Time to vent

Friday, January 10, 2014

Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a great day! Today I had another day off so I didn't do much. Of course the weather is still gloomy here! So I just hung around the house most of the day. For my exercise today I decided to shovel snow, and let me tell ya that really is a work out! I was sweating within ten minutes! I wish it would just be nice out already because I would rather go on a nice relaxing walk than shovel snow!LOL

1. I think I've done great on my eating this past week trying to really watch what I eat and cut out sweets but I had the biggest sweet tooth an hour ago I really wanted some cookie dough but I settled for the 100 calorie bag of fudge pretzels and brownie bites instead I know I probably should have made a better choice but I was going to go crazy if I didn't have something sweet & with chocolate in it!

2. With school starting again on Monday i've really been thinking hard about what I want to do with the rest of my life. I only have literally like 6 months before I will be a junior in college & I have no clue on what I want to do with my life! I think I know what I want to do but it seems like I always try to talk myself out of it. For the past 2 years I have wanted to move to Nashville go to Belmont University and major in music business(aka be a tour manager). I feel like if I don't give it a shot I will always be thinking "what if". I don't know if its the thought of moving away from my family and being on my own or just reality finally setting in that its time to grow up.

Here's what I ate today!
-Breakfast essential drink

-Apple with peanut butter

-Baked chicken with taco seasoning, salsa, and pepper jack cheese on it

-100 calorie bag of fudge pretzels
-100 calorie bag of brownies bites

Question of the week!
What do you guys do when you get a sweet tooth that wont go away(what do you eat)?

Thanks for reading:)

    If you are going to workout DO NOT BE AFRAID TO EAT. Otherwise, you will constantly be hungry and trying to satisfy your cravings with 100 cal packs. I hope that does not come across the wrong way at all... I just know because I've been in your shoes...

    When I first started losing weight I didn't know where to begin and I cut my calories down to 1200 sometimes less :( and would often end up bingeing later because it wasn't something I could maintain. I noticed any time I would eat the 100 cal packs I would be more hungry and crave sugar. They never filled me up. Of course, there are going to be times you crave chocolate and those things and I think you did great having it in moderation. :) Those are the little things that will add up over time and make you successful!

    Just make sure you eat enough...ok?

    I usually snack on trail mix. It's high in calories (abt 170 cal for 1/4 cup) but you get nuts and fruit and chocolate. For me it's more satisfying than the 100 calorie packs.
