It comes from Shrek 2. Every time the fairy Godmother gets stressed out she eats. So do I.
My progress on exercise is awesome . I worked out 6 days last week. I can feel the flab becoming muscle. I really like going to work out with my trainer, and I carve out time if for nothing else in my day, to get in a work out.
What I can't get a consistent hold on however is my eating. I know what I should be eating. I have a pantry and fridge full of good stuff to maintain a healthy lifestyle. the problem is, the least little bit of stress and I find myself eating anything I can find. Especially at work. I dont have a desk job, or a regular 9 - 5. I work at a restaurant, and when stress hits a high I reach for what ever is deep fried in the building and turn my great workout and day of progress into a day overloaded in fat and calories. I can't stay motivated. What to do? I keep trying everyday, and I know that eventually that the whole thing will come together for me, but I need tips on how to stay away from a guilt wrecked day of stressful eating. I need to learn how to control my mind when something goes wrong and stay away from the cheese fries, and drinking empty calories at the end of a bad night. I keep thinking its just going to click,, but its not, my knowledge of what I should be doing is being over ridden by how I am feeling... I am frustrated... Well off to the gym and we will see how this day progresses.

Most people hate Mondays.. I don't. I love them Monday is my day off. It is usually the only day I have to really clean the house, run all of my errands, and relax. It is also my best workout day. I see my trainer , and then in the evening I hit the treadmill for a while, and then I have a hot bath! Monday is also the one night of the week, I actually get to spend with my family. My husband and I work alot at night, and therefore our daughter is usually with a grandma of some form. On Monday I spend the evening with them both, and I actually cook.
The goal one day is to finish school and finally start a career, but until then I will enjoy my Mondays while everyone else has to go work!!

A quick story.
I work at a restaurant. And the other day I finally came to the realization the some people just don't understand the term dieting, or understand the term healthy lifestyle.. So a couple comes in , They are not too overweight. The lady proceeds to tell me that she is dieting and would like a diet coke. She then decided that it would be less calories for her to get a loaded baked potato over Fries, and that putting cheese on her salad would be too much, and then turned around and asked me for 3 sides of ranch..... I can't decide if she really had a lack of knowledge, or wanted to look like she was dieting by getting diet coke.... And these kind of scenarios happen all the time where O work. Another couple comes in ( they ask for me every week), and here is their order: 2 waters, they split the salmon, and get no butter on their veggies, no marinade on their fish, and ask for balsamic with no cheese, and no bread and no croutons. This couple knows what being restaurant smart really is. I asked them how they do it everyweek, and they told they have become accustomed to living a healthy lifestyle.
Ok so I am somewhere in between, which I actually like being in this position. I know what to eat and what not to eat, my problem is that When I eat what I shouldnt and then I continue to do it for days on out.. I can't make it more than a week living a healthy lifestyle with food anyway. I am not saying I want to do this 24 /7, but what I am saying is I want to be able to do this week in and week out, and have a few precious bad treats every once in a while.
Wow that wasn't the point and this turned out really long. My point was what was the first lady thinking. Is she really dieting in her mind, or is she lacking healthful knowledge? As for me ,, I 'll keep trying with the knowledge I have.....

So every year a bunch of girls have a little weight loss competition to see who can lose the biggest percentage of weight.
This year, although I have noticed others gain weight instead of lose weight, no one wanted in.. Except for one person. So this is what we have decided to do. Tomorrow we are going to weigh ourselves. then we are going to write it on a piece of paper. also on the piece of paper we are going to write an amount of money we are going to pay the person if they come closer to the goal than we do. On October 15 the we are going to revisit the pieces of paper and collect our money !!
I actually think this will keep me super accountable at work, b/c we work together all the time. My next step is to see if she will go work out with me, and maybe join spark people. She is self conscious to the point of not working out in public however, but I think I may have a really buddy though to keep me out of trouble!! Lets see how it goes..
