Week 10, Day 1
We are technically a quarter of the way through my 40 week fitness challenge. I don't think I've actually lost anything. I haven't weighed in in quite a while. I finished my final projects two weeks ago, and finished my finals last week. It's be... Read more
Week 5, Day 3
No promises. Just effort.
It's a crunch week at school, with lots of projects I'm paranoid about, plus my brother is moving in this week and my husband and I's anniversary is Thursday.
I'm going to try to stay on track, but I am know... Read more
Week 4, Day 7
It's been 28 days since I started this journey, and that means it's weigh in day. Technically, the scale moved down 4.25 pounds, but last week my doctor's scale said I was down an additional 3. I was on a bland diet, and all those carbs really m... Read more
Week 4, Day 4
So, today, I did my contractual work, and I sent an introductory email to a professor, trying to get into his class. It's restricted to Music majors, but I have four Film Studies Doctors who could potentially vouch for me, so I'm HOPING. Please,... Read more
Week 4, Day 2
It's not in a wrap. It's not in a pill. It's not in a gimmick or a quick fix.
It's in set ups and set backs and setting down the burdens that hold you back. It's in blood and sweat and tears and anguish and frustration. It's in elation and... Read more
Week 4, Day 1
I've been put on a bland BRAT diet for past few days, and may be on it until my weigh in. I've been having serious stomach problems where I can't keep food down half the time and can't digest it the other half. Turns out I have a bacteria in my ... Read more
Week 3, Day 2
Hello, everybody! I hope everyone got home safe last night.
I noticed today that my finger nails seem stronger than they used to. I'm going to give kudos to the healthy food I've been eating for the past few weeks---I think they're helping ... Read more
Week 3, Day 1
Happy Halloween, everybody!
It's my favourite holiday, so I dressed up even though the only place I went was to get food with my husband and to one class. I received... Read more
Week 2, Day 7
I failed to count my calories yesterday, because I went out to eat dinner with friends at Outback Steakhouse. However, while I ate a bit of cheese fries and a whole potato soup, I only ate half my entre, and didn't eat again later that night, so... Read more
Week 2, Day 5
I had a very emotional past two days that I don't really want to go into. The weird thing is that I'm not hungry--actually the opposite, I really don't want to eat. I think I'm too stressed to eat.
I just found out I am 2... Read more
Week 2, Day 4
I looked at my calorie differential over time, and I should have lost 2.5 pounds of pure fat. I told my husband this, and he answered with what I was thinking: "That's great! Now let's see if your PCOS will let you do it."
And that's true.... Read more
Week 2, Day 3
I found another reason I'm hitting my calories so high but feelings so hungry: my calorie count is off for my Halloween candy (although, as my friend reminded me, "You're not supposed to be using candy for calories.") In any case, my candy is li... Read more
Week 2, Day 2
I think I figured out what was up with my hunger yesterday. I looked at my calorie differential over time report, and it steadily declined until it was well below my recommended calories. I was hungry because I haven't been eating enough. I woke... Read more
Week 2, Day 1
It's been a rough day to keep under the calorie count. I've been hungry all day, only feeling sated while actively eating. Not the strongest start to week two. Does anybody have recommendations for all-day hunger? Perhaps some water or broth, th... Read more
Week 1, Day 7
I've made it through the first week. It hasn't been particularly rough (partially because I keep getting sick, so my body chooses what and how much I eat without fuss). I feel strong going into week two.
I'm so sick of school. If anything ... Read more
