Sheesh! I didn't realize it had been this long since my last post! Well here goes. The truth is I haven't been a very good blogger lately because I haven't been a very good eater. I have not gained any weight but been maintaining. I DID lose all the vacation weight gain though! I just have been having a hard time with the motivation thing. Nothing is working. Plus we've had so many things going on, which have been my excuses for having naughty meals. So I've decided to once again mentally prepare myself for another strict 8 week segment of healthy eating and exercise AFTER we get back from Napa! This has always worked for me in the past so I'm hoping it will work again. That and the swimsuit I found in my drawer that I have never worn and would really really love to wear in Cancun this June! I am going to hang it up above my scale so I can see it every morning and hope that it works some magic on my brain :)

Yay! First day since vacation I haven't had an uncontrollable urge to binge! I might finally be getting back on track. Or maybe it's because I didn't leave the house and temptation never crossed my path. Either way.....YAY! I spent my day cleaning and playing with my babies :) I'm really going to focus this week on losing 2lbs, even if the hubby decides to have a bad day. I WILL NOT JOIN HIM! 4 more weeks till Napa so maybe I can lose my final 2lbs of vacation weight and 6 more? Game on!

This is my mantra for the day. I am going to get back on track for success. No more ice cream! It's early but so far I am on track! Healthy breakfast, been doing some housework, playing with my babies. Now time to run some errands and stay away from bad snacks while out and about! I will NOT get a mocha coconut frappuchino OR a chocolate chip cookie from starbucks! I WILL get a zero calorie iced passion tea! Every time I feel tempted I need to remember to look at my babies and think about being a healthy active mama for them! They deserve it and I owe it to them and myself!

All I seem to want to do lately is snack all day long. Nothing bad like fast food or cookies but I can't seem to stay out of the pantry or refrigerator. Not sure why but it doesn't help me reach my weekly goals. I feel like I have lost the momentum I had going before vacation. And I guess some of my motivation as well. I still have 2lbs of vacation weight to go. I'm a tad disappointed in myself for not having lost all of it already. I'm not in a rush or anything, I want to continue to lose at a slow healthy pace but sheesh! I just need to get back on track already!

So it seems I opened a flood gate of naughty snacking when I gave in and had that sundae on Sunday. (ha ha that sounds funny!) Not only did I have that bad day, then as previously reported we had pizza last night. And Ben & Jerry's. And now today I had a full flavor, full fat mocha coconut frappuchino AND chocolate chip cookie. WTF is wrong with me?!?! This crap needs to STOP. No more bad snacks. I think it's time to get the strict frame of mind back on track. It seems to be the only way for me to be successful. No more blaming the hubs or "that time of month"! I didn't have to eat the pizza or ice cream or Starbucks. I honestly wasn't even craving any of it. It was just there. I know I can do this, I've done it before. I need to keep making my small goals and keeping them in the front of my mind. NAPA TRIP! NAPA TRIP! C'mon Clark get with it :)

I'm thinking that the hubs is not a good influence lately. He called on his break today to tell me that he ate delicious bad food so he's picking up pizza for dinner tonight. And I said OK??!!?? Where did my willpower formerly made of steel go?? I don't really even want pizza but I know I will eat it. Aaarrrggghhh!
Well pooh! I was naughty last night! But I'm not mad at myself for it. Know why? Cause it's not the end of the world. I know that it's just a minor slip and I am right back on track today :) I had a healthy breakfast and lunch and then came the triple berry sundae at Sam's Club. So I figured might as well have a dinner I'll really enjoy along with that and had Chili's big mouth bites. I enjoyed every bite too. I deserve a treat every now and then and as long as I am good 99% of the time I can have them.
