The starting line...

Thursday, September 15, 2011

So...this week I meant to blog at least 4 days about the following topics:

1. C25K - running while sick and congested
2. Worrying about other people staring at you all the time
3. Tracking my food and why my lazy arse just doesn't do it.
4. Traveling and eating out.

Instead I didn't blog at all. I have been doing the bare minimum again. Maybe.? I mean I'm exercising, but not tracking it or my food. I'm eating healthier, but have no ideas what calories I'm consuming. I'm running daily, but have no clue how far I'm actually going.

I can't imagine I'll make a lot of progress if I keep up the status quo. On the flip side I did a mid week weigh in and went from 256 to I'm doing something right...but will that stick until Monday and my "official weigh in?"

Not if I have a crazy weekend in "do what you want" land.

So...taking inspiration from my Sparkfriend REBECCA926 I will be making a plan...or firming up the one I've got.

emoticon Making a plan for the weekend which includes a night of beer pong and that ALWAYS means high caloric intake. (You'd think I was in college instead of in my 30s. HA!) AND making a plan for next week which includes an overnight trip to Prague and an overnight trip to Munich for Octoberfest.

Yes, I have three major events that are recipes for disaster when it comes to eating healthy and smart and getting in my exercise.

How badly do you think I want to keep those 3 pounds OFF?

  Eating healthier and RUNNING, for gosh sakes, is NOT THE BARE MINIMUM.

Give yourself plenty of credit here.

Let's not forget that I work on my computer and don't have a toddler to keep up with, so tracking isn't exactly hard for me. emoticon

That said, the tracking really makes a huge difference. Being able to SEE where you're doing well and what needs work is extremely helpful.

As for those trips next week, I've got the same issue! I'm going to Cali for a food and wine conference, soooooooo... I am CHALLENGING you to write a blog about how you will handle those trips to Prague and Munich.

Will you be staying active? Watching the bready stuff? Getting a run in before you head out of town?

    You're only 3 lbs away from your first goal. I read the things that you want to do. It is a great list. You can take inspiration from what you really want out of life. You CAN keep those 3 lbs off.
