ok, soooo i had another day of not-so-great eating. or rather, i had a good eating day, and then a night of not-so-good eating (aka pizza! wrap! fries! alcohol!). i was completely on track exercise-wise, but cannot seem to get my eating motivation back!
however, as always, today is a new day! i have a very very exciting interview on thursday, and i am going to buy a dress today for that, so i am focusing on having a good eating day before that :) i am also planning to have a long gym sesh after work.
19 days until my birthday. 21 days until my one-year-weight-loss-anniversary. 4 lbs to lose to be in the 130s, 7 lbs to lose to be 136 (aka no longer overweight), 13 lbs to lose to hit my initial bday goal of 130...let's see what i can do :)

well, i am back from a magical weekend at a bed and breakfast...it was really perfect, and i did not really focus on my eating at all. i wasn't horrrrible, and i tracked everything, but i definitely gave myself a bit of vacation wiggle-room :) aka...came back 3 lbs heavier...
but whatever! i had a really really good time, and i am back on track now! i went to the gym this morning, and am helping a friend move (into a third floor apt!) after work today, so my fitness routine is back on track...i had a SERIOUSLY protein-packed breakfast, and am working on my 2nd cup of water.
i am excited to get back to my accountability blogs, and to focus on hitting my bday goal in 20 days!
i am super super super exhausted at the moment, and not at all excited to be back at work, buttttt here we are!

ok - TWESTEN1 totally put it in perspective...it is the beginning of the month, and a couple of rough days do not mean that the month is lost!
i am not going to lie...yesterday was horrible. i worked 13 SUPER stressful hours, hit up the vending machine at work, felt like shi*, ate a HUGE dinner (for context, i was 1,864 cals over my food plan yesterday haha...) and drank a ton (ok, it actually was really fun, but whatever). i went to sleep feeling super bloated, and i woke up feeling super....ready to tackle a healthy month!!!!!!
i don't know what has gotten into me since yesterday, when i felt horrible, but i feel amazing today! and i have decided to start a clean eating streak challenge for myself. there are 24 days until my bday, and i am challenging myself to eat PERFECTLY until then. i am still allowing myself alcohol, because...well...i am 25. but i am going to stay at 1200-1400 HEALTHY calories per day, and drink AT LEAST 8 cups of water per day.
i am not worried about adding exercise to this challenge, because a) i have somehow become a little gym rat?? and b) i know that i will not be able to hit 10K steps every day (with the b&b this weekend) so i am just going to keep doing what i was doing there.
i am not going to focus on a weightloss goal (even though that 130 on march 30th is still staring me in the face haha) but i am going to focus on feelign great physically!
this also means...NO QUEST BARS UNTIL APRIL!

quest bars...since the beginning, you have been nothing but sweet to me. you have done absolutely nothing wrong, other than sitting in my house and tempting me.
after one too many over indulgences, i have decided that it is time for us to take a break. i just have no self control when it comes to you, and it is not fair to either of us.
for the second day in a row, i have eaten 5 quest bars. TEN QUEST BARS IN TWO DAYS. firstly, i am nervous to see what that level of fiber is going to do to my system haha...secondly, that is not where the bulk of my calories should be coming from!!!!
both yesterday and today, i ate more calories than intended (today was better than yesterday, but still not my usual) and then felt compelled to go to the gym to burn off the extra calories. first of all, i have been home sick both days, so four gym trips in two days is probably not the best idea. secondly, this is not what i want my life to be!!!! i don't want to have an endless cycle of over eating and burning calories...that is not living!!!
although i love quest bars, it is not worth it. i am definitely going to go on a quest bar hiatus for a while, so that i can get back to just eating 100% whole, real foods, and not feeling the need to overeat.
i am chugging water right now to counteract the questage, so we will see what 196 g of fiber in two days does to a human haha...wish me luck?

ok, feeling kind of like i have a groundhog's day style do-over haha...i am currently in bed, watching the news, drinking coffee and eating a clementine (and no quest bar!). time to make up for a sick day gone wrong yesterday...
i was planning to go to work today, but when i was at the gym this morning...i puked in the trash can! not cute. so i am working from home today and working a 12-hr make-up day tomorrow.
this is one of those days when i am nottt excited to share my re-cap. but i will say...i went to the gym twice yesterday to counter-balance my eating, and i didn't eat anything after around 4 pm, so that counts for something, right?
anyway...here it is...
breakfast- 5 ounces of chicken w/ 2 tbsp of salsa, cup of coffee with sugar free creamer, 2 quest bars...
lunch/snacks/all-day-binge? - 4.5 ounces of chicken, 100 cal greek yogurt, 1 cup of diced pineapple, blt with 3 slices of nitrate-free pork bacon on rye bread (with lettuce and tomato, no mayo or anything), 2 clementines andddd 3 more quest bars
my macros ended up balanced, and my calories weren't HORRIBLE but 5 quest bars in a day?!?! really?!?! at least the ridiculous amount of fiber i consumed as a result of said quest bars (read: 98 g haha) will balance that out a little bit!
water - 8 cups (finally back on a water streak!)
exercise - 16,310 steps, 13 flights of stairs, 883 cals burned
i might not hit 10K steps today, as i am going to take it easy after that embarrassing moment at the gym this morning...BUT i am definitely going to focus on my eating/water today!!!
26 days until GW #1...10 lbs to go...hmmmmm haha
