"Self Respect is the cornerstone of all virtue"
-John Herschel

It's something we all need to take note of. Self-Respect really is where it's at. If we don't respect ourselves we won't take care of ourselves, treat ourselves well, and in turn, we won't demand the respect we deserve from others. So whether we are fit or fat, healthy or unhealthy, happy or unhappy, just remember to respect yourself, everything, and I mean everything starts with self-respect.

I had a great OP day yesterday. In fact I was within my fat intake range (which rarely happens!), and I was over just a tad on my carbs and protein, which is great, because when I first started tracking the macros, I was seriously going over carbs by like 100g+, mind you, I had a lot of fiber in my diet, and alot were from fruits and veggies, but still. I'm anxious to see if this will help me get to goal. Because last time I got into the low 150's I couldn't break into, and stay in the 140's, so I will be anxiously waiting to see if this is what I needed, I think it might be!

I've been busy trying to help plan a wedding shower for my brother and his future wife. I feel kind of bad, cause the maid of honor is suppose to do it, but she hasn't, so I'm trying to handle it. And I guess her mom is kinda being a butt about it, so her and I are trying to get it together. I'm just trying to come up with ideas for food. She would like to do a taco bar, so we are getting together on thursday to talk about the details of food. Should be fun.

I've been kinda under the weather, really since late last week, but I'd been ignoring it and still going to the gym and what not through Sunday, but I think I am planning to take tonight off. I really don't want to get any sicker than I am, so it might be for the best, plus I am over half done with my gym goal for the month, so I think I have a few days off to spare :)

Anyways, I better get back to finishing up some work, I need to leave a few minutes early to get to the polls to vote (our Primary is today) in order to beat the rush. But I Hope everyone is having a great day!

Ugh I hope you are feeling better soon but congrats for a great OP day! that is great! Don't you feel great? Each day that goes by OP, I just feel better and better.

Funny you mention the shower thing. I just got into it this morning, I am a maid of honor in a friend's wedding in April and to ME, it's always the family who puts on the shower and the Maid of honor puts on the stagette. I'm actually kind of upset because the family is putting it all on me. Not that I mind that much but it's a lot of time/effort and money to put on a bridal shower AND a stagette all within 1 month. For my wedding, my Mom threw a shower for me and hubby's family threw a shower for me. I guess I'm bias though because this is all getting thrown on me and it's still fresh and I'm fuming a little. Honestly if I didn't mention anything, the poor girl wouldn't even have a shower!

Sorry to rant!!!

Good for you for going out to vote...Indiana doesn't have primaries until May and usually there is little to contribute to the discussion by then!

Are you comfortable with the decreased carbs?
