So I have this goal to blog 3 times a week. The big thing is to check in with the people (possibly imaginary) that read this blog so they know I'm still alive, kicking and doing the things I promised I would do to be healthier.
I wanted to try to have a theme for every blog that was interesting, thought-provoking and made you open your mind to new ideas. But I talk about the same stuff everyone else does so until I let my imagination loose I suppose that's not going to happen.
I'm a bit tired today so back to the point. It is Wednesday. The scale says I'm up a bit but I'm not worried. That's normal for me a lot of times and yesterday I ate a bit more junk than I normally do. Today, I am back on track. The big thing is money. If I have it, I will spend it and never on anything wise. So I took my change from yesterday and put it in my oldest daughter's piggy bank. Her bank is quite bare and the youngest is a gozillionaire so I thought that was fair. I packed my breakfast and lunch (as I do everyday.) Yesterday was heavier so I stuck with fruit for breakfast and I'm having leftover fish tacos for lunch (grilled tilapia--yummy, yummy!)
Even though I ate more junk than normal, I still tracked it all and I still didn't go over my calories for the day. I'm not really sure how that works.
And I'm still really proud of myself for being so honest. That's a big deal to me. I'm super good at lying to myself so it's refreshing to see that I can be honest and not only will the world not fall down around my ears but I'll still lose weight!
Hope everyone is having a great week, doing the things that makes life fun and worthwhile and if you're having a hard time for whatever reason keep your chin up! It will get better, I promise!
