Ready to make the most of this day

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Im ready to go out there and make the most of today! Gotta set some goals of what to get done and do it. For any movie lovers out there, I went to go see "the lucky one" last night and it was SOOO good! Go see it! Its definetly worth the money in my opinion. And Zack Effron isnt bad to look at for 2 hours either :) Another thing, I got my new Nike free running shoes in the mail and I LOVE them. they are very comfortable and lightweight. Now I just gotta keep that running up! My friends and I are going to sign up for this team marathon. We each run 5 miles except one person runs a little longer. It gives me a fun goal to work twords :)

    the hunger games was good.. I read the books so I really liked the movie but my dad didnt and he said he didnt care for it bc he thought ti had too much violence. I didnt think it was that bad though. Thanks about the race! Its one that I use to do in high school with my cross country team so it will be nice for me to be able to do it again

    The fiance and I were debating going to see a movie tonight. I wanted to see Hunger Games but the 730 show was sold out and the next wasn't till 1045! Doesn't quite work when he has to be up at 530 am... but i was looking up the ratings for the other movies and The Lucky One had some good things said about it. I may have to see if some girl friends of mine want to go. :)

And good luck with the team marathon! Striving towards goals, I find, helps so much in the whole losing weight challenge. Best of luck to you and your friends!

didnt make it

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Last night I had to study for a test= Really bad urge to revert to old habits. It was 11:30 and I had already eaten more calories than I wanted to but I was determined to stay within my range. Then the practice quizzes shut down before I could do them and I realized I hadnt memorized the drugs I was suppose to and THEN I went on an eating binge. I just kept stuffing pretzels into my mouth trying to relieve my stress. Talk about emotional eating. I think its disgusting that I try and use food to calm myself down but its the truth that I still have this problem. I guess the important thing to realize is that I AM trying to change this habit and I DO realize that the eating is NOT what made me learn the material. Studying more was what made me learn the material. I already put the extra calories on todays list of food eaten, so today I will eat less to make up for it and go running. Ugh such a dissapointment but I wont give up!

    I like your attitude. And it's good that your recognizing what is triggering your bad eating. You messed up yesterday, but yesterday is over, so today you just keep moving forward.

Im back already

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

So..I lied. I couldn't wait till next week to blog. I didn't realize how much blogging really helps me stay on track and let off steam. Instead of eating, I can just blog. So I have been weighing myself every day and last week that was great and addicting bc everyday I saw the numbers going down. But now they are staying the same or slightly going up. Its not something I should be doing, bc my weight is going to fluctuate everyday, even within the same day. I need to just weigh myself once a week instead. I need to remember to be patient. Thats the problem is wanting instant results. But, this is going to take a long time. Its alright though, Id rather do it this way than starve myself and only stick to my plan for about 3 days.

    Blogging helps me, too. I am addicted to weighing daily, but I have to stop that and weigh once a week.. It takes too long to drop a half pound or pound so that it doesn't show much from day to day unless it's up from water retention or constipation. Soo.. I have to wait, too. I hate that!!

So I have had a strong last week, but I think Im being too obsessed with it. I dont want to burn out, so I am going to try and not focus so much on it this week. I have so much other work to do I have been on sparkpeople more than facebook! haha Im not getting any real work done. So anyways, this week I will still track my calories, but Im going to try and hold off with everything else just so I can focus on school more, and so I dont burn out. Ill write another blog when I weigh in next week. Have a good week everyone!

    I think you're just super proud of yourself! :) :) :) You got it under control! Make a to-do list! Maybe try planning meals ahead using the tracker (for the day or the week ahead or whatever) to save time later. Good luck with school!

whew, made it through the weekend!

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Well I made it through my first weekend! ya I think the weekends are going to be the hardest, just because there is so much temptation to eat bad things, and I have more time on my hands. But I made it through! Im really happy with the results I have had this week so far. I know that some of it has to be water weight, but I've already lost about 6 pounds since last Sunday when I freaked out bc I had gained another 3 pounds. Even if it is just water weight, its a step in the right direction. It feels good to see those numbers going down! My official 1 week weigh in will be Tuesday, and Im excited to see what the scale says then :) Also, tomorrow I am suppose to get my new running shoes in the mail, so hopefully next week even more weight will come off once i start running!
