Entry 339: I'm all in
In the end of cleaning out my kitchen from junk food I ended up with FOUR paper bags (1 not pictured) FULL of junk food! All the way from canned sliced potatoes & black olives to pancake mix & syrup. A bunch of bad choices if you ask me. I gave all the bags of food to my Mom which she was happy to take :-) It wasn't easy but I needed to get rid of it all in order to proceed with this process.
Today I woke up and made a cup of coffee that I took to work with me. I have yet to get back into the groove of my green tea and lemon water but it's only a matter of time because I'm getting myself a thermos and am going to make a pot of green tea and drink it throughout the day at work. I have no excuse for not doing my lemon water this morning. I do have a couple lemons in the fridge, I just didn't do it. I have plans to start that tomorrow. For lunch today I had raw broccoli and for dinner I had a veggie sub on flatbread from Subway. I need to go shopping and get some healthy stuff but only to a bare minimum! I will only buy what I need to survive LOL.
We have this candy bowl at work from Halloween and I am proud to say my fingers came no where near it today! I was tempted many times but stayed strong ;-) It's the little things....
I also got my workout in! I need to make my workouts a priority and feel the need to have to do them before my head hits the pillow. Today I did a workout in the basement after work. I did a half hour on my elliptical/recumbent bike and lifted weights and I feel really good. These past couple workouts have been pitiful but I know as time goes on I will only get stronger and stronger. I AM DETERMINED.

So have you been taking some time off from working out? I only worked out once in the past week and a half but in my defense I was super duper sick the entire first week. I am terrified that I'll gain like 15 pounds back any day now though lol! Is that possible ?! I've just been so busy with work, the PTO, union stuff, and figure skating / hockey now too for the kids this week! I just need to find a balance and make time ! You are so good at making me feel not-alone! :)

Shanna, I had COMPLETELY quit everything for a good few months! I wasn't working out and I was eating WHATEVER I had the taste for. I was bad and I was having a hard time trying to find my balance but after weighing in yesterday and seeing how much I have gained back (not saying how much at the moment lol) I realized there will never be a balance and I just had to jump back into it and make time or excuses. You are NOT alone!
