|Tuesday, May 10th, 2005|
Mmk, finals will be over this week, so no stress excuses anymore.
I am making a list of goals for the week. Every goal that I make/don't make I'll post.
1. no transfat/hydrogenated oils (this is going to be the hardest).
2. no fried foods (should go with #1
3. no cheese.
4. drink 3 cups of tea a day.
5. exercise atleast 3 hours this entire week (or 3 days this week).
6. I will go to TOPS on Tuesday if I'm not working.
(no matter if I've gained since the last visit).
These are the first steps that will help me move toward a healthier lifestyle.
I will feel better, I will look better, and I will be proud of who I am.

I went to the gym today for my Thursday Lower Body work out and it sucked. My hamstring was still hurting, and so I couldn't push myself today because I didn't want to seriously injure myself. Sucked!!!
And then afterwards, I went and ate a 3 egg omelete w/ cheese and some potatoes. Bleh. I don't know where the motivation went.
Atleast I tried my workout today. I better get up and go tomorrow. It'll be really hard since K's gonna be here.
Since I seem to have lost the lose weight goal... I'm going to work on the losing inches goal.... I'm sticking to the morning workouts and hopefully next week I can get back on track with my two times a day on Monday and Wednesday.
I am disappointed in myself once again.
But, my midterm is Tuesday..... so maybe some of this is from the stress/disappointment I have for this class.

I feel like SHIT. I can't believe how disappointed I am at myself. I have had a diet dr. pepper today and a real dr. pepper. I also got cookies from the vending machine and eaten 2/3 of the 3 egg omlete found at the cafetaria. BLEH. How gross. I also can't work out twice today because of a quiz that I should be studying for. I feel so gross.
I will NOT do this again. Back on track tomorrow and I WILL work out twice no matter what.
I've lost track of that goal and I have not been doing the twice a week thing.
I NEED to get back on track.
Must concentrate... must work harder.
I have started to add real sit-ups to my workout in the mornings. I'm not feeling the burn I use to feel in highschool, but I know it's got to be working something cause they're hard as hell to do.
I did 15 yesterday and 20 today.
|Tuesday, June 15th, 2004|
So, I lost track of my goal a few days ago. But I'm up and ready again.
GW: 160 by July 4th
Long Term Goal Weight: 150 (or a size 12)
That's 4.5 lbs in 2 weeks! Can't complain about that. I hope it's my new plan on life instead of me just being on my period and flushing the bloating out of my system. Now, that would be very depressing!
I'm still being very negative and comparing myself to other people. Good news is that I weight less than K's sister, but she's taller than me. This makes me feel like she and I might possibly look about the same weight, which I feel very positive about. I think we have the same build and I think she's very pretty. It makes me feel very happy to think that I might look like her.
No other news today. Hope I don't over eat on my bday!

|Day 8 WW, Day 1 BFL
1 Everything Bagel = 5
Frozen WW Fetuccini = 5
This weekend was pretty bad. I ate more than half a pizza yesterday for lunch and dinner. I wasn't even hungry for dinner but I ate some of the left over pizza anyway. I love pizza. I also didn't exercise Saturday or Sunday. Saturday evening I even went to the quarter and drank a whole lot of "cool aid" which had Everclear in it. Not exactly the best diet choice. Although, I guess it was kind of motivational cause I saw some really athletic girls who were very talented and I was jealous of their strength.
Today I started weight training. Upper body. I feel so weak right now. I did as much as I could and my arms are still tingling, but I didn't sweat very hard, my skin didn't turn red and I felt as though I didn't have a very good work-out over all. I'll talk to Nik about this tonight, cause I don't like these mixed feelings my body is having. I think I might have done a little bit of cardio before starting the upperbody, just to get some more blood pumping or something. *shrugs* I'll see.
I also didn't finish reading BFL. But, I did read some of it. Nothing new or exciting from it tho. I didn't even get to the work out part of the book. But, I didn't let that stop me from starting weight training today.
Starting the week off good. Gonna try hard.

Everything Bagel = 5
Lean Cuisine Veggie Egg Roll = 6
I have nothing positive to write right now. I didn't work extremely hard this morning at the gym, I feel like I'm losing my drive. It's only day 5! I'll regain it. I might just be tired right now. I am very proud of what I've done so far this week. I haven't posted what I've done and don't plan on it, but it's written in my physical journal.
I plan to walk what I call the "whole lake" tomorrow. It should take about 2 hours and more if I stop to enjoy the view which I probably will. I use to do that every night 3 summers ago, when I lost sooo much weight. No second exercise tonight, I'm going to see the opening of Harry Potter, unless plans change.
Maybe I'll work out twice a day on the week days, once a day on Friday and Saturday and have Sunday off? I'll see what I come up with this weekend.
I also plan to start weight training next week. I have to finish reading BFL so that I'll feel more accomplished. I feel bad about Kerry buying me the whole set when I'm pretty happy now writing in my physical journal and this thing.... but I'll use that journal too, so that he'll know I really appreciated the gift.

Either last semester or 2 semesters ago, I remember seeing this rather large woman swimming and weight training in the early mornings. This really only caught my eye because she was just a lil' smaller than my mom and she also never used her locker (she just left a pile of clothing in the locker room). Today, I noticed her doing weight training and realized that she's probably lost 50 lbs! She looks much much smaller. Not skinny, she's still over-weight. But damn! GREAT progress.
I wonder if she's doing BFL. I want to be successful like that again.
I lose 60 lbs 3 years ago and I now want to lose 10 lbs by July 4th and a total of 20 lbs before a wedding I have to attend (either in August or September). I've started working out two times a day. One in the morning that's very demanding but short period of time and one in the evening that isn't so demanding for a longer period of time. My feet are starting to hurt like they did 3 summers ago... which I'm kind of disappointed about, because I just started a few days ago w/ the exercising.
I want to feel lighter and more energetic. I don't care how it happens as long as I see results in a month.
Good luck to me!
