It starts with a thought either your own or put there by an external source. Someone walks by you with pizza and you think man I love pizza, then you start thinking but I really love breakfast pizza...mmm breakfast pizza. Your shift at work is over you're on your way home...mmm breakfast pizza says a nagging voice in your head. You think well I could just get one slice at Casey's on the way home one slice won't be that bad...but I have been doing okay on my diet, no, no straight home you finally reason. You get home let the dogs out...but it's breakfast pizza says the voice again..mmm breakfast pizza, no I'm home that would involve a trip to the store, well I do need some face wash and I could get one that I could cook at home, no, no we know where that leads a whole pizza in the belly and the ensuing misery. Cereal it is, down goes the cereal and now...stomach still feels empty inside, do I have another bowl, how many bowls would it take to satisfy a craving for breakfast pizza. Reason takes over, go to the Casey's get one, ONE, slice. It is the only way that the monster seems willing to rest...mmm breakfast pizza. Keys in the ignition, on my way, getting the slice of guilty pleasure, yes I did it I ate it I enjoyed it, one slice, ONE only, it did tame the emptiness, but why can't I crave apples...mmm breakfast pizza. I did track it damage was actually minimal and salvageable, but these cravings have got to stop winning.

I can be very motivating, but sometimes the person that needs the motivating is me. I admit it I was a bit fried from marathon training (excuse), I have been going at it hard for a year diet and exercise so I deserve a break (excuse). I could sit here and write all the things I have done to talk myself out of a great diet and great exercise over the past couple weeks. But I am writing this to motivate one person right now (and if I drag a few others along welcome). It is obviously me that I am talking about, it is time to throw all those excuses by the wayside and get doing what I need to do to drop the rest of this weight. Yesterday I did legs, back and ab ripperX from the p90x series, and today again I will get in my workout with no excuses of being tired, working,burnout etc. The tape measure does not lie I have been slacking. Here's to day 2 of No Excuses workouts!

Normally this would seem like a good thing but it is definitely when I like to get off track, I don't get on the computer all that much. When I don't have to work I am more lax with the time schedule for my workouts, when I don't have to work it is easier to graze mindlessly. So this weekend I am scheduling times for my workout and not pulling the "oh I have all day to do it", I am portioning out my meals and having them in the fridge like I would if I were going to work, I am going to log in each day this weekend, not only so I can track but so I can just be here surrounded by healthy influences.

The gauntlet has been thrown. Track every morsel that goes into my body, even if it is not a healthy item. Create calorie deficits, by tracking get back to a clean eating lifestyle, because if it is on paper I know what is garbage and what is good! Started a team to help keep each other accountable : Honesty is the best policy is the name if anyone is interested. So far the team members have posted a comment to other team members just to check in "are we tracking, how did it go, and are we being honest even if it is a donut!" It will be a huge work in progress but it will help me with the most challenging aspect of my healthy lifestyle, I am a terrible overeater, a mindless, emotional chow hound. I can always exercise that has never been the issue, always the nutrition and as we all know a six pack is not made from doing crunches it is made in the kitchen!
