Officially in my 3rd Stall

And... its all my fault.  Lets keep it real, since coming back from New Orleans I have been on a complete nose-dive of bad choices.  Oh such a slippery slope.  I stopped logging all of my food in MyFitnessPal - so technically, I have no idea what calories or protein amounts I am consuming.  Add in... water intake sucks!  Which has effected my pooping cycles.  Yeah... I've been a bad girl!  And I even stopped with my vitamins... and of course I haven't started working out yet.  Man I suck at this.

I got down to 187.2 lbs. about 2 weeks ago... and I've been going up/down within 2 lbs. since.  Here is my weigh-in from this past Saturday.

I have decided I have to stop the madness or I will have wasted another shot at this weight loss thing and I want to keep pressing forward in reaching my 1st goal of being 157 lbs.

So first things first...... charging my FitBit back up.  I will be wearing that again, all the time.  I really need to work on getting more sleep time in - bad habit since the trip of staying up until midnight or after and then trying to recover my sleep by taking naps or doing nothing on the weekends.  I hate the feeling of being tired.

Next step....... log all food.  I need to.  I have to make myself accountable, its the only way I will know what I am putting in my body (Duh!).   Which means, also making better food choices... no more fast food - yes, I've had some McDonald's chicken nuggets or chicken tenders from Raising Canes or eating out at other restaurants.  I may not each much... but I know ultimately, not good food choices.  Grocery shopping weekly again - meal prepping again.  Plus, I found out my kids really love cheese sticks - which I do too (one of my go-to's).  And they love apple slices with peanut butter.  So I can also get them eating good things - we've been eating pizza rolls, corn dogs or taquitos (bad!)

Water........ get in at least 8 glasses a day.  I was so close and then I let it drop off.  Plus I've been drinking wine lately - almost a glass a night.  Not sure why either.  Not that its bad, but I want to do better with my water and if I have room for wine later - okay.  Lol.

And finally.... begin exercising.  I'm taking Tracey's suggestion and look at the class schedule and actually schedule it into my own - it will remind me and well, then no more excuses on forgetting, etc.  This Friday, I plan on paying for 4 personal trainer sessions too.  First class starts tonight..... Zumba here I come!  And they have another on Wednesday evenings.

So yeah............ thats whats going on.  Wish me luck on getting back on track.  I have 30 lbs. to get to my official weight goal.  I'd like to be able to adjust that to lower... but its time for me to tackle that beast first.
