Guess I'll have to work out tomorrow. I plan to do it around 1 or 2 pm, with enough time to flex my schedule since I don't have class until 5:40 (believe me, not the norm.) I didn't work out today because (segue into excuses) I didn't wake up till past noon today, then sat around until 2, when I left to go make my purchase at work. Then, immediately after, I had to go to a concert on campus for my humanities class.
Long story short, I was starving by the time the concert was over. 90 minutes of jazz causes some serious fantasies about all the food you can eat. I almost caved and went to Chipotle (my addiction) but I refrained cause my mom was supposed to (and did) make tacos tonight. What's worse was that during the concert, she texted to ask me to get tortillas from the store.
Grocery store. Me hungry. Not a good idea.
But I prevailed! I didn't get a cart or basket, and limited myself to what I could carry. Such a GREAT idea! I got the taco mix, two packs of tortillas, some pasta sauce to make a light pizza later this week, two Amy's frozen meals, and two bars of dark chocolate. Whew! So tempted to get more, but I was ready to get home and eat. So I had Amy's Spinach Lasagna, which was only 250 cal, and some dark chocolate. So that way, I had enough calories left in the day for the dinner in store.
By the time I was done eating, it was 6:30 and my gym closes at 7. My goal is to go four times this week, so the plan is to go the next four days, so I don't have to work out on the days I work (Friday, Saturday, Sunday.) Hopefully this will work out (feel free to laugh at my lame jokes.) Looking forward to tomorrow!

Okay, its a great week finished out. I stayed withing my ranges, I didn't cave to temptation (which there was a lot!), and, most importantly, I feel like I've been successful. That goes such a long way that it blows my mind. The challenge for me is to try and keep my positive outlook, and go at it only one day at a time. I can't stress out about what I might/maybe/possibly do in a week/month/year. I have long term goals, but to get it, I follow a set pattern. I plan my meals as much as I can, stay within my goals, and be positive. The positive bit I have to stress so hard. My anxiety can get way too bad if I give it an inch.
Now, as far as fitness, that's lacking. Tomorrow is a good day for me to start out with a plan-- I'm going to go buy some clothes from work tomorrow (extra discount day, yay!!!!!) and that's at 9:30 am. I don't have anything else to do until 4, when I go to a mandatory concert for class. So my goal is to go to the gym between them and do some sort of cardio for 20-30 minutes (depending on how my knee injury feels), then do a series of arm/back exercises. I'm just recovered from being sick, so my promise to myself is to listen to my body and not push crazy hard. Now that doesn't mean wussing out, but if something is too much I won't push past it too much. Baby steps!
Here's to hoping all you guys reading this are vizualizing and planning. The biggest downfall I have is to not plan things, or just go with the flow. That hasn't worked. Ever. If I do this, this will.

I'm ready to give it another go. Positive is the name of this game, and I already feel like a winner. Its not hard to take it one day at a time, see my success in numbers. Though I'm just recovering from a lung infection, I'm sooo ready to get active and treat my body right. I have a goal in mind, I have more than enough time to achieve it. I will remain true to myself, and that means loving myself-- all of myself. If I am a woman of my word, I'll love myself more. A good start so far!

So I somehow survived the first semester of college, but my health is a bit out of whack. I gained the dreaded Freshman Fifteen and miserably tried to juggle a part time job, classes, and my anxiety about both. It was a slippery slope of avoidance and ignoring the real issues at heart. So...here's to really trying. Not just saying I am, but really giving myself a chance.
I always stutter step on the way to being healthy because I always find one excuse that will convince me that I'm not worth it or it will be too hard. I believe that to succeed I just have to do it. No excuses. I refuse to argue with the whiny toddler in my head trying to get her own way.
I just stocked up on healthy food and am moving back into my dorm today, classes start tomorrow! Here's to a wonderful new start!
