It's Hard Out There

Hi y’all! I know it’s been awhile since I posted.  Things are starting to settle down for the summer.  I’m still working two jobs from 8am to 9pm Monday-Thursday but believe it or not, the pace has slowed down quite a bit.  I manage to put on around 8 pounds in May with my birthday and the beach so I am feeling pretty discouraged.  I tried a plan of sorts on my own but I am just not great at dieting unless I am counting.  I have downloaded the app Lose It in lieu of rejoining Weight Watchers to see how it goes.  I am holding off on rejoining Weight Watchers just for monetary reasons.  The Lose It app is cool because you tell it what you weigh, what you want to weigh and when you want to weigh that and it sets a calorie budget for you.  Each day, you go in and tell it what you have eaten and it removes the calories for you.  It has a ton of food info stored already from restaurants and other products.  You can also scan a barcode right in it.  The only thing I haven’t quite figured out yet is there a section called “net calories” that I’m not sure what to make of.  Hopefully this app will help me get back on track.  I will keep you up to date.  I want to lose 20 or so pounds before football season.  I just have to quit allowing myself exceptions.  Wish me luck y’all…I’ve been struggling.  I won’t give up. I posted some pictures from the past couple of weeks below.  I’ve done a lot! I also posted some videos on Facebook that you can see if we are friends.  Because I’m working so much it’s hard for me to cook but hopefully I will have some recipes and tips for you next week. I’ve also gotten lazier about exercising.  I’m still working out 5-6 days a week but not as hard as I was so it’s time to shape up! Let me know if anyone has any advice.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Good luck to every one else that's struggling with their goals too!

Roll Tide to our softball team too!
