Whoops, got busy and didn't blog! A friend reminded me so here I am!!!

Ugh, the business trip isn't going as planned. I'm eating well, but working so much I'm not tracking food. Drinking too much diet pop, which I never drink at home. I did get to the "fast food" point today but actually got a grilled chicken sandwich and fries. Not as bad as it could be, so I need to be proud of that.

HOWEVER...two things happened today that really made me think. First, I wore a skirt. And caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. Ugh. Then, I was sent this pic of me and my niece walking our Build-A-Bear dogs on roller skates through the mall.

Ugh. There is just no other thing to say. I feel like $%)€6. It feels like I am constantly, constantly on a diet and yet I continue to gain weight.

That saying "Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity" really applies to me.

I am doing the same effing thing over and over: staying on track for a day and slipping for two. Back on track for a day, and slipping for 3. Being on track for a week then going on a trip. I'm sick of it. I have to stop this. I just don't know what to do.

I mean I do: get up tomorrow, drink my water, exercise, track my food and eat within my calorie guidelines. BUT HOW DO I ACTUALLY DO THAT???

    You have to decide that you are going to do it. You have to decide that being healthy feels better than the fast food, feels better than being diabetic and feels better than being unhealthy. You have to decide that being succesful feels better than failing.... and believe it. You have to allow yourself to succeed. Remeber how horrible it felt to hear your doctor tell you that you are pre-diabetic, to see this photograph and to feel bad about yourself whenever you do something counter to that which you know you should be doing and decide never to feel that bad again....

    Here's one thing I think you should do (take it or leave it! LOL): figure out a specific plan for working out while you are traveling. Do you take a laptop? Make a plan to spend some time working out with a DVD or with the SparkPeople work outs. I know you are busy busy when you travel, but SparkPeople has some shorter work outs!

    I know you can do this! I have FAITH in you!
