Where have I been? Well, I've been here. But not really. And that's very evident in my weight tracker. I am done with excuses. I am done with cheats and sneaks and half-ass tracking.
I'm in it to win it.
Lately, I have been using "well, that's life" as a reason to not be stricter. Yes, things come up, stuff happens and sometimes food choices are not in my control. BUT, I CAN control what I do with those food choices, when stuff comes up and things happen. I CAN pick through the bad food and find something good. If not - one word comes to mind moderation.
I took the traveling journal (aka "the lucky journal" to some) this week. The idea is to track what you eat and how much you exercise in writing with like a pencil. To me, it's old school. I track everything on my phone. We'll see just how lucky this traveling lucky journal is. I am tracking in both places.
I am not happy that weight has crept back on. I am certainly not happy that the really cute pants I bought last summer are SUPER tight and not at all flattering. I'm really, really unhappy that I had to BUY a few pairs of pants just get me through. Ugh. If that isn't incentive enough, I don't know what is.
PLUS, in 4 months, we are going to Nashville. I'd like to be able to wear cute, fun clothes while we are there. I know what needs to be done. Just like Nike...
...Just do it.
