Weight-loss Update!

I've been watching my caloric intake for the past month, which is easier thanks to MyFitnessPal. Also, I invested in a Jawbone UP! Yay! It's the blue one and I have been none to refer to it as "Susie". I have a thing about calling inanimate objects human names. :O Anyways, I got Susie on Ebay for about half the price I was seeing in my local stores. I love that Susie knows when I'm sleeping (even if I forget to tell her I'm falling asleep)! Unfortunately, seeing the reality of how many hours I actually sleep is a little disheartening. I average 4.5 hours a night, and don't get me started on how many times I wake up. Alas, this is to be expected with a young one. I do miss sleep terribly though.
 
Since I've started logging my meals and exercising (here and there), I've lost 5 pounds! From what I've heard, a pound a week is good and it's more likely the weight will stay off. :) My next goal is to get more sleep exercise more often and possibly for longer periods of time. At the moment, I do light exercising maybe once or twice a week for 30 minutes. I've learned to multitask while working out too. Lol, I catch up on my reading while exercising! I have to!
 
As for my diet, I haven't changed too much. It's just about the portions right now. I'm on a huge zucchini kick right now too. So yummy and simple! My water intake is quite a bit more. Honestly, it was non-existent before! :P
 
That's it for now. I will check back in a couple more weeks!
