caffeine (26 days soda free!) or the exercising I am doing (we just got a Wii fit) but I have more energy than I can imagine!

Yesterday I did about 8 loads of laundry, furminated one dog and bathed the other, cleaned out their crates, stripped and remade beds, did a craft with McCartnye worked out on the Wii fit for an hour, went grocery shopping, rearranged the living room and cleaned the entire downstairs. I even lost 1.3 pounds! (we are doing a weight loss thing at work)

Today I got up in a great mood, went to church, made salads for the week, made breakfast burritos for the fridge, made a pizza bake for tomorrow's dinner with homade garlic roll, froze a dozen twice baked potatoes I made this afternoon, baked peanut butter cookies, made macaroni singles and tuna salad for lunches, AND I lost another 1.3 pounds. Woot!

I am loving this energy and hope it doesn't come crashing down around me anytime soon! I am hoping that I can lose some weight with good choices and still eating what I want in moderation. I know that depriving myself of what I want will just make me gain the weight right back.

Wish me luck!

This is awesome! I'm glad it's all working out. I hope I get some more energy from going without soda (pop in MN!)I am a whole 2 days without, but have you to thank for that. Keep us updated with your inspiration!
