food journal revelations and aspirations...

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

oh wow... so wednesday, november 4th. unbelievable how time just keeps flying by. 2 months from today i will turn 26. crazy. LOL. so i'm back at the gym, eating is on point, and my mindset is positive. i took a couple weeks and didn't do any overtime at work, but now, i'm realizing that i need to do some more. i wish that i didn't have to. i'm trying to be thankful that they're even offering overtime at my work, but i just wish i didn't NEED the money right now. hate that feeling. stresses me out. but i'm just trying to tell myself that i can do this... just to keep myself balanced and keep myself in check.. not push myself like crazy. i want to do some overtime, make some money, and keep up my routine with the gym and my nutrition. it's really, really important to me to lose 10 lbs. before my birthday (january 4th) and to be back at 140 or 143 by february. i know i can do it. i just have to be consistent and stay balanced/focused. it's crazy to think that NEXT sunday we'll be half way through this month already... so much going on. feels like there's not enough time in a day! anyway, i just wanted to get a quick blog in and say hello to all of you. hope the month has started off great for you! i've put myself on a sugar detox this week where the only "sweets" i'm allowing myself is 3 pieces of dark chocolate a day (it comes out to 90 calories and i don't feel guilty, lol) i've also stopped consuming milk and icecream. i've found that it's been having an effect on my skin. i've noticed from my food journal that i have acne flare-ups when i consume milk. crazy how you can figure things out when you keep a food journal! :) alright, i better get goin now!

much love,

    If you are cutting out dairy, amke sure to take your calcium suppliments!!! Keep those bones strong!!!

    I am sure you'll see your goal weight by your birthday, even with this overtime getting in the way... it'll just tak more food planning and preparation... but you can do it!!

    I've missed the blogs! Good job at staying on point even with the hectic schedule. Good luck with the 10 lbs before the B-Day.
