Total: 16 lbs
I'm not gonna lie, I was a little disappointed to have only lost 3 lbs because I have been working SO HARD. But I did cheat on my diet kind of a lot. I spent 2 weeks at home with my grandmother who of course cooked her delicious southern dinners and I just couldn't help myself. If you had ever had her fried chicken and homemade macaroni and cheese, you would understand.
But like my husband said, just because I weigh that much doesn't mean I didn't lose fat and gain muscle. I HAVE been going to the gym every single day, even Saturdays & Sundays, doing cardio and strength training. I really wish I had taken my measurements before I started losing weight, but of course I didn't. I can tell a huge difference just by looking though...and I've lost 2 pants sizes so far!

Healthy Recipe: Cheesy Italian Eggplant
House: We got everything unpacked in record time. We have almost everything organized, except for the office. And I have a few projects that I'm thinking about starting.
Goals for next month:
Lose 5 more pounds
Read 10 more books
Learn a new healthy recipe
Make a few Easter decorations
At least get the paint colors for the house approved (whether or not we will actually get the rooms painted is anyone's guess)
How did you do with your goals this month?
