Just recently discovered blogilates. I'm on my phone do I can't post a link but this girl named Cassey is amazing. She has a website, a YouTube channel, a clothing line, and posts very frequently. She has a slim down meal plan that I want to try... But I'm afraid to start because I always fail. I do like her YouTube videos... They are short and I'm able to do a few at a time. Super sore today from calf raises and candle dippers. Check out her song challenges for a good workout!!

I've purged three times since I've been in Chicago. It's just to hard to avoid the food catered in. How am I supposed to say "no I'm just going to sit in the restaurant without eating Chicago deep dish. "? You can't. Purging isn't a good option, but its better than nothing I guess. Big bad weekend ahead. Brother is coming to visit me and we are going to a weekend concert. Yay

In Chicago for work... Catered breakfast and lunch yesterday... And I ate half a muffin and a burrito. Not good. And we hardly got up at all... My butt hurt!! After work I did go take a walk, I think it was about an hour, maybe a little less. That was nice. I'm sure I didn't burn a ton of calories but at least I didn't stay immobile the whole day. We had filet for dinner... I only are half of mine, but I did have two potatoes and a very large glass of wine. Today I'm going to have a zone bar for breakfast... Because I can't imagine anything catered in will be healthy.

One small step at a time seems to be working for me. I got rid of what I gained over the weekend and I'm even a little under last Fridays weight. I need to do a good job of portion control this weekend. Next week I'm traveling which means breakfast lunch and dinner catered or at a restaurant every day. Fruit, salad, yogurt, chicken. That's what I'll try to stick to!
I'm about to go for a short run before dinner and a movie tonight. No popcorn for me!!

I binged all weekend. It was like in slow motion. I watched myself doing it screaming inside my head "nooooooooo" but I didnt stop. I feel like I probably ruined all of last weeks progress in 2 days. How unfair is that... I restrict for 5 days, and then 2 days I'm bad, which ruins everything. I don't want to step on the scale this morning. I'm going to because I deserve to know what happens when you treat your body like crap.

Sitting in a breakfast meeting at work and NOT HAVING ANY of the sausage biscuits etc. I've been sooo good this week- not screwing up!

Fall.  Football. Chips and Guac.  Beer. Cheese Dip. Burgers.  Labor Day.  How fun.

Luckily for me, the boyfriend has to work all day, so we are NOT at a cookout.  Unluckily for me, I'm holed up with a pesky UTI and I've been feeling super sluggish.  I managed to go to the gym and walk for an hour after watching 5 hours of television... jeez.

Did you know that 1 corn chip has 1 gram of fat in it?  Doesn't that make you sick?  It makes me never ever want to eat chips and guac again.  But... that's possibly my favorite snack ever. 

Seems like holidays are the time for cheat days. Is that how everyone else feels? Temptation is the devil, in my's hard to constantly say no and leave it all up to willpower. If you're ready to make your healthy lifestyle a priority, you've got to start with a strong foundation. Indulgences are necessary from time to time, but staying committed to a routine will help habits stick for long-term success.

I need to:
1. make goals
2. schedule workouts.  This is a big one for me.  I can ALWAYS find time to do something else.
3. plan ahead.  I need to make my lunch before bed, or know that I have a Zone bar waiting for me at the office.  I don't need to get caught off guard by the people who ask me if I want to take a walk to grab a bite, beer, etc.

I'm going to spend a few minutes right now and plan the next weeks workouts.  I know my calendar fills up quickly, so this is a great idea for me.
