Enough is enough

Well I've tracked my eating for two days, it hasn't necessarily been on plan but I wrote it all down. I was up 0.2 at weigh in, probably due to the long johns I was wearing and I had no interest in changing out of them and back into them. What truly hit me on Saturday was how I thought wishful thinking would make me see a loss on the scale. I've made very little progress in what is now adding up to months. I have no one to blame but myself as I haven't been paying attention as I should be.

I think I needed a break from the tracking and the always focusing on weight loss, the problem is a break can turn into a lifetime if you're not careful.

So once again I'm going back to week one. Starting with the tracking and encorporating more exercise. My priority is to get the tracking on target. There have been far too many slides into bad behaviours.

This morning I came in early to help a colleague with a project. She had mentioned that we could go for breakfast which would have been a Tim Horton's breakfast sandwich (I forget the exact points but I think it clocks in at about 11). Instead I got up half an hour earlier and had oatmeal for breakfast. I'm far too easily swayed into unscheduled eating like buying lunch when I've brought.

I need to stay diligent.

What brought all this on? I don't even want to think about how many times I've started over, but you know what? It doesn't matter, the point is not giving up and picking yourself up. I don't care if I have to start over a bizillion times at least I'm not settling.

I want goal by June....enough said.

Goal by June, awesome! Don't think about what you shouldn't be doing, think about what you SHOULD do. Make a healthy lunch, eat enough veggies, exercise. You can do it!
