I can't make myself care when I don't. Just doesn't seem to be in my power- but I can check in fully every time I DO care and do my best to make it stick. Excited to some of the initial gain coming back off easily as I just flow back into the right eating and exercising cycle. I will say it is MUCH easier this time also. I don't have many of the cravings and crash I did before.
Will be happy to conquer my next 5 lb loss and get back to my lowest adult weight. I am giving myself a big high five for a good few days and focusing on today. :) HIGH FIVE YOU!!! Now go get some Sweat on :)...

Ok, so my big major moved equaled total shut down of all effort to stay sane, eating out all the time, nothing horrible- but 2.5 months consistent daily lack of tracking food, little formal working out. All of that, ofcourse, equaled putting back on 10 of the 10lbs I lost. My typical behavior pattern. However, I can't do much about the last 2.5 months. So. I am just re-setting and trying again. LOL.
I re-set all my goals and weight. I was 192 in Jan of this year. I am still down to 182 which is 10lbs maintained so I am just going to focus on the positive and continue whittling. I am just gonna take things 20 lbs at a time for now and focus on having a Healthy summer. I have a trip to Europe in Sept and I have little doubt that I will do lots of walking- but also lots of eating.
For now, I'm just going to focus on the step in front of me and have a healthy, active, good eating summer. Starting with a Tuna and Fish Day!!
Reset goals, reset attitude, back on track, and staring straight ahead..... OY

My Valentines Day was AWESOME, and a total derail LOL. My husband brought me home an Amazing delicious dinner and my favorite tequila. OH How I indulged!! OY... today at least I did a pretty good job of getting back on track. Didn't eat everything perfectly healthy, but I did stay in my calorie count. Now to edge my way back from the Dark Side. We take possession of our new house tomorrow. Here comes a Little more CRAZY!!! Whew... I will stay focused on the progress and that each day is a new day to make all the right choices. I feel good about how far I have come. I have plenty to go still, but I am moving in the right direction and that is what matters most!

So on the upside my weight is down a little more. Hit the 175.4 mark, which means I have lost 16.6 pounds so far.. :)..
On the not Out part....I am so stressed with my workload I am having a hard time staying focused on feeling Good about being healthy. I don't want my work towards being healthier to get lost as just one more obsession in a list of many. I tend to be a little Type A. However, me staying AWARE of that desire and reality is a big step for me
On the Further Upside. I am feeling very good about how I look in my clothes. Amazing what 9 inches off someone's frame can do for their state of mind.
Finally, on the not Out... I WISH I was out better, and deeper at night. I am having a hard time sleeping again... *sighs*. totally my own doing cause of my workload. It's on my List :)

Last two days have been a little rough! Totally fell off the map. My workload was so freaking crazy I couldn't even Think about the calorie counting, workout committed journey I have been on. I do feel I still was careful to make good eating choices---For example, during my all day training Monday, I packed a grilled chicken, spinach, and strawberry salad when I knew there would be unhealthy subs delivered to training Monday. I made sure I had protein bar for the afternoon to keep from hitting the vending machine like everyone else. Yesterday, I was a Little more lax ( we are big Fat Tuesday celebrators since my husband is from Louisiana!) and last night I enjoyed my one tequila and king cake. I got the baby so it seems I am going to have to buy next year LOL....
Normally, when I am working 14 hour days is when I eat my Worst and just kinda Checkout of the caring about my health agenda, but I feel pretty good actually at my ability to still be uber conscious about what I was eating even without the TRACKING behavior to monitor myself. I was rewarded by stepping on the scale and holding my weight even. That might not seem like a victory- but normally I gain 4-6 pounds every time I have an long training event. Being overworked is where I think most of my Binge behavior developed honestly.
So, happy to be back today, feel very good about how I'm looking in these yoga pants this morning. Now time to put them to work.
