I'm feeling pretty good about staying mostly on track. At lesat tracked all weekend. I don't want any more free days because for me FREE equals FAT. I have had almost no progress in a very long time (scale-wise), and I want to lose AT LEAST 10 lbs, but I'd like to lose 15.
However, my yoga instructor swears that I have gotten more toned. I think so, too, but I also think it's barely noticeable. We'll see when it gets warmer and the clothes come off.
I was annoyed at myself today because I missed yoga. I'm committed to making up the day on Saturday.

Last night I made 8 breakfasts and froze them. I made 3 tupperwares of chicken, rice, and broccoli (219 cals each!). Tonight I plan to make some salmon, cous-cous, and asparagus meals.
Yesterday eating was okay.
Today, my co worker brought in the BEST blueberry coffeecake. But, otherwise I'm doing ok.

Yesterday went downhill fast. We went out for lunch for my co-workers birthday, and seriously nothing on the menu was less than 700 calories. I thought, ďI'm not spending $15 to have a 700-calorie salad that will just leave me hungry.Ē So I decided to have my favorite anyway, a buffalo chicken sandwich, and just watch myself the rest of the day (it was also grilled, not fried, which is good).
But on the way home I ate a ton of marshmallows, which left me feeling like Iíd already ďlost,Ē for the day even more totally, so I ate chips. I ended up being anxiety-ridden and house-cleaning, and then decided to eat my comfort food, Annieís shells and white cheddar (again, with the feeling like I had ďlostĒ for the day). Iím hoping to make it up cal-wise today, but stillÖ
Iím really frustrated with myself because I really want to get back on track, both with calories AND healthy eating. I donít want to have my food consist of chemicals and junk and carbs and packaged products. I know itís a will-power and a decision-making thing, Iím just so good at telling myself ďjust oneĒ which I never actually do.
I have this idea of making sure I am just overwhelmed with good, healthy food, so I have no excuse to eat junk, but so far I am fitting it in anyway.
I have no one to blame but myself and only I can take control.

I haven't been on Spark lately with Passover. I have been keeping mentally aware of what I eat, but not having the accountability of tracking makes it easy to be bad, especially at night. I have been keeping up with yoga, though. Now I want to get really serious, since it is only about four months to my wedding, and where I am weight-wise in about two months is where I have to stay until then. I don't think my body has changed much, and I want it to, at least a bit.
I need to practice balancing on each leg with my knee "locked." I need to lift weights to get some more strength in my arms and chest. I need to get more sleep.
I have a referral for an X-ray and to see a podiatrist. Hopefully, my foot won't derail me too much.

There is not much new to report. I think I am going to go back to a natural-only diet for a few weeks, starting next Monday (I have a sleepover Friday night that is going to be all about cheese, so no point in starting yet). I am trying to be more determined about taking fish for lunch and making breakfast at home. I have two really nummy things that I make with Ezikiel wraps and English muffins (ask me for the recipe!).
My yoga teacher said that I look thinner (Iím not sure I agree). Iím a clean 140 on the scale but Iím guessing itís a teensy bit lower due to some muscle growth (Iím optimistic).
I got a bit upset because I think my broken bone in my foot is re-broken, but my yoga teacher said that even if I have to stay off my foot I can still do the yoga. That is a big relief.
I feel like I have so much to do for the wedding, and no idea how to start working on it.
