Things are much better than my last blog post. I am so grateful for the support I find here on Spark. I don't think I would be in as good of a place emotionally, physically, and psychologically without it.
DH and I finally sat down yesterday and had a talk about where we are at, where we are going, and what control we have over plans now. I feel a lot better because just talking about it was really all I was asking for. No babies yet- but I finish school in a few months, and then we will talk about in indepth a little bit more.
Why does tracking food have to be so hard? I saw from my parents trip out here that if I have been tracking for about 2 months consistently and I fall behind- I make it about 4-5 days of eating well, watching portions, and feeling full. Then it all slides out the window. So, tracking is essential for me and I know the only way I am going to make progress is if I can keep it up. Over the past three years, I have gotten more consistent- but not consistent enough to keep the momentum going.
This week, I guess a bunch of new people I know through my workout buddy are going to be coming up to the gym- if there are a lot of us going, then it will be tough to make excuses! I plan to make it 5 days this week. I am going to redo Week 2 of the Spark Rookie Running plan since I only made it two days out of three last week.
Alright- made dinner. I made a good choice though- overate on a biscuit (my roommate made them almost twice the size I normally do), so I put the wine I was drinking back instead of finishing the whole glass. That brought me back down to my calorie limit. And I portioned everything out after we cooked it- instead of just eating heaing spoonfuls (we had made tuna casserole).
