Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

I'm going to inundate you with pics from my trip so beware
We left home on Wednesday at the crack of stupid (A.K.A 5:30 a.m.). We only stopped for a few potty breaks and then, in Armstrong, at the goat walk so Roo could play with the goats and feed the horses and I could have "homemade" ice cream and ginger cookies. (which I just remembered 5/6 are still in the car!). Since getting here, we've been swimming in two different lakes (A LOT), drove a pedal car, ate at two VERY good restaurants.... and lounged. Lots and lots of lounging. It's vacation, right?
hm, I've been trying to upload pics all day... something keeps resetting so I guess I move to plan B.
Alright, that should work.
I'll be updating daily so check back if you're interested.

So, my mission is to reflect on the round so far. My plan for the round was to maintain my weight (125) within a pound or two either way. So far, so good. I currently weigh 123.
Here's what I wrote when the round started.
The next 12 weeks I'm committing to the following goals for round 22:
For myself -
Strength training a MINIMUM of twice a week.
This is going pretty well. I was doing BodyPump two or three times a week. Then I started the MMA bootcamp and reduced it to once, if any. Unfortunately, I haven't done much since 06/30 when I hurt my calf. I've gone once. When I get home from my vacation, I'll get back at it.
Running a minimum of three times a week.
This one, no surprise, was an easy one. Until, again, 06/30. I had to take two weeks off but I've run twice with plans for more since 07/14.
Start making yoga a part of my cross training routine.
I've done yoga twice. Got to get there more regularly. There's no good reason not to. Unless you count laziness. I don't.
Stay hydrated. Make sure I'm drinking my 64 ounces a day.
I can think of only a handful of days that I missed my goal on this one. Most days, I actually get more.
Maintain my habit of tracking. Focus on being with my range 5/7 days a week.
I'm halfway on this one. My issue right now is my range keeps changing. (I switched to the fitness-driven calorie range option on Spark) I'm tracking. I'm not gaining a schwack of weight so I must be okay.
HIGH FIVES to me for consistency with running, tracking, and all the other stuff that I'm doing good on.
BUTT KICK for not doing more yoga.
A few more tweaks and I'll be happy with everything. Overall,

"What is your biggest challenge this weekend with food? What is your plan for staying in control?"
Almost every Friday, like clockwork, I start to veer off track... take out food, chocolate, skipped workouts.. you know the deal. The idea is, I can get back at it on Monday. No harm done. So, here's my plan... be more realistic. Harm is done when you cheat all weekend. I'll track all weekend, get my 5 full servings of freggies, avoid my high calorie drink treats and do my workouts.
Simple enough, right?
