My Tips on How I Plan to Get Back on Track & Get Serious

I am no kiddin’ starting back today getting back to the basics of the healthy habits that I have been slacking off of for a while now. I’ve decided I need to get back to religiously tracking with my dietSNAPS app, measuring out serving sizes, counting the WW’s PointsPlus of my meals again and being held accountable by posting HERE every day!!!!! :)

I’m starting to feel just *a little* out of control. I’m trying to focus on my new 90 Day Challenge goal of dropping bodyfat % and getting leaner but since I’ve been maintaing for over a year now (that’s an accomplishment in itself!!)  it has been SUPER hard to get serious and refocused on this new goal and journey!!! I haven’t been able to commit 100% on my new goal because I haven’t been consistent with my normal daily healthy habits like I was before. So I now feel like I need to really concentrate on the baby steps and healthy habits to move forward.

I came across this post of mine from back in March of this year of my 1 year anniversary with Weight Watchers and using the dietSNAPS app.  Sometimes we have to look back on what we did before to be successful and go back to doing those things that we may not be doing as well now. :)

Just FYI – this week is gonna be a getting-back-on-track painful week. I am gonna have to ‘OWN’ every BLT (Bite, Lick, & Taste). My favorite WW Leader Karen always says “If you BITE it WRITE it. If you DRINK it INK it.” Tracking it sooo important!!! I will  start taking a picture of it all to see the big picture so I can start establishing the habits I need to again. Its part of the ‘process’ of getting back to feeling awesome again like I did before when I was in more control, making better choices, and seeing results.  So I’m just warning you now…….some of the days ahead may not be too purdy!!! :)


My dietSNAPS Fire Bites today:

Breakfast – Vi-shake with almond/coconut milk and 1/2 frozen banana with AM Vi-Pak -3pts+
Snack – 2 eggs and 1/3 cup oatmeal with brown sugar & cinnamon and a scoop of Vi-shake stirred in…seriously SO good!! – 8pts+
Late Lunch- protein waffle (with a scoop of Vi-shake mix–again SO GOOD!) with banana and Redi-whip and drizzle of honey – 7pts+
Mid afternoon – dark chocolate cooca almonds while dinner was cooking. Then really started to get hungry and had some dark chocolate covered almonds. 6pts+
Dinner – Porcupine Meatballs with spaghetti squash and green beans – guesstimated 5pts+
(SUPER good!!! will post recipe soon!)
Total 29pts+

Frametastic app

I’m sure I will be thinking of more habits that I need to be doing again as the week goes on. I will mention them in my posts so maybe it will be something you need to hear and work on as well. :)


What do you do to get back on track and refocused when you have a new goal??

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
