Today is Day 7 (in a row) of tracking food again. Its going really well and I'm staying within calorie range (or only over by 50-100 calories once or twice). I have a family reunion this weekend out of town so I'm a little worried about tracking food and staying within calorie range (and I probably won't be getting exercise in). I'm just going to keep using the mobile app to track whatever I eat regardless of whether or not I over indulge.
I know I said at the end of June that the scale was back into the 180s, but for a moment since then, the scale got back up to 194. Within the past two weeks, the scale went back to the 180s. I think it might have been mainly water weight from poor food choices, but still its nice to see it going back down. I'm sure the consistently tracking of food helps the scale go down also.
As I've had the most trouble with food tracking this week of tracking food again feels like a huge victory! I just have to stick with it!
In other news, I seem to have caught a bit of a summer cold. When working my part-time job on Monday night, my mom kept asking if I was okay cause I looked "out of it". I kept saying "I'm fine" but she was like "sure you are". Turns out she was right as I woke up yesterday (Tuesday) with a fever of 101. I took a sick day from work yesterday and got the fever down. It is still gone today, so I'm back at work, but my energy is gone, zapped, tank is running on fumes.
So obviously there will be no Zumba tonight.
I'm hoping I am feeling better tomorrow. I don't want to travel this weekend and be sick the whole time.
