Well Tuesday, 1/28/14, I started tracking my food again and I did great this week! Last night was rough but we didn't order out. I did eat too many tuna sliders the boyfriend made and lost count and ummmmm....didn't track (but he didn't measure nothing either.) But we love to eat out, so not eating out is a plus!! My goal is to minimize the eating out, continue tracking my food, and start exercising more.

The exercise is a little tougher b/c during the week nights the boyfriend has class afterwork and it's just me and the baby. So by the time he comes home, some nights that's like 11pm to be honest with you I am sleep. And my son is working on being independent, so there were times this week I tried to put him in his activity center or jumperoo so he can entertain himself and he didn't want to cooperate. So until that gym opens, I am just going with the flow.

Anyway, I really started giving things some thought and I realized how much effort it takes to workout and eat right. Like tracking my food was time consuming, but I made it happen. It wasn't THAT bad, you know? There are times we wonder why are we not losing weight, or we are saying damn I am not doing that bad, or but I am working out so hard.....the list goes on. I say tons of things like that to myself and wonder why. But I know it's all an excuse, I know I am not sitting there measuring every bit like I was before when I first joined spark. Even though I know it and learned so much on spark doesn't mean I don't need to refresh and do things the old way. Because if I was keeping it all in mind, I wouldn't of gained weight when I came back to work.

Well that's me babbling!! Today is February 1st and I m excited to start a new month doing good and feeling "light"...yes I feel light even though I don't look like from this past weeks tracking. Don't judge me, I feel good lol

    I remember very well when my kids were little and sometimes it was a challenge to get a shower much less workout. It is difficult when you a have a little one that needs so much attention. I commend you on working so hard to track your food and try to get your workouts in. You are doing awesome! Don't you love that light feeling you get when you are eating right and taking care of yourself. Others may not see it, but you know you are making progress. Keep up the great work and don't be too hard on yourself. You need to enjoy your time with your little one because it goes by so fast.
