I got there early... and ordered a beer. <BR> When he got there, we ordered an appetizer and I got another beer. Then we had dinner. <BR> On the way home I thought about the 3 beers we have in the fridge...I'm considering it a victory that instead of going for more beer I had some girl scout cookies and a glass of milk. <BR> <BR> It was enough alcohol to throw me off it for a long while. What's the point? Why did I even want it? I think... Fri, 21 Mar 2014 09:40:49 EST Good first day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5652238 I stayed within calories yesterday - even with Taco Bell as my dinner. I hardly EVER eat fast food but I did my best and ordered 2 chicken gorditas fresco style (just chicken, tomato salsa & lettuce). <BR> <BR> No beer. No cookies. Although I did have a yummy Luna bar after work because I had a parent-teacher conference and I knew I would not be having dinner until after and I would be hungry. <BR> <BR> And I ran 9 miles this morning!... I MUST hit the bowflex tonight. <BR> <BR> Down a wh... Thu, 20 Mar 2014 09:23:43 EST Enough is enough http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5651433 Since around the new year I have been floating around between 134ish and as low as 130.8. <BR> <BR> Most my clothes fit pretty good - but lately I've been slowly creeping back into having a beer or two and eating cookies on a regular basis. It is not a good habit to be getting back into. <BR> <BR> So today, after a few days of not wanting to weigh myself - I am committing to getting through to the 120's (my goal is 127). <BR> <BR> I weigh 133.8 today and my plan is to cut out drinking, cut... Wed, 19 Mar 2014 09:50:18 EST Transiton from dieter to athlete 10/2/2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5502327 Carbs. <BR> For the past couple of days I eat carbs before I run, eat/drink carbs during my run, and eat carbs with protein after my run. I then eat carbs for breakfast and more carbs for lunch and have a few more carbs for dinner. I am NEVER hungry. <BR> <em>15</em> <BR> <BR> To get this many carbs (min 343/day) in my diet has been a challenge that I haven't even achieved most days - but I'm getting close to being able to pull it off comfortably. <BR> <BR> This morning I had 1/2 large ... Wed, 2 Oct 2013 10:01:45 EST New habits http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5496732 Since I've been feeling frustrated over being within 2 lbs of goal for about 2 weeks and not being able to bust through this plateau I decided to take a moment to focus on some really big new habits/changes I have made to my lifestyle over the past couple of months. <BR> <BR> 1. I no longer drink soda or gatorade. Unless it's an electrolyte passed to me in a small paper cup at mile 8 - I just drink water. And I've only had beer one night in the past 3 weeks (UFC fight night - and it was only... Thu, 26 Sep 2013 10:04:48 EST
