I know, I know I only had a 2 day work week, but I'm ready for some down time to clean the house and just chill! Being gone wears you out! ;)
I started out my morning with a random breakfast. We haven’t had a chance to go to the grocery store so I’ve been scrapping up things for meals!
My morning was CRAZY. I ended up having to be gone all afternoon for a presentation so I went to lunch early.
My presentation was a financial aid talk to 8th graders…needless to say I put 2 students to sleep and I don’t really think they were too interested since college is 4+ years away for them! But it is a recruitment tool and it was interesting to hear from the middle school students! It’s been a LONG time since I was there! ;)
After getting back to town after my presentation I met up with Kyle at the grocery store. Finally we will be re-stocked!
I spent the better part of my evening catching up with you guys!! I feel like I’m so behind! :)
Oh and I almost forgot! Kyle and I purchased a copy of Runner’s World for some reading material while on vacation. And we both LOVED it!! I think we are going to subscribe to it. I can’t wait to try some of the workouts they have in this issue!
And one last thing my wonderful friend, Jenna, who did a guest post for me on Monday while I was enjoying Florida had a few follow up comments I wanted to post!
First, I want to thank everyone SO much for their sweet comments!! It took a lot of time and work to get where I am today!
Tips for shedding lbs!- well the best tip I can give is to stay motivated and keep that desire to want to lose weight in your head... When you do "cheat" a little, just get back to that mind set of losing weight and get right back to your normal routine of eating and exercising and burn those calories you took in!:) I try to eat little meals throughout the day, my normal eat/snack times right now are 9, 12:30, 3, 6, and 8:30.
I have seen living proof (my aunts) of people that have lost so much weight and put it almost all back on because they let one "cheat" lead to another, and another...and another! That has given me the dedication to commit to myself and my health and to not let that happen to me!
And one last thing, I do have a blog, but have not been on it in awhile!! It's www.jennamarieslife.blogspot.com... you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
POINTS = 12/23
WATER = 120 oz
EXERCISE = none
note: Ok I had NO idea I had only eaten 12 points today. That is WAY too low for me. I don’t want you guys to think I’m starving myself. But it’s already 10pm so I really don’t want to eat anything more. I am going to make a conscious effort tomorrow to get all of my points in. I don’t want my body to think I’m going from one extreme (eating a lot on vacation) to another (eating only 12 points/day).
