Did great today! Here are my results...(and my mood is a bit more positive as well!)
Nutrition: Stayed wthin range 1403
Fitness: Running 2 out of 3 completed! I need to do atleast 4 Jillian workouts by the time the week is over!
Motivation: Rewrote my cover letter specific to the job! Cleaning is in SERIOUS order this weekend!
On a POSITIVE note: Went for a looong run with Mike. I love friends that help motivate me to succeed.
I am GRATEFUL for: having supportive friends that want me to get a job and help me in any way possible. Oh yea, and Jersey SHore started last night...some ridiculous entertainment in my life!:P

I am starting this challenge for the third time now. I must say that these mini challenges have kept me on track for the most part, this whole summer. (Which is exactly what I needed! Thanks Laur!) I am starting a day late since my birthday was yesterday and I was in the Cape this past weekend. I am not stressing on the ice cream I ate or stuffed shrimp, I am going to move forward and continue to maintain this weight, (or even lose if possible!) I have two concerts coming up next week - one country one, Rascal Flatts - which are usually drinking fests but I am going to drink in moderation. So I have thought about my goals and here they are...
Nutrition - Stay within calorie range of 1400-1700 and track everything! (Even those little handfuls of cereal can add up!)
Fitness - Run 3x a week for atleast 30 min and a Jillian workout atleast 4x a week (I am going to get No More Trouble Zones)
Motivation - Here is where I always slack....SIGH -- I am going to go back to the cleaning/organizing things so I am ready come September (fingers crossed, I will have a job) So my goal is to clean and hopefully by the end of the 30 days my room will be organized. Also, to keep applying for jobs!
I will update tonight as to how I did, TUESDAY AUGUST 2 is my official first day of the EPC round 3.

So today I didn't track and I must say I haven't done that in a VERRYYY long time. I went out for an early birthday celebration at the casino and we ate at the buffet. (Hey, 3 out of 4 ladies not living my 'healthy lifestyle') needless to say...they choose the place. So for whatever reason, I felt compelled to 'treat' myself. Although, keeping Sparks in mind, I didn't let myself finish anything in its entirety. Even the small piece of salmon I took, I didn't finish. I really get so annoyed that I can't control myself fully in situations like these. I know living a healthy lifestyle can't work miracles but I really wish it would miraculously change my mindset about food. On a regular day I treat food like it is fuel for my body, when I am around unlimited, available, delicious food, I feel like I want to eat it all and portion size is forgotten about! Why is that??!! I want to be one of those people who "eats to live", however, I feel like I will always (at heart) have a "live to eat" mentality. Is there anyway to control this better? Am I the only one? Please share if you feel this way also.
Tomorrow I am going with my boyfriend to Cape Cod for the long weekend and my birthday (which is Monday). I am worried because I won't be exercising as much (or as hardcore I should say) and probably eating out for several or ALL my meals. Blah! I will indeed drink all my water which I think will help (atleast a little!) and my bf being the seafood fanatic that he is will probably want to eat it every meal. Which is okay because I don't eat the fried stuff, I like it broiled or grilled. But then again, I am nervous about tracking, etc. I mean I guess life has to go on through this and situations will come up but I get so anxious over it. (That is my perfectionist attitude taking over...) Like seriously, I am stressing over nothing I guess. But I don't want to get out of control, eat 'empty calories' or go over. Therefore I am promising myself to stay within range and drink all my water. I will exercise when I get back and definitely make it a point to run 3x next week. I just bought new shorts from Forever 21 and if I gain a pound (in my legs especially) I will no longer fit into them haha! No bueno! I have faith and will update you guys when I get back, also I will start the EPC challenge a day late but I am excited to see what Lauren (Sparkgirl32) has in store!
Ciao! Everyone have a GREAT weekend!!
