Mark and I have also been calorie tracking for several weeks now and it has made a big difference! I've already lost 5lbs, but I've got a bit more to go yet...I'm aiming for my pre-wedding weight! :) We usually get to the gym about 3 or 4 times a week but now that its just me, I'm going to try for every night, even if its just for a quick jog.
I'm sure I'll stay busy, with three pets and a house to take care of, not to mention full time work! Plus I'm teaching a class this semester so that has definitely kept me quite busy!! I really want to be purposeful with my time when he's gone and not just get lazy once I'm home from work. I think its important for me to develop good habits now for future deployments...not that I'm looking forward to them I just think it will be benefit both of us.
Ah well, almost to the end of Day 1.....peace out from the south!
