I am still eating healthy. I still track, read articles & blogs, and try to stay away from "bad" foods. My main drink is still water! But... something is missing. I just feel like I can't push myself to do any more. I want to lose more weight, but I just don't know how to push myself to do it.
Basically, I am maintaining my weight now instead of losing more. I should workout more - I will be more fit, healthier, and then I will lose more weight. For some reason, I just can't make myself do it. In 2 weeks, it will be my one year anniversary here at Spark! I am not gaining weight, but I just feel like I am not letting myself be better. I don't know what to do to fix it.
I have so much stress going on with my life, and I think it is bringing my down. I am not depressed too often, but I get really sad moments. I randomly think to myself: " I should just eat three cheeseburgers". Then I ask myself - why would I do that? I barely eat red meat now. I know I WON'T eat that bad food, but my mind keeps telling me I should. Or my mind keeps telling me to eat more snacks.
I am trying to stay busy so I don't just sit and snack - but something keeps telling me I should. It is almost like I am fighting with myself. I am so happy I made it this far with my weight loss. 72 pounds lost in a year - that is so awesome. But why am I struggling? I wish I could figure out what my problem is so I could fix it!
I think I need to change up my meals more. Maybe if I change what I am eating on a daily basis, it will help me get back into a better mindset. I still need to figure out how to make myself workout more!

I have another headache today - yuck. I wonder if it is from lack of sleep.
I got up at 6am Saturday & Sunday morning. I took a nap, but I still think I needed more sleep! I know I can't "catch up" on sleep, but I should try to get more every night! If that isn't the reason for the headaches, then I really don't know what is causing it. I was sick last weekend, so maybe I never got fully better? Who knows. It could be from a new hair product I got - certain smells really give me headaches. grr
Hopefully this work week isn't too bad. This weekend if my cousin's bridal shower. I am going with my Mom, Aunt, and cousins. We are staying overnight in a hotel & doing something in that area the next day.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

So I only have 4 days of work this week. I was out sick on Monday. That was the first time I called out sick from this job. When I started in Feb, I didn't call out sick even when I had a double ear infection & Sinus infection. It was busy tax season & I just started the position. I didn't want to ruin anything!
It is crazy it is Wednesday already. I am watching the dogs this week while my parents are on vacation. I went to the food store last night to buy FF milk. I ended up getting ground chicken, turkey sausage, chicken sausage, yogurt, and a few other things for the week. I am going to make chicken chili tonight. mmm I can't wait haha.

My tracker suggests I have between 60-168 for my protein everyday.
It seems like I am always on the low end. In the last week, the highest I had was 104, and the lowest was 30. Yikes!
I should probably add more chicken to my diet? I should probably look up what else I could have. I don't really eat red meat too often, so I can't add that.
I am glad the weekend is almost here! As long as the weather is nice, I am going out tomorrow morning. I want to try out a local farmers market & then go fruit picking. Apparently there are blackberries, nectarines & peaches out for picking right now. I only did pumpkin, apple & strawberry picking before. Unfortunately I just missed blueberry season!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Keep Sparking!
