Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

I'm Finding Success Is Related To The Desire

Let's just say I fell off the wagon for a few days. It would have been ok, if I'd eaten sweets in moderation. And honestly, I won't even type here just how much sugar I've had the last few days over the holiday weekend. The reality is that it was a choice, and I CHOSE to eat the ridiculously huge amounts of sugar. I wasn't stressed. I wasn't eating from boredom or sadness or happiness. This wasn't an emotional eating binge. It was really just that I wanted the sugar. I chose to eat it, and then once I did, I continued to eat it.

And now I have another choice. I can beat myself up over and over, but what's done is done. I can throw in the towel, and just say forget it. Or I can begin again. I'm choosing the last option and beginning again.

I really do want to get healthier, and I would oh so love to be able to loose my gut (or some of it). And I know that sugar is a drug, an addiction and a pleasure of mine. But I also need to remind myself that I finished a marathon. And for me to finish that it meant that I wanted it, and I wanted it bad. And I know that for me to succeed with eating healthier, that if my desire is strong, that I can have this too.

It's time to swap out processed sugar for some of nature's sweetness. 


I've been using MyFitnessPal to try to track my food (most of the time). But this week, I've also decided to make a meal plan and plan my meals for the week. I still have a few meals that are empty slots, so I need to go back and fill those in. But I'm hoping that if I plan (within reason) my meals for the week that it will possibly be easier to make wiser choices. I'll let you know how it works out.

    1. Yep.. same here.. so tomorrow will be back to KEEPING IT OUT OF THE HOUSE and going to fruit (or an ounce of dark chocolate). I think if I could make it a month or so I'd be ok. But I seem to make it a few days and then fall back to old habits.
