I am bad at this

So... I haven't been posting, mostly because I went a little wayward. We went away for a few days and then Chad was on vacation for a little over a week so my schedule was messed up...enough excuses.  This week I have been back on track. I have not been snacking and I have exercised everyday for at least 30 minutes. I am drinking lots of water. I am not sure of total weight loss, but I know I have lost some. That is the goal.
I was thinking about doing a juice diet since I know a few people who have had success with it lately but I feel like it would be expensive. I would still have to cook regular meals for Chad and Sophie. I would like to try it, maybe someone could let me know how much fruit/veg is required for a week.
Anyway, I will try to be better at posting...I am determined this time to lose the weight. Every time i get tempted to eat something i shouldn't, the reasons I want to reach my goal pop into my head.
Any other motivational tricks/ tips are welcomed.

Day 1 and 2

Day one went well. I did everything I wanted to do. I exercised, didn't snack, drank lots of water. I always find that the first couple days, even weeks sometimes, are easy to have determination when it comes to getting in shape, and then I get lazy with it, so lets hope this keeps up. 

Today is day 2, I am doing well with the not snacking, but I dont think I will be getting a work out in today. We are heading to New Glasgow and Cape Breton to visit family this weekend and I dont have anytime to exercise, however running up and down the stairs trying to get everything packed and ready may be considered a work out. I will be trying my best not to lose focus this weekend!

This time!

So over the years I have been setting goals to lose weight and never following through. Starting today I am trying again, this time it is going to work! I thought that if I post about the beginning, and every day, or every 2 days depending on how busy things get, i post about my progress I will be able to attain my goal. I am not going to tell my starting weight yet as i am just too embarrassed by it. I will  say what it was when I start to lose. I will also post "before and after" pictures as I lose as well.

I currently am eating whatever I want whenever I want. I usually skip breakfast,  I dont drink enough water, I dont exercise. So I am not  going to try any crazy diets, my plan to start out is that I am going to start drinking 8 cups of water everyday, I am going to exercise at least 5 days a week, i am going to start eating more healthy foods, cutting out snacks and not eating after I finish supper.

I realize I haven't been keeping up with my blog, so if no one is reading this that is fine, it is still a way for me to track my progress, however, if there is anyone still reading that has some tasty healthy recipes, please let me know.
