I failed

As happens nearly every weekend, I failed at keeping to my diet. I had drinks, fries, and lots of carbs. I don't really know why I do it, other than I have issues with depriving myself whatever I want at that exact moment. I do it when shopping, eating, and even drinking.

So here's a new pledge. I will go without carbs at least 5 days this week. I will work out at least 4 days this week. And I will limit my drinking to Friday and Saturday. I need to realize that a) I can enjoy myself without all of that crap, b) I will be happier if I can lose some weight, and c) I will save some money and use it to buy something cute and fun when I'm back to my normal body.

I will also be better this week about posting. It will help me to reflect on where I go wrong, and even better, where I go right!

Turning it all around - June 14th - 145 lbs

25 lbs to goal

When it comes to sticking to a diet, I have a tough time with days 1-2, then again over the first weekend. If I can make it through that long, I'm usually good for a while. More recently, my biggest issue is when I travel, which is often. Tomorrow I'm traveling again, and it's going to be tough, because I'm not only traveling, but am at a conference, which means lots of bad food. With my dietary restrictions, finding anything to eat will be a stretch, so I'll likely eat anything and everything I'm able.

Today, thankfully, we had community service that kept me working outside, and I was able to walk a few miles. Fresh fruit it my savior, and I'm looking forward to making a delicious tofu stir-fry, without noodles, or rice. I've always been best at attempting the low-carb diets because i can eat more of the other stuff. I may try, however, to start cutting unnatural foods out.

I need to be healthier. With a family history of high cholesterol and cancers of all kinds, I need o be more conscious about what I eat, how much I work out, and keep myself moving forward towards looking better in my beautiful Louboutins.
