Wow, it’s June, already. I really don’t think I am going to make my weight goal for the end of the quarter. Being so sick for most of April, it took me until the last week and a half of May to feel “back in the groove”.

I have been lurking here on SP, reading blogs, and message board postings. I have been inconsistent in my food tracking, (Cookie? What Cookie?) making meal choices that were not the best, and not being honest with myself about it. When I was able to start eating and exercising again, I got on the scale and cried. I just felt so defeated; I had gained so much back. Time to pull up my big girl panties, quit whining and just do what I know I need to:

1. Be honest with my food tracking. “If you bite it, write it.”
2. “Water, water, everywhere,” I really need to drink (Sorry, Samuel Taylor Coleridge).
3. Ride my bike at least three times a week for a total of 220 minutes. If I can do more, even better.

I have also decided to boycott the scale. It has just been making me crazy, so I am not going to get on it again until July 1st.

    As a fan of the "ditch the scale" method (too much of a mind trip!) I think that part of your plan is brilliant. emoticon
    You are not alone. I got super busy and there went the fitness. emoticon
    Then it was poor food choices... then I went on vacation... you get the picture!
    So it is back in the saddle for me, too! Exercise! Water! Track that food!!
