It’s All In The Journey

You know when you go a on a trip, a flight for example you’re so busy getting everything together. You’re busy packing your suitcase, then you have to pack a carry-on bag to keep yourself entertained during the flight (or least I do) and then you have to hustle and bustle your way to the the airport, through the airport routine and then FINALLY you are seated in your assigned seat. And once you are comfortable and situated you have that moment of , “What now?”  That’s where I am.

What now? I reached a point in this 6 month throw down to where I know I’m doing what I’m suppose to be doing. Such as………..

  • Logging every single calorie I eat
  • Eating at least 1680 calories based on my RMR. 
  • Drinking my 2 liters of water a day
  • Taking my vitamins
  • Daily hour long cardio sessions
  • Getting in my 2680 calories via BodyMedia 
I’m doing what I set out to do. I’ve got my routine down and now that I’m comfortable and situated into what I need and want to do I can’t help but be a little anxious. I feel like I should be doing more. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining one bit but I do find I’m a bit anxious some days because up until this point I’ve been so busy preparing and planning. 
Meanwhile, this has been a learning week based off my food journal. What have I learned? Well…………
1.  The weeks I’ve had really good numbers on the scale I did not eat past dinner. I went to bed a little hungry.
2. The weeks I’ve had really good numbers I cut the carbs after 12 p.m.  I had veggies but no bread, crackers, etc. past lunch.  
3.  Eating out more than once a week will kill my numbers!  I ate out Friday night, Saturday (yes , the whole day was outside the house and not a packed meal either!), and Sunday lunch. I know without a doubt my weigh in will be not good tomorrow because all week my numbers on the scale have been HORRIBLE.
Yes, I weigh daily. It helps me stay mentally on track. That is the only time I will ever discuss that, please I know what they say but it’s not up for discussion. Love you!  

At least now  I know. Adjust and do better.  I know May 11th is going to be a good day!  Till next time, Cheers!
