SO close to ONEderland!

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Happy Saturday! Honestly I love doing blogging on Saturday because it's the weekend, I have the time to, and it's so relaxing lol.

I weighed in this morning and lost my 2 lbs! I'm really excited because this week had its tribulations and I was super busy. It was hard to keep healthy working with these kids and having to watch them eat my favorite snack - cheezits! Lol luckily it's not completely real cheese so it doesn't affect my nondairy too much and it has no cholesterol - which is why I stopped eating dairy. But it was fun.

My internal clock sucks, I'll say that. I woke up this morning at 8:11 after fully expecting to sleep in super late after being so darn tired all week. That's what I get for going to bed before 12, so I guess that makes sense. I felt well-rested either way and I cleaned my dorm top to bottom (seems like a new Saturday ritual, I love cleaning by the way).

Anyway, I am SO close to ONEderland that I want to cry. I had planned on doing the zig zag eating plan, and I was going to do it crazy where I let myself have like 2500 calories one day. But I did that accidentally a few weeks in a row (as I blogged about before) and it obviously throws me for a loop and makes my will power weaken. It makes me hungrier too because it stretches my shrinking tummy one day and then makes me go back to normal randomly. I don't want to confuse my body THAT much. So I think the zig will be one day a week (maybe on a Wednesday, say) where I eat 200-300 over. I mean, if I eat on the low side at 1200 six of the other days and suddenly eat 200-300 over 1550, my body is gonna be shocked either way eating 600 more one day. I think that's enough, and it will still keep me in some sort of good check. Not to mention, I don't want to use a gimmick to lose weight when I've been doing so well being normal for three months. That's mainly for when you plateau anyway. OH YEA! It's been 3 months today! Happy anniversary lol emoticon

That's basically it. I'm ready for summer both mentally and almost physically! I can't believe how far I've come. To be honest, I didn't think I could do it back in the day. But my mindset was SO different this time around, and I've become obsessed with getting in shape and healthy. If you told me I would be like this a year ago, I probably would have been excited, but laughed at the prospect because to think I could ever stop eating dairy or red meat...ha! Or even love chicken breast and not really care for dark meat anymore. I really am proud of myself, sometimes I have to remind myself that it's okay to say that and recognize the progress because it's not tooting my own horn really. Once I see a 1 in front of two numbers instead of a 2, I may cry. Probably. Hopefully emoticon

Have a great weekend everyone! xo

    Ahhhhhh so exciting! I'm so happy for you. You've done amazingly and you thoroughly deserve it.
    This zig thing really doesn't sound interesting. I don't think I fully have the willpower either though. If I plan a higher calorie day, I just end up thinking about all those foods I can eat for about a week before! And that just messes with my head. I think I'll start it if/when I plateau.
    Goooooood luck! Keep going hard. You can do this.
