In the past couple of weeks I haven't been up to posting on my blog.  I am not sure if it's because I have been busy lately or maybe because I  haven't had too much to say.    I didn't weigh in this week partly because it was a long weekend and partly because I didn't want to see the number on the scale.  I am disappointed in myself for not going since it is the first time since I started Weight Watchers that I haven't. 
I will for sure go this Monday and see the damage I have done.  I have been tracking and exercising (maybe not as much as I would like to)  but my food choices haven't been the greatest and I can feel myself going down a slippery slope.  I will not let that happen, it stops now!  I am not sure if it's the boredom of tracking my food but this program is working for me.  Running has been working for me.   It works but I just have to stick with it.  I know certain things about myself that I need to have protein in the morning to start the day off right.  Egg whites with a slice of bread in the morning seems to help me stay full and  helps me make the right choices throughout the day.  
 I haven't been working as much in the past couple of weeks it's a slow period and when I have too much time on my hands I eat more then I should.  I am a bit anxious about money right now but I am trying to stay positive and be careful with the money I have.  Wouldn't it be nice to be a millionaire?     
Last Saturday I ran a race called Run or Dye.  If you have Facebook I am sure you have seen it advertised.  It's a charity race that happens all over Canada and The USA.  About every km and half they have volunteers throw powder dye at you.   It makes you feel like a kid again :)   I finally broke a personal record, I finished at 41:59!    I have been wanting to get under 45 minutes forever!   I can finally cross that off the list and work towards my next goal :) 

I am so glad I remembered to bring a sheet with me to put in the car!  or it would have been one hot mess! 

I am one of those people who constantly right notes to myself, to do list, goals list etc.  I have been that way since I was a kid.  I truly love the satisfaction of cross things off a list.  This past April I wrote a list of all the things I had planned this summer. 
Wow I did a lot and this list is about 2/3 of what I actually did.   The only downfall I have been noticing I am not enjoying the moments as much as I should.  I seem to be always thinking about the next thing I am doing and how to plan for it.  I don't know if that makes any sense to you but it kind of makes me sad and I think that is part of the reason why the summer went by so fast!  It seems like it was June just yesterday.  Although I do think it is important to plan for trips etc.   I need to take a step back and truly enjoy the moments.      
I will try to this tomorrow as I am in my first golf tournament.
