Sorry! I feel like I go missing from here a lot. I don’t mean to. I really don’t, but I just have a hard time keeping up with online things a lot. I don’t really use my computer as often as I used to, so I don’t tend to post that much. I don’t mean tooo.
Anyway, I’ve been doing pretty good the past week. I’ve managed not to eat over my calorie count and I’ve running every day except for the weekend. I actually have muscles in my legs now…. Can you believe it? I can’t. I put my hand on my calf and I’m just amazed. It feels completely different than it did before. Maybe that’s weird, but I don’t mind.
I weighed in today, and I haven’t lost anything. At first I was a little upset by that, but the more I thought about it, the better I felt about it. I feel like I look good. And my waist measurement and mid-section measurement have both gone down an inch. I think that my legs have been gaining muscle, which could have been why the scale didn’t go down. Or maybe I really didn’t do as well as I was hoping this week. Either way, I’m not upset about it. I’m doing good and feeling healthy, that’s what matters.
Hi, everyone!! How’s it going?? I had a good day yesterday food wise, I think.
Cinnamon Nature Valley Oat Bar - 5pp
PB&J with light wheat bread - 5pp
1/4 cup pistachios - 5pp
Cottage cheese - 2pp
Blueberry Acai Yogurt - 3pp
Chicken Ceasar Salad - I don’t know what to assign for points, since I went to a restaurant. I don’t think it would be any more than 5 though. It wasn’t a very big salad.
I went out with my friend and her boyfriend last night. I don’t get to see her very often since she doesn’t live in the area anymore. After we had dinner, we went out for drinks and I got a really good strawberry margarita. I’m not really sure how many points that was. I have no idea how to score drinks. But it was just the mix on ice, not frozen, so maybe it wasn’t too bad??
As for exercise, I did good yesterday. I ran better than I ever have! I went to run laps at the gym. In our gym, 12 laps make a mile and usually I have to stop to walk a few of those… But I only had to walk 3 laps. I ran 9. I was proud of myself.
After I ran the mile around the track, I got on the crosstrainer machine and did a mile on that.

I think women of all body shapes and sizes are beautiful, and they all deserve to love themselves. Unfortunately, this thinking does not apply to my own body.
Hey, everyone! Things are going alright today. I’m a little overwhelmed with all I have to do and how I don’t really have much time to do it in… But I’m going to relax a little bit and head out for a run! I’m going to go to the gym to run at the track. It’s a nice day out, but my school has a program going on where you have a time card that you get signed each day you work out at least 30 minutes and when you have ten slots finished, you’re put in a raffle for some pretty good prizes. So I figured if I’m going to be working out anyway, why not???
It would be really awesome to win something! Haha.
Anyway, I finished all my homework for tomorrow, so now time to go and run.
I’ve been eating healthy today after a not so healthy weekend… I’m going to work hard this week! I would love to be in the 160s on friday! We’ll see.
On Thursday I’m going to go check out my school’s Judo demonstration and see if I want to join the club and learn it. I thought it would be a great workout and I wouldn’t mind knowing some self-defense techniques!! According to their site, you get an average of 1000 calories burned during your workout, since they practice from 7:15-9:30. I like the idea of burning that many calories.
