The Journey Continues.

Since the beginning of January I've been putting in the work. I'm tracking my food and water to make sure I'm paying attention to my nutrition and working out 5 days per week. That's the only way to get it done, eat enough of the right foods, stay hydrated, and be active. And it's working! I'm down 19lbs and I feel great, I'll feel better when the weather warms up, but for now this is good.

I've always concentrated more on eating clean than counting calories but keeping track of what I do helps me make sure I don't skip a meal or eat crap when I'm busy because I don't want to have that in my journal. I'm either too honest....or too OCD to lie and/or leave something out, whatever it is, it makes me want to be better. I use MyFitnessPal because you can set your own goals instead of trying to stay within some impossible range based on a BMI. I also use a separate app to track my water, Hydro Coach. Again, I can adjust my settings so i get just enough reminders so I don't get dehydrated but not so many that I want to throw my phone across the room. These tools help me remember that I'm important and it's important to think about what I put into my body. When you spend your days thinking about everything your kids need, sometimes you forget about yourself. But, what my kids need is me and if I don't take care of me, I won't be the mom that they need.

So, the journey continues.....
