Checking In...

I don't know what I was thinking.  Who decides to try to make life altering changes the week before school starts?  Whoever they are...they are STUPID!!!  Good thing I'm taking baby steps huh?  I've been doing much better with the night time snacking...not perfect, but better.  We've taken a few after dinner walks...but it's still been so damn HOT!!!  Breaking down that iron wall we call dad/pa...not a single bit of progress.

I've still got my list of things to pick up at Walmart...#1 on the list is the scale.  I know I'm making excuses, but when I haven't been treading water at work, I've been drowning in volleyball stuff (I'm now the president of the board for the high school's feeder team).  I've been trying to reinvent the wheel over here...and I'm finally making headway.  So today, I'm headed to Walmart on my lunch break.

So here are my goals for the next week: 
1. Weigh in and take measurements.
2. No night time snacking.
3. Walk at least 4 days.

Thanks to everyone that has read this.  I've had a few people ask how else they can follow me if they're not on Google Connect.  I wasn't planning on starting a separate facebook page, but here ya go.  You can follow me here

Have a great rest of the week!!!
