Greeting my friends.
I've spent a lot of time thinking since I posted my blog yesterday. I was having a pretty rough day yesterday and I let a lot of things get me down. Things were just not going well financially and my weight was up. I woke up this morning with another email from my bank and I thought, "ugh, here we go again", but I made a plan and things WILL get better. My plan may be frowned upon by most, so I've chosen not to post about it, but trust me, it's nothing illegal! :)
As for the weight gain, my good friend TRAVELGRRL got onto me about a few things, and got me thinking about the person I used to be. So as of today I will be starting a new 10 minutes of daily fitness streak. I will take my stack of blank post-it notes to track each day. I'll also take a picture of each post-it note and post it on my blog, so you all can help keep me accountable. My first round of exercise won't be until I get home - cause I wore a dress to work today. So look for my first post-it note pic tomorrow!
Thanks so much to all my SP friends for everything! :)

So I apparently have a seriously distorted view of being healthy & weight loss. After being so good a couple weeks ago (eating healthy, tracking, exercising, and losing 4 lbs) I apparently thought that was enough and I went right back to eating terrible and not exercising. My official weigh-in day is tomorrow, but I peaked this morning and am back up 3.5 lbs. Instead of getting back with the program today, I have done nothing but shove junk food in my face. Why do I always sabotage myself? In what world does eating well for 1 week undo all the bad eating of the past 20+ years?
I'm just not sure what I'm going to do with myself. I am so tired of all the ups & downs, but I guess I'm not really willing to do what it takes to do anything about it.
This isn't a "feel sorry for me" blog, it's just the facts. Something has to change. I'm just not sure what it is, or how to do it. I know what I "should" do, it's just a matter of getting myself to do it...

So I'm down 4 lbs from last week, I've been exercising more, and I've been eating less. Oh, and I've been spending way more time on SP. Things finally feel like they are "normal" again.
The new job is going well. I've been getting high praises from clients, my boss, the owner, and some of my co-workers. I know there's still a lot to learn, but luckily my co-workers have been in the travel industry FOREVER and have so much knowledge that it's ridiculous!
Now, my next task is to thoroughly clean my apartment. It's so gross! It needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. I'm hoping to work on it a little bit at a time throughout the month of August. Hmmm, 31 days to clean my apartment. Sounds doable, right?!
Anyway, that's it for today. Things are good!

I just wanted to post this blog so I could share the picture. We went on a walk on a new trail this evening. The trail was beautiful. And about 2 minutes in, we saw this...
I have never seen anything like this in the wild. It was so pretty!
Anyway, the walk about kicked my hiney. It was just a bit over 5 miles. We finished in about an hour and a half. Not bad considering how out of shape I am!
I hope everyone had a great day!
