  4. Soooo. Hi! Yea, I've been MIA, but I have a REALLY good reason. I was on vacation! I was writing down everything I was eating, but it was stressing me out, so I said fuck it and just enjoyed myself. Here's where we are at for today, at least Breakfast - Yogurt and granola I forgot about a class I had, so I couldn't eat my actual breakfast. I need to get in early enough tomorrow - San Pellegrino Lunch - Roasted chicken breast - Super Spinach - Honey Mustard Dressing - Apple - Peanut Butter Snack
  5. Breakfast - 2 eggs with butter - 1 sausage patty - Roasted sweet potatoes - 1 cup of cantaloupe - 1.5 sourdough pretzels with peanut butter *After I ate the cantaloupe, I felt hungry, even though I wasn't really.

Lunch - Chicken breast - Chicken drumstick - Salad with ranch Dinner - Salad with Thousand Island - 2 Babybel cheeses - Water crackers - Tuna salad - Celery -
  6. Thanks! Yes. Yes it does. Bedtime is embarassingly early - lol. I have weird sleep. Sometimes I have trouble falling asleep, sometimes I pass right out. But I HAVE been sleeping like a rock lately. I am giving credit to my new blanket. It's magic The combo I am doing seemed to work great at camp (and I got even less sleep than I do now). I am actually trying to limit the carbs (not get rid of completely). I don't need to have potatoes or rice or pasta at every meal to feel satisfied anymore. I know I wasn't getting enough veggies or protein
  7. HA! Right? It should be a jaw workout. I used to have protein powder, but I've just been lazy. I do an hour in the morning. Usually it's hardstyle kettlebells, but sometimes they mix it up with some bodyweight like today. I definitely need something. I don't know if I am just tired lately or I need the protein instead of the carbs first thing. Plus, with a shake, it seems to get digested quicker so I can use the fuel quicker, you know? Also - thanks! (I can't believe I forgot that part)
  8. Weigh in day! Down 1.4 pounds - WOO! Workout: - Clif bar - I need to get protein powder.... Breakfast - 2 eggs with butter - 1 sausage patty - Roasted sweet potatoes - Yogurt with granola (still hungry a half hour after I ate) Snack - Mini Snickers Lunch - Chicken Drumstick (I am finding that I don't like these unless I have just ripped it off a rotisserie chicken) - Chicken Breast - Salad with Ranch - Peanut M&M's (6)
  9. Thanks That's kind of what I was thinking, too. Overall, it's such positive changes that I want to keep going! That I can't wait to do it again! LOL
  10. Well, in my first week, I had one day that I didn't complete everything on the list. I am not sure what that means in the Challenge world - if I fail or keep going. I am currently still going. All my updates are posted in my Battle Log. I've gotta say, I am really liking the clean apartment! Of course, now that everything is picked up, I'm gonna have to start some scrubbing soon. The hardest is the PT exercises. I thought it would be the Fast Food, but I am still riding the afterglow of camp. Veggies are really easy because I can just have a salad!
  11. Breakfast - 2 eggs with butter - 1 sausage patty - Roasted sweet potatoes *Totally different than yesterday. Completely filled me up Lunch - Grilled chicken with onions - Side salad with Ranch (instead of rice - go me! - Two bites of plantains (yech) - 2 pieces of grilled/buttered bread Dinner - Chicken breast and drumstick - Carrots and Celery - Hummus and Garlic bagel chips - Grapes - Roasted potatoes (still some leftover ) - Cajun snack mix After Dinner - I forgot I had
  12. Workout: - Luna Protein bar Breakfast (should be similar most of the week - yay meal prep!) - 2 eggs with butter - 1 chicken sausage patty - Roasted sweet potatoes * didn't fill me up Maybe because today was workout day. Also, I just remembered I have yogurt! I can add some yogurt in with bfast Snack - Cantaloupe - Pretzel with peanut butter Lunch - 2 Chicken Thighs - Stir fried veggies Dinner - Chicken breast - Salad with Ranch - Roasted potatoes I am feeling

  14. Breakfast - 1 egg scrambled - Butter for the eggs - 1/2 mason jar of pineapple - 1 Chicken Sausage patty Snack - Half a Clif Bar - Some popcorn - Some trail mix Lunch - 2 Chicken Thighs - Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette - Herbert's Blackberry Lemonade - Less than half a piece of cake. It wasn't delicious, so I tossed it. I've never done that. I usually still eat it all. Dinner - Yea, I went out. The photo was dinner, but I barely ate half the potatoes. Then, I had 3 cocktails and o
  15. That sucks about the timing. In the after-camp questionnaire, there were some questions about location and timing. Who knows, maybe it will change next year! I can kind of understand it as a first step against spammers. Just need a way to weed out the extra anxious people - lol I am defintely still struggling with the eating. It's a whole new way of thinking for me. I have been counting calories in some form for so long it is weird not weighing anything. Right now, it is just trying to get rid of any guilt associated with food. Like, it's ok to buy bagged lettuce
