Today’s affirmation is “Today I make self-care a priority”. I love this one and think it’s pretty important. my idea of self care is getting enough sleep, exercise, water, and CORRECT foods. So this is my goal for the day!
So I began reading “Spirit Junkie” (again) and “May Cause Miracles” by Gabrielle Bernstein. I was first introduced to Gabby’s work about a year ago from a friend, and decided to pick up a copy of Spirit Junkie. I was obsessed with the idea of being a happier person and finding love in everyday situations. Well, like usual, I got half way through and lost interest. I...
so after some thought, my new years resolution: 1. lose the weight i need to (around 50 pounds), and stick to it this time. 2. keep myself organized (room, schedule, head). 3. be happy, look for the positive in things.
blahhh tuesdays are so long for me!! internship, class, break, class, sleep… i weighed myself this morning since weigh in is in 2 days and it says i have 1.4 to go to my 20 pds lost.! not sure if i can do it in 2 days- but i’ll try to get some exercise in today and tomorrow. i will keep the 2 people that read this updated!
2.4 until my 10% goal! weigh in is thursday. i can do it! zumba tomorrow followed by tons of exercise the rest of the week. stay tuned!
not weight loss related, but somewhere to get my feelings out. i’m seriously so bummed. and embarrassed. i don’t know which is worse. this is why i never put myself out there to the opposite sex. it never works out. unless god has a super huge plan for me that i don’t know about yet… i feel like i’ll be forever alone! i usually don’t care, but its really hit me...
I didnt make it to my meeting due tp a migrane and cramps, so i weighed myself at home. +.4 :( 2 weeks to lose these 4 pounds! #10by1031
8 activity points for today! I just tried my first ever zumba class and it was a lot of fun! It was more salsa than i would have liked, but fun none the less. i went alone too, which is a HUGE accomplishment for me. i like being alone, but not doing things alone- if that makes sense? so i’m gonna try to do it twice a week somewhere. hopefully tonights session helped me to not gain for...
Well the concerts, drinking, and 3000 cheese amd crackers led to a 3 pound weight gain! In 3 days! Whoaa Back to my regular meals today. Why does having fun kill my progress!
So these past 3 days have been full of shitty eating! Dont want a gain thurs so i cant really splurge the rest of the week. I’m exhausted!
i definitely see how i used to lose track of my diet. i havetwo different offers for tonight (both which involve drinking) and i know tomorrow will be a tough day getting back into healthy eating. blah! last night i had 3 beers, half my sandwich, half my salad, and a couple of fried pickles. not TOO bad. it would have been a whole sandwich and the whole plate of fried pickles. alcohol just makes...
i forgot to mention- my daily target went down a point so i only get 29 now :( since i did so well, i’m treating myself tonight.. and tomorrow! my goal is to only have 2 pumpkin beers tonight (12 pts) and half a grilled chicken sandwich with a fried pickle or two. tomorrow is lunch with my cousin who i NEVER see, but i’ll keep it light. soup and salad? then tomorrow night is a...
So i just weighed in and i’m down… 5.4!!!! What?!? How does that even happen?! That leaves me -16.6 all together and 3.4 left to my 10% goal :) so happy!! This month is going well so far! #10by1031
So tomorrow is WIW and i’m hoping for a bigger loss than last week! I was craving corn (random) so i made a mini bbq chicken sandwich with corn for dinner :) I already reached my activelink goal for the day, so after class i’m definitely just showering and passing out!
so by the end of september i wanted to be 185.. i weighed myself this morning and i was…. 186 :( which is good, but my scale has a tendency to lie to me! if it’s true i’m 1 pound away from my 15 pound mark and 6 away from my 10% goal! :) i made a buffalo chicken salad dinner (10 pp) which was good and filling! my activelink is only 72% at goal for the day, so i’m going to...
Lost 1 pound! Kind of disappointing considering how much work i put in this week, but a loss is a loss.
tomorrow i weigh in and i have a strong feeling i didn’t lose. i exercised 3 times this week and didnt go over my points. i used all my flex points though, so if i don’t have the lose i expected i will have to not use as many :(
i don’t know if it’s been because i’ve been sick for the past couple of days or my appetite has just completely changed, but i’m not really hungry come dinner time any more- mostly just breakfast (if that). my weight has pretty much stayed the same though :/
i weighed myself this morning and it looks like i’m a down a pound or so. thank goodness! i have really been counting every little thing i put in my mouth. that’s what she said. i’m making chicken cheesy risotto tonight and have to save 10 pts for 2 drinks later in the evening for a goodbye thing. i used all my weeklies :(
did my 1.5 mile walk and now laying down watching a movie! quiet friday night lol. i bought my activelink yesterday, today was my first full day of assessment so we’ll see how it goes, i had a super filling dinner from panera bread for only 12 pts. a cup of french onion with no croutons, half a turkey breast sandwich and a bag of baked chips! so yummy
where you, you left me alone. you left me alone..
