For me weight loss occurs when I find a routine that works. I know that I get up every morning, jump out of bed, eat breakfast, jump in the shower, get the kids off to school, head out to school myself, have a snack, have lunch, clean the house, have a snack, help kids with homework, fix dinner, spend time with the kids, have a snack and head off to bed. Now you know how boring my life is...lol....Anyway I'm feeling the groove.
Well my groove is going to be tested this next week because I'm heading out for a 5 day trip to New Orleans on Saturday with students from school for a photography convention. I'm already trying to plan out what I'm going to have so that I don't blow these 5 days. Its very important to me that I stay on track and come back from this trip with a loss. I plan on taking cereal bars for breakfast so thats covered. I do have to volunteer a few hours a day while I'm there helping out at the convention so that will keep me busy and my thoughts off food. My problem is I'm going to have to be completely dependent on fast food the whole time I'm there and we are attending parties where the alcohol is free...not good. Hopefully I can stay strong and avoid those empty calories. I do plan on having one traditional New Orleans meal while I'm there so I will have to plan for that so that I don't go over my points. I just have to take this as another challenge to overcome.
I will miss my weigh in on Tuesday and my meeting which really sucks but that just means I have two weeks to lose instead of one so I should lose twice as much weight. I'm determined not to let anyone or anything stand in my way of losing weight but I do sometimes wonder when my willpower will give. Just hoping I can stay strong and hit goal this time.
