1/30/14 - Speed Bump

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Went to lunch with Brogan at blue door. Insane Juicy and fries threw me over my limit. I'll be over again Saturday and Sunday, so I need to get back on track tomorrow. I've lost some weight already though, which rocks.

  Congrats on the weight loss. Sometimes you just have to have fries!

1/29/14 - Managing

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

I was under my calorie limit yesterday, by a lot, which rocks. I've got rugby weight lifting tonight, also good. I'm concerned about the social after, which is at a bar, meaning I'll probably wind up eating and drinking. My plan is to try to be responsible and watch what I'm eating as I eat.

    Hope you did well at the bar. It's good to hang out with friends. Moderation is the key.

  Bars can be difficult for me as well. Now, if I order a meal, I get a box and put half of it in there to take home or I just order an appetizer to share. That way I don't eat everything on my plate and feel guilty later. Good luck!

1/28/2014 - I'm back

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

So I've been off this site for a while, and things have changed.

Some things have changed for the better. I've graduated law school, joined rugby, come out to my friends and family, and quit smoking (last cigarette was on 1/5/14). I'm pretty thrilled about all of these things.

One thing that has changed for the worse is that my weight has gone back up again. This is in part due to laziness, but is also because I consciously decided that I would eat whatever without feeling guilty while trying to quit.

I've got the workout buddies, albeit not at my gym; I've got the motivation. Hopefully this time I'll be able to stick with it.

3/15/2011 - I don't know how I feel about today

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

So, It was a busy day.
Class, which went well.
Rushing to the leasing office of an apartment my roommate and I want to look at, only to find out it was closed.
Rushing into work to grab my paycheck, which was $120 less than I thought.
Stopping by my parent's house to check in on my siblings.
Rushing to the doctor to get some tests done and get a few vaccinations updated.
Rushing back to school, where I had 2 granola bars and some baked lays for breakfast/lunch.
Meeting with my writing professor, who cleared up my questions but raised some more as well.
Going back to my parent's house to hang out with my folks for a bit.
Going home to work out and do homework, which turned into working out and then watching the West Wing for 3 hours.

It's been interesting, but the day has left me tired, without any food in my stomach, and with significantly less work done on my brief than I would like.

    Answer: keep a box of Cliff Bars at work... I have a fridge in my office and buy Annies' Burritos to put in the microwave... I like her fruit snacks too... I have protien drinks that I make with vanilla almond milk in the morning and those are YUMMY! Also, a cache of your favorite nuts or trail mix will keep in a desk drawer. If you eat (snack really) on healthier stuff during the day, you'll eat less at night.
Your day sounds a lot like my "work" days... I teach writing at a community college... only 3-4 days a week, but those can be long ones!

3/14/2011 - Crashing

Monday, March 14, 2011

Well, I got some homework done, but at the cost of falling asleep last night at about me about 4 hours before I had to get up again. Needless to say, today has been brutal. The upshot is that for the rest of the week, I have time to work out, get homework done, clean the apartment before vacation, and do anything else that comes up.

I gained 1.6 lbs last week, which puts me .4lbs over where I should be today. I plan on remedying that this week as I work out as much as I can. Unfortunately, other than writing in my fitness journal, which is this blog entry, I'm not going to get any of my goals done.
