Hey ladies! So the last few days have been a huge fail "/ Anniversary was fun (though I ended up having to pay for dinner, but he was counting on getting paid and he didn't so it wasn't his fault). We went out to eat, then sat around and watched comedy specials. Simple, but quite fun. :)
However, NOT weighing in today. I've eaten complete crap for three days (Thursday had fast food, Friday was buffet, and yesterday I just ate a bunch). And I'm on my period, which is probably why I've been craving everything. So to the girls in my group, sorry for lack of weigh-in, next week will be a big loss to make up for it :)
I feel like crap since I've been eating so much. I feel like I've completely failed this week. But, next week's brand new. :) Today I'm eating 2000 cals since it's Sunday, and then all week I'll stay under 1600.
I feel bad for messing up the last few days, but it happens to the best of us. No need in beating myself up now!
Tomorrow I'm starting couch-2-5k as well. So that will definitely help me get back on track. :) I'm doing it with FindingBeauty12, anyone else wanna join in?
Oh, and I went shopping yesterday :) Grocery dayyyy! I got a bunch of goodies.
-1% and fat free yogurts
-Fruit (bananas, apples, grapefruit, watermelon, and pineapple)
-Veggies (spinach and bagged salad)
-Calcium fortified OJ
-Whole wheat bread
-Whole wheat spaghetti and five cheese sauce (100 cals per 1/2 cup :) )
-Whole wheat flatbread
-Light string cheese
-Skinny cow ice cream sandwiches (150 cals and only 5% saturated fat!)
-Frozen turkey burgers and whole wheat buns
-A couple of Lean Cuisines
-Protein bars (for after workouts)
So I think I did good :) And, we're spending the day making food to freeze for the rest of the week. Homemade chili, spaghetti red sauce, meatballs for pasta, etc. That way when dinner rolls around and no one feels like cooking, instead of grabbing chips and dip we'll grab an actual meal. And buying in bulk saves money :)
So here's my workout plan for the next few weeks:
Strength and toning work
Strength and toning work
Tae-Bo Power (or something similar)
SOMETHING. Anything. (I never work out on Saturdays, so even a short walk is better than nothing)
Sound good? I just desperately want to be fit. Toned. Slim. Healthy. Just in good shape. I want to look and feel fantastic. By this time next year, I want to wear a bikini. This Halloween I want to be something sexy without looking like a slob. This winter I want to wear sweat pants and big sweaters and look adorable, not like I'm trying to hide my pudge.
I've been thinking a lot about my future. If I pass my GED, I start college in the fall. I want to be someone completely new. I want to look like I've never looked, wear what I've never worn, and have self-esteem like I never have before. I want to go in oozing confidence. I want to make friends, not hide in the back under my jacket. I want to be a new girl.
And it doesn't hurt that there's a gym within walking distance of my school, and I'll get a student discount :)
Also, since it's weigh-in day for the challenge, I predict some drop outs. So anyone want to be put on the waiting list in case there are a few? I know of one already, but I need a few more girls on the waiting list.
And to the girls already in the challenge, make sure to weigh-in! We only have 2 more weeks, you can do this! We can all do this! Good luck!
That's all for now, hope everyone's well!
