Chill continues

Apparently it gets warmer after today so that's good news.
Last night it took me an hour and 45 minutes to get home, normally 40min tops. Buses were just not showing up, traffic was bumper to bumper. Amazingly enough I was relatively calm about it but when I got home I was an eating machine.

I don't know if it was because I hadn't eaten anything since noon or if it was the extended amount of time in the freezing temperature but it was ridiculous. It was continuous snacking. Of course by the time I got home I was tired and hungry so no workout happened. Though I did get a semi decent (30min) walk in via the indoor pedestrian walk ways during the day.

Today I'm going to space out my food a bit and make sure I get an afternoon snack in case it's the same adventure getting home tonight.

This weekend I need to get semi sorted for Hawaii, I don't want to leave everything to last minute so that means picking up fuel gels and anything else I can think of.

I also need to focus on water, I haven't been getting enough lately.

I have a confession to make - I'm addicted to tracking things. I adore spreadsheets and data. Because of this I have a notebook dedicated to tracking my WW details like total pounds, total pounds lost, weekly points, weekly activity points. I was adding new dates to this tracking sheet where I realized that's I've lost about 2lbs in the last 4 months. I'm not discouraged by this but it does make me realize that I'm probably not following the program to the best of my ability.

I am a slow loser but this is ridiculous. I get absorbed by the weekly plus and minuses that I don't look at the bigger picture. I'm proud of my accomplishments so far but I want to get to goal.

When I get back from my marathon I'm going change the focus of my blog a bit and highlight the goals of the program. Be accountable for my water, my fruits & veggies, my milk intake and my activity. Take my tracking obsession on to the blog to find out what works and doesn't work so I can finally get to goal.
