Okay, so it is now 10 days that I have been off focus from my goals. I know that my goals are important to me, and I am worth it. So, back to it, today is, as everyday always is, Day 1! Today my weight is 175.8, up again from yesterday. i know this because I am back to weighing daily. I tried the once weekly weigh in plan for a couple of weeks, but I feel like weighing daily really keeps me focussed and driven. I don't get emotional about the numbers, I just really need to have that information in my head every day to have my mind in the right place. So, back to daily weigh ins, and I am going to start tracking my calories etc again. I started another 12 week challenge here on the challenges board, and my goal by the end of those twelve weeks is to be down 18 pounds. I lost 16 pounds (4 more than my goal of 12) over the last 12 week challenge, so I am challenging myself to work a little bit more consistently this time around. That should put me at my goal weight of 135 pounds by September 29 if I can maintain a 1.5 pound loss each week. I am looking forward to getting below 170 again, because I am rewarding myself with a hair cut, and I REALLY need a hair cut to get out of hair he**! Thanks to everyone who supports me here at SP and at home(my buddy and hubby especially) for sticking by me. It makes it so much easier to stay on plan and get back to it when I lose my way!

Well, I hit the wall that I built for myself by over exercising. I do not need to push myself so hard, but I still do it. I am going to really step down my exercise, and do just 30 minutes daily, and try to get my calories right, not take things so seriously. I gained 6 pounds last week, and have taken 1 off already, but I just feel so crappy from eating crappy and not exercising! Thanks to my buddy and my hubby for motivating me and supporting me to stick with my goals and believe in myself! I don't ever want to go back to where I was last year, and I never will!

So, I worked so hard last week, did 2 hours of cardio every day but Thursday when I did 3.25 hours. I was really wonky with my calories though. So, I was very nervous to weigh in this morning. I was really hoping to be under 170, but I guess I will have to be happy with going down .8 instead. I was very disappointed with this number at first, but when I came here to check in, I realize that I am actually right on track because of my 3.4 pound loss last week. Next week will be under 170, and I am going to do less cardio this week(I even took today off), keep my calories consistent and make sure that I stick to my plan of not weighing in again until next Monday. Have a great week everyone!

I planned a treat for myself today. I won a free donut on the roll up the rim contest from Timmy Ho Hos, so I looked up the info and chose a Boston Cream at 250 calories. I savoured every single bite, and logged it in my day within my calorie range. mmmmmm

I know that emotional eating is a huge part of how I got into the shape I was in when I decided to make so many changes and get healthy. I have really fallen into so many traps. Any situation was an excuse to binge. Social get togethers, stressful day, boredom, loneliness, anger, trigger locations, birthday parties, the list goes on and on and on! I am not doing these things anymore. I have changed my food attitude. I see food now as fuel, not a way to pass time or stuff emotions. When I eat, I am thinking about all of the fun stuff it will give me energy for! With some planning ahead, I can avoid the pitfalls I find in certain locations that make me eat and eat and eat. With a change in attitude, I have a change in my health!
