Day 5 did not go well. We went to a cookout and bonfire last night. I ate reasonably, but I went over my calories. I ate more cheesey potatoes when I got home.
Why do I do this? It wasn't a binge, but still. I keep self-sabotaging every damned day and I am tired of it. I felt really motivated yesterday. I know today will be better. I have been on my period for the past five days so I know that has something to do with my weight. I had lost 1.5 lb. and now I am back up a lb. over where I started. I know it is water weight. But still.
I am still really motivated, but I am starting to think I will always be this weight. I just keep trying.

Calories - 1,793
That was day 3. My calories have been consistently higher, but I am still down in weight, so I guess with my active job I am doing alright.
Day 4 was a colossal failure. It went well until dinner, when I ate at a Chinese buffet. I had them stir fry me some shrimp and veggies, but they used a lot of oil. Plus, I had seconds! Oh well. Today is a new day. I was down 1.5 lb. and I probably gained some back from that episode, but I am going to try lowering my calories some. I haven't really binged in the last few days, even though my calories have been consistently high, in the 1650-1750 range.

Yesterday went rather well!
Calories - 1,672
I was a little over my range for calories, but I am ok with it; I worked a hard shift and ate a non-planned snack of Chex Mix, which had 210 calories, and I enjoyed it. It was worth it to me. I have been fasting since 7:00 pm last night or a physical this morning. I am looking forward to eating a bagel and some fruit for breakfast, I am starving!
I am off work and school today, so a walk is definitely in order. I will walk for at least 20 minutes today, rain or shine.

Calories - 1,764
I am not disappointed with that, because I resisted a lot of temptation yesterday and ate pretty healthfully. Not too bad for I did make a FEW choices that were less than stellar, but I'm not mad at myself. I think I need to love myself a little more, and stop dwelling on negatives. I am happy about small progress, and I ate two servings of broccoli at dinner, which pleases me. I don't really like vegetables, but it was cooked just right and I wanted to eat something green.
Other than that, today was stressful. Nursing school is kicking my butt! I am a stressed basket case. Other than that, I will be going to work tonight. This time, I'm bringing almonds or a snack for after dinner. Can't be munching away too much at work!
Hope you all had a glorious day!

Today is the first official day of the September challenge, and I am so ready to start. I was trying to start all weekend, but it isn't a great idea for me to start anything on a weekend!
Today I go back to school to face a host of work to do, and work tonight. However, I am hoping these two things will help me stay strong today. I really want to do this. I am committed to doing it. I am going to eat healthier, less fat, and work out more. I want to be hot by Halloween!
Goals for Halloween
Halloween is a silly day to end my short-term goal, but I am silly, so it's fitting! It is exactly 8 weeks and 1 day away.
My goal weight for this challenge is 16 lb. less than I weigh now. And, drumroll please, I weighed in today at 153.0. That makes my goal weight 137.0 lb.
Eat healthier. I am talking vegetables, people! I like healthy foods, so this shouldn't be a big problem.
Exercise more. I am planning to walk at least 5 out of 7 days a week, even if it's only for 20 minutes.I am going for a walk right now!
That's it. No strict plan, just aim for overall eating less and making better choices. I think this liberal approach is just what I need. Something with wiggle room, not for failure, but for life!
Wish me luck!
This is me, around my goal weight for this challenge:
And this is me now ( as of the Iowa trip):
I can see a big difference in my face especially. My body is a lot curvier as well. I weighed about 20 lb. less than I do now in that first picture. If I could get back there, I would be happy! I just want to change. I am tired of this battle.
And! Something nice to start thinking about fall...
