It's officially day 14 of my 28 day streak. I'm sitting at work, and again like last night there is more junk in the breakroom. It's becoming downright ridiculous. Today it's doughnuts, chips, and cheesy popcorn. I'm not even tempted today but I have to remark on it. Why do nurses eat the most junk food of all? We all know better! Anyways I'm sticking to my diet and going strong. Yesterday was so warm and nice outside. I went running for 30 minutes then walked for 15. It felt really good. I am so excited for warmer weather and outdoor workouts!! My workout plan for today is to do strength training on my arms, shoulders, and chest; followed by an hour of good cardio. Once I'm done with this blog I'll be working on my meal plan for today as well. I was very worried that I wouldn't be able to make it 2 weeks without junk food. Now I know it can be done, and I'm ready to conquer the next 2 weeks and be looking good for my birthday! No more excuses!

It's day 13. I'm sitting here at work, bored and craving junk. AS USUAL there is junk food at work. Chips in the breakdown, and a huge box of cookies at the nurses station. I am being good and resisting even though today has been particularly hard. I was craving junk food all day before I even.got to work. I'm happy to say I've stuck to my diet all 13 days and have not slipped up. I've been working out like a beast too. I'm excited for my weigh in Sunday. I'm expecting a good loss. The plan for today is to go home and sleep after work then when I wake up I'm going to run a couple miles then run the monument steps for 30 minutes. Then it's back to work again at 7pm. I have my meal plans all figured out for today too. All set for another good day!

It's day 9. I'm sitting at work on the night shift bored. I'm happy to say I'm still doing awesome with my clean eating and working out. I have my meal plan all made out for today, and later tonight my husband and I are going to make meal plans for the rest of the week and go shopping. I have been eating tons of fresh fruits and veggies, and I can really tell a difference in the way I feel. I have more energy and just a better mood all around.
Btw I guess I can't count very well. I thought I had 30 days from the day I started until my 26th birthday, but it's actually only 28days. So I will be changing my 30 day streak to a 28day streak. (I'm having cake on my birthday!)
The other thing I am really going to focus on in the next few weeks is my running. Before the holidays came I was running 4miles at a time non-stop. But then the crappy eating and the even crappier weather really slowed me down. Saturday I went running and I was dying after just 2 miles. So I'm going to look for a 5k this month to train for and get my butt in gear. After that I'll be working to my ultimate 10k goal.

I'm very excited to say that I've made it through a whole week of clean eating. I did not slip up once and I am so proud of myself!! Last night I went out with my friend and our kids to dinner, and while everyone around me was eating pizza, calzones, and fries; I had a grilled chicken salad (just chicken and veggies- no cheese, no croutons, nothing.) A few weeks ago if I had a night out like this I would have stressed the entire day about slipping up, then gone out and slipped up anyways. I'm happy to prove to myself that I can go out and be social, and not mess up my diet. I eventually will have cheat meals but for this 30 days I am staying true to my goals and proving to myself that it can be done. I've worked out every single day this week so far, and after this blog I'm going running before work. I officially weighed in today and I've lost 5lbs since Sunday. This has been an awesome week, and I'm ready for another!
