Hi friends...ONE week until I'm flying off to Turks & Caicos!!!

Thank you all for your comments on my last blog, seriously I'm not a chef, you're making me blush. I just like food and flavor.

So, as CHEMCHIC graciously pointed out, with the math and all, I really didn't gain 4lbs. I know this, however, I was retaining water and probably other toxins from not eating healthy. It really is amazing what a difference that can make. I know I didn't gain inches or "legit" pounds overnight but I really can tell a difference in my body without even weighing myself that I'm retaining. I just look and feel icky. Anyways, I have had FOUR straight days of eating well and exercising daily. I know, it's only four, that's really not even a streak, but for me it's the magic number when I start to lose motivation, which usually coincides with the weekend. I weighed myself, already feeling better, and guess what, I "lost" that four lbs. I didn't track it in Spark cause ya'll would think I'm doing it unhealthy if it read I lost four lbs. But I'm not, check my trackers!

Anyway, now is the time when I'm feeling good, feeling on track, that I really have to stop myself from getting into the mindset of oh, but I can "afford" to cheat a little. NO! I need to keep up this momentum, if I'm doing well I can do even better. One week til I wear a bikini! This weekend will be good for me, the last few have involved friends and/or going out a lot and this weekend I'll have nothing to do but laundry and packing lol. joy.

Happy Friday all!

    You go ahead and track whatever the scale says, it's not our place to judge. I've have big fluctuations too and water weight makes a huge difference to that.

Write a list of 10 reasons why you CAN'T afford to lose your motivation today. Read it over again every morning. Good luck.

    I completely understand the "I can afford to" mindset. It's really hard to break that cycle of well, I worked really hard and I've behaved so I'm going to have that cookie, glass of wine, skip a workout, etc. Sometimes it'll just be the once and I go right back on track; other times it's the beginning of a slippery slope.

Good luck and stay focused!
