I think the reality of this challenge is starting to set in, both in a good way and a bad way. I find myself thinking more about how I can adjust my schedule to fit exercise in, even when out of town or busy, but I also find myself dreaming more about pizza and nachos.

We've had some recent set-backs in my family that kind of disrupted more normal plan. We had a death in the family Christmas Eve which led to having to go out of town two weekends in a row. This was pretty difficult to deal with because I had to figure out ways to still do my workouts (I'm counting down the days until our Anytime Fitness key gets us is anywhere! Just a couple more...) and remain attentive to my calorie count. I decided to order a Polar Heart Rate Monitor so I could monitor my heart rate when I am not at the gym. Luckily, it syncs with the LifeFitness machines in the gym too! That helped me when I went walking/jogging around the neighborhood or got on the family's ancient exercise bike.

I think anyone who has tried to transform themselves through dieting and exercising has had the experience of glorious food haunting them. Yes, I am there right now. Maybe it's because I didn't binge during the holidays this year. I don't know. But what I do know is that pizza, nachos, Cheetos, and wine sure do sound tasty. It is really taking a lot of my willpower to not give into those temptations. My trainer, Steve, does allow me one day a week (can't wait for Sunday!) when I can eat whatever I want. My goal on those days is to gets in some of those forbidden foods provided it's only "some." It sure has been hard waiting for Sunday though.

A couple things I've learned this week: 1) This is not a short term diet/exercise program. This is for a year, and hopefully a positive change for the rest of my life. 2) I may have to deviate a little from my workout routine but the most important thing is that I am doing something. 3) Patience. Sunday will come!
