Im going down!

I'm back to obsessing over the scale.   The other night the entire bathroom was flooded. Without a concern for anything else, I saved the scale first. I was so worried that it wouldn't work , I grabbed it and wrapped it in a towel.  Thankfully the scale was left unharmed!

The holidays sure did throw me off. I put on a total of 5 pounds in a few weeks time frame, and its been almost a month and I'm having a hard time taking this weight back off. Ive only lost 1.9 pounds of it, and my clothes are feeling tighter. I invested in a great pedometer and it works well. However, I am only on average at 6,000 steps per day.I want to reach 10,000 steps per day. I really thought with my everyday movement, without structured exercise, it would be more. For me the key is exercise along with eating well. Its been really hard to get moving. My foot is hurting from the bad weather and its just so dark and cold out there. I am always so busy throughout the nights and weekends  filled with out of the house activities, its really hard to find the time to do exercise in the house. I was trying to gt up at 4:30am to start my day instead of 5:30am but that just made me more tired and irritable. I am trying to focus on the upcoming spring weather. I started today taking saffron elite, and I'm hoping that it helps bring me down off of this carbohydrate and sugar high. Any feedback about health in general , especially your thoughts about saffron would be helpful?
