Weight Loss Journey – Day 52

As mentioned last Friday, I did start the Harley Pasternak workouts once again this morning!  It felt really good to get that first 32 oz. of water down as well.  When I started work this morning, I did pick out my two snacks for today – whether I ate them or not I didn’t know…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 48

I told myself this morning, just get out of bed a bit earlier and take it one day at a time.  I was actually excited to get up and weigh myself first thing because I knew I had done better yesterday, along with drinking more water.  After weighing in with Omada, I used my Renpho…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 47

After taking a break since the 1st of the month, I’m ready to start my weight loss journey posts once again!  While on vacation, I did enjoy a bacon cheeseburger with the bun, regular fries, brats on a regular bun – however, for my birthday dinner, I chose to have the honey mustard bourbon salmon…
