So over a week ago I began. I am still keeping with it. I just don't always get time to get on and log it all. I keep a diary on a free app I found. But so far since joining spark a week ago I am down almost 5 pounds and 12 pounds overall. I feel so much better already. Someone once told me the hardest 10lbs to lose are the first until you hit your last 10lbs. I crossed that line. Since starting back in June, I am much more conscious of what goes in my body and how much. I may not be a clean eater, but I eat way better now.
On friday night I drove home to surprise my boyfriend. I drank water over the 3 and half hour trip. I had a small bag of cheese pop corn and a gyro for dinner extra lettuce and tomato. The next day We slept until 10 and just hung out until 12. We went for dinner at one of the best bar/restaurants that have great chicken bites. Instead of a plate of the bites, I got a chicken bit salad. I also got fries because they are the best but i only ate half of the small plate. So over time I have learned. I really try every day to eat my calories the right way. I still have slip ups but its okay, that is life.
I just wanted to vent a bit though too. I am staying at my aunt's house for summer classes. She is also taking summer classes and field work as well. When she is gone for a few days she always leaves me a grocery gift card in case the house needs anything or we want a snack. Last night we went to the store and I told her two daughter who are 17 and 14, that we can get two containers of ice cream since it was on sale and the magic shell. I went to go pick up the milk and they came back with an arm load of toppings and whipped cream. I told them no since we agreed previously on ice cream and shell. They all but threw fits and said it was their mom's money they could spend it. I didnt feel like arguing and causing a scene, so I just gave up. Seriously, I may only be 20 almost 21 but I am eons ahead of the girls in understanding financial responsibility and that you don't get everything you want. I just needed to vent that. It is really hard being in a household for a long time that is not your own. My mom and my aunt may be sister but I was raised completely different from my cousins. My siblings and I would never pull that with our parents. We were always taught if it is someone else's money you get what you need and are done. By the time we got home I didn't even want the ice cream. I ended up calling my boyfriend and talking to him to vent a little. They ended up leaving the whip cream out all night anyways and it was bad the morning. They are used to their mom not being here to clean up after them. My aunt's a great mom but her kids take advantage and disrespect her. I feel sorry for these kids when the real world hits. Especially when their mom begins working as a PTA/OTA. She isn't going to clean and cook for them. I just needed to vent that.
I am going for a walk and a swim if anybody needs to find me. Have a great day
