This past week I stopped tracking, thinking I was getting a bit stressed over having to write down every little thing. I thought it was taking up my time, and frustrating me when I'm in situations where the best option is not really best. So I took a break thinking I've been tracking since April, and by now I know what I can eat. Of course we all know knowing and doing are not the same.
I realized last week I let that little kid control me. I got to the "I can do it MYSELF, DON'T help me.......STOP! let me do it!!!!" stage. I took off the training wheels, I picked what I wanted for dinner, I stayed up as late as I wanted eating snacks........and I gained weight. I think it's mostly that "vacation" weight. Once back in the normal schedule hopefully it will go off fairly quickly [but I know it'll be much harder to leave than it was to come back].
Today I tracked my food and have consumed about 530 calories. I'm planning on keeping on my gym clothes and heading back tonight. Usually I work out after my morning shift from 9-11 but I was hungry, needed to get grocery shopping, and my landlord/aunt was coming over. I am not going to be sitting reading blogs all day for it is CLEANING day! yep, bathrooms, kitchen, laundry, windows, and my favorite: vacuuming the stairs! Lucky me. Then the following in no particular order: homework, blogs, working out.
