Week 2

Sunday, September 09, 2012

This week has been full of ups and downs. I've stuck to my eating and exercise routine and added a lot of new healthy foods for more of a variety. I feel so good. There were days before my lifestyle change when I would feel like crap all day (probably because I ate like crap and drank NO water). And for the last two weeks I have felt better than ever! I found I really LOVE zucchini (yumm especially baked with Parmesan) and I usually eat that when I am craving something salty.

Yesterday I went out to eat for the first time... It was SO overwhelming. And I went to Soup or Salad. lol Even though I got a salad with lots of good veggies and fruit I found it REALLY hard NOT to fill my plate with all of the pastas, breads and deserts. But I did good, stayed strong! I think for a while I probably wont be going out to eat because I am still craving everything. haha

I also had a really bad LOW point in my week. My brother in law left a SUPERSIZE Mc Donalds french fry on the counter... I saw it and my mouth started watering. I DIDNT EAT IT but I did start crying. lmao I never thought I would cry because I couldn't eat french frys, haha needless to say, I started my day off with baaddd cravings for french frys...

A few hours later, my bff (who is 6 months pregnant) calls and wanted to come over. Every time she comes over she brings Soda, Pizza, Brownies, Chips etc. I asked her not to bring junk food with her because I was having a bad day already and I knew I would cheat if all of that was in front of me. Long story short, after she was trying to convince me I need to just cheat on my diet when shes there (and I said NO!) she got mad that I asked her not to bring junk food. She told me I was so selfish and I needed to control myself better and she didn't want to be friends because I was trying to control her diet... I get shes pregnant and has cravings but I don't think it was too much for me to ask her not to bring junk food to MY house for the few hours she was there... I would have cooked her a nice healthy meal! And maybe I was being selfish, but I NEED to be selfish sometimes especially when my health is on the line. 

With all of the ups and downs this week, I managed to still lose some weight and I feel good about what I have accomplished so far. Hopefully next week is better though. lol

Scale:193! Woot Woot! Hard work and eating healthy does work!!

Goals: I need to start cutting out my morning coffee... With all the creamer I like, I end up wasting 200ish calories on a stupid beverage. We will see. :o

Till next time!

Yours Truly,
