I slipped today, but I caught myself! After school and Girls on the Run, I had to run to DG (smoke detector battery decided to die IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT). I looked at the Little Debbie treats. Kept moving. I ended up with a bag of fun size 3 Musketeers. That's not a bad choice for a chocolate fix.
I ate 3 on the way home. That's, you know, 2 minutes at most BUT. I tracked them on MyFitnessPal and I've stayed away since. No downward spiral! AND it's PMS week! That right there is a big win.

Broken record here: last week did not go as well as I had hoped. BUT. Today I feel on track. I am going to conquer this week!
The workout problem has been fixed: Girls on the Run. I'm frustrated that I can't run like I used to so I don't want to do it. But, I didn't lose my running mojo overnight and I'm not going to get it back overnight. The Girls on the Run 5k is November 8. I'll be training for it right along with the girls. I want to be able to just run 3 miles without stopping - I'm not even worried about the time right now.
So now that working out has been taking care of (even though it's forced workouts, it still counts) I've replaced that goal with journaling.
This week's goals:
1. Track my food and measure portions
2. Don't gorge after school and in the evening
3. Journal consistently

I have internet. At home. Over Labor Day weekend, I moved. I went from the city to the tiny little farming town I work in. I now have a 3 minute commute. Heaven. It's heaven, I tell you. However, it took little local internet company nearly a month to come set up my internet. My cell phone bill is going to be astronomical.
I use MyFitnessPal to track my food intake, FitBit to track my activity, and SparkPeople to track a little bit of everything. With 2 out of 3 of those out of commission, my weight loss goals went on a bit of a downslide. I didn't lose too much ground (3 pounds up), but I've developed some habits I'd rather not have. Time to start working on those!
I have the worlds. worst. class. this year. Every day is a struggle. On Day 27 I'm still correcting the same behaviors and explaining the same basic routines that I was correcting and explaining on Day 1, 2, 3. Two steps forward, 5 steps backwards. I knew they were coming. This class has had a reputation (they earned it; it's not exaggerated) since they were in pre-k. But I was dealt a heavy hand this year. I'm working with a brand new teacher and a teacher who will be on maternity leave November-February. I will not let this class make me fat. They've got momentum on their side, but I will win.

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).
