Today is Thinspiration Thursday & I realize nearly all of my days are filled with thinspirations. Even thought I just read the goal to thinspire 5 people today, I had already thinspired three people. That makes me a Thinspirationalist!
About the food tracker, I do my best to be as honest & accurate as I can be. I know I inadvertently miss things here and there. I base my goals on my progress. I run the report, look at the pie chart and I am taking this seriously. If my carbs are high, I look at that in future meal planning. The food tracker helps me make changes in my meal planning. There would be no benefit to me if I were not diligent in my reporting.
Let's face it if you cheat on the food tracker, then you must do it for a reason. Its your own deal and deep down inside you know the truth. When its all said and done, its your tool to use as you see best. If you need to skew your food tracker results, RIGHT ON!

"Big Days" are great because they are usually filled with friends, family & yummy food like wedding cake. I usually want to look my best or fit into a goal dress. Might even do a boot camp, super lean eating program, something to get us ready for our "Big Day".
After the "Big Day" and the dust settles we are left with getting back on track. The only problem is our track was some program or crash diet. Our track needs to be re-set and a new plan in place.
Heck, I think this is normal, I read it on Spark all of the time. As a matter of fact sometimes we take a little time to enjoy all of the things we didn't eating preparing for the "Big Day".
I want to be armored with a "Day After the Big Day" plan. I am getting ready to fit into my "goal dress" for a wedding and I want a plan for that next day. I don't want to binge and go off track. I am planning ahead for the "Day after" the "Big Day"
I do have a plan to enjoy a big slice of wedding cake!

Our "Skinny Pumpkin" Challenge for today is to blog our October goals. I have several very important days coming up. My oldest niece's wedding, she was the first grandchild/child/niece in our family. She sort of belongs to all of us because.... well because we felt that way about her. Often, I thought of her as my own daughter.
Also, she is incredibly thoughtful and considerate, she really makes us all so proud. I want her wedding day to be special forever. One of my October challenges is to try to look my best for her day. I am usually all about the kids, the workout, the scrapbooking & yes, Baily. I rarely focus on my appearance. I guess I just think I am what I am. I dont have too many expectations in the looking good department. But on this day I will try very hard to look my best.
She loves her family very much and she wants the best for us. I know my sister will care also. Naturally, I have offered to help out in everyway I can and she knows I will jump for her. But because she is my spectacularly meticulous niece, she has it all handled as usual.
I have another special day in October, special for my oldest daughter. We are so very excited for her as she is welcoming someone new in her life. I want to help her make it a very special month. Halloween is a ALWAYS a big day for her. Its also my nieces birthday and they have a really cool costume idea. This will be a fun month!
I want to help my mom with her health issues and help her to feel better. Hopefully we can make that happen with the help of a bunch of doctors. I am very lucky to come from a family filled with medical professionals who have their eye on the ball. Medical management for a parent becomes very important as they age and my siblings have great skills for that.
Those are my goals for October.
