Blog #4 YAY!

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Yesterday was the very first day I did not go over my calorie range! I was so proud of myself. I even went to Denny's with my friends last night to study and watched as everyone ordered pancakes, mac and cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches, and burgers. But did I order anything? Nope. I calmly assured myself that the organic supplement shake I had before would definitely tide me over the two hours before I myself would return home to a healthy balanced meal of pasta and veggies. And that is exactly what happened :)
Yesterday, was absolutely filled with small successes. I got all 8 glasses of water in (I usually hate drinking water). In my three hour chemistry lecture, I snacked on healthy blueberries and raspberries instead of running to the vending machine during our ten minute break; I spaced my 6 meals 3 hours or so apart; AND in the afternoon when I felt a small stress binge coming along (I have two exams this week and a quiz so I am pretty stressed!) I quickly ran into my flatmates room and asked her to come along to the gym. YES! I actually went into the gym and lifted WEIGHTS instead of pigging out. I haven't lifted weights in over a year!! I was less stressed after I was done, and my calories remained controlled :)

Yesterday was pretty amazing, but you know what? I'm ready to do even better today!
Let's do this!

Best always,

    Excellent job staying on track! It's the small successes that let you know that if you can do THIS then you can do ANYTHING!!

    It is tough to pass on all of those temptations today - you did really well. Be proud. I remember my college years (despite the fact that they were quite a while ago) and as I recall, there is an never ending stream of junk food flowing past you all the time. You will have to call on that inner strength and discipline to hang tough. But I bet you can do it. emoticon
