I am dead tired and am going to take a quick nap (had to be at work at 6am this morning and was working until midnight last night). But, guess what? I am down 2 pounds this morning! Woohoo! I am so glad! I am going to stay in my calorie range today too! I just wanted to share.

I just completed my calorie count for yesterday and whoa! No wonder I am up 6 lbs for the last week! Yesterday, I ate 2900 calories! Confession: I was craving sugar and ate frosting. How sick am I?! Okay, so stop beating myself up since I can't change the past. I am looking at my calories for today and have somehow really front loaded my day. (I had to be at work at 5:30 this morning and for two more days, and I have another work thing to do tonight at 10:30p, but that is no excuse). So, I have planned the rest of my day out for today and will stick to that. I will be within my calorie range. Also, I am going to the gym tonight at 7p for my Zumba class. I think I might stay a little after to do some walking.
I have always been on a diet and I inherited my mom's habit of saying, "I'll start tomorrow." Well, as I was on my way to work this morning, I was thinking, why start tomorrow? Don't I want to be healthy today? It seemed so clear and yet it was something I have been saying to myself over and over. This is it. I need to get my act together and go after what I want. It starts today.
P.S. Did anyone catch the "Eat less, Move more" skit on Mad TV? I found it on Youtube and it made me laugh. It is so realistic, yet the solution of weight loss is so obvious. I felt like the character in my past!

On Sunday, I will be completing my 4th 5K this year. I am so stoked that I have stuck to the resolution, even though my friends haven't. I had about 4 friends that were supposed to do these with me, but I have been at most of them by myself. So, I think that is something to be proud of! I only have 8 more to go for the year!
I have been all over with my eating habits. I have allowed my stress and procrastination to get the best of me. That cannot happen anymore. Today I will start anew. I am within my calorie range and do not need to eat anything else. In fact, I am not hungry. I do need to drink some h2o though. I will let you know how it goes this weekend. My mom is joining me this time, how nice huh?
I leave for Vegas tomorrow for work and really don't want to have to go through with all the crazy food. If I can get it to just one dining out experience, that would be wonderful!

I suppose I really need to realize that I am going to have relapses. This weekend was a not the best choices weekend. I felt quite a bit of stress, feel bloated (that TOM), and have sugar cravings like you would not believe!
I did much better today, was about 2000 calories. That is not very good, but based upon what I have done over the last few days, it is wonderful! I need to look at the positive. Tomorrow I will aim for 1500-1600 calories. By Friday, I hope to be averaging about 1300-1500 again.
I have to remember....THIS IS A PROCESS! I will learn from my setbacks. I need to give in to my cravings if it is something I really want. Otherwise, I will eat other things as substitutions and overeat when I could have just had that one chocolate chip cookie. It would have been less calories than what I ended up consuming.
Live and Learn, right? Right!
