You can always tell when I've fallen off the wagon when I don't do a blog!!!

Friday I didn't get on Sparkcoach (I logged my food and my very short last minute 10 minute workout) but I went a little crazy with my eating then Saturday I went a lot crazy and had over 3,000 calories... I don't really know what happened. I babysat Friday night and make rainbow cookies and pizza... oh wait I remember! It started with not doing my workout and Sparkcoach that morning then going grocery shopping, and I planned it my awesome steak salad from subway but then my daughter saw Long John Silvers and wanted fish... at first I was like are you sure? And of course she was so I thought we could just share a meal... 600 calories later... that was my first booboo... but then I just was like whatever I'll start over tomorrow... I did make some really good choices this weekend but I stopped current tracking and just wrote it all down after I was done.

But today!!! Even though it's late I've done great!!! I was very determined to make good healthy choices and I have a goal of getting 7 days in a row of meeting all my nutrition recommendations. It's small but lately I've been having trouble even getting 7 days in a row!!! So I'm excited about that! I also have a goal of 30 days in a row of 10 minutes or more exercise. So far I'm 9 days in a row!!!

I also went swimming today! A lot of fun, by the end of the day both babies didn't want to leave, even my son who's not a huge fan of swimming, I even got a few laps in and a sun burn!!! Not too bad though, I did enjoy the time with my family! I remember one of my fondest memories was swimming with my step dad, and it always made me sad my mom never swam with us, so I make it a point for all of us to swim together and we had a blast!!!

Focus on the feeling you get after a really great workout. It always always feels good when it's over!
This is why mornings are the best time for me to do this... because I'm pooped! I can't even think. But right now I feel great and fit after my swim. I have a strapless bathing suit now! I used to never get in the pool without a shirt! But it's so cute, it's a one piece, black with white polka dots. and I wasn't uncomfortable at all to be honest! I'm going to look better and better with every workout I do!!!

Well I think that's all for today!!
I gotta have one tomorrow so I'll stay on track and accountable!!!

Have you struggled wtih stress or anxiety realated to your weight loss program or weigh-ins?
Have I ever!!! I stopped weighing in because I would have a great week and be motivated and get everything done but then I'd have gained weight and I was like, it's not worth it! I'd even get stressed out and eat more just because I knew a weigh in was coming up! Or I'd do the opposite and fast then weigh in day have whatever I wanted! I wasn't balanced! I just want to make healthy food choices, share my daily journey to stay accountable, spend time with God daily, and stay active, get off the couch and do something more often than not! I just want balance!

    I just started swimming at the gym and I'm 5'1, 198 lbs. I put the swimming suit on, looked in the mirror, and said...oh, screw it, lol. I decided it's just a matter of time until I have to get a smaller suit and until then, it's not like my giant shirt and shorts are hiding anything, lol.
    I agree with the balance issue. I think that's why so many of us are either 100% on the wagon, or 100% off. We just can't find that balance. Even on a daily basis, I want to be able to go to the gym after work without thinking about how late it'll be before I get home, that the dogs will have to wait another hour to be let out, that I won't eat dinner until super late, etc...But the feeling of NOT going is just as bad. I look at other people working out and they look so relaxed...but I'm sure they are also thinking of the million other things they "should" be doing. What I'm working on is learning the understand that I deserve to be fit and healthy and I deserve to take the time to get there. Everything else can wait: the dishes, dinner, the laundry, etc.
    Great blog!
