February. The month of LOOOOVE... and groundhogs.
This month is going to test me. I am going to be very very busy but I need to still focus on my weight loss goals. Today was a good example. My friends all decided to get dessert for the table so they came back with various cakes and cookies and caramel for apples. I had one slice of apple dipped in the caramel and a small small forkful of carrot cake (my favorite!) When I got back to the dorm, everyone was complaining about how full they were and how they shouldn't have eaten it all. I snickered to myself.

This was a picture of the table. In the big bowl was two kinds of cake and on the plate was more cake and cookies. In the bowl in the foreground was caramel for the apples. I can't believe I resisted it all! I went back to the dorm, noticed I was pretty low on carbs so I had a delicious skinny cow and half a serving of tostitos.

Here's Today's Breakdown!
Calories: 1262
Carbs: 115

*I track the steps I walk at a moderate pace because total steps is an underestimate because I don't keep the pedometer on my when I'm just walking down the hall or around the room

    You're doing so good!! I think its good to have balance. I don't like to eat 'bad' foods every day because I try to maximise nutritional value for my calories, but now and then it is absolutely OK to work it into the plan and go away with no guilt. Especially when you're resisting so much yummyness!

    Keep at it girl, you're doing great!
