Tired :(

Ugh, I am so damn tired! Yesterday was the first day getting back to the gym. I lifted upper body and then did about 30 mins of cardio on the treadmill. Boy am I feelin it today!! It was amazing how working out gave me so much more energy to do things around the house.
I have been eating a lot healthier lately concentrating on incorporating more fruits and veggies into my meals. Yesterday I put romaine and tomato on my sandwich. Which is something I never do! I also decided to have a clementine with my sandwich instead of goldfish or chips. Then at dinner my husband cooked pasta with a shrimp and a spicy tomato sauce. I went totally overboard and ate too much pasta. Next time I will try to be more conscious of portion sizes when it comes to foods I really love. Late night was the icing on the cake because after having what I thought was a satisfying dessert (banana with ff whip topping and lite choc syrup) I pigged out! I followed that up with two huge bowls of chocolate cheerios and a bunch of sour cream and onion goldfish! I could have killed myself-argh!
Well, today is a new day and I can learn from my mistakes. One of my favorite sayings is that, "it's progress and not perfection." So, I am making strides in the right direction and I am making a choice that today will be a better than yesterday :)
I have really appreciated all the support so far and look forward to continued support and suggestions on my journey. Have a great day everyone! Oh, and I am going to try and get some more pictures of myself up here soon.
