First Two Days Of The Food Challenge

Here are the first two days broken down by meal. I have to say that I am eating really well throughout the day and then something happens to me at night. This ice cream beast has taken over my body the last couple of days. I can't seem to stop thinking about it and ice cream isn't even my favorite dessert. I usually go for any sort of sweet bread product. So I am hoping to break the vicious cycle tonight. I have plenty of fruits to eat should the sugar beast arise and I am praying that my will is strong enough to override the craving.

My plan is to go to the gym tonight after I do a bunch of work at the office. So maybe I can workout through the craving. I didn't go to the gym the other day like I was supposed to so when I go tonight the scale and I will have a little chat. Maybe the number that appears will get my but in gear. Nothing like positive reinforcement. ;)

How was your weekend?

Breakfast: whole wheat tortilla, chunky all natural peanut butter, sliced banana, honey, hot green tea and water.

I've Got My Poo Kickers On.........

and I am ready to kick some poo! That's right, I'm back. The beach was beautiful and amazing but in no way relaxing. I really didn't have a moment to concentrate on the issues I needed to meditate on. Oh well, just have to do it at home which, surprisingly, has been more relaxing than the beach. I guess you really can't run away from your problems.

Anywho, I have a new game plan. I most definitely lost focus for like the gazillionth time but I am ready to get back up with my fisty cuffs protecting my face and kick some major booty. I have started exercising more regularly.... gonna try for 4 days a week and I have decided what my next 21 day challenge is going to be. Are you ready? For 21 days straight I will eat at least 2 home cooked meals a day. I am gonna shoot for 3 but sometimes with my work schedule that isn't possible, however if I do eat out it will be healthy and fresh foods. NO FAST FOOD! The challenge starts tomorrow, 8/22/08.

I am super scared to get back on the scale but know I must suck it up, put my big girl panties on and do it. So gym, here I come. Scale, you and I have a date tomorrow in which you will gladly pay for everything and I wont be expected to put out.

I have just spent $150 on groceries at Ukrops ( a fancy, dancy grocery store) and am ready to feel good again. I am ready to feel proud of myself and strong. I am ready to reach my next 5 pound goal dang it! I am ready to find me.

Sally Sells Seashells By The Seashore

Hello Readers!
Just wanted to update you guys on my little hiatus.
I am going to the beach for a couple of days to clear my head and get some perspective on the issues that I am currently dealing with in my life. I will resume posting when I return with hopefully a little more clarity on the situations.
Take care and have a great weekend!

I Am Still Here.....

Hello Bloggy McBloggersons! I trust that everyone is doing well out there in bloggerland. Hmmm... let's see. How many more cheesy references can I make about blogging? I wouldn't know because I am going to stop here. :)

I just wanted to share with you what happened today at work. It was a really good work day. Not too many clients and not too few. It was a very Goldilocks kind of day. Everyone at the shop was in a good mood and I was really feeling my massage mojo. I had a client come in today whom I haven't seen in a few months. She is actually one of my favorite clients....she is just so damned cute! Well anyway, after my kick ass massage she came out to the front to pay and just as she was about to leave she turned and said, "Girl, you have lost weight! A lot of weight." Needless to say I was shocked and super pleased. I said that I have been trying and she said that she could tell because my face and upper body are much slimmer. And of course I started doing the whole, "No, I haven't really lost that much....." blah blah blah. Olivia just take the damn compliment and say thank you!! So I stopped myself and said, "Thank you. I have been working really hard." YES!!! God it felt good to hear an unexpected validation for my efforts. I have been flying high all day.

That's all. :)
