I'm participating in a fall challenge with one of the Sparkteams I belong to, and this week's challenge was to write a blog post about my goals.
I would like to make exercise a bigger part of my life. I have been doing well at eating better and keeping my emotional eating in check, but I would love to have exercise come that easy to me as well.
I would like to be kinder to myself.
I would like to manage my time better. I have a lot of schoolwork that I leave until the last minute and don't want to do that anymore.
I have a pair of size 14 jeans that I can button and zip up, but I would like to be able to actually wear them outside of the house by the time I graduate (December 20).

I'm feeling a bit unmotivated lately, so I think I'm going to set some rewards that I can earn when I meet certain weight loss goals.
230: Relaxing at home spa night
210: $30 on makeup
180 (ultimate goal): $50 on makeup
I don't want to spend too much money, even though these goals won't be reached within like, a week of each other, so the pedicure, massage, and facial I will get at a beauty school, which is a lot less expensive.

I ate too much today. Knowingly.
I had a bagel and cream cheese for breakfast on my way to class this morning, which wasn't too bad. I had class all day, and didn't eat anything until I got home. I'm finally able to eat real food again after my tonsillitis, so I was excited to eat real food, and I went overboard. I was super hungry because I hadn't eaten between 10:30am and 6:30pm, so I went to Raising Cane's and got two combo orders. I'm not sure why. I regret it now, but there is nothing I can do. I'll just do better tomorrow!

My throat mostly feels better, but I'm still sick. I haven't eaten anything that requires chewing in a week, and I am so sick of soft foods! I'm still weak, mostly because I haven't been eating/drinking enough, but I can't get anything down and have no appetite. It's a vicious cycle.

I've been sick for a few days and found out today it's tonsillitis. I got penicillin, which is good, so hopefully I'll feel better soon. I haven't been working out, but I also haven't really been eating. That has shown a loss on the scale, but it's a "bad" loss--which is what I consider a loss from being sick. It's more likely to come back after I start eating real food again, and honestly I'd much rather have stayed at the same weight as last week than been this sick.
