Today was a travel day, so I didn’t work out. I’m excited about the progress I’ve made, but I realize that it takes more willpower for me to stick with my plan at home (the last 2 weeks I’ve been on the road). It’s easy to munch or graze on the goodies that my family has around. I ate more today than any other day since I’ve started my plan. This just reinforces that I need to have discipline and plan a bit better. I could have just said no to the half of a sandwich or extra crab rangoon. No excuses! On the up side, while playing with my 16 month old cousin I was reminded of another reason to be on this quest to get healthy. I love children, and hope to have some of my own one day. I need to be healthy to do that. Don’t worry. That won’t be any time soon. LOL. I am loving being Teetee Ricky and being able to always return to my grown up home and pass up on the stinky diapers. Tomorrow is a new day. Wish me luck. I’m certainly sending positive thoughts your way.
18 days down, 3 more until it’s a habit. I’m still not sure about that one…
Much nub and fitness,

Hang in there, Ericka. Reflecting on the things you did is a step in the right direction to changing it. It must be hard to have all the good food at your family's house. I don't put it in the house…so it is easier…but you don't have that control over it at someone else's house. One thing that helps is to "trick" your mind into not liking those foods. Or before eating it, ask yourself, "Are these calories worth it? Does it taste that good for long enough to warrant the guilt I will feel about it later?"hugs and love!!!bets
