Today I'm going to be honest with myself and August goals

The husband and I on vacation.
My mom, who took the picture, told me to point at something.... It did not turn out quite how she pictured it.
Welp. Yesterday I got to start walking around the house without the boot on. All barefoot and fanciful. The main reason I'm barefoot is because none of my shoes have been worn the same way anymore so it throws me off. Which is weird because I do just fine with the boot and a shoe, which are two totally different heights, but whatever. My foot feels so odd to walk with. It takes it a little bit longer to do what I want it too. I also tried popping my toes last night because one was catching. BAD idea. They have not stretched that way in months. It hurt so bad. SO I will be stretching my toes between now and the next attempt to bend my toes forward.
I haven't been able to go on a walk since my last blog. I work late Wednesday and Thursday (5p-11p) so I can't walk after work. And because I work so late I try to sleep in on those morning. Then it's too hot to walk. The gym I was going to is closed because of roof damage from the tornado that went through. Hopefully it opens up soon [especially since I'm pretty sure they are still charging my mom a membership fee (it's an Anytime Fitness so we could drive the 20 miles to the next one over, but gas is expensive we haven't)].
Today I'm at work for 7 hours. 7 boring hours. The other worker I split my shift with isn't here so all 7 hours will be spent sitting at the circulation desk. Where I can't get up and leave. So it's just sitting here. Luckily I have my laptop so I'm not completely sitting here staring at a blank wall.
Today I'm going to be honest with myself. I'm adding the spark tracker to my phone again. I've just been blindly eating. On a whim I added my breakfast and snack to my tracker today. I only have 400 calories left for the entire day. I mean I knew what I had was bad, but wow. I have to start tracking. I have to be accountable. I really wish I had someone I could talk to all day (not constant just randomly through out the day).
OH OH OH AND my best friend is getting married. I'm her matron of honor. I have got to lose some weight. And I need to have the weight gone by at least 6 weeks before the wedding so if I need a bridesmaid dress altered I can have that done. So, it's time to buckle down and work my ass off, literally.
- Get out of the 240's
- Track calories 5/7 days a week
- Drink 64 ounces of water daily
- Make it to school everyday this month (I start the 21st, only 8 days of school in August)
