Balancing Consistency and Creativity
So my biggest setback lately has been with my food. This has always been my biggest area that I need to improve on, but now I have a new challenge: being creative with what I eat while also staying consistent with my calories.

#RockYourResolution ~ Day 18
Wow, it has been 5 days since my last blog. I told myself I would try to blog every day this month...but that is harder than it seems! My firs thought is that I would blog every day until I reached my goal weight, but I don't think that is even ... Read more
#RockYourResolution ~ Day 13
I didn't get a chance to type up a blog for last night, so I thought I'd just update now. Yesterday went pretty good! My honey has been putting a lot of effort in to remembering things and trying to go look for a part time job this w... Read more
#RockYourResolution ~ Day 11,12
Well, this weekend has been incredibly stressful. I think I'm PMSing too. Yesterday and Friday I know I went over my calories, even though today I stayed pretty low. I got in a walk this morning, but... I start work tomorrow and I still haven't ... Read more

So I'm not sure why I didn't blog Wednesday, but it was probably because I was studying for my GRE. More on that...

#RockYourResolution ~ Day 7
Week one a success!!
Just got back from taking Jack for a walk, so I still got over 7,000 steps, which is what I would like it to be for a slow day. Most of the day I just hung out at home trying to relax and enjoy my last day of Winter Bre... Read more

#RockYourResolution ~ Day 5
Today was pretty rough food-wise. I work at a cafe in a church on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings, so whatever is left I need to take home or else it will spoil over the week. That means, after working from 8-1, I take home a few breakfast b... Read more
#RockYourResolution ~ Day 4
So I just finished a small bowl of jello that put me right up to 1550, which is my limit. I think that is fine, because I am still trying to get used to saying no... and that jello was practically begging for it.
Today I worked at the cafe whi... Read more

#RockYourResolution ~ Day 2
Today went a little better than yesterday. I still didn't get as much sleep as I would have liked, but I stayed within my calories and got in a good amount of exercise. I did spend a lot more time on the computer than I should have, though. That... Read more
