When I know that I have a party coming up where I will make unhealthy food choices I pack my own food with me. Because I know me, not only will I eat the brownie and icecream. I’ll sneak another brownie and more icecream when people aren’t around. I cant just have one taste, I feel like I have to have the entire thing, like I will never eat food again. If I don’t taste the unhealthy food, I wont eat more.

I don’t feel weird eating my veggies at dinner because at least they know i’m eating. I don’t want to lose weight and people think that I am not eating. That happened this past summer. I went on vacation with my sisters and I ordered a ceaser salad with grilled chicken. No cheese, no croutons and dressing on the side. The waitress got it all wrong so I only ate the grilled chicken. Then at the store on the way home I grabbed an apple to snack on and my sister said “is that all you are getting?” My sisters know of my past and as soon as we got back they told my mom that I wasn’t eating.

In fact, I was eating. I just made healthy decisions….If only I could make those all of the time.


When I first want to lose weight about ten months ago I counted calories and exercised. Then about 3 months ago I got the Tosca Reno’s Eat Clean books, great books! Anyways, I stopped counting calories, and started eating clean. Then I stopped eating clean religiously and stopped counting calories. Now I am all out of whack with my healthy lifestyle. I also used to wake up early every morning and for the past month or so I have been sleeping in and not really being active.

My alarm was set for 6:45 this morning and I was out of bed at 6:50! hooray for me! Calorie counting here I come!


4 egg whites w/ spinach, tomato and mushrooms. 1 medium banana= 211 calories


So, I stepped on the scale this morning and my eyes just about popped out of my skull. 156.2, I can seriously not remember the last time I weighed this much. I do not know when I let myself get out of control with eating, but obviously I did. I am ashamed. I am sad. I will get over this. I have stocked up on veggies and fruits yesterday on our way home from PA. The Boyfriend and I took my neices to the hands on house. We stopped at a vegetable stand on the way home and I got:
-acorn squash
-spaghetti squash
-a dozen tomatoes
-a dozen apples
-a green pepper
-2 zucchini
-4 kiwi
-a bunch of bananas
For a total of $10!!!


To Do:
Online class work
Call service learning location

Clean out car

Oh…the gym. I missed the gym so much. i did an hour on the AMT machine and burnt 719 calories and went 5.9 miles.

I am now eating an apple and barney almond butter = 275

Well Good Morning…It is a Saturday morning and I am up and at ’em at 4:45, well I woke up at 4:10 – had to shower and get ready for work.

Good News: I won’t be doing this for long, I got a new job! Whoo-Hoo! Good bye sweet treats everyday! I work at a bakery now. Here is a little taste of what I walk into everyday. Just be glad you don’t also have to smell what I smell at 5:20 AM when I walk through those doors.

The new job I am going to is a temp job as a physical therapist aide, I am currently a student physical therapist assistant. There is a huge difference between an aide and an assistant. I am so excited to be an aide before I actually do the real thing. I am going to go all the way and become a physical therapist, its going to be a long journey but I’m ready.

The aide job starts in mid-November and is over in mid-January. This is also a blessing because in mid-January my school schedule changes to 4 days a week, all day long. So, the company is going to hire me for a desk job at their gym in mid-January for the weekends. Which is triple awesome because its MY gym and then I really won’t have any excuses not to go to the gym since infact I will be working there! Whoop Whoop!

MORE GOOD NEWS- Julie from Julie GoLean is giving away a sweet gift of Nature’s Path. Awesome right? Right. Check out her giveaway and the rest of her blog!


My size 8 khakis are feeling a little snug. This could be because its my “girl time”. Or because i’ve been bingeing. Whatever it’s from, I don’t enjoy it. The end. 🙂

This too shall pass.

After work, the Boyfriend and I are going to my parents to carve pumpkins with my sisters and neices 🙂 Tomorrow we are taking my neices to a corn maze, pumpkin patch or to see a movie. We have yet to decide. Its really up to the girls. *I hope they pick corn maze/pumpkin patch!
