and no, not the kind down by the school yard.
Woah….those were some sick rhymes I just spit out. Maybe I should become a rapper?!?! Or one of those SLAM poets?!?! No?? Stick to my day job you all say…..fine.
I’m a track star because as of today I have tracked every single day for an entire month!!!!
I really am in shock to be honest. Over the past year I have been lucky to maybe successfully track 2 days in a row. But a month ago something just “clicked” and it has stuck with me for the entire month. I have tracked every single Bite, Lick & Taste!! Well, everything except for my beers. But just the fact that I’ve tracked ALL of my food, EVERY day (yes, even weekends and a “freebie” day) for an ENTIRE month is such an amazing accomplishment for myself.
My weight loss progress has been slow (please note sentence above about the beers) but there are still some things I haven’t put
any much effort into (please note sentence above about the beers) but I told my self…one thing at a time. I’m down 3.4 lbs so far and that is WAY better than putting on another 5-8 lbs which would have happened this month if I wasn’t tracking and paying attention to what I am putting into my body.
Tracking is now a HABIT AGAIN!! And that feels fucking AWESOME!! I’m holding myself accountable. I’m checking my Weight Watcher Point Values. I’m calculating that shit and putting it into my WW app multiple times a day. Have I mentioned how awesome this feels?? Have I mentioned that while I don’t have control of everything (please note sentence above about the beers) in my life right now, I DO have control of my tracker!! I know the streak wont last forever, but I know the habit is back in place and I am not letting it slip away from me AGAIN!!
Now it’s time to move onto the next habit I need to work on again (please note sentence above about the beers).
I have become a track star AGAIN!! If I can do it….so can YOU!!
If you haven’t already please come on over and ‘Like’ the Facebook page I started for this blog. I am loving it and I really enjoy posting there and seeing all the support and inspiration that we all feed off of each other.

Blog reader Katy wrote to me and told me about this awesome thing she is doing called the Miracle Marathon Journey. Here is what she had to say about it…
Since a traditional marathon is 26.2 miles, Miracle Marathon adds a special touch by adding one more mile "for the kids." Over the course of 27 days, we are going to complete one mile per day by walking, running, dancing, skipping or just moving to reach that goal. It's a marathon - plus an extra mile - for the kids! All donations are tax-deductible and collected securely by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. 100% of the proceeds go to my local MU Children's Hospital.
If you can please visit her fundraising page here and support this awesome cause and cheer Katy on for her 27.2 miles!! GO KATY!!
