List Making is Awesome / Possibility

I love making lists. One of my favorite things to do each week is sit down and figure out what I'll be making for dinner the following week, then make up the grocery list. Once I have all the items written down, I rewrite the list in order of the geography of the grocery store. For example, I write the produce down first, then canned items, then bread, frozen stuff, meats, cereal, dairy, then household items.

Yup, I'm a freak.

Still, as I've said before, planning ahead has played an enormous role in my weight loss. Knowing pretty much exactly what I'll be eating tomorrow helps me avoid temptation.

Yesterday I received some news about an awesome thing that could potentially happen to me. It's not set in stone yet, so I'm not going to elaborate except to say that this experience would be amazing. In order for it to happen, though, I need to lose 5 more pounds. Even then, it may not pan out. Still, the possibility has given me a kick in the rear that I've desperately needed the past couple weeks. Even though my exercise is going wonderfully, my eating has been on a slippery slope and I needed a wake up call. I've been sticking to my diet and exercise plan to the letter, and I'm doing great.
