I am seriously stuffed right now. So my plan was to make pasta for dinner tonight. While I was making pasta I decided to have a turkey sandwich and that led to some baked cheetos. I had dumped the pasta in so I thought I would eat that too. Well, by the time the pasta was done, I was stuffed. So I dumped the sauce on the pasta and through inthe peppers and onions and put it in a container for luch tomorrow. Go me! A year ago I probably would have eaten the pasta even though I was stuffed and then chowed down on something else.

Did I mention that I went to the gym this morning? I don't think I did. It was great. I lifted weights for an hour and cardio for 45 minutes. It sure did feel good! I love squats!
Let's see. It has been a while since I have updated. Usually that means I am not doing so hot in the weight loss department which is true right now. I have just been so busy and haven't been making it to the gym as much as I would like to. Also, when I am busy I eat crap. So those two things combined have brought my weight back up to 235.

I have had a very stressful couple of weeks, but my eating and excercise habits over those weeks is not excused.

So, I found a fun way to help keep me accountable. It is the 2005 Self Challenge! You don't have to be a subscriber of the magazine, so a take a look and if it seems like something you would be interested in, I encourage you to join. The end of week 1 is tomorrow.

I was thinking today about what made last year so much easier then now. Well, I was only going to class. I wasn't interning. I wasn't working. The only thing I had to focus on was eating and working out at the gym. Man was I lucky! I now realize how much effort losing weight actually takes--a lot! Well I am in this for the long haul and even thought I get discouraged every once in a while, I have come quite a ways!

2 weeks from today I will be a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding from home. I hope the dress fits. I haven't really gained or lost any weight since I ordered it in December. I also hope the shoes my mom bought fit me =)

Umm, yeah so I don't even want to step on the scale tomorrow morning. I already know it will not be good. I just hope I am still in the 230's! I definitly need to get back on the horse. I fell off the horse 2 weeks ago and I was left by the road.

I can't go to the gym tomorrow after class so I am going to have to go after I get off owrk at 6.

Hope you all have been doing well!
