04:17 pm - Ugh
I have so fallen off the bandwagon in the past few weeks. Ugh. We just moved into our first house together this weekend (yay!) but I spent all of last week packing, then unpacking this weekend. It's so exciting to own our own home, but it has been hell on my body. We ate take-out ALL week and I've been super stressed, between the move, school, work, and planning the wedding.
I can definitely feel that my body needs to get back to the gym and eating better, so I'm really going to try this week. I'm planning to workout tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. And no take-out at all this week. Here's to hoping the bandwagon picks me up again.
02:35 pm - Goals for this week
Well Between work stress, moving stress, etc. I have completely failed. However, I am starting a new this week. My goal(s) this week are to:
1. Get back into the habit of drinking (4) 24 oz bottles of water.
2. Do cardio three times this week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Weights three times this week; Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Keep your fingers crossed.
PS: For all my failures my clothes are fitting a little bit better.

07:36 am - I am finally moved!
Ok so to make a long story short this past month and even February was very stressful at work and with me moving and of course the wedding. We moved over the last weekend and I took yesterday off to unpack. Wow! I feel great today, the new place is almost complete. I am over the excess work stress and today it only took me 25 minutes to get to work. Life is good and I think I can finally concentrate on being healthy. I am heading to my new complex's fitness center tonight. Looking forward to it.

02:15 pm - Blacklisted???
So I'm beginning to wonder if I've been blacklisted from the "mass" emails. I did send a reply that it gets overwhelming and that's why I post to this site, hence the purpose of having this site. Since then, I've gotten nothing via email. I highly doubt everyone dropped off this online support group. I do need the support and try to be supportive myself. Anyone have any ideas??

I'm at work and I feel like I'm going to cry right now.
I just realized that I have to go wedding dress shopping in about a week and I look and feel like crap. Although we have decided that the scale was broken and have replaced it with a new one, I am afraid to use it because it will tell me something that I already know. I screwed up real bad this weekend.
And Daniel doesn't help. He thinks I'm perfectly fine the way I am, but I'm not. He makes it so easy to sleep in mornings rather than do my first 30 min workout then. And we've gone out to lunch for the past 2 days. Both times it was fried, greasy foods. The only thing I have actually managed to do is my evening workouts with Yourself ! Fitness.
I feel like I'm going to vomit.

07:51 pm - Made it to the gym!!!
I am with Liannef. This week is off to a good start! I kicked as at the gym this morning, ate a healthy salad for lunch and had sushi with Fi for dinner, and I am not at all hungry. I am looking forward to the rest of the week. I hope you girls had a good day tonday too!
01:33 pm - It's Monday
Well, I'm off to a semi-good start to the week. I did a Yourself!Fitness core workout this morning, and I'm on my 4th bottle of water for the day. I'm having a HUGE chocolate craving though, and as I sit here and write this I am eating a small Milky Way bar. Can't win 'em all.

06:26 pm - Stress Eating
I don't know when I became a stress eater but I am. In college, if I was miserable or stressed I lost weight because I couldn't eat. Now I automatically reach for crap food. Yuck!

10:36 am - managing life and losing weight...
what a difficult process sometimes. Every time I feel like I'm getting a workout schedule under control, things just start popping up in all areas of my life to mess it up. Not that they're bad things, but sometimes there's so much stuff to deal with there aren't enough hours in the day and I don't know what to turn to first. Sometimes I'll cut out a workout (or several) to take care of other responsibilities, which makes me physically feel like crap; other times I'll do a workout in lieu of something else I really should be doing, then that doesn't get done. It all just wears me out sometimes. ARGH!
And to think I really thought I have good time management skills...
