Food Diary.

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe that I haven’t blogged in 5 days!  What is wrong with me?!

Well, got on the scale today and was really happy!  I worked really hard this week to eat healthy and not give into my cravings and looks like it paid off!  I think that I’m going to make my goal in a few days–I’m not gonna speak too soon but I’m really determined to get there.

I know this is totally going to sound like a marketing scheme but I promise that I am getting no commission or anything of the sort….  But I am seriously obsessed with this new food diary/motivator I got from Urban Outfitters.  It was only 10 dollars!  It’s official title is “Diet Doodle Diary” but it’s nice because it’s not printed all over on the outside so when you have it in public, not everyone can tell what it is.  The first pages of the diary have a woman’s body and has places to put your beginning measurements.  On the next place it has a place to put your resting heart rate and starting weight which you record weekly.  Throughout the whole thing it gives encouragement and ideas, I would honestly recommend it because so far I’ve used it every day, recording what I eat and what I did for exercise.

I hope you all are doing dandy on this Friday and have a fun and safe weekend.  I’ll be writing within the next day!  Here’s some pics of the diary!

To Weigh or Not to Weigh

If I was given the option I would say not to weigh.

Sort of.  I haven’t been written about my weight in a while but the weight loss is still a continuous struggle.  I’ve been losing and trying to eat healthy, but I feel like at times I just want to binge and then eat healthy for a week and then binge to celebrate.  I know how to control it, and how to make healthy celebrations but mentally I don’t want to do it that way.  It’s frustrating!  I’m still losing, but just not as fast as I would like, so what I did was make a short term goal list.  For instance, by Midterm I want to weigh this much, and so far that has been much more inspirational than looking at the main goal that seems so far away.

I’m really tying to get on track in every aspect of my life. Hooray!

Weightloss Challenge FAIL

My dad was out of town on a harley ride + my mom and I had a girl’s weekend= No one made their weight….

Well the only thing I can say is at least we’re all in it together. I need some inspiration for healthy eating because I’m really off track! Help!!

Survival

First of all I would like to take the time to say thank you for the people that started following me! I really appreciate it, and it makes me feel like maybe someone is actually reading what I write out there! So thank you!

So today was day one and guess what I SURVIVED!

It was a rough start because I got on the scale and it was more than I thought it was going to be. That’s never fun. It’s like one of those times that you think (and hope) the scale is broken so you get off and try again just to make sure….and the number still stares at you until you accept it. Yeah, that was me this morning.

I had coffee for breakfast, a salad for lunch, watermelon for a snack and then cajun chicken and grilled veggies for dinner. I also had 3/4 cup of pasta, but sue me. I was waaaaayyyy under my caloric goal so I was happy. I also went on a bike ride after supper. Man, I really need to get back in shape. When I left school I was able to run 2 miles every other day and now I can barely bike 8 miles! Oi vey. But I’m working on it and I am DETERMINED to not lose any money off of this challenge! It was hard enough coughing up that 100 dollars tonight to start it off. I’m getting that back!!

My day was pretty good. I received a lot of accolades at my internship today which made me feel like they appreciate having me. I don’t mean that in a sarcastic or rude way but sometimes interns can be more of a project rather than a help to a company, so I’m just glad I’m making their jobs a little easier and learning at the same time. This week I’m with Accounting and Development so a lot of numbers (little do they know I barely passed financial accounting), and I seem to be catching on quickly. Here’s a pic of my desk at the office!

I don’t have much else to say for today since it wasn’t too exciting other than keep an eye out for my blog tomorrow. I’m going on a “tavern pub pedal” throughout milwaukee so maybe I’ll write something a little funny while under the influence.

Catch ya on the flip side!
