Some sort of happy heading.....I'll get back to you on that one

Feeling pretty great and I think it might have something to do with weighing 342 this morning! Yup, blew past 344 and I'm not looking back. I've been thinking about that number for so long that I haven't though much about what I'll do when I get past it. I don't know why it's been such a source of mental trepidation for me, besides being the lowest I got last summer. Or maybe that's just it. Either way, buh bye.
I did the biggest loser workout again on Monday and yesterday. I didn't do too much over the weekend, that workout on Friday really made me sore! Could be my imagination but the past two times it seemed to get a little easier. Not much, just a smidge. Still took breaks but I stuck with it thru the end. Ended up taking it downstairs to the basement(concrete floor), because jumping around on the creaky floor upstairs was driving me crazy. :)
Eating has been going pretty well, I haven't binged or eaten any junk lately. I've been toying with the idea of starting to count my calories. I don't do that now, just write what I eat in my food journal and eat mostly lean meats, carbs, lots of veggies, fruit and some dairy. Not really following any set plan. But when I was paging thru my calorie count book the other day I looked up sweet potatos. Which I eat a lot of. And it said a 4 oz serving was just about 100 calories. I eat pretty big potatos then, because mine usually weigh in around 10-12 oz. And that's a lot of calories for something I eat as a side or snack. So I started thinking about calorie counting. Maybe just for a few weeks. And start cutting my sweet potatos in half. :) Although I think I've been doing pretty good for not counting calories. 36 pounds, woot! Anywayyyyssss.
I got some new books over the weekend. The new eat clean diet cookbook 2 and the best of eating clean, or something like that. Both cookbooks, so hopefully you'll see some attempts at the recipes here soon. There's actually quite a few I'd like to try. I am very big into the eating clean scene, have been since I discovered Oxygen about 6 years ago. I'm a sucker for Tosca Reno and pretty much anything she puts out, (besides that awful pan g book, what the hell was she smoking?).
Anyway, I gotta go. We got 70+ degree weather here, first time since last fall and I need to get off my ass and go enjoy it. Till next time. :)
