Yes it really is hard as I unconsciously order it whenever someone asks what I would like to drink.

I was on a good soda break for a couple of weeks at one point and was intent on keeping it up. Went to a restaurant one night and habitually ordered a Dr. Pepper. Didn't even realize I had broken my streak until the day after.

 

Your FBI goals sound awesome!

I need help with push-ups and sit-ups. Sometimes I think I need someone to be there watching me or "holding my hand" so I can work out. <-- Honestly this is what I pay my trainer for. Sit ups and pushups can be done anywhere but I won't do them unless someone is there with me. Watching, talking to me.

Day 2.5

 

#1 No. I didn't do the pushups or situps. I woke up this morning and ran. I had talked to my trainer earlier about wanting to improve on my speed. I ended up doing that. So yes I do work out but not on what I said I would. So I have to reel myself in to what my goals and measures are.

#2 No.

#3 No.

#4 No.

 

Day 2.6

 

#1 No.

#2 No.

#3 No.

#4 No. 

 

*I also binge at on the Saturday night. I was upset and crying because of something that happened at work. I did you not it was the last hour of work. I had a slice of pizza, 5 chicken wings, and some shrimp and scallop linguini.

Week 3 Summary:

Goal #1 F - I have this weird mental thing about push-ups. I'm scared. Simple as that. Whenever I go down into a push up position I instantly think about me falling on my face and breaking all my teeth and dislocating my jaw. That's all I think about and imagine the blood and then I just stay there until I tell myself that today is not the day I go down. Yeah... help?

Goal #2 B - I'm at 39 out of 45 push ups. Woot. Just 6 away? Heck yes I can do this shit. And to think when I started the last challenge I couldn't even do one sit up.

Goal #3 - I went one over. Wow!!! Right? I mean it's crappy but still just one. Not too shabby. During week 1, I went over one time, the second week I didn't go over and only used up one cheat. This time I went over one time. I know that if I were "in the moment" I wouldn't go over. So week 4 is about being in the moment and realizing that no I do not want a coke. And how about I not spend $3 on something I don't want to drink? Just saying.

Goal #4 - Been reading the same first book. Lordy, history is tougher than I remember. It takes me 40 mins to read 20 pages. It's so sad. But I have to keep going. I already had my interview for the internship and I start on the 27th.

Day 4.4

 

#1 - I did 20 pushups and then did other pushups to help me to getting pushups. My palms are raw from where my hands would slide. And twice I went down too hard on the stair that I hurt my boobs. I have a bruise across my chest. BUT HEY I did them.

#2 - Not yet.

#3 - No SOda yet =) I think I get one cheat day but really... 3 days to go I think I can handle myself.

#4 - Set up to meet my professor on the 30th which gives me a deadline of when to start writing my papers.

 

 

Over and out.

It's awesome that you kept up even after going down too hard! A good way to look at it: you went down too hard, it bruised you, but it wasn't the end of the world and didn't hurt you badly. You have nothing to fear from the pushups; they did their worst and you worked through it! I hope you've done well on soda this week, and good luck on your papers!

I will not be leveling for this challenged. I learned a lot about what my priories and in turn what my main quest is. Currently it is not the FBI. If you check out my Life Goal and my madness about the PhD that should have given me a clue. Anywhoo, 

 

Goal #1 - Failed

Goal #2 - Failed. 

Goal #3 - B! I went a total of 30 days without coke. OMFG. YES!!!!

Goal #4 - - Read 1 book, I took 1 GRE test, I started my internship, saved $132 for my transcripts, I signed up and started!! my Russian classes, I visited with my former professor.
