Challenge #13

Monday, June 24, 2013

Challenge #13- For the next 2 weeks I'm going to focus on just making healthy choices again. Funny thing is... sometimes when I just focus on making choices I eat within my calories guidelines without thinking about it and when I make a conscience effort to do so I tend to over eat. We are going on vacation at the end of the week so my goal is to just not gain when I weigh in 2 weeks for today.

On a side note I keep running into the same obstacles over and over on my weight loss journey. So I would like to share them to help me to be honest with myself.

Have a big sweet tooth
Don't drink water throughout the day
Snack too much in afternoons and not always on healthy foods
Don't eat enough fruits and vegetables
Don't workout consistently
Eat too many carbs and not enough fiber

These are all things I need to address and work on after vacation. I have lost 33 pounds since my weight loss journey started 11 months ago when my son was born. I am proud of my progress but I think I would have achieved more if I would have been more consistent. I still have 7 pounds of baby weight to loss. We are having a family picture taken when Zachary turns 1 years old and I want to like how I look in it.
