I'm going to get back to planning & eating only what's on the plan. I've been "winging it" & know that I'm not eating right. I'm kind of done with this way of eating (Wendy, we'll need to talk about maintenance soon--I'll email you). I just want to enjoy the rest of the summer. I'm going to Kansas City a week after we get back from Maine (my brother & his girl friend had a little boy yesterday & I'm going to see him).
Anyway, I'm going to do it right until we go to Maine. I'm hoping to drop 2 lbs by then. I'm hovering at 148-150. That's 5 to 10 lbs more than I had wanted to be by now but...I have zero self-control. No, that's not entirely true.
I've was sick for almost the entire month of June & I've been sort of depressed with the decision that we made for John to take this job. I don't like it. I don't want to move. I don't think this commute is going to be good for us. He's going to be tired & not want to do anything. The increase in salary would be FANTASTIC if he were not spending the entire increase on gas; close to $1000/month.
That depression has put me into a state of zero motivation where food planning is concerned.
That all ends today.
I've dragged out my old plan & am putting it into action. I've decided that I cannot let this interfere with my goals. I'm going to throw myself into it & take care of myself for a couple of weeks.
My workouts have been on track. I'm getting all of my cardio in. I've even taken 2 days at work. My lack of planning is what is keeping me from hitting my goal.
The shape my body has taken on over the last 7 months is very pleasing to me. I do want to change some more. I know that it's all about diet at this point.
Back on track & ready to lose.
