It’s a great start of the week here at the McCune household! Down to 197! Woot woot! Finally seeing some movement on the scale sure is reassuring. Yea, I’d definitely hoped to have slaughtered more pounds by now but progress is progress right? Does anyone else find summer a challenging time to practice self discipline?
June, for our family, is full of temptation laden events. My son turned two the 9th. Party. Father’s Day was the week after that. Party. Then my husband’s stepfather had a birthday the 20th. Party. And my father and sister’s birthdays were the 21st. Party. And of course all of these parties have lots and lots of food. And then there’s the parades, car shows, festivals. All of which have those wonderful food trucks. Summer just screams elephant ears and corn dogs and who can say no such an alluring tagline? The temptations are great. And at a time of the year where a sense of abandonment has seemed to have blanketed us on these warm carefree days who wants to feel confined by restriction?
Thank goodness, then, for wonderful weather that allows for walks, runs, bike rides, and swims. I’d much rather eat more of the food I love and counterbalance it with some good old physical activity than to restrict myself to seemingly unsustainable amounts of food.
I hope that you, readers, are also enjoying the many fun things that come with summer.
