Monthly Weight Loss and Pictures

Hey, guys!
This morning I weighed-in at 161. I gained 1.2 lbs this month but lost 1.25 inches overall. My weight has been fluctuating a ton the last couple of weeks. Mostly because I've been eating so much watermelon (I'm addicted!) and drinking a lot of water because of the heat. I can seriously gain or lose 2+ lbs in a day. Hopefully I'll be in the 150s again next month.
I never got to workout until the 17th of this month because we were in Ohio visiting family and then I wasn't feeling that great. My body has been seriously fighting against me but I'm a fighter and I've been fighting through it the last couple of weeks at the gym. I know that because of how I've been feeling, even though I'm working out really hard, that it's not always as hard as I used to workout but I'm doing the best I can. I'm trying to live one day at a time knowing that God's grace is sufficient for today and that His power is made perfect in my weakness. Thank you to everyone who has been keeping me in their prayers, by the way; I really appreciate it.
In other news, yesterday was my 26th birthday! :-D I can't believe that I'm over halfway through my 20s; life goes by so quickly! I'm so thankful to God for having blessed me with another year of life. We had stuff we had to do yesterday and so we celebrated my birthday today. We went to The Cheesecake Factory. It just opened days ago in Knoxville. I LOVE this restaurant! I have wanted them to open one here ever since I went to one in Florida. Then we went to see World World Z; Brad and I REALLY liked it! Brad bought me some daisies, a balloon, a sweet card and a gift certificate for $20 worth of cupcakes, cookies or whatever I want at a local bakery. He told me I'd love my gift but hate it at the same time and now I understand why. :-P

My Favorite Healthy Grab-and-Eat Snacks

Hey, Loves!

Emerald Sweet & Salty Mixed Nut Blend (PB&J flavor)
Dried Roasted Seaweed Snacks (You can find them in different flavors. I really like the cheddar and honey dijon kind that I buy at Walmart.)
Flavored Greek Yogurt
Mini Babybel Cheese
Pretzel Crisps

Different flavors of hummus with fresh veggies

Wheat Thins (The honey roasted are amazing!)
Baked White Cheddar Cheetos
Baked Regular Cheetos

Sugar Snap Peas (They're great if you're craving something crunchy or sweet.)
Organic Blue Corn Chips with Salsa

Annie's Organic White Cheddar Bunnies

Wasabi Peas

Honey Maid Low-Fat Honey Grahams

Orville Redenbacher's Smartpop Butter Single Serve Bags with Kernel Season's Popcorn Spritzer Butter and Kernel Season's White Cheddar Popcorn Seasoning. (They have other flavors if you don't like white cheddar.)
Also, this time of year I eat a ton of watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, pineapple, peaches, plums, strawberries, etc. You can't go wrong snacking on fresh fruits and veggies!
Until next time,
PS: Happy first day of summer!  :-D
