Happy First Day of March!

Friday, March 01, 2013

Wow, I can't believe it is March already! This year is flying by!

It's been a couple of weeks since my last update post... We had out of town guests for 2 weeks, two different sets of people, with one day in between. Needless to say, things were crazy! Luckily, we were pretty active those two weeks, bike rides and lots of walking. I watched my food for usually two meals a day, and just went with the flow for whichever meal we ate out each day. Surprisingly, I didn't gain weight! Whew! I think I have found my "Vacation" balance.

Getting back to tracking everyday and into my regular workout routine was tough, but I am just about there. I've got food down, but still getting some greasy food cravings (I am not giving in!) and am still a little slow with my cardio, but I figure it will be just a few days and I will feel back to my normal energy level.

I have also been fighting a cold and taking medication that is affecting my energy level, but the cold seems to be just about gone, and I only have a few days left of the medication.

I have had a tough time with rewarding myself. When I get excited about a health goal that I met, I usually want to celebrate with a greasy pizza or a juicy burger. So, I have set up this non-food reward system for this part of my journey:

Weight Goal & Reward
159.9 - new pair of shoes (fun, not workout)
154.9 - highlights & hair cut
149.9 - new workout outfit (top, pants, bra)
145 - whole new outfit

I will not do any of these things until I actually meet my goals, so that they actually mean something.

I want to thank all the SparkPeople Community for helping to keep me motivated and holding me responsible to sticking to my goals!
