You win this time, Internet.

Wow, I just encountered my first lost blog. Ugh, I am so frustrated. I always see people talk about how you should do it in Word or Notepad first and then copy it. And I always think to myself, that never happens to me, and it probably won’t…so why bother? Well…I am not above losing a blog apparently, haha. Oh well. It just stinks, because I felt it was a pretty good summary of what my last several weeks have been like, since I haven’t blogged in a while.
Well, let’s me try to remember…I definitely wanted to mention that I hate that I haven’t blogged in a while, but it is mostly due to my spending the few spare minutes I have blogging/typing updating my lovely True Blue team on BLC. I don’t regret it for a second though. I have LOVED BLC and think it has been just what I needed.
I had my first work nightmare the on Friday night. I love my internship, it is just that I am in charge of a pretty big project right now, and it is kind of stressful. So I guess it really got to me on Friday, and man it was one of those dreams that sticks with you for a couple hours after you wake up. Oh well, haven’t had any since, and I’ve been trying to work on not stressing too much, this project will come together, just not as quickly or easily as I had hoped.
I had a bad weekend, well bad in the terms of poor eating, not in the terms of I did not have fun. I went on a float trip on Saturday, and I definitely ate way too poorly, drank too many alcoholic calories, and then got a sunburn and did not work out for the two following days (that were preceded by not working out on Friday or Saturday). BUT, I am working on reminding myself that 4 days does not set all the work I have done back.
Speaking of the work I have done though, today I am officially at 30LBS DOWN! Woot! I started sparking again at 286lbs and am now 256lbs. I am soooo excited! Take that fat, you loose, I WIN!
Anyways, getting back to getting back on track (did you follow that? haha, I need to get better at staying on track on all things it looks like, haha). I definitely have done better the last two days, I’ve worked out yesterday and today, and have tried (but maybe not been as fully successful as I would like) at eating better.
Part of the issue lately has been eating out with my coworkers. I really enjoy eating out with them, they are my work family, and I love them, I love hanging out with them, and I love getting out of the office for a bit. So, we go out to eat quite a bit. I do see this getting better during the school semester though. I definitely had some serious issues with eating right last semester though, so I have a plan, and I am going to work on keeping it. I am definitely going to keep doing my grocery shopping on Sundays so I have food to eat all week, I am going to start taking my lunch on days I have to be on campus (which I was AWFUL about before, and would sometimes not eat until 2-3pm, which would lead to binging), and I am going to always have breakfast…no excuses.
As for working out in the semester, I must say I am a little worried, because my biggest excuse the last year and half has been that I have no time. SO, I think I am going to go back to boot camp. I really enjoyed it for the four week I did it in June. The trainer said he would probably do 6 weeks this time (which I would like), and it would start in September. I definitely think that having something that I hold myself accountable to like that, that I have a group that also holds me accountable, and that my checkbook holds me accountable to (we pay up front, so if I don’t go, I am basically giving my money away). Anyways, I am definitely missing the boot camp and looking forward to going back.
Alright, well I suppose that is enough for now. I hope everyone has been having a great July!
