I seem to suck at tracking my food intake so far. My days are so busy and full of meetings, and work, and after work meetings and life in general gets in my way. But this who getting into shape thing is really really important to me. Lately I have been busy and tired. So I feel like I just keep making excuses for myself. It’s easy to not exercise when I am tired. It’s easy not to eat 100% right when I am feeling burnt out and grab what is easiest. But is this helping me reach my goal? No. Is it good for my health in general? No.

Today after work, I am heading the store. To pick up some needed items as well as to get a bunch of fresh vegetables and fruits. If I have that stuff in the house. I eat it. But when I don’t. I reach for the chips or pretzels or carb loaded snack item. Tonight when I go the store, I am picking up the vegetables and fruits – I want to get carrots, celery, apples, bananas, sweet potatoes, etc. etc. etc. I am doing myself a disservice – and I don’t feel as good as I did when I was exercise 4 to 5 times a week, eating veggies and fruit everyday. I am just in a rut. Time to get that fixed.

I have also be super dyhrdated too. I drank over 2 Nalgenes and I wake up with a horrible feel in my stomach. I have NOT been taking care of myself . IT’s been work and go, go, go, for 2 weeks now. Time to get back on track. Not a good formula for the content life.

7:00AM: Cup of coffee with coconut creamer and overnight oats with chocolate peanutella.
9:30AM: Second cup of coffee with three vanilla creamer cups.
10:34AM: Hunger strikes. Eating a banana. Drinking more water.

Back from my whirlwind trip with 90% of wedding decorations, 50% of vendors figured out, and a wedding dress! Also…I ate A LOT this weekend with my family and going to all the fancy restaurant. And guess what’s coming in the mail today? My bikini’s. Guess who needs to hit the gym? This kid.

Want to see some of the things I ate this weekend? Totally tasty, not so good for the waist line. 😦 Did exercise one day with my sis, and then we did do A LOT of walking. So I think we still were pretty active.

Homemade pizzelle from my sister!

Veggie sandwhich with Sugar Free Soy Coconut Latte.

California Burritos from Jalapeno’s!

Mac and Cheese dinner with pretzel from airport, for dinner last night.

Today started off with a cup o’ coffee with coconut creamer and a Peanut Butter Chocolate Zone bar. Not my first nutricious choice, but I forgot I had a meeting from 7:15 am to 8:15 am, so I scarfed it down! I am not on my second cup of coffee and I just realized it some how became 10 am. So I am hungry again. I need to start eating well again, this weekend – I ate out so much and I did not hold back! I think I may have gained about 3 pounds. So let’s get this thing going. I am now having a second cup of coffee with vanilla and caramel machiatto creamer, plus drinking water (gotta stay hydrated), and about a 1/2 cup of apple sauce. Mmm! So tonight is going to be tricky – got a late flight in last night and early morning at work (doing for ten-hour shifts again). Tonight I wanted to exercise, but on 5 to 6 hours of sleep – my body needs rest and I think we might do a frozen pizza for dinner.

Speaking of water – I do not drink enough of it. I am going to log my water throughout the day to reach a goal.  
+ 10:00am: 4 oz (out of my goal, 64oz)

A long day ahead of me.
