Still here, Still breathing

It's been over 3 weeks since my son started school and I thought my schedule would become less hectic. Wrong! I haven't had much time to post or read any of your blogs. And unfortunately I haven't made the effort to track my food. I felt so good with my weight loss and losing the inches I got cocky and stopped tracking. And when you stop tracking, you start to lose awareness of what you eat.

Surprisingly, I haven't gained any weight. I believe it's because I've still been able to work out at the gym, though I have only been going 3 days a week. But, when I'm in the gym I make it count and work out for almost 2 hours each time. Basically, I've been working out to eat which isn't a good thing.

Today I'm starting fresh. I'm going back to my simple plan of living a healthier lifestyle.

1. Tracking my food intake
2. Drinking lots of water
3. Exercising daily - except Sundays
4. Not eating past 7pm - No more munching in front of the TV!
5. Portion Control

A simple plan that I know I can stay on. I have only 25 more pounds to go & I'm at goal weight! I know I can do it! I'm meeting with some old friends in two weeks and I want to feel good when I see them. Today is a new day to start fresh!

You'll surely make it to goal with a plan like this.

So glad to see you back again. I missed you.

Good to hear from you H.K! I honestly think it is good to take some time to adjust to the new low and when you are ready to continue you will! Congrats on maintaining the loss. :-)

We missed you!! So glad to have you back!

I think it's awesome that you were able to maintain the weight loss while you were 'gone'!!
