Messing Up + Being Consistent

Hey everyone and happy Wednesday! I am so happy to share that we are all finally feeling better here! It's been a rough start to 2019 as far as getting sick and then sick and then sick again but, we are well now! Give me a minute while I go knock on wood.

February kind of went by like a blur for us. I can't believe that March begins this Friday! I am so ready for it because that means we are just that much closer to SPRING! Bring on the Spring! I am ready to get outside and enjoy nature again!

This month posed a lot of different challenges for me as far living out the healthier lifestyle that I am always working toward improvement on. I celebrated my birthday at the beginning of the month, then it was Valentine's day, then we all got sick and I didn't want to cook and we ordered out a lot. I mean, we had Chinese food (a few times), McDonald's, we went out for Italian food. We ate out a lot in this short month! Thankfully, I started reeling things back toward the end of this month and it looks like I will still be ending the month with a small loss on the scale!

If anything, I wanted to mention all of the challenges and the ways we "messed up" this month because it still goes to show that just because you "mess up" (and say, get Chinese take-out twice in one week), doesn't mean that you should give up! 

My motto for this season: Consistency is not never messing up; it's never giving up!

I have been making some small changes that have been adding up lately, as well. This past Sunday, I stopped by the drive-thru at Wendy's and instead of ordering a cheeseburger meal, I picked a salad. They have some of the best salads for a fast food chain!

It's small choices like this that add up over time so, even if I did eat Chinese food twice in one week earlier this month, I have the opportunity each day to make small choices that add up and eventually overrule the not-so-great choices! The proof will be on the scale! I'll be weighing in tomorrow for my final weigh-in of the month and soon I'll be sharing my total weight lost in 2019, thus far!
