Through this process I am going through of making permanent changes to my eating habits and my thinking about my health, I have realized that THIS IS HARD!! I know no one said it would be easy but really really didn't think it would be this HARD! 
My life is not routine, I do not have set schedules through out my day. I am depending on myself alone! No one is here motivating me to get out of bed at 6 I still seem to want to sleep til 8 am when I know I need to get up and exercise as its the  only time in my day I have time for it.
Knowing this I am still having a block against doing it. However, I am thinking about it which is more than I used to, I am feeling guilty when I don't get my butt out of bed. 
I should be losing 2 pounds a week and instead I am only losing a half pound to a this rate I will have grandchildren before I get to my goal weight...:( that is not acceptable.

Below are some great snacks that taste yummy too...I am adding some of these to my snack list.
Hopefully it will give some of you guys a few great ideas as well.

I weighted in for the week and had not lost or gained....I am not surprised as I did not eat as well and no exercise was done on my part. Not even my counter pushups and squats.:( 
Nobody to blame but myself. This journey is a long one and I am not going to get down over a scale not moving. Back to the drawing board and working this week on doing what I didn't do last week.
Hope you all have a great weekend and are having a little better luck on your journeys.
