I will try #1. I don't think I did it for Friday, but no way to track. I might have. Probably not ;)
Saturday: one of my meals I couldn't track, but I think I was well within my calorie range, since I was hungry part of the day!
Sunday: Tracked as much as possible. blogged about why I couldn't.

Kept my calories just below the max I allow myself. I was very tempted last night but had nothing in the house and with 12" of new snow on the ground, wasn't going to go out.

My five words are:
Finish - this journey successful, finish mindless eating, finish weight gain!
Endure - no matter how tired I get, push through the workouts to the end! no matter how the end looks far, stick to my goals!
Drive - energy is in my mind
Act - never lie on the bed, sofa, do something!
Enjoy - enjoy the journey.. make it fun not hard! Will make the journey easier!

5. Stop (as in stop eating!)

Okay here are my five words:

Positive
Can Do
Possibilities
Forgiveness
Try

Tracy G

Be Patient, yet persistent. Don't expect results overnight. Take it one step at a time. Let nothing stop you! You will get where you want to go.

Attitudes are contagious. Is yours worth catching?

With every decision you make and with every action you take, you can make your life healthier and brighter!
