That is what August will be about. I'm taking a long, hard look at the past year of my journey. I'm recommitting to the consistency I started out with. I'm ready to see where this will take me.

I love to read. I'll read anything. Yesterday, I was just jumping around various blogs and read a statement that while it didn't strike me at the time, my mind keeps returning to it. Unfortunately, I can't remember exactly where I read it... Somewhere buried in the comments section, so I can't remember it exactly or give proper credit as this thought is not my original thought, but I thought I'd share:
‘Greener grass’ does not just exist, only grass that has received more attention and nourishment from somebody or nature. The lesson in this is that only if I nourish where I’m at will it be ‘greener’
This thought applies to so many areas where I feel like I'm working so hard when it's just not fair that it seems so easy for others... Careers, relationships, finances. I must remind myself that only by working on myself can I improve my situation. We can have no idea the work that others have truly put in. We can only work on ourselves and find peace with that.

Making healthy choices related to food and activity improves many aspects of life. When I am disciplined in my decision making, I feel in control of lots of outside factors as well such as work stress, how well I sleep, and my energy levels.
Why, then, do I let my healthy decisions suffer when factors out of my control intervene?
Why, when others let me down, do I feel justified in letting myself down?
Will eating ever NOT be my knee-jerk reaction to instability in my relationships?
Today, I see my struggles for what they are. I see my lack of progress as a choice I have made. I can only work on me, and today that is what I plan to do.

Going clothes shopping reminds me that I'm not quite where I want to be. I have found it easier to find clothes, and I have several items packed away that fit again. While these are victories, and I'm extremely grateful for the journey thus far; I can not let myself lose sight of my ultimate goal. I can not be content to stop at halfway.

This week is sure to be a busy week full of chances to get off track. In anticipation of the events ahead, I'm going to try to 'have a plan' in mind and continue toward my goals.
Monday is a staff meeting at lunch. I have no idea what will be on the menu, so I better pack a small meal. Monday evening we are going out to hear a local band, but I will avoid eating out. There are plenty much healthier things to eat at home (cheaper too!)
Tuesday evening I have a business meeting. Need to be sure to pack a snack for after work since dinner will be late.
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday should be manageable. Saturday I'm staying over with a friend since her husband will be out of town. I have a 5k that night, so I'll need to eat balanced all day in preparation for running it. I will not use the race as an excuse to reward myself with food.
This week I'm working on consistency.
