Preparation Is Key

I've said it before. I remind myself constantly. Yet I am one of the most unprepared people in this land of "have it together, Man."

This past week I knew I had to be prepared and of course, getting to the grocery store was impossible. Yes I did have the case of "I'll do it later," but I never gave it a second thought.

New week has started and I am determined to be up an about on Sunday morning to get my groceries for the week. CHECK!

I'm determined to chop and cut fruits and veggies here in a bit.

And of course spend some time house cleaning.

Hmmm, maybe.

Off I go to spend some quality time with family.

It's A Start

Trust in myself.

I'm motivated.

I'm drinking my water.

I'm eating breakfast.

I'm eating salads at work.

I'm keeping myself accountable.



A little obnoxious, but I can't help it. I feel better. Not fantastic yet, but I do feel better. I have ways to go, but it's nice to see the scale finally go down. It's not drastic either, small and slow, but it's still positive for me. Finally looking at the positive side of this journey. I've been a downer for way to long.

Simple Changes

I am on a roll!

The last soda drink I officially had was on the 1st of January. I'll admit there is one in my fridge for the "just in case", but I haven't felt the need. I know, I know... it's only been 4 days, but soda is major addiction and passing on a sip is great news for me. Replacement beverage H2O. First day was torture, but I didn't give in. Second day better. Third day, wanting to drink my water. Fourth day, trying to get in my 68 ounces of water for the day.

Headed to work on January 2, I stopped by the grocery store and loaded on salad supplies. My lunch has consisted of salads, another plus. If you know our lunch crew, we are usually trying to decide who to send to bring back some fast food. Group lunch support has been a great success, because us, girls are pulling out the get healthy card and I for one am appreciating it!

My morning obstacle has been gulping coffee like a monster and avoiding breakfast. I have limited my morning coffee to one cup and focusing on getting breakfast in me. I have stored my fridge with easy things to blend and heat before heading out the door.

I thought this was mind worthy...
