Sorry that was dramatic. I need you guys' help! I am in a wedding in the beginning of September and would love to shed about 10 pounds. I really was wondering what tips you guys had out there to curb cravings and ideas for healthy lunches I could eat in the cafeteria besides salad. I have a tendency to get bored with things quickly, but like to know my options. I also would love some healthy snack ideas besides fruit because honestly, the fruit here is never ripe, and the only fruit I eat is usually what I have at home. Also, I am so busy and wondered how everyone keeps theirselves exercising. I work out for 1.5 hours on Tuesdays, but other than that, don't seem to prioritize working out very well. I am by no means trying to crash diet, but I would love to slim down a little by then. Any motivational tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks everyone!

Ok, so this blog is about me getting back on track, which means I've been playing in all parts of the meadow that weren't on the yellow brick road (Hey, Dorothy- I'm over here!)
I've eaten mine and a friend's share of Christmas cookies, never passed down a glass of wine, or a taste of someone's sweet potato pie, and have gotten so beyond myself that I actually had to buy a new pair of jeans (See: Eat, Pray, Love) for my newly expanded muffin top (not the good kind of expansion).
So, I've finally (see other blogs for other misguidings) decided to commit to my first 10%. I currently weigh (this is an estimate), somewhere between 260 and 265 pounds and am waaaay off the beaten path. I have actually been attending a Zumba and Pilates class for the past month and a half, but it conveniently took a break between Christmas and New Years, and besides, it in no way stopped me from eating ALL THE OTHER CRAP I ate BEFORE the holidays.
So in closing, I am aiming for 27 pounds by June 3, which will put me close to my previous weight of 235.
I am going to continue attending my Zumba and Pilates class once a week, as well as, adding at least one-two days of activity at home.
I am going to eat better and focus on eating fruits and vegetables 5-7 times a day.
I am going to limit my juice intake and up my intake of water.
These are not resolutions, but instead, my goals for my own weight loss.

So for the past couple months I have had the biggest issue with CHOCOLATE you have ever seen!
Apparently chocolate has the power to jump out the wrapper and into my mouth whenever it is near me and I am just so sick of it!
But seriously, when I realized that I was getting a little thicker around the mid-section, I realized that maybe it was time for me to get my behind together!
I am a pretty self-motivated person, I really am, but apparently I am in a diet (what I'm eating, not calling this a "diet" by any means) and fitness rut.
I've been so hungry and eating a bunch of BS...and I've been lazy as sin. And I really just don't know why.
I really think that my job has been making me unhappy. That's too much for a blog to discuss at once, but let's just say, I'm not where I want to be right now.
I've been researching and applying for new jobs with not much luck, and I feel so stuck, it just makes me depressed thinking about it.
I'm kinda sick of people asking me so many questions or judging whether it looks I lost weight or not, because it just make me feel like donkey poop. And I don't like that I can tell I've gained weight in pictures, or that I feel more tired, or just feeling not like myself.
Which is exactly how I feel, like I look in the mirror and don't know who I am.
Sorry this is getting so deep but honestly I've completely lost my footing and I'm just trying to get back on track.
I was able to be so positive before but it feels like I'm slipping away from my real self.
At any rate, I'm trying to get it together and I hope you all are doing great!

When you're bored?
So I definitely am an emotional eater. It's something I've come to grips with in my life and am taking day to day.
I can really have a handle on it at home because I stock my own fridge, but at work it's another story.
When I get bored, I have the bad habit of sticking food in my mouth.
I really don't understand how it got there most times, Lol.
Seems like I open the hatch, and food somehow jumps in my mouth.
So my question to you fellow Sparkers is, "What do you do to keep yourself from eating when you're bored?"
This really is an issue at work, "So what do you do when you're bored at work?".
Sound off! Thanks, love ya, byee!

Ok I could definitely tell, but I didn't know for sure until I pulled on my pants and they pulled across my thighs that I definitely gained some weight.
Sigh. I kinda figured I was overenjoying the summer!
With all the eating out, and not planning ahead, and partying, and drinking (not that I drink ALCOHOL! lol)...I kinda figured this would happen.
I'm not gonna be all depressed about it, but instead am going to REPRESS all my negative emotions and convert them into positive energy to get the pounds off again.
Lol I knew I was getting nervous of the scale for a reason!
But I'm back fellow Sparkfriends! And I extend a hearty high five to all of you! :). Because whether you've been kicking butt or falling off the bandwagon, you're still here, trying your best to do something great for yourself.
So I'm not going to sit here and cry and eat a bag of potato chips (cuz boy that would be so easy!).
Instead I'm going to pick up where I left off, really try and use my workout calendar (guess who worked out yesterday!), track what I eat, pack healthy meals for work, and dust myself off and try again!
