I have been doing pretty well my first week really back on plan. My only downfall has been the triple chocolate chunk cookies at the cafe on campus. I have had 3 this week. I am not beating myself up over it because they were worth it and I had the points. It's not like I ate 3 in one sitting. I have been to the gym everyday I have planned. I took a break on Thursday. I got up this morning and was at the gym by 9:30 and did a hour of weights and 30 minutes of cardio. I haven't had anything to eat yet because I don't like to eat before I go to the gym and I just took a shower. I am planning on making some egg beaters with peppers and some oven fries. This afternoon I work a basketball game and I get free concessions food. This will be the real test. I am going to limit myself to one thing. It will either be a pretzel (the healthiest option), popcorn, or a hot dog.

I have gone 3 days without eating after 9 PM. Go me! After I got home at 1:30 AM I so wanted a snack, but I crawled into bed instead =)

I have peaked at the scale and I like what I see. I am not going to weight myself until my weigh in day on Tuesday.

I have proven to myself that I can get back on plan, now I just need to stick with it. Writing my week out on my whiteboard last Sunday really helped. I am going to do that again this week too. Also planning meals a day in advance has helped a lot too.

I hope everyone enjoys their Saturday =)

I didn't go to the gym today and I am ok with that. A day off is good every once in a while, but I will be back tomorrow.

I feel really tired today too.

I have eaten pretty well today too. No snacking. Night one of the no eating after 9 challenge is complete. 6 more to go. The weekend will be the big test especially with 2 late night shows on Friday and Saturday.

I am off to bed!

I have a major problem and involves eating late at night. I find that when I get bored I eat. And man did I eat last night. It was nothing too bad. I didn't really go over my points, but still I really need to work on that. I think I should set a goal of not eating past a certian time for a week and see how it goes. I think 9 PM would be a good number. Ok, so for a week starting tonight I will not eat past 9 PM. I will update you on the progess.

I hit the gym for 60 minutes of weights and 20 mintues of cardio. I have tomorrow marked as an off day on my calender, but I might be headed to the gym anyway.

I did pretty well eating wise except for the snack size smore cand bar I had at work ( I love those things!!! They are so damn good!) and the tootsie pop I had there too.

I hope everyone has had a good day!

I lost a pound this morning! The scale above reflects that. However, I have a feeling it is a fluke, because I surely didn't deserve it. Also I forgot to mention that yesterday I turned down 4 different lunch invites. I had planned to go to the gym at lunch and I stuck with my plan. Normally I would have gone to lunch and then gone to work out (and had a crappy workout because I had just eaten) or skip the gym entirely. Go me! Here is to another day on plan!

I am feeling a gain tomorrow, but that is ok. I am back on plan and I stayed within my points today. I think this was the first day in a looooong time that that has happened.
So my first day back on plan has gone pretty well. I had oatmeal for breakfast. I forgot my apple that I was planning on having for a snack. So I had a mini kit kat instead. Not so good, but I journaled the 3 points and I will move on. After work I went to the gym. I fit in an hour of weights and 20 minutes of cardio. I had a smart ones for luch for 4 points and I added some veggies to eat for 2 more points.

Right now I am trying to figure out what I will have for dinner and a snack.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Monday!

Keep the comments coming. I know there are more of you out there!

I had a realization on my walk to the gym this morning. I have not really lost any weight in the past few months and I haven't gained, but my behavior hasn't been deserving of a loss. I am not journaling like I used to, I am not measuring our portions like I used to, and I am not excercising like I used to. Hopefully that will all change soon. I am working less than 20 hours this week and I want to focus on myself.

I did make it to the gym today. I did over an hour of weights and 25 minutes on the bike. Go me!
