I'll track and be mindful when school is out.
I'll track and be mindful when I get home from Texas.
I'll track and be mindful after camp is over.
I work 5 days this week and have VBS?! I'll start next week.
It's Wednesday already. Seriously. I'll start next week.
I've had no direction and no structure in my life this summer. I have my summer serving job at night, but without tutoring I have no structure to my days. I'm going to be really disappointed and frustrated with myself in August if I don't get it together NOW.
Summer 2014 goals:
1. Track and portion my meals
2. Eat healthy with a reward meal each week
3. Workout consistently - which means gym time, too
4. Late night snacking is out
It's July 5 already, but I can still salvage this summer. I have a month and 10 days left. This week I'm going to track with MyFitnessPal, be mindful of what I'm eating, and give myself structure to my days (and yes, that means I'm not sleeping in until 11 anymore).

Last week was a Nope week. Nope, I didn't workout. Nope, I didn't track what I ate. Nope, I didn't stop putting junk food into my pie hole.
This week is going to be a Yep week. Yep, I did get up at 4:30 and workout this morning. Yep, I did track my food. Yep, I didn't eat anything after dinner.
Yep, I did fully partake in all of the teacher appreciation goodies in the lounge.
Only time will tell.

I've had to work 2 days in a row. I'm throwing in the towel; I'm worn out. After 1- and 2-day work weeks for the past month, I'm not sure I can handle real work! On the plus side, my routine is BACK! I thrive on routine. My OCD side wants a predictable schedule. I've done much better eating-wise this week (after a ridiculous last week). I haven't been perfect, but I've made progress.
I've been thinking about Visalus shakes. Does anyone have any experience with them? They're expensive and they involve milk. I don't even like fatty mcfatty milkshakes because of the milk part (yes, I'm going to have osteoporosis). But, I've seen recipes for cookie and Reeses flavored shakes. Now that I can handle. I'm ruminating on it. If they will help me get rid of this last 10, well then, I can put up with a little milk (no seriously, I use a slotted spoon when I eat cereal so I don't accidentally ingest a little milk).

Today will be known as the Great Girl Scout Cookie Mishap. There are still some left. Not many, but some. The fortunate souls who survived my prep time are now safely tucked into the back of the freezer. Out of sight, out of mind.
After an amazing weekend, I was all revved up for an amazing week. And then a sweet, innocent, little Girl Scout in my class walks in with the aforementioned cookies. And I have two more boxes coming from another budding entrepreneur.
I'm writing it here first: The Mishap Part II will NOT happen. Will. Not. Happen.

It's amazing what I can accomplish when I put my mind to it. Sometimes my ultra-stubborn personality pays off. After a dismal week, I had an amazing weekend. I stayed on plan, tracked everything I ate, worked out hard, and stayed out of the kitchen. Now, as for why I can do that when I am home all day and not when I am at work 3/4 of the day is beyond me.
I went grocery shopping while hungry today. Always a bad idea. I ended up bringing home chips (my #1 trigger food) and M&Ms (a close 2nd trigger food). As soon as I got home (well, after I ate lunch) I portioned out both foods. I weighed them and put each serving into individual Ziploc bags. It's a self-inflicted challenge to eat them in moderation and by doing that I've paved the way to success.
Then, I was having the world's best chili (aka my dad's) for dinner. Gotta have cornbread with chili! Last week, when I heated up some of his chili, I made a pan of cornbread and almost ate the entire pan in one night. That was NOT happening again. Before I took a single bite of my dinner, I put 1 piece into my lunchbox, 2 into the fridge for dinners later this week, and 2 in the freezer. That left my 1 piece. I ate it with a fork and took very small bites. When I was finished, all I saw was an empty pan. Success.
Can this momentum carry me into this next week? I sure hope so! I'm feeling STRONG!
