No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Well yesterday I weighed in,and for August I have lost 5 lbs which means I am on track perfectly for losing 10 lbs for the month. It feels great to make progress, but I'll tell you, it is hard earned progress. I exercise most every day and I am keeping myself to a very healthy diet. I sleep well at night because I'm so tired
Today I have felt tired and frustrated all day. But I think I figured out a couple of reasons--
1. no coffee this morning--I usually have 1 cup (or 2).
2. Many pressures trying to help my son get student loans, develop a budget and find a reasonably priced/ reliable car for him to buy
3. Helping son #2 prepare for another college visit
4. and this is the biggie, I think--I spent a long time today making goodies for a bake sale for my kids' teen group at church--we did chocolate covered pretzels, some with peanut butter, too. (This would be a big temptation for me, so I think resisting and pushing through it made me feel a bit bonkers in the brain!) I should have chosen to do something I don't love to eat!
So tomorrow we are off to another college visit--this one is only 3 1/2 hours drive away instead of 10. My husband took the day off work to go, too. So the eating plan is eat breakfast before we leave at 6:30am, drive to the college, they provide lunch (a big??? I guess I just have to be very conscious of portions--I'm big into liking to control my eating situations and this is out of my hands). Dinner will be Subway on the way home--I can always get a nice turkey/ham on whole wheat and be safe with that. Probably will get in a good walk on campus.
Then Saturday I work the BAKE SALE...ugh! Why do I agree to do these things??????
