This month has really had it's ups and downs. A test of my commitment to myself and my goals. August is summer vacation in Japan. At school, I have no students. I'm bored, and for the first time I realized that when I'm bored, I look for a snack. Good realization. Now I'm working on not snacking.
Another realization while watching a show at night with my husband. I want to night snack. I want to snack in front of the TV. This is something that really has sabotaged me these past few weeks. From now, I am going to try to focus on eating during my meals and not conditioning myself to eat a night in front of the tube.
On a more exciting note, so far I have lost 18 lbs. I swam in the ocean on a beach in Japan and I watched fireworks for a festival. Doing all of these amazing things has made me realize that life is full of temptations. It's easier to grab some festival food than to bring a healthy option. As they say, if it was easy, everyone would do it.
I'm worth it, you're worth it.
