Well, I succeeded in keeping to my calories yesterday. I was emotionally hungry last night at work, I did end up eating a bag of kettle cooked chips (totally worth it), and since my calories had been around 850 or so until then, I could "afford" it. I did the workout yesterday, and I will be doing it today as well.
I planned out a healthy new recipe from Sparkrecipes.com, and did a "makeover." It is creamy italian chicken in the crock pot, with fat free cream cheese, brown rice, veggies... sounded good. It smells even better! I planned out a generous portion, 2/3 c. brown rice and 1/3 of the mixture. Yum!
I feel pretty motivated today. I quit my job (today was my last day), and now I am free to be a home maker for a couple of months until school, and another part-time job. I will use all this free time to keep up with my cooking, cleaning, exercise, and health measures. I hope they will become an ingrained habit by the time work and school get in the way.

Well, I have been consistent in exercise for about a week, so that's a small win for me! I am going to set a goal for myself. You are my accountability.
I WILL do the "30 Day Shred" for the next 30 days at least, every day. It is only 20 minutes, and I KNOW I can do it! I did it Tuesday and today. Today will be my official "Day 1."
I WILL keep eating healthy and keep my cocktails down to a minimum to achieve my health goals.
I WILL stay within my calorie range at least 6 out of the 7 days, and I won't go hog wild on the weekends anymore!
I WILL cook healthy new recipes from this website and others; I will branch out and try new things and work on bringing whole foods, whole grains, and health into my family.
Consistency is key for me, and I WILL strive to keep consistent in my efforts, both diet-wise and exercise-wise!

This has never happened to me! I have been eating great! For 3 days and exercising longer, plus super hard the past few days. NOTHING. No results. I am super sore and annoyed and the same weight. WTF?!

..and when I am bad, I'm horrid!
I am having a rough day. I exercised, stuck to my diet, and have been using the Wii Fit for about a week now. I also got Jillian Michael's fitness game for the Wii. I have been walking outside, too. I don't see any change, and I actually gained a little weight. I went out to eat twice over the weekend, but no gain from Saturday. I kept almost to my calories for Sunday despite going out, and still managed to gain some more.
I am so discouraged. I feel pretty depressed today. My calves are sore, I have been doing more workouts than usual, eating right about 80% and yet weight loss eludes me!

My turkey burger last night was DELICIOUS. I must have more. I am going to the store almost exclusively for ground turkey. Holly, thanks for the tip: I will definitely freeze pre-made patties up instead of chunks of meat, as I normally do.
I am a third of the way through Michaels' book, and I am not overly impressed, but there is some interesting new info in there about what kind of oxidizer you are, depending on what you like to eat and whatnot.
I made it through yesterday. I had a nice sized glass of sweet sparkling wine and a Captain and Diet, but still made it under my calorie limit (narrowly). I am looking forward to making today even healthier, but not having any cocktails. In my defense, I blame my co-workers at the bar! But I did stop myself and not succomb to peer pressure like I normally do. I am easily talked into diet failure. I can talk myself into it in no time!
That's all for now...stay positive! My new motto. :)
