The eating better is coming along.  The working out is not.  I’m so stressed out right now, not entirely sure why.  Probably a culmination of things.  I need to work out to help with the stress.  Then I stress about not having time to work out.  Argh!  In due time, I suppose.


Ha.  I went to SF and totally blew my diet.  It seems that once I get a taste for bad food, I can’t stop it.  Because I’ve cheated SO many times since I’ve been back.  I got sick, and therefore haven’t worked out since I’ve been back either.  Ugghhh.  I feel like I’m back to square one.  It’s so depressing when this happens, even though I know I’ll feel like this while I’m cheating.  Hooray. Guilt.  I brought a Bento to work today, and I’m still getting better, so I can’t work out yet.  Bleah.


I think I did pretty good this weekend.  I didn’t overeat even if we were out of town and I took my walk on Saturday, at least 30 minutes of cardio.  I’m still motivated.  We’re kinda broke right now, so I’m eating sort of unhealthy, but I’m hoping to counter that by working out really hard this week.  I’m really wanting to go everyday this week, but I’m not sure how it’ll work out.  It’s slow going, but I’ll get there.  The motivation is there and I know what I need to do.  Plus I have Advocare on my side, which will start kicking in too.  Slowly but surely wins the race, no?

I’ve been seeing more and more success stories on the internet and they are so inspiring.  Even my friend Stephanie is already seeing success because she has been working really hard.  I use this as fuel and it helps me keep reminding myself that I can do it too.  I’ve done it before, I can do it again!  You go ladies!


I made it to the gym twice this week, but I also had a 30 minute walk another day.  So I am increasing my workout, I just want to be at the point that I’m going everyday.  I was very happy with myself that I actually got out of bed early and made it to the gym by 7:30am.  Yay me!  I want to make it a regular thing so I can get it overwith in the morning and be able to spend time with Damion at night and not feel guilty about missing either one.  We’re going to Missouri this weekend, so I may not get much of a workout in for 3 days, but maybe I can convince someone to take a walk with me… We shall see.  I’ve only fudged once this week as far as food.  I had Chipotle (i know, so bad) but I made sure not to eat the burrito!  No tortilla.  The rest of the week I had either a Bento or a sandwich lunch.  And normal dinner.  I hope my motivation for this lasts.  I always feel better when I’m working out and eating right anyway.


I have a new motivation!  Damion asked me to marry him this past Friday!  That means I have some serious weight to lose.  I want to be a size 10 when I am married.  So today I brought my bento, I brought my gym clothes, and I brought my motivation.  I hope it lasts :-p


I’m off to a horrible start.  I haven’t been to the gym but maybe twice a week for the last three weeks.  This week I haven’t been at all, because I’ve been super stressed about our impending move, work, and other things.  I’ve been doing ok with the eating, taking my lunch pretty much everyday.  I think in the last three weeks I’ve only eaten out three times during the workweek.  My key to losing weight has always been working out, and I can’t seem to force myself to do it.  I don’t know why.  It seems like working out just reminds me of martial arts, and I’m still trying to separate myself from it.  Ugh. 😦  Good news though, I got my Bento box in the mail today.  I can’t wait to use it tomorrow!  ^_^
