^I'm linking up with these blogs for Five on Friday!^
1. Weight Loss Journey (so far)
Last November, I really got motivated to start my weight loss journey. Since then, I've lost almost 25 lbs. I was sick a lot between November-February and I also had my tonsils out at the end of December. Along with that, I've been keeping track of what I eat in a food journal, cutting back on my portions, not going for second helpings (even if it is one of my favorite meals/foods), not snacking as much during the day, making better choices when I do have a snack, and rarely having anything to eat after dinner. I've been drinking more water. Aside from water and my morning coffee, I have apple juice at night, (which is when I sometimes find myself craving something sweet) but I drink the Mot's for Tot's which has 40% less sugar than regular apple juice and it's mixed with water. Before I started having the problem and pain with my left hip, I had been walking a lot as well. I'm making small goals with losing weight and when I accomplish them, I make new ones.
2. Planner Meet Up
This past weekend, my friend L, and I went to a planner meet up that took place a few hours from where we lived. We really enjoy these meet ups and being able to see our planner friends who don't live near us and who we don't get to see as often as we would like to. We had a great time chatting with our friends and planning. It's definitely true what they say: planner friends make the best friends!

3. Fourth of July
I'm not sure what my plans are for the Fourth of July. I'm probably just going to stay home and relax and watch the fireworks on TV at night. With the constant pain in my hip, I've been at home a lot because it's hard to walk for a long time or to really enjoy going out and doing things. I hope you all have a very happy, fun, and safe Fourth of July!
