This week has been a lot better then the week before. I really attempted to buckle down and track everything and not let my emotions or my though patterns rule my stomach. There was many a night that I contemplated getting up and going to get something from the drive through but instead brushed my teeth and started reading blogs or went to bed. I know I eat when I am bored, I just need to occupy myself with something else. I continue to get better at this day by day and I know I just have to stay consistent.
I mentioned last week that I was going to up my intake of water and boy did I do that! I also did pretty good keeping up with my exercising. Here is my rundown of my water intake and then m exercise for the week.
Water Intake (My water bottle holds 25oz so as I drank it I kept a running total on a note in my phone, I also used other water bottles to measure how much I drank)
Wednesday - 100 oz.
Thursday - 102 oz.
Friday - 70 oz.
Saturday - 108 oz.
Sunday - 59 oz.
Monday - 84 oz.
Tuesday - 100 oz.
Average a day - 89 oz!!!!!!!
Which I am so thrilled about because it is definitely above the recommended 64 oz, I just need to keep this up, my water bottle is what is helping me push through and also my kids. Everyday when I pull the girls off the bus they ask me how many bottles I have had and if I am on number 3 they are so proud and tell me I have all afternoon! But if I am only on 2 they are concerned and tell me I need to drink more. I love their caring hearts for me in this journey.

As you can see there are a lot of little walks in their because I get 20 minutes here and 15 minutes there and I stop at a park and just walk until I have to leave again. I figure it's better then nothing right?! So as you can see my water and exercise were pretty good. My food is coming around so hopefully this weigh in will be kind to me.
My goal this month was to reach 100 miles and it was a crazy month my total miles for the whole month of April are.........64.71 I was shy a good bit of miles but still I am so proud to have logged just around 65 miles in a month, it's about 2 miles a day, and I'll take that!
I link up every Monday with my weekly goals and you can take a look at them over here. My main goal this week is no french fries, they are my weakness and I try and squeeze them into my points wherever I can, but not this week, no french fries for this girly.
Dont forget to link up with Erin at She's A Big Star and Alex over at Skinny Jean Pilgrimage
Alrighty now is the moment of truth!
It is now May 1st and it's time to get real and buckle down and bust through May. My sister's graduation is at the end of the month and I bought this dress that is a smidgen tight and would really like to be in it for her graduation. I would love to lose 5-7lbs this month and I know that if I stick with it I can. It's just making better choices when it comes to my snacking.
I'm headed to a Braves Game tonight to celebrate a birthday with a friend, and I am so excited. I just love baseball season!
