April Goals

So it’s officially been 2 months since I’ve started this whole ‘caring about my body’ thing. Also, considering it’s a new month, I figured I’d set some goals up! 

  • As of right now, I’m calling this month “No Binge April.” There’s really no ring to it, but that’s alright. 
  • I want to start C25k again. It’s getting warmer which means I can run outside without any excuses. Not really a fan of running on the treadmill. Knowing me, I’ll trip, fall, and die. 
  • I was thinking about a push-up or squat challenge..but..WHY NOT BOTH?!

I ate a lot today.

Today kind of sucked. Was feeling shitty, used the excuse of “everyone gains weight over spring break, so i can chill.” Chilling, however, should not include bingeing. I don’t know why I’ve been bingeing a lot lately. This is my third binge in the last 2 weeks :/ I don’t want to continue this. I’ve lost too much weight to stop. I’m in a good place right now. I don’t want to go to the gym and work my ass off just to undo the damage I did tonight. It makes me feel terrible about myself.

I know what I did and I have to live with it. Tomorrow ill do better. I’m not just saying that. Although late, I’m going to add a bunch of my April goals tomorrow. I’ve got to get my ass in check!

Weigh in Wednesday

SW: 177.2

CW: 176

-1.2lbs


Considering how many times I overate this week, I’m surprised I lost over a pound. I’ve been noticing so many changes in my body. I feel like I have muscle now, BAM. 

Anyway, now I must make the rest of spring break great and continue on down the path of weight loss. 

No gym today. Just NYC..and healthy choices.

Didn’t do much today. Went to the gym in the afternoon and did the same workout as yesterday. There was hardly anyone in the gym at around 2pm..I think I’ll keep going in the afternoon for this reason. I don’t mind people, I just feel weird huffing and puffing while a stranger’s right next to me. I guess I just don’t want them to be disgusted by me.

Tomorrow is NYC to go see Wicked. Pretty excited! A whole day in the city. You know, I’ve been there quite a few times and I’m still not sure if I like it. I also don’t have a clue how to navigate o.O

Ate well today. Didn’t eat back my exercise calories which is good!

Kind of an odd day today. Woke up, went to the gym and did 45 minutes on the treadmill and 45 mins on the elliptical. Came home, ate breakfast, fell asleep. I had to go to my moms coworkers house for dinner so I knew I’d need to save extra calories for dinner tonight. 

I think I did a prettyy good job today considering I wasn’t eating dinner at home. Tried to take small portions of things. Instead of a whole glass of wine, only had half. Instead of a whole piece of matzah, only had a quarter. 

All in all, it’s been a successful day. Probably going to the gym tomorrow morning also. I love spring break.

So..this happened today.

Woke up and went to the gym for an hour. Some family and friends came over and we all ate together, which was nice, but it wasn’t the usual big family get together. It was sad not seeing my aunt and uncle and cousins :/ Easter ended at 7pm which is so strange because usually it lasts until at least 10.

As you can see, definitely went over in calories today. I was doing kind of okay and then we were sitting in front of all of the doughnuts and ice cream cake and pie..and that’s where I went overboard. I don’t know. I know I went over, but I’m happy that I stopped.

Now that all of this Easter stuff is over, I’m hoping I can return to a normal schedule. However, I have to go over my mom’s friends house for dinner tomorrow. I have no idea what the food is going to be like and I know it’s rude not to eat a lot. Why can’t I just have one day where I can control my environment and food intake? Ahh! Oh well, this is life, and with life comes obstacles, obstacles in which I shall surpass.

Going to the gym tomorrow morning. NO, not with the intentions of making up for today, just because I want to start my day off right. You can’t outrun a bad diet. Period.

All in all, it was a nice day. Life happens, and I’m not going to feel bad about it.

Night!

What an awesome day, seriously. I haven’t had this nice of a day in a really long time. Woke up early and went to spin class. Ahh and the instructor was awesome. She played really great music and talked to Jenn and I afterwards. Stayed a little longer and used the elliptical and also tried out some of the weight machines.

After the gym we went to get something to eat and then got manicures and pedicures. So. Nice. I haven’t done that in at least 5 years. Also tried to pick a spring color because tomorrow’s Easter :D!

Bought some new jeans from old navy because my old jeans don’t fit anymore (hell yeah!).

As per tradition, a ton of baking went on today. We made wheat pies, ricotta pies, and of course, pizzagain. All of those things are just..amazing. I already added up all of the things I’m eating tomorrow. I’m not missing out on any of those three things. No way.

Going to the gym tomorrow morning to get in some cardio. It’s going to be a good day :)

EASTER, I love you. I love dying eggs.

Tomorrow morning I’m going to spin class. I haven’t had this instructor, so I’m a bit nervous. I’m going with a friend though, so hopefully we’ll share the pain together. Also, I’m not too sure whether to eat before the class or not. I’m thinking not because the last time I did that, I felt like puking. No bueno.

After spin hopefully we’re going to go get our nails done, which is really nice because I haven’t done that in so damn long.

Also, my mom has graciously agreed to buy me new jeans that I’m in serious need of.

I’m especially proud of myself today. Stayed within my budget, didn’t freak out about my binge, and am just continuing with this process. Today, I’m a winner.
