Progress - needing more(?)

I'm making better choices now. I had cake on Saturday - we had a birthday party for my parents and brother - all August birthdays. But otherwise, if I'm craving something sweet, I'm drinking. I didn't have seconds on Saturday, though I wanted to. I ate right other than the cake - a grilled chicken sandwich with 1/4 cup of potato salad made with light mayo and no chips.

I'm consistantly moving more. One day last week I ended up at almost 12k steps. Otherwise I've been averaging between 8k and 10k steps.
When I want something sweet or want to overeat, I focus on drinking water. I'm almost back up to 128+ oz/day. The last few days I've been over 100 oz.

I'm back to feeling better instead of feeling like crap from lousy eating choices. All in all, I'm back to losing weight, and that's a good thing.

What healthy choices have you made?

August 19 - Miss You, Daddy

Yesterday marks 8 years since my father died at the age of 80. I still miss him every day. I know he would have loved to meet the kids.

Yesterday was busy. But I also saw how hard its going to be to stay on plan on days I work for my brother. He has ice cream, pop tarts and all sorts of other things that aren't conducive to losing weight. Today I'll be more careful. The temptation will still be there, but I'm not going to give in to it any more. Look out world.

Only 4100 steps as well. I need to increase that. I'm wearing the pedometer again today. We'll see where it sits tonight.

Hot, hotter, hottest

My car is having trouble with overheating, and one of my belts is squealing again too. Of course its adding to my stress, especially since I don't have more than a part time job. I'm doing well most of the time controlling the stress eating.

Then my brother's truck is overheating on the way to his warehouse. Since I starting working for him today, it makes it interesting. He's dropping it at a garage tonight.

My part time job is on my feet. Though the food may be interesting to figure out, I know I'll be moving around. I'll figure it out as I go along. I can at least focus on my water and moving.
