I'm working from home today so I had a late start. I went to go on the treadmill and my dog kind of took over- so he had a nice workout before I sat down at the computer to get some work done.
I'm still really sad about the situation, but I'm trying to keep moving forward. I'm seeing some girlfriends from highschool tonight, so hopefully getting together with them will take my mind off of things.
I hope you guys have a happy weekend!

Bobbi - I feel like meal planning is essential in weight loss and in maintenance. When you have your meals planned and groceries bought, it takes a lot more effort to go off of your plan. Be sure to plan some "treats" too. Like your cheesecake bowl, or other low carb treats. I think it is helpful to post it on a blog or list somewhere so you can see how well you followed it. Maybe a reward if you follow it perfectly? Cash is a nice incentive. But you know that. You're almost a lawyer :)
I had a good day yesterday with food and exercise. I slept through my workout this morning, but it's strength training day, so I will do it in front of the tv this evening. Fridays are often lazy days around the office, but I will try to focus this morning so I can play hooky this afternoon. Well, I'm going to play hooky this afternoon regardless, I just don't want to feel guilty :) So I will see what I can do to get some work cleared off this morning.

Good morning everyone! The lemon chicken last night turned out amazing. Next time I will definitely add more lemon though, as three tablespoons was not enough to really bring out the flavor.
I ate well for dinner (the lemon chicken and a salad), but followed it up with a huge bowl of ice cream. This ice cream is not low carb. I want it out of my house so I thought, "Well, I had some this morning, so I might as well just cheat and get rid of it." There's a little bit left but I'm going to try to stay away from it. It's not going to help me if I have more of it.
I'm having a hard time eating enough. I'm hungry, but not for anything in the house that I can have. We're going to be meal planning for next week tomorrow and I am going to try to get some better ideas for low carb lunches and snacks that sound appealing to me. I've been loving our dinners, but it's the rest of the meals that I struggle with.
Something that has helped me to drink more water is having a cute water bottle at work. It's pink with a grip and a straw. I don't know why, but I tend to drink more water out of it than I do a regular plastic water bottle. Weird, but I guess whatever works, huh?
We are going to an art gallery opening and then out for the evening with my co-workers/law school friends and one of the senior attorneys. It should be fun. I will stick to low carb drinks - vodka and lemon/lime or diet soda. I'm not going to deprive myself of alcohol right now, because when I go out it's a nice break from studying and I earn it.
I'm spending the next two days working on Evidence. Today is Presentation and Character. Wish me luck, as this is a difficult area of the MBE for me!
