Thank you! I am taking a bit of a break today. I've been doing cardio and the weights but I've been doing the cardio nonstop. And today and last night I've been so drained, and hungry. So Ill just do my basic core exercise today and try to relax.

[On my rest day I ended up doing ten minutes of cardio at a higher speed than I'm used to] I want to challenge myself, but I also don't want to wear myself out.

That is so fabulous!
It's hard to make healthy changes but you are doing it.
You are a winner!

No matter what the scale says when you weigh, you are a winner! You have made big changes, you are eating healthier, you are exercising and you are doing it every day!

Be proud of yourself. We are!

I just got back home from my visit to Georgia to stay with my sister and I've been home a week. One week without anyone watching my diet with me and my exercise with me.

For the last week I have kept below or right at [mostly below] my 2k calories a day. I've tracked everything from Fiber to Fat to Carbs to Sodium to Protein and I've kept to it. I haven't had one bit of pop [I went from 6 cans a day to none] I've had at least 8 glasses of water a day. My diet has consisted of good protein. Eggs, Tuna, Turkey Bacon, Swai, Tilapia, Tofu. Green/Orange/Red peppers. Cucumbers. Greek yogurt. I'm talking Fage greek yogurt. Fruits like grapes and watermelon and berries, and if I feel the need for something sweet to drink. Diet Mango Unsweetened green tea. The only caffeine I've allowed myself, I've used as a motivator. The complex I live in has a gym attached to the main office and in the main office they have a gourmet coffee maker free for residents. I only let myself have a cup of coffee in the morning after the 30 - 40 minute walk I take on the treadmill every day. [On sunday I go light, only ten minutes because I'm trying to get at least ten minutes of fitness in every day.].

I've moved up from 1.9 miles an hour for 30 minutes to 2.5 miles an hour with 3 miles an hour intervals. I've also been working on some circuit weight training to help my back and my arms and legs [and chest and stomach]

I just wanted to post this here because I'm really proud of myself ;-; Because no one's telling me to do this or on my back about it. I'm doing it on my own and the gravity of that is a liiiittle bit lost on my boyfriend x]. He's proud of me!! He's being more supportive than I ever could have hoped for. He's eating healthy with me, helping me cook, trying out my food that I make [He loves the tofu] and takes me to the gym in the morning. But it's just that he's never been overweight, for some reason he has this magical body where he can eat pizza and taco bell all the time in a sedentary gamer lifestyle and still be thin and I'm so jealous I want to pop him one xD. But really, he's proud. He just doesn't quite get how big of a challenge and how big of a deal it is. I haven't weighed myself yet or measured myself. But I also wanted to post here to thank those of you who have been supportive of me through the times when I've been panicked and self-deprecating. Thank you.
