New idea.

So I had this idea, I have been trying to figure out a way to reward myself for my hard work, I usually say "When I lose X-lbs I will ---" But doesn't it make more sense to reward consistency? SO maybe I should look at things more like this "When I work out 3 times a week I will----" or "When I stay within my calorie range I will----" 
I have a feeling that this way of thinking would be more healthy mentally. It is rewarding the lifestyle not just weight loss. Obviously weight loss is my goal but health is my priority. 
Since this week is already started I am going to make a mini goal. I am going to get back on track by logging all of my food regardless of how good or bad it is. 
I have to go home this weekend for a funeral (my husbands 2nd cousin, we were prepared for it to happen so it has been a little easier to deal with) so I hope to get back on the counting calories track officially on Monday. However I am going to keep track of what I am eating and not relying on the I'll start Monday eat everything frame of mind. So here's hoping for best.

great idea! And easier to stay on track and positive too! You can only control YOUR actions and choices... sometimes our bodies just don't listen and using something that can at some times be out of your control as a way to guage success, can get disconcerting! you GO girl!
