I did great yesterday, toast. I really want chips and ice cream so I'm trying to resist going to the market. This has not been a good week for me. My head just isn't in a good place this week. My summer is half over and I don't want to go back to work in September. I have one year to retirement. I keep telling myself it will go by fast and I can do it, but it is going to be a hard year. I just don't want to face it. I think I'm eating and watching TV through my summer to avoid thinking about it.

Oh my gosh, I totally agree its so much easier to stay on track after you've been on track for a few days already. I just need to get that few days under my belt!!!

Started really good today, until about 6pm. It could have been worse though, so I need to focus on that.

Its ok to struggle. What's important is that you do get back on track, and keep making progress. "Progress, not perfection!".

I had a great day yesterday - tracked and stayed within my calories!!! WAHOOOO!! I had an appointment after work and I ran out of time to work out, but that's ok.

Then today, I planned to go out for a beer with my husband before he goes out of town, but I tracked for it, stayed light the rest of the day, and made it work. I had something crazy come up tonight and ended up spending an hour on the phone with my cousin, which took away my workout time, but I still have plenty of time this week to get in my cardio. Its going to happen!!

Doing great today huh!? Yay!!!! Good job!!!! My day turned out busier than I had planned but it was good. The last day of my weekend. I went raspberry picking and did some some physical housework. My dinner choice wasn't great, but I'm still happy with the day.

Tomorrow back to work and my routine! It's usually easier to stay on track on work days! Here's to a fantastic Tuesday!!!

Hey! I've totally fallen off the face of the planet this week. Until this evening, I haven't spent more than 1 hour at my house since last Monday (except when I'm sleeping). It was one thing after another, every minute planned. I haven't even had time to do laundry. Thankfully, I think my busy schedule is over. It wasn't just work stuff either - a huge birthday party, my mom coming into town unexpectedly, a wedding last night, date with the husband (first time we've been able to do that in months), husband's baseball team BBQ.....etc etc etc. I'm so tired.

I only managed one day of cardio last week, and I didn't track at all. I ate very poorly. Some good choices, but some not good choice. I think I had 800 calories for breakfast today alone.

It's a new week. How did you do this week? We've still got over a month until September, still plenty of time to make progress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
