Out of oblivion...

...for now.

I love me a good 3-day weekend. Sleeping until 2 in the afternoon, getting 12 hours of sleep, eating whatever I want. What's not to love? That's exactly what I did this Memorial weekend. Relaxed ate some yummy Colombian and Mexican food. And then there was some pizza too. I watched lots of movies and cuddled with the boyfriend lots. It was the perfect weekend.

But now it's back to reality. And I have to face that one pound gain that I had last week. Ugh! Last week started off so good: my eating was on point and so was my working out. But then, like always, it turned to caca. I started eating lots of junk and I only made it to the gym 3 days. 3 days?!?! That's very upsetting especially since I pay so much in fees for the gym. I loathe wasting money (no I don't).

God Bless the start of a new week!

The boyfriend has inspired (more like bullied) me into to starting a new plan. He has been doing so good on his plan and he feels great (except for his sinuses that have been bothering him). And so I was like, "Hey, I want to feel good too. I need to get in on this." It's no big secret, he's just really watching what he eats.

So, the new plan is to journal everything. No more soda (sob), junk food, or sweets. And it's back to the gym this week. It's going to be tough, especially that no soda rule, but I think I can do it. I know you all are thinking "This chick sounds like a broken record. She says this EVERY Monday." But I'm for serious this time.

Seriously. =)


  1. Hey no matter how many Mondays you say it, at least you are trying! I have a feeling it's going to stick this time!

  2. You're really lucky to have a supportive boyfriend like that! Have you tried herbal iced tea? It's my summer drink of choice. The raspberry and blueberry from Celestial Seasonings are really flavorful. I seriously don't miss soda.

  3. Omitting soda is a great step and can make a huge difference! And 3 days at the gym is still much better than ZERO! Keep making healthy choices.

  4. Stopping by from Healthy You!

    I think I am addicted to tracking my food. I use a tracker application on my iPod touch. I oddly look forward to entering my food and exercise and seeing how I ended up for the day, everyday.

    Then again, I'm weird.

    Here's to a great week!

  5. kimmi - thank you!! I have a feeling it's going to stick too! =)

    karen - that sounds yummy. I'm going to have to try that!

    MBJ - thank you!! I'm on day 2 and it's not so bad without the soda...yet.

    Curvy - I'm like that too. I love journals!! I'm just not that good at keeping them =\ (or being honest on them)
