Thoughts for day 1: 

Today was a good day. I tried not to obsess over making sure to work out or eat a snack. Our groupMe is sooooo encouraging because everyone is at different places in life, with their diet, and of course with exercise. Some people have personal trainers, some people work directly with unhealthy food daily. Some people have children, some have none and 1 is currently pregnant. It is a pretty cool group of women. So I appreciate having them to hold me accountable and I like being able to hold others accountable to their goals and lifestyle desires. As far as food, I used to struggle with feeling weak when I reduce my calorie intake and try different meal plans, but I was good today. I snacked throughout the day before I felt ‘hungry’ and I made sure to drink water periodically throughout the day and of course I added my lemon juice! Great first day.
