Well today I am starting to make plans to do a better job. I was always going out to lunch because I never felt like making it. Today I went out and bought a new insulated lunch bag and I got a smaller one specifically so i am limited to how much I can take, it looks like a purse too lol. I also bought several small containers so I can take the right portions of stuff and not too much. And while I was there I bought some healthy stuff for today's lunch. I'm eating it now and it's really good, and given my calorie range, a lunch of 650 cals is not bad. Even though it's a bit on the high side, I'm eating healthier stuff than I have in a while. I've been on a fast food craze lately and that has got to stop.
Later I'm going grocery shopping and getting lots of healthy stuff for home, and i will also be cleaning and organising my kitchen so I have one less excuse to cook. I think I posted this on one of my team message boards so I apologize for the repetition.
Right now though, I won't really be concentrating on my eating so much, just keeping it in mind. For this week I am concentrating on getting organised and limiting my excuses to not be healthy. I will be packing my gym bag and keeping it in my car as well. I would love some other suggestions too.
When I was getting my lunch today, I bought some mini bags of popcorn and I'm very excited to try them. I got flavored ones lol, salt and cracked pepper and butter lime. I think the lime will be really good ^_^
Anyway, I think that's all for today. Hope everyone has a great week!

I, Roxy, promise to be an active team member and to support my friends in their journey to a healthier, happier life; to give what help and advice I can; to set an example by following my own advice; to work my hardest and ask for help when I need it, which will be a lot ^_^ ; to be honest when I make a mistake and to try not being so hard on myself and to be proud of that which I accomplish. I will make myself a better person this year in as many ways as possible.

It's been a little while since I blogged. A few things have happened. I went up to my parents new cottage last weekend and had a blast. We went boating and fishing and all kinds of fun stuff. Unfortunately the water was still a bit too cold for swimming until the last day when I didn't have time. I won't be able to go up again for a few weeks because I have a class on Saturdays. It is so beautiful up there, my parents really lucked out, they have a large property, a nice 3 bedroom cottage with a big kitchen and bathroom, a large wrap around deck, a large dock, and it's all on a really nice lake. It isn't too big so it warms up fairly quickly and it's all cottages, no campgrounds or anything on the lake, so it's not busy, it's nice and quiet. There's no internet or even cell reception or anything because it's all surrounded by hills so starting in July I won't be on spark on the weekends lol.
I started my online nutrition course, it's my general elective for school, and on my first assignment I got 90% when the average was 63% lol. It is a very basic course though so I expect to know most of the material already, I do hope I learn some new things though ^_^
I met someone online and we've been chatting. He wants to meet in person, and he seems like a nice guy, but he seems a little clingy. We've only been chatting for a week and he's already talking about wanting to get together and cuddle while watching a movie. We started talking on Monday or Tuesday of last week, and I was busy on Saturday and Sunday so I didn't talk much to him. Sunday afternoon , around 4ish, he sends me a message saying he's sad because he thinks I don't want to meet him, well now I don't think I do. We haven't even met yet and he's already starting to act like we're dating, and he's texts me about 20 times a day. I'm beginning to worry I might have to change my phone # because it just seems like he may be stalker material. Hopefully not though.
I haven't been doing so well with my eating in the hot weather. I keep wanting ice cream and stuff. I also was rushed with breakfast and didn't make a very good choice, my lunch however is much better and I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do for dinner. I'm going to decide before I leave for home so I don't go through the drive-thru again. I will be making some plans for this week tonight, so that tomorrow when I go shopping, I can buy all good things that will hopefully keep me on track this week. Any suggestions for healthy snacks to keep on hand would be good. Especially stuff that is good on the go.
I have revised my goal. I'd been hoping to lose 100 lbs this year but of course that isn't going to work now as I haven't lost any. I have reset my goal at 50 lbs by the end of the year. That's 10 lbs per month with room several not so good weeks. I still have my goals in mind, new dance shoes at 10 lbs, and a new digital camera at 30 lbs. I haven't decided on a reward for 50 yet.
Also, I have made a discovery, a few weeks ago I was having a real problem with chest pain especially when breathing heavy from exercise. So I did an experiment, cus I know my doctor would just say take it easy you probably strained something. So for a couple weeks, I was taking allergy meds and I took a couple weeks off martial arts and slowed down the dancing, well it worked, no more pain. So I took another week off exercise and stopped taking the allergy meds, I've started feeling the pain again. I am going to make an appoitnment sometime this week or next and tell him what I did. He'll probably send to me for allergy testing and stuff then, because right now only Benadryl works for me and I can't be always taking that, it makes me tired. So I am hoping for something that will help, some other kind of allegry meds, cus reactine, claritin, aerius and every other OTC non-drowsy meds that I have tried aren't helping me. I've spent a rediculous amount of money this year trying to find something that works.
Sorry for going on for so long lol. I've had an eventful few weeks. And certainly busy with work and school.
Hope everyone in the US had a good Memorial Day weekend!

Im so not having a good day. First off, my neck hurts, has been for some time but its quite bad today. This morning I started one of my summer classes and it went ok except it was kinda long and I was in pain. I was getting a headache by the end from my neck. I went to the grocery store, where I work, to pick up some advil and a few things and to check my work schedule. I had applied for a leave of absence for the summer because Im working a full time co-op and i have 3 classes to pick up before i go back in the fall. They said no because I only work one shift a week, i figured ok, itll be easy to replace me and its for school so theyd say yes. No, I was so wrong, so the manager and i agreed that i would work one shift every 3 weeks, which is ok but Im in pain today so Im a little peeved anyway. Ive decided im going to get a massage for my neck. Normally, I wouldnt even consider it because of my insecurity and the whole touching me thing, but right now it hurts enough that Ill do anything. Unfortunately, i cant find a place open today that has any appointments still open. So Im gonna have to wait, then also next week Im going to see my doctor because my allergies are driving me nuts and none of the over the counter meds I usually take are working for me this year. A couple years ago I had to stop taking reactine because it stopped working, now the other one i was taking isnt working anymore. Benadryl is the only one that works and it makes me tired so i cant be always taking it.
Ok, sorry, that was my rant. I just needed to vent a little today. Hopefully, my day will be better now, and hoepfully your all having a great weekend!

I am having a rough day. Not in terms of stuff happening though, I just feel crappy. One of those depressing days where you dont want to do anything, can't muster up the energy to exercise or cook and so end up eating fast food or delivery. I'm really fighting the urge to leave work and go home. I'm having trouble dealing with people right now. So overall, I'm not doing well today.
I don't know what I'm going to do to keep myself on track today. I haven't been doing well lately either. I haven't lost any weight since February! I've been staying pretty much the same though so it could be worse.
I can't even get myself excited about my birthday next week. I'm hoping this is just going to be a one day funk. I'd really appreciate any tips to get motivated though, or ways to just keep myself away from the drive thru.
Hope everyone is having a better day than me!
