Be honest with myself? I'm sucking miserably. I suck at fitness, I do my ST for T/H and that is it. I barely do any other fitness. I eat like a dammnn cookie monster. I hardly have veggies. I love chocolate. Freaking.Love.Chocolate. And snacks. I could eat them all of the time. Due to my schedule I don't cook dinner anymore and DH likes to eat delicious things (ie: italian sausage hoagies with macaroni salad). Delicious, and my entire days worth of cals in one meal.
I've got to change. I've got to TRY. I've got to not be this girl.

    you don't suck. It's difficult to find something that works when life comes in the way. Wishing you good stats for the coming period!

    I hear you! I emoticon chocolate and it is SO hard for me to eat it in moderation! I have switched over to healthier dark chocolate and let myself have a tiny bit pretty regularly. I find that helps me not crave it quite so badly and it's easier to stop at just a little.

    Keep working and you will find what works best for you! You have great support on the Gecko team so use them when you need that extra push to make the right choices.

    Eat a lot of good things and a little of not so good things. I eat my chocolate as dark choc in the morning 1-2 pieces before lunch (if I want any at all). If there is macaroni going I eat a small amount with lots of protein.

    You can do this--- tracking is great--- try to adjust a small thing one at a time and you'll notice a huge difference.

    Research the articles to see how the food works and educate yourself. Knowledge is power!!!

    Go for it.

    Maybe it would help to think about what you need to ADD to your diet. Figure out the portions of fruits/veggies/whole grains you need each day and have them prepared and handy. Once you fill up on the foods you need, there's less room for the stuff you "want." I wish you the best!
