Best Stuff Ever...

I have just discovered the best drink ever - Sugar Free Cranberry Apple drink mix. It's from Walmart. It's the Sam's Choice brand, I think. It is fantastic. I'm so tired of the boring old Crystal Light flavors, plus I absolutely love cranberry juice and have missed being able to drink it. There are other things I would rather spend my points chocolate and ice cream. So I'm very excited about this new drink mix. Actually, I don't know if it's new, but I've never seen it before. My brother started buying it. I wonder if they make a Cranberry Grape version because that would be even better. I will have to look.

No Self Control

I don't know what my problem is, but I have absolutely no self control. One minute I'm determined to get back on track and I'm doing better and the next I'm shoving a Brazenhead burger in my mouth for lunch. And let's not forget the Snickers bar I had for dessert last night (the neighbors brought over an enormous bag of full-sized candy bars and 2 lb. bag of peanut M&Ms) or the breakfast of champions I had this morning - Pop Tarts and a diet Pepsi. I guess at least I jogged 3.25 miles yesterday, but I doubt it's going to make a difference given how much crap I've eaten in the past 6 days. I must find a way to get back on track.

The Next CR

The 2nd Annual Law School Girls Reunion was a blast. I ate so much that I'm still not hungry two days later. I don't know how that's going to play out on the scale on Thurs., but oh well, girls will be girls. I'll just work extra hard the next 4 days to be OP and exercise and hope that I maintain. At least we did go hiking on Sat. instead of sitting around eating the entire day. We hiked for about 3 hours at Hocking Hills State Park. I think it was about 5-6 miles. So I worked off some of the calories I took in...maybe. All in all a good weekend. I'm looking forward to next year's trip already.

By the way, I hope your first day in your new section is going well, the Next CR. ;-)

FIF Week 3

This week wasn't the greatest. I lost 0.5 lbs. this week, which is fine, but what really bothers me is that my week was unsuccessful on the exercising front. I did so well for 2 weeks waking up early to either go to the gym or do pilates with my mom. This week...bleck. I only exercised once - Mon. The other days I overslept. It was ridiculous. I could not get up for the life of me. And it wasn't because I was staying up too late. Most nights I was in bed by 10-10:30pm. I don't know what my problem is/was. Next week must be different!

Aside from that, everything is going pretty well. I'm very excited about going to Hocking Hills this weekend for the 2nd Annual Law School Girls Reunion. It's going to be a blast. I am sad that not everyone can make it this year. JM, we'll miss you! Also, Broccoflower, I demand (because I'm the boss of you ;-) ) that you attend next year's Hocking Hills trip. With the advent of SkyBus, there are no excuses. Just putting that out there.

Fabulous in Fall Week 2

I'm down 2 lbs. this week. Hurray! Working out is paying off. I've been doing pretty good at getting up in the morning. I have only missed 2 scheduled workouts in the past 2 weeks. I'm already noticing a difference which is nice.

It's also nice that I have been making better food choices in the past week. Well, except for eating my weight in tortilla chips and salsa at Abuelos on Wed. night, so maybe I would have been down more had I not done that. On the other hand, I did not order my customary burrito; I got 1 steak and 1 chicken with veggies skewers. It was very tasty and Core program friendly.

In any case, I intend to keep up the good work this week as I'm finally moving in the right direction again. I need to fit back into the clothes I bought for Vegas in time for St. Thomas, plus I've gotten some really cute, new work clothes that I want to wear, but I need to lose a few more pounds for them to look nice. Curses for being in-between sizes again! Ok, I'm out.
