Hey guys, yesterday was day three of my personal challenge :).
I stayed within my calorie limits and worked out about 600 calories worth..so that is good. Even though I stayed within my caloric limits, I went to Portillo's (who's from Chicago) and couldn't find ANYTHING healthy to eat. I ordered Chicken Noodle Soup (only had half--gave the rest to my dog, hehe) and a Veggie Croissant. This croissant was HUGE though..and although I ordered it without mayo, I doubt it was very healthy. Then again, much more healthy than the alternative of a burger or Italian beef :).
I am starting to notice that when I intake too much fat in one day, I can feel it in my stomach the next day. I don't know if anyone watched "The Biggest Loser" last night, but one of the girls was talking about how great she feels now that she only eats heathy food. She said she didn't want to go back to how she felt before and how she felt great now. I really identified with that and thought that it was really cool.
I also (tried) to do Jillian's 30 Day Shred..haha, I only made it like 10 minutes into the workout. I think I'm going to just do level one of the shred until I can go completely through and that will count as my first day. Same with the other levels.
Hope everyone has a great and healthy day!!

I got this idea from another member, Mizkymee, who actually got the idea from another Spark Person :). That's what I love about this site...the sharing of ideas. Basically, what you do is blog your fitness activity for the day as well as challenges or victories. I am going to start this process tomorrow.
A little background information because I am not sure that some people know this about me..
For Lent, I gave up cigarettes and alcohol. I just graduated college and was drinking and smoking a lot, and did not want to make these habits permanent. On March 9th, I decided I wanted to start working out and eating healthy. So far so good (a few binges, but much more working out..hehe).
If there's anyone who wants to partner up with me, I'd REALLY appreciate it. I don't have that one person that I talk to every day. The one person I did stopped responding to me and I'm not sure if she comes on here anymore. Let me know :)

I am going to be honest...I have tried controlling what I ate and how much I exercised for years. Sometimes I would go for awhile but then I would mess up...and a downward spiral seemed inevitable. NOT THIS TIME :)...
I have decided to learn from my mistakes. My mom called me yesterday and told me to come over/that she had picked up a bunch of food. Of course, I went over there and couldn't resist. I had been too good all day :(..haha, and I binged. Normally I would spend time beating myself up over it. Instead, I woke up and went to the gym.. :) and worked out extra. YAY..and thanks to Renee Stephen's IOWL podcast..I now know can auto-correct myself and think about how I would want to do the situation differently once the opportunity is presented again.
Hope everyone else is making progress as well! Hugs!!
