Struggling in Montana

Oh, it is so hard to be away from home for so long and try to stay healthy - especially when I wasn't doing so well with it before I left!

I'm trying to watch my portions while I'm here, but I'm still having a lot of foods that aren't the best for me. There are lots of meals out, meals with relatives, etc. I have cooked some healthy foods, but not enough. I haven't been very active (does going up and down stairs during the day count?). And I have hardly been drinking water.

Once again, I will not give up. I may not be able to accomplish much here (will keep trying though), but it is making me feel even more determined to get healthy when I get home. That is a better feeling than the "nothing's working anyway, so give up" feeling.

I will be home in less than a week. If I could just keep from gaining weight, I would be so happy. Let's see...6 days to make that happen. It CAN be done!

I'm sure some of you are struggling too. I'm with ya! Every day, every hour can be a fresh start if you want it to be. And I'm going to set a goal for tomorrow right now: Drink 4 glasses of water. Doesn't sound like much, but that would be an accomplishment for me!
