I am already tired of this failure of a challenge. I ate pizza last night. I wanted it, and I ate it. I haven't weighed in yet. I am going to do that in a minute. I just wanted to decompress. I am starting over today, like officially. I want a clean slate. I am going to do a mini-fast break for myself and keep my challenges to weekly. Every week a new challenge, so that way if I make a misstep, I will know that I didn't blow a whole 3 month challenge.
Week 1 - Stay within Calorie Ranges
Week 2 - Exercise at least 90 minutes this week
I think these mini goals will suit me a lot better. Staying within my calories, exercising, and everything else, all at once, is just too much to handle. I am overhauling my diet and exercise, 1 week at a time, 1 thing at a time.
5 Things I Am Grateful For
1. The beautiful fall weather is starting!
2. I am healthy, overall
3. I have a nice husband who loves me no matter how large I am, and I sort of believe him
4. I have really great parents who support me in all that I do
5. My mom really helps me get through hard times, and I can lean on her during these challenges as a support system to be successful
On a positive note, I weighed in and I am the same 153.0 as I was last week. So, no loss no gain. Well, I gained my losses, but still. I'll take it.

Well, day 6 of the challenge has come and gone. I am now on day 7! Which I think is auspicious. I am totally starting over. I am not weighing myself until next Monday. I didn't weigh myself today, either. Who cares? It isn't going to have changed much, except maybe go upward. I think a general trend of going downward is best to strive for.
5 Things I am Grateful For
1. My loving and supportive husband
2. My eyes
3. My cat Henry the 8th
4. Our cute little house
5. That the fall weather is finally coming!
I think I am going to end my blogs with 5 things I am grateful for. I think it is ending positively and therefore will impact me positively. What do you think?

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.
