Enough.

Hey everyone,

So I have been mad busy for the last three weeks, and it has defiantly led to a gain plus bringing back bad habits. NOT COOL. I have had enough of this. I have worked so hard to get to this place, and even though this place isn't where I want to stay, I am not ready to give it up and go back to where I was.

Back on plan starting NOW.

I got another job at a nursing home for the summer doing LPN work, so I have been really busy orientating for that, and I haven't exactly planned healthy lunches for that. This week will be different. No more saying I am going to do something and then not following through.

I bought a 90 day membership for a woman's only gym, and I am going to start working out there tomorrow! I bought a year membership to curves last September and it got really boring, really fast, so I am hoping that this gym can help me not hate going to the gym so much!

Weekly goals:
1. Track Everything
2. Stay away from McDonalds
3. Go to the gym 3 times
4. Go for 2 runs

Questions for you: Have any of you signed up for a gym membership and let it go to waste? What tips do you have to keep your motivation up?

Plateau'd

Didn't lose or gain this week.
Gotta push through it.
I'm not going to let this throw me off track, I have come too far to go back to how I was before.

What are your tips for getting through a Plateau?

Back on Track(ing)

I made bad bad bad decisions last week. I don't even want to tell you what I all ate, because trust me, its Bad. When all was said and done for the week I was up a pound... Totally expected.

I am not making excuses or anything along those lines, but I was totally busy last week, and although it started out good (with 2 runs), it ended off bad (with many many mini cherry scones in my tummy).

This week is different :) I have been tracking everything that has entered my mouth since my weigh in, and I intend to continue doing that for the rest of the week. I also went for a run yesterday and a walk today.

I started a new job yesterday! I am working as an undergrad nurse (aka just like an LPN) this summer in a long term care facility. I am FINALLY going to be bringing in some big $$$$ (instead of spending it all on tuition!) which is really exciting. Plus the job is like always on my feet, so its nice to be active rather than sitting on my couch doing homework all day.

Anyways that's all from me,
What kind of job(s) do you do? Sitting or standing?
Do you think this affects your weight(loss)?

Onward and Downward

Hey Everyone,

Today was my weigh in day and I was down 1lb! Its a loss, and I will take it, because I defiantly don't deserve to lose any more than that this week.

I may have eaten McDonalds........ and WokBox.
OOPS!

Oh well, it was totally worth it, and I wont do it this week.

Mini Goal for this week: Track EVERYTHING that enters my mouth.

What are your mini goals for this week? Do you find that if you make them you achieve better results?
