Tough day.....tracked my food, but was over my calories. Forgot I was going out for dinner and did not plan well. Sometimes eating out for me, right now is not a treat. Even if you choose salad, you can go over your calorie allotment. And the sodium....they must just load it up on everything. I feel so bloated!!!
Did get my exercise in, and most of my water. Of course I did not blog yesterday. I worked all day and then went to my class until 10 pm. So when I got home, I was pooped!!!
Today, Day 3 is jammed again. I need to get our tax stuff together this morning then we are getting them done at 1pm. Then it's off to the grocery store, dinner out, again with friends....ACK!!!!' Then I'm going to a prayer event at our church from 7pm to 11pm. Of course there will be food and candy there.....for some reason our church LOVES candy!!!!!
So here's my plan. I'm fueling my body with good food all day and I will eat some protein before I go to dinner and then have a salad. And then for tonight. Should they have breakfast items, which they usually do. I'll have some eggs. And if they don't I'll drink a protein drink. And I WILL be drinking a ton of water all day and night.
Eating events are tough and it seems when I'm trying to focus. I get invited to them....lots of them. I guess it comes down to planning and focus.
Wish me luck!!!!
How do you set yourself up for success when faced with social eating events?
Have a fit day!!!!

Success! I got all of my goals done today!! Recorded my food, a little above my amount needed for the day. Ran 4.1 miles, got my water in, reached 10,000 plus steps, weighed and got my measurements. And I had a great attitude!!!
- Record food - stay under allotted calories,
- Drink water
- Run 3.1 miles
- Get to bed on time
I am really goal oriented....but the goals need to be listed, otherwise I forget what I'm supposed to do.
In the beginning of my journey I had great success. I lost a lot of weight, I was focused and I had fun. I really did not stress about the results. I just did what I was supposed to do and it worked. I've been trying to get back to those basics.
The key for me.....is to not stress about what isn't happening, but to focus on what I'm supposed to do. And really just do it even if I don't feel like it.....every day....consistently and with a great attitude!!!
So that's what I did today. At 4:30am, I got up and ran. Did not feel like doing it, but I did it anyway. Really did not have time to record my food or blog, but I did it anyway. For me that is the key. I just need to do it!!!
How about you. Are you struggling to get it together? Just set you plan and make it happen!!! You can do it!!!!
Have a fit day!!!
