I know what started the downhill spiral, had some ... Read more
Easy weekend. Scale agrees. Now what?
So I had a recent backslide with binging. Then last weekend I fought down the urge and didn't binge at all. Then this weekend, I was never even tempted to. It was awesome. I'm feeling great, mentally at the right place with my eating, and the sc... Read more

Back to Back bad weekends
I don't mind making mistakes. I really don't. It's when I don't learn from these mistakes that I get frustrated with myself. I went home for the weekend to see a friend who had a week of leave from the Marines and had one night that was eerily s... Read more

I got up to work out again this morning which I’m really proud of. 4:30 am is freaking early after a 13.5 hr work shift and then pizza with friends afterwards. Only had the fitness center to go to, biggest weights they had were 50lb dumbbells. D... Read more
Day 7- Preperation for nothing
Today’s whole mindset involved me making room for meeting up with a group of friends this evening who love baking treats for get-togethers. I think every time we’ve done something it’s involved cupcakes, cookies, cheese balls, ect.
With tha... Read more
Day 6- Oops... Mexican
So I don’t know if many people read these at all. They’re definitely not the most entertaining blogs, but writing some thoughts down at the end of the day is nice to keep me conscious of my decisions, and also to not overly freak out about what ... Read more

Traveling review and looking forward
So I got back from my first business trip and while the pressure was on with continuing to eat right, I feel I did very good. Best of all, I learned that it really wouldn't be that hard to enjoy good food and stick in my calorie ranges. The only... Read more

Day 3- got a workout in
Sorry the last one was so hectic. I didn’t have my thoughts in order the following day and rushed it. Plus I was still just upset at the crappy meal and how my wine glass kept getting refilled on me. Being my first trip, I wasn’t comfortable say... Read more
Day 2- Buisness traveling role model
So I'm typing this up the next day because we got back to the hotel late after dinner. The day was going so phenominal, until dinner. Not the worst thing that could happen there, but I really didn't enjoy it.
First things first tho, I began... Read more
