While this week was wonderful in some areas, it was not a good FOOD week for me. Most days my schedule changed from its normal routine & the good foods were just not there for a myriad of reasons. In some cases, poor planning left me without a healthy food and by the end of the week the money was simply not there to purchase the good stuff. My weekly weigh in reflected it too. I gained 1.5lbs.
But just like any other setback there are times when we have to regroup, recharge & restart. I'm going into this weekend feeling hopeful but yucky. The raspberries in my smoothie had lots of seeds and scratched my throat so much it's hard to swallow much of anything. Since I had been eating well this week, the sudden intake of junk has left me feeling, bloated, constipated and sluggish. I need to detox and get my system back on track.
I just wanted to let everyone know that there won't always be sunshine, the journey isn't quick and is not without obstacles. Just stick with it. If you fall, get back up. If you indulge or eat more than the suggested portion size, just start again with the next meal. If you slack off in exercise, pick up where you can at the next opportunity. Just don't give up. I won't.

So I weighed in this week and I have OFFICIALLY made it to my first short term goal. OH!! BUT WAIT!! The great news doesn't stop there. I went a step further and decided to take my measurements. *Drum roll please*
-lost 3in on my waist
-lost 2in on my hips
-lost 2.5in on my arms
Yes, I'm turning in to QUITE the FINE BROWN FRAME!! HOWEVER, while I am on a high, I know that things can turn very quickly if not maintained. These numbers motivate me, and I know I must keep up the momentum. I've printed the measurement numbers so that I can put them in a place that I can see them regularly, as a reminder and as a motivator.
I haven't been working out as much as I'd like ( or as much as I can for that matter) . That is to change immediately. I have learned some things about pain. All pain is not bad pain. Some pain is good pain and means that your body is healing, rejuvenating, reviving itself from wear, tear and misuse. Recognize which pain you are actually experiencing and decide whether it is necessary to rest or push through. Right now it think that it's time to PUSH to the next level.

I'm already starting off on the wrong foot and I know it. But I plan to play catch up. I've been a member of SparkPeople.com since around this time last year. Shortly, after I stopped logging in and often forgot all about it. I later joined another site and did quite well; only because I did exactly what I was supposed to do... LOG IN. I have found that in my battle of the bulge, LOGGING IN, JOURNALING and KEEPING TRACK of my food is what works for me. I don't like to commit to ANYTHING!! I know me. I tend to get side tracked rather quickly. But I'm committing to this. To improving my health. I am making the commitment to my health and logging in SOMETHING everyday. My goal is to log my food, water intake, moods, exercise, ANYTHING daily. And I also plan to blog at lease once a week.
Here are my plans for the rest of the week (planning is key right?).
1)Planning my menu for the next 7 days so that I can shop and eat accordingly
2) Workout at least three days next week.
