I'm not a fan of counting calories or keeping a food journal. The MyFitnessPal.com is a great tool but I'm having a hard time seeing the point for me. Why? I am struggling with the same range of numbers I started out the year with and it's frustrating. Some days I still eat like crap but I'm within my calorie range. I went to dinner with a group of women. One was doing weight watchers and the others were doing some point system that I couldn't keep up with and to be honest it was a little frustrating. The enjoyment of a meal has just been broken down in numbers and it's no longer fun to go out and eat. There is more worry to it than anything else, at least for this group. There has to be some balance some where. Right?
My #MorningMile is still going strong. Although I did take a break on Sunday just to catch up on rest again this week. You can read how I started the #MorningMile over here. This weeks video has to do with a new challenge that I'm working on. Hope you enjoy the beats.

Scale Reading -172 - all of that I lose 1 pound. Awesome!
Stress Level -I was stressed out from birthday party mode. In the span of a week we had 3 parties. No pressure! The heat is really bad here in Texas. It's tough to train in it.
The UP side- Only one party left. I'm training for the Beach Palooza and have a 5K coming up. I hit a few personal records this week at Crossfit! My dead lifts are 195 pounds and my box squat was 215 pounds. What?! What?! Amazing!!
