    Gabe's new start

    Thanks Plitog, that's a good idea. Actually with that said, this last week I was able to quit drinking coffee. I was dependent on it, so it was uncomfortable. Aside from that this last weeks diet was kind of 50/50, hopefully this next week will be better.

    Well, this last week did not go well. I did exercise quite a bit (and I'm proud of myself for that), but the diet part was a complete flop. I'm not sure why, but I have it in my head that because I always fail at changing my diet, then I'm going to fail now too. I guess I need some positive thinking or something.
  3. Ok so yesterday had good points and bad ones. Breakfast: apple Snack: fruit cup (nothing added, just fruit) Lunch: almond milk, berries, orange, kale and spinach. Supper: 2 homemade burgers, chips, potato salad, and bourbon. On the plus side I did not make cookies/ stop for junk food to 'celebrate' my course work being over. On the negative, I just ate the supper my in-laws made, I could have done better.
  4. It's easy for me to put off starting my current challenge, so I decided that the best thing to do was start logging here again. Breakfast: kale, spinach, orange, berries, and almond milk Lunch: Burger, few chili fries and milkshake. Supper: -Grapes So not so great today... definitely not paleo, but at least I only ate when I was hungry and stopped when I was full. Tomorrow will be better.

    Thanks, that is so true. Things are getting crazy, and it's easy to stop caring about your goals but at least these ones are doable in all scenarios.
  6. Admittedly I failed my last challenge. There were too many rules to remember... okay that's an excuse, I just failed. But I have not backslid as far as progress goes... so at least that is something. My goal this time around is to simply be a healthy adult. I'm not a child anymore (it's time to stop making excuses like 'I can afford to eat this way now'), and I need to learn habits that will keep me healthy for my adult life. To accomplish this goal I will do three things: 1. Exercise for 1 hour everyday (walking, yoga, whatever as long as I move for an hour a day). 2.Only eat when I am
  7. Ok so this week wasn't bad. I did very well with my exercise (20 min of yoga in the morning, 40 min of running and stretching at the gym), this next week I want to start walking home after school, and the week after that I want to add a calisthenics program into my evenings so that there is exercise throughout my whole day. Nutritionally I did pretty good about 5.5/7, and I did not gain any weight so that will help me to relax and just live. However, I weighed myself more than I wanted, and I caught myself mentally tracking calories, and one night looking them up. So that part will take a
  8. I have to admit, I'm struggling with this right now too. The need for chocolate just kills, it's all I can think about. I guess I fall into the 'give in' category too, as I keep a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips in the house and have about 1/2 cup of them (which is usually all I need). I'm trying not to count calories, but I have to admit this deviation from my normal habits is still distressing to me.
  9. Lol, exactly what I was thinking
  10. Ok, so my over-arching goal for this challenge is to become someone who enjoy's her life and body. After my wedding, I gained quite a bit of weight, and for the last eight months I have been obsessed with loosing it. And I have lost about 9 lbs. bringing me back down to the weight I have been most of my life. (not my goal, but something I can live with= a perfectly healthy bmi). However, this obsession has lead to fasting (24-48 hour periods), counting calories, counting macros, a binge and then the whole thing starts all over again. So for this six week challenge I want to break that cycle, a
  11. Well, the challenge is over. I did drop down to 138 lbs. Which is not as much weight loss as I would have liked. With that said, I don't think I did very well with calorie counting... and the fact of the matter is that I might have to learn how to have a healthy, normal relationship with food before I starts dieting (that whole walk before you run thing). However, it took quite a bit of time, but over this challenge I did learn to let go, and relax. And I did move most days (and started running again, which I'm very proud of myself for). So I'd say I passed 2/3 of my challenge.
  12. Well this last week was good and bad. I wasn't perfect, but I did incorporate a 48 hour fast into the mix (still not sure those are healthy or not, seems to be a lot of conflicting opinions) so I dropped down to 136. So yay! Almost at my goal.
  13. Thanks, I find I get obsessed with the scale, and when it doesn't move everyday I get discouraged. I'm starting to think that the best thing I can do for myself now is just leave the scale alone, be the healthiest version of myself that I can be, and don't worry about the rest.
  14. Well I did pretty well this last week (I'd give myself 80%). But still no weight loss, so I might have to settle for better habits and wait for the weight to come off when it feels like it.
