I completely fell of track. I tried to get back on track last week and failed. Or maybe I just didn't try hard enough. Honestly- I don't feel tracking calories right now. But I will. I will go through the motions until it becomes part of my day again. This will still be my year and I will stick with this Biggest Loser Challenge to the end. This weekend, I managed to get my food mostly under control- some unplanned snacking but it was mostly crackers and prunes. However, I cooked last night and planned my meals and I think I can really get back on my feet this week.
On to this week's challenges! This week I'm going to try my best to get all possible points! By the way, I'm grateful that all of you are here to keep me accountable- thank you
Nutrition: Plan your meals the week/night before.
Are you an emotional eater? Do you eat for comfort? This week try and plan all of your meals for the day the night before. You may find that you stick to your eating regime better that way when you have a plan!
Fitness: Do an hour more of exercise in total on ThFS, than you did total MTW.
Did you do 60 minutes total of fitness minutes on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday? (20 minutes a day.) Shoot for a total of two hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. (40 minutes a day)
Not at that point in your fitness yet? Try incorporating more stretching into your workouts to make up the difference. Any movement helps :-)
Motivation: Make a new Spark friend, join a new Spark Interest group.
Get more involved in Spark People, find someone new that inspires you and add them as a friend, they may add you back.
Bonus: Take a multivitamin each day.
Get some nutrients in that you may be missing by taking a multi vitamin. Can't swallow pills or hate the taste of medicine? Try a chewable vitamin instead (like your Team Leader does) :-P

Soooo I've been MIA for the past week... because...
2. Felt like s***
3. Depressed and unmotivated.
Although I rather sulk in my misery right now, I know that it would not help and it's not good to wallow in self-pity. My calories have been out of control... so I'm going to try to stop this NOW. Tomorrow I will wake up and WORK OUT. I will plan my meals tonight and stick to that tomorrow. No sweets this week and no going over my calories. I'm going to try to kick my own butt for the rest of February to prove to myself, that YES I could do this!!!!
Week 5 challenges:
Sugar My diet plan is not to diet- so sweet treat are allowed in moderation. However, I also have to be honest with myself- I have been out of control for the past week. I think I need at least a week without any sweets to reset my body. I'm craving large amounts of sugars and carbs... this is not good and needs to stop. In addition to not eating sweets this week, I will also not add sugar to my coffee.... this might be difficult.
Stretching This is a great idea- I'll add stretching to my mornings!
This is what I've been lacking this past week- here are the three things I want to accomplish before June 2013:
1. Get below 240lbs- I have been stuck between 255 and 276 for the past two years and I think once I get below 255 it will be a HUGE thing for me.
2. Fit into the Eddie Bauer pants I ordered last year...
3. Start working out regularly.
I'm sure this blog has been a downer... but here are actually some postives:
1. As of this weekend, I'm down 13 inches since the beginning of January.
2. Also, I'm down about 10 lbs
3. and I can fit into the size XXL undies I bought at Target back in December... I don't know about anyone else, but I think Target has super cute undies!!
Now, to end my super long blog update- here is the motivational board I never posted:

All day I was complaining about how hungry I am- even though I was eating reasonable sized portions of food... after dinner and freshly baked croissants (courtesy of my youngest brother) I STILL felt hungry!!!
Just now I'm realizing that I am definitely "physically" full, but the fake hunger is coming from somewhere else... this is definitely the feeling I get when I need to binge. This feeling is so incredibly strong and I am having a hard time explaining it... luckily my boyfriend is here to help me get through this- just needed to get this out.

Let's start this out by saying I didn't feel like posting this today... I'm in a horrible mood which makes be believe my TOM is coming up Also, I'm pissed about only losing 0.2 lbs. However, I do realize what I need to change this week/ for the coming month:
1. Calories will be lowered to 1600, I kept going back and forth on this but I've gotten to the point where I truly am satisfied at this range and usually the extra calories come from less healthy food such as sweets. Which are TOTALLY okay, but not everyday. My Saturday's will be my "reload" day- to start my metabolism back up. Maybe around 2,000 calories?
2. Exercise... I cannot eat 1800 calories a day and not work out and expect to see a nice number on the scale! I will do at least 20 minutes of the elliptical, 3 days a week in addition to weight training.
Anyway- here's the fun stuff:
POUNDS LOST: 7.4
INCHES LOST: 9
My goal next month is to lose 10lbs- however, if I do not make this goal it is okay as long as I lost something. I'm TRYING to be patient and positive... Also, I decided to post some progress pictures. The first one is from last year, March:
The second photo is from today (my hair is horrible and my forehead is huge- just worked out before):
I'm not sure if I could see a difference.. I mean I think it's only about 10lbs between the pictures. Okay, now onto February!!!
