    Just keep tracking.
    Gave in & hopped on scale 2 days too early-need to control my desire to weigh daily as it leaves me disheartened.
    Plans fell through to go to the gym, therefore plan B...
    Plan B - Will walk this evening & some push-ups, crunches, etc at home.
    Need to increase my water today- feeling dehydrated.
    Prepare for Sunday!
    Prep to cook 2 large meals so we can deliver to our family who needs some TLC.

    Been looking forward to the day I can fit into smaller sizes of clothing & this morning my watch is one notch down on my wrist LOL

    Challenging day. Noticed that some of us post our goals the night before & I'm going to try it out for a week to see if it helps w/motivation.
    JFT (Sunday)
    I will Pretrack healthy choices.
    Walk before family gets up.
    Stay calm while having breakfast.
    Go to church. Be grateful & patient.
    Cook & deliver 2 meals to family.
    Do something fun w/my kids. Beach??
    Early to bed.

    Have a good nite all.

    I will stay under my calorie goal and not over indulge in any single food
    I will express my wellness mantra
    I will work out for 90 minutes
    I will continue to be more patient on the road
    I am expressing gratitude for the beauty of the geese as they migrate back into our world. Love to hear them honk as they fly over.

    Meh, over my calorie goal thanks to a dinner out where I didn't make good choices or exercise portion control. Did skip the chips, desert and drinks.
    Expressed my wellness mantra.
    Worked out for 98 minutes including a 3.25 mile walk at a 16:19/mile pace
    Being patient on the road is a work in progress...

    For today:

    I will finish the week strong and stay well under my calorie goal. Don't over indulge in any single food.
    I will express my wellness mantra out loud, twice.
    I will work out for 90 minutes giving me 6+ hours for the week.
    I will continue to put things in perspective while driving.
    I am expressing gratitude for our favorite mountain restaurant. While I could have made better choices, the beautiful drive up and true friends are always good for our souls.

    Yesterday, 10/10
    1. Low carb :):/ I am not hungry, which is a really good thing, but I am craving carbs like crazy. Getting my water in though! But my hubby and I did split a bag of microwave popcorn last nite. Calorie wise that was OK, but not carb wise!
    2. Record everything I eat :)
    3. NO sugar :):)

    Sunday, 10/01
    1. Drink lots of water.
    2. limit my soda to just 1. My doctor told me that diet soda actually will make me crave sweets. I am trying to limit what I drink, but I do notice that if I have one in the evening, even though it is caffeine free, that I start to crave something sweet. So just 1 diet pepsi this morning to get me going. I am not a coffee drinker.
    3. NO SUGAR --- been really doing good with this, so here's to another day of sugar free

    Made it through the long weekend relatively unscathed, I guess. Logged as well as I could being out of town. Meetings, dinners, wine tours. Got in a ton of exercise, though, so that helped. Saturday was the family over for a BBQ. Then Sunday took some friends who helped us move out to eat. Ate close to maintenance Sat-Sun. Glad it's over and I can get back to my schedule. I'm not a very social person so four days in a row of that kind of stuff is just exhausting.

    JFT, 10/12
    1. Enjoy working from home with no one around except the dogs
    2. Stay within calorie limits
    3. Insanity Max 30 workout (month 2, week 2)
    4. Walk the dogs
