A penny for your thoughts

This week was VICTORIOUS!! I feel accomplished. I feel proud. Even though I went over on my calories twice this week, I know where I went wrong. I know what I have to change. I know what I have to give up, and I'm honestly surprised that it was as easy as it was. This next week is going to be a challenge in and of itself, thanks to mother nature. I am thinking I need to sit down and write myself a solid plan of action BEFORE the cravings/temptations/irritatio
n set in, that way I'll preemptively be my own cheerleader.
My roomies are even walking with me now, and that's fantastic! It helps keep me motivated. We're all eating better, and I am grateful that they're helping me out in the small ways. I didn't change overnight, I don't expect them to. But these babysteps are getting bigger and bolder, and it's Empowering! Even if my one roomie giggled hysterically when she saw me measuring out portions for dinner. She'll come around. LOL!
I decided to splurge tonight and I bought a Diet Mt Dew. MD was always my fave soda BEFORE. Anyway, long story short; I came, I saw, I bought. I hated. It was cloyingly sweet. I took three sips and promptly gave it away. So goodbye, Mt Dew. I shall never again take you back. Don't call me, I'll call you ..
I got a new phone the other day. As I was re-downloading some apps, I tried to get the SP app again, and found that it's no longer free. I was disappointed. I however, did find the spartacus workout app that I was looking for and you can bet I snapped that one up.
I'm wondering how good I will keep all this new found knowledge and routines once school starts next week. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned. I need to probably make a battle plan for that too. And invest in a little lunch cooler so I can avoid the cafeteria/starbucks area. I've a soft spot for the Sobe Melon drink.
This weekend I am going to not slack off, and actually get some more Strength training in. I think I might actually break down and get a white board and tack it to the back of my door. I also need a little notebook to track things in whilst on campus, or maybe I'll just spring for the 3.99 and get my wonderful app back. Haha.
Hmm. Sleep now I think.
