I am on the right path with my eating again. I had several days this past week, were I went over my calorie range limit big time. I know when I went to my mil's family reunion, I should have eaten a salad or veggies before going. Then I would have been full and only eaten a little bit of the food there. That started my week of over indulging! Then I went to school on Tuesday and they provided us Subway for lunch and cake for dessert. So naturally I had to have a piece of cake with my lunch. Then I ate another piece before my friend and I left work that afternoon. On Wednesday, they had cookies in the teacher's work room. So I just had to sample 3 of them at lunch time and 3 after school. Then I came home and had a piece of birthday cake with the next door neighbor's great granddaughter. So I have really overeaten in the last couple of days since last Sunday. Yesterday and today were the first two days that I have been back on track. I gained a pound this past week and I know why. So I am going to move forward and do better tracking my food in coming days, weeks and months. I really want to reach my goal weight by my 40th birthday next May. I know that I have lost 15 pounds since the end of May 2012. So I just need to watch what I put in my mouth, track every bite and stay away from sweets at certain times of the month when I get stressed, etc. I also will continue to workout five to six days a week anywhere from 30 minutes to 60 minutes a session. I have started to do some ST so I can tone up my arms and not have the flabby arms going anymore. LOL So I here now delcare that I am swearing off sweets for awhile and going to eat fruits, veggies or a salad before going to family reunions, family get togethers, parties or banquets where I know there is not going to be any healthy food. I want to take off the pounds and not put them back on. I have felt so much better since I started to eat healthier and workout again. I am more active, get more things accomplished at school, sleep better and don't feel like a negative person anymore. I hope the next nine months are a great lifestyle changing journey for me. If I don't reach my goal weight by my 40th birthday, I won't be upset. Just hope to be thinner and trimmer than I am now!
