In a slump...

Monday, May 10, 2010

So, needless to say, I actually gained a few pounds before my senior Recital. Don't get me wrong, everyone still said I looked beautiful, but it would have been fantastic to fit into a dress at least one size smaller. I recently had my favorite pair of jeans rip, so I had to order new ones...yet again it would have been nice to order a size 8 instead of a 10.

I need people to help motivate me...My friends and family just say "Oh you look fine" or my ever favorite "You are NOT fat". These comments are NOT helpful. True, I don't want you to look at me say "Oh my God you are so HUGE" or "You Heffer" but still...something would be nice. Because when I hear that everyone thinks I look fine I completely believe it and then think I don't need to fix it.

I plan this summer to work out on my parents elliptical along with my EA sports active for the Wii. I think if just try to wake up a little bit earlier for work and work out, I'll be okay.

And then there's the other problem...WORK. Working at a Mall is one of the WORST things ever. Not only is it all greasy foods, but I also work with ONLY women who are constantly bringing in cookies, or having pizza parties or buying chick-fil-a for the store. It's hard when your manager says " what's for dinner" and we typically always get something greasy. The salad place in the mall just shut down so what's my option now? Yes they are putting a sushi place instead, but really how healthy is THAT? I guess I need to start taking my lunch to work...it's hard with the temptation ALL around me!!

I may not be the BEST in this picture, but this is my goal for right now. I feel like if I go to the extreme, it won't happen.

    Haha, I can't say "you heifer???" Darn. Ok, so now I feel bad that I totally missed your post on my page back in February! I promise to be here for you now to make up for that. Did they get rid of the soup place in the mall too? Because the right soup can be really filling and low in calories if you plan for it.

    Working at a vet means that people are always bringing in goodies as well, there's always a cake for one of the 50 employees' birthdays, etc. For me, the easiest way to avoid these things is to have planned ahead of time what I'm going to eat for that day. If I know what is going into that calorie tracker and that I've already planned for a 200-300 calorie snack at the end of the day, it's easier to avoid something totally damaging in the afternoon or whatever. And, obviously, taking something from home to eat to munch on instead is helpful, that way you're eating something and don't feel the need to shove the bad stuff in your mouth! A handful of almonds is filling, Larabars or Luna protein bars are really good (like a frigging candy bar, I swear), and pretty filling too.

    Love you, love you so much baby sister. I love that you want to do this for you, that's what makes it the right time. I know how you feel, I've been there, and you know I'm here for you. Mwah! You're going to look hot for my wedding!