i didnt look at it this way.. but instead of having HUGE goals of 20 pds, my new goal is 9.4 and i’ll be at 20 pds lost! it doesn’t seem so scary that way! this week will be hard with 2 (maybe 3) drinking nights. flex points dont fail me now! i’ll be purchasing the activelink tomorrow though finally :)
a good way to eat less at dinner? accidentally put pork on your plate instead of chicken :( blegh! baked potato and corn it is!
2 pounds until i’m outttttttt of the 190’s!! i have a weigh in on Wed- i’ll have to work hard!
you should never gamble anything that you are not...
i weighed in this morning, and i actually lost 2 pounds according to my scale. what? i’ll take it. i am forgoing all of my responsibilities today and just LAYING IN BED. yup. i am missing something somewhat important- but i’ll be doing it for the next couple of months. this week has been hell- i have literally drove back and forth to a far away town over 10 times and the weeks not...
I have all the tools i need to succeed, lets see what happens!
so my diet has definitely been nonexistent for the past couple of weeks, and it all came to head today. my cousins getting married in 10 days and i tried on my dress today- and it’s too small! it squishes my boobs completely. it’s a lauren conrad dress and hers must run super small- i even went a size up so i wouldn’t be in this position. so 10 pounds is my goal- though...
someone/thing give me energy to work out!! ahhhhhh
too scared to go to my meeting- i weighed in at home. i only gained .3 pds! what?! the other day it was saying 3. i guess i could have gone, but oh well. i have a breakfast date anyways :)
so a week and a half of eating whatever and drinking whatever has resulted in a 3 pld gain :( i weigh in on monday so i’m making sure i do really good today and tomorrow. the worst part is that i would have gladly stayed home all week and ate better to see a better result on the scale. my goal is to be 185 by sep 8 for my cousins bday. I have to give a speech so i’m nervous!
this week was awful with eating. tomorrow is weigh in, i’m hoping i still lose a pound by tomorrow! i would love to be 190 and hit my 10 pound weight loss, but we’ll see. i’m used to weighing-in in the morning, but tomorrow will be at 6pm :/
so weigh in was ok, i lost 1.8. i was hoping for more, but a loss is a loss! it was just a long week of saying no to food with friends. i’m going bowling tonight which i guess counts as a workout alittle? i’m going to go swimming in a bit too. i think i need to pick up the exercising pace so i can see a bigger loss next week. the only night i’m worried about is friday-...
today was so long! i hate working 3-11pm. i was up late last night knowing i could sleep in, and me and a friend had pizza around midnight. i figured it is a new day, so i would just add those points to today. except i’ve been starving! 10 less points than usual :( tomorrow i should be in a better mood since i’ll be able to eat “normal” again. if i don’t go to zumba...
why am i on the computer when i should be working out?
1.86 miles, a nice shower, and a marathon of laguna beach!! could this day off get any better? doubtful.
talk about motivation..
while cleaning out my closet, i found all of these cute old work clothes that i used to wear. size medium! they look so tiny now compared to what i wear (a large/sometimes xl). and of course that jacket that i love is back there.. i cant bring myself to throw them away. i will fit in them some day, and they are just so cute!
check in monday!
lost 5 pounds being back on the plan! i feel good. my main motivation- fitting into my winter jacket. i LOVE this thing. 2 years ago it was really snug and uncomfortable but last year it wouldn’t zipper. i would love to rock it for my birthday (4 months away). i can do it! i think i need to lose about 25 to get back into it comfortably. i had a really delish lunch from panera for 11...
i went out to lunch and was scared i’d go over my points (i usually do when i eat out). my mom get a free appetizer and her and my sister ate them while i.. drum roll please… didn’t touch them! or the popcorn! i had my soup and salad and couldn’t even eat it all. tomorrow i’ll go for my walk. i’m hanging out with a friend tonight and hopefully she...
this is an uncomfortable spot i’ve thrown myself in. i don’t know if i’m just super paranoid or if people are huge assholes. i’m excited to just come home later and lay down. i wish the rain was gone so i could go for a walk. i took 2 vicodin earlier for my head and i passed out way longer than i wanted to haha. can’t wait to move on with school and life! get me...
