Today I did relatively well until I hit late afternoon/evening, which is around the time the cravings come in.  Of course, I gave in to my sweet tooth but rather than letting it discourage me and quitting… I just took it as a lesson and a small bump in the road that I would have to overcome.  I ran for 30 minutes and did the usual crunches, push ups, stretches, etc.  Tomorrow I start squats.  My lil’ sis just completed her month’s worth and before September was over, I could already tell a difference in her leg shape and strength.  Get ready thighs and buns!  Well I have a 6 am shift, which means me getting up at 4.  Good night!

Wow… I’ve been slacking.

I need to break bad habits such as starting something great and not finishing.  Here it goes… and I don’t mind if my eyes only see this.  I’m doing this for me anyway :)

I’m not really sure what my starting weight is.  Since it’s past midnight, I just ate a snack, and I completed my second day, I’m just going to go by what my weight was about a week ago.


GW: feel amazing, strong and healthy

I started this new lifestyle change on Friday, September 28th.  I finally made the decision.  My overall eating was good and I ran about a mile along with push ups, crunches, plank, stretching, etc.  Energy levels were a bit low but I’m keeping in mind that I’m getting over this sickness that has held me for a little over a week.

Yesterday: Saturday, September 29th.  I had a packet of oatmeal, an egg, a few strawberries and a cup of honey vanilla chamomile tea for breakfast.

For lunch before work, I had another packet of oatmeal.

Lunch break (around 5), I had another oatmeal packet, a few celery sticks and a cup of greek yogurt (shoot, I eat a lot of oatmeal).

I enjoyed a tall cup of coffee from Starbucks for the drive home.

Once I got home, I made half a can of vegetable soup with a few crackers.  Then had a tiny bowl of Arrowhead Mills Organic Spelt Flakes with a bit of honey and soy milk.

I went for a run tonight (a little less than 30 minutes), push ups, crunches, leg lifts, thigh lifts, plank, stretches.

Late snack I made a sunny-side egg and had two slices of Colby Jack cheese… already I need to break the late night snacking. Crap.
