Make It Happen Monday, October 1st

I know it's been a minute since I've been here and I really need to get myself back into a better routine.  I've been dealing with some personal health issues.  I will say this, I am not a fan of doctors that do not listen.  I will be calling another doctor to see if I can find one who does listen.  I will say that the last few weeks have been a struggle to move because the medication made me feel horrible. 

I did join a challenge last Monday, which I did pretty well at until Friday when I got sick.  I am trying to string more good days together where I hit my "challenge" goals.  While it may not seem like a huge deal, it's a start to move in the right direction.  Currently I'm working towards getting a blue dot (this may only mean something to those of you on WW), hitting 5,000 steps per day and getting in at least 64 oz. of water everyday for 6 weeks.  I normally do at least two out of three of these during the week, no problem, but the weekends are not so good.  Here's the thing, honestly, since my weigh-in on June 30th, I have lost 10 pounds.  I'm feeling pretty positive this time around.  It's taking me a bit to get back here, but I feel like I'm doing what I need to do without compromising too much on fat free or fake foods.  Everyday isn't perfect, but I'm striving to put more good days together.  The first time around when I got in the 180's, I was working out a lot.  This time around, I'm realizing that it really is about what I can do consistently.  Meal planning is getting a little easier, but not super easy by any means for me.  My Mom wasn't a huge meal planner in the traditional sense.  

This week, I have meals planned for each weeknight.  The weekends are a little harder to plan because we may or may not be eating all together.  I prepared a cauliflower potato soup that smells amazing for lunch this week.  If it tastes as good as it smells, I'm in for a treat.  I have pre-tracked my dinners for the weekdays.  I tracked the soup for Monday, the spaghetti squash, marinara and the chicken meatballs that I will have on Tuesday.  They are already prepared and in the refrigerator.  I do feel like I have a good start on the week.  I hope everyone has a GREAT Monday!
