hi chrissy! i figured you were just crazy busy with the wedding and what not. congrats by the way! it is frustrating to go up a size and a half, but i feel more focused and determined as ever. i am 176, but i weighed in at 5pm so i am aiming to get back to the 160's by july because i believe a lot of it is bloat that will go away pretty fast.

i think i am going to make a new CC account because i don't like my username so just a heads up.

yesterday i had a good deficit and right now i am eating oatmeal with raisins, 1tb of PB and a splash of milk. i am so happy to not be in class. i feel like i actually have time to get things done!

sara- yes i was not expecting 176 maybe 170 though. talk about denial. i blame taking classes; the chronic stress/study-eating takes it's toll. coupled with the holiday break in between. unfortunately i hurt my back a week and a half ago so i have had to go slow at the gym. it is healing up, but i feel like there is no point pushing through it since i am not training for anything. i feel like it's better to baby it so i don't have back problems the rest of my life. basically i am stuck on the elliptical and stationary bike with some calisthenics and stretching after. BOOOORRRRRINNNGGGG. at least it's something. my eating goals are to stay around or below 1800 cals. and i am doing my 'cleanse' right now which means no added sugar, no cheese, no white flour, no alcohol. it really helps me to gain mindfulness back and break my new habit of just going straight for a bite. i totally know what you mean about cardio, it's easy to skip when you get a good workout from lifting. but there is something magical about being able to run for longer than 30mins haha. are you still going to do the smoothie thing? long reply, thanks for listening (reading?).

hi ladies, i don't know if you'll read this as we haven't really been doing the forum stuff lately. i had been avoiding the scale for the last few months and finally hopped on to find out that i am at 176. basically i gained 20lbs in the past 8 months. it was a huge wake up call. so i am doing my best to eat really clean and get my workouts in. so far so good.

chrissy- things are going well. how are you doing?

sara- i thought i was following you on insta already.. did you get a new account? i think it's good to take a break from this site periodically. i LOVE the veggies/fruit smoothies they totally make me regular! way to go on the workouts.

i have been keeping up with workouts and healthy eating. i did morning workouts during the week, then a hard interval run on saturday, and then i vigorously cleaned my apt for 4+ hours on sunday including 5 loads of laundry up and down a flight of stairs. i enjoyed a piece of strawberry shortcake on saturday for my niece's bday party, and then a chocolate cookie and some ice cream on mother's day. both were delicious and worth it. i haven't weighed myself in a long time. i feel like it might just discourage me at this point. so i am going to get to a place where i fit comfortably into my clothes and then see where i am at.

hi girls, hope you are both doing well. i know we are all busy and it's sometimes good to take a break from CC.

so i have begun what i am calling operation: no excuses, which is basically me getting my ish together and getting my work outs in no matter what. even if i have finals in a couple of weeks. i am doing a combo of new rules of lifting and whatever i can fit in on other days. i miss feeling strong like i did when i did solid weight workouts. i am also watching what i eat too. it's tought, but i feel like it's crunch time now because it's gone on too long and i want to fit back into my clothes!!! talk to you ladies soon.

chrissy- i feel you. sometimes it seems impossible to be consistent! keep at it girl.

cals were in check yesterday and actually on the low side due to how much i ate the day/night before. didn't make it to the gym this morning unfortunately though. i need to go tomorrow for sure.

Hi Ladies, i know we are all busy these next few weeks but here is my update.

i am going to vegas this weekend so i am a little extra motivated to get my workouts in. i have been getting up and going to the gym in the morning and counting calories, but more importantly eating healthier. hope you are both doing well.

sara- there is no way i can workout when i am hung over. i would just focus on eating healthy because i can sometimes win the battle. haha. it's good to go have some fun.

hi ladies. i have been able to get to the gym in the mornings and it feels great. eats have been pretty good and within range. i am SUPER busy as usual, but i am hoping to just keep being positive and go with the flow instead of stressing out about the little stuff.

chrissy- woohoo for baby making! you will get there when the time is right.

sara- that sounds tasty, yeah i will likely sign up for a couple classes if i can't get it together on my own at my gym.

last night i ate too much because i was studying. today i am determined to stay within range. this morning i had coffee with half and half and a green smoothie with vanilla whey. so far so good. also, since i am taking a test in class, i will get to the gym tonight! i am going to wear my gym clothes to my test then go straight there. if i am lucky i will make it to 630 spin.

chrissy- i am so sorry for your struggles! that sounds really frustrating. keep hanging in there though. i think things will work out.

sara- how was your friday workout? i found a crossfit near my apt so i might hit that up once school is over. we will see though.

well my eats weren't very good this weekend. not too bad sunday though at least and i didn't get drunk so i got a lot of studying done. still no gym though. really struggling with that. i have a math quiz tonight, then i have to study for my psych test tomorrow. 5 more weeks yay!

good morning ladies. once again i managed not to overeat last night. YAY. it feels so good not to be too full all the time and my bm's are better too. i was feeling a bit stressed because i have a lot of studying to do this weekend as well as two close friends' birthday celebrations so i decided to take a half day today at work and i am so relieved! this morning i had greek yogurt with quinoa, peanut butter and stevia, coffee with half and half only, and i just had a fruit and veggie smoothie. i have a lot of energy and i feel great. i am going straight to the gym after work, then going home to study study study. then it is bday surprise party/dinner at a new restaurant in town called 7. i think it's comfort food, but the menu isn't online so i can't pre-log. we will see what happens i guess, should be really fun!

sara- your dinner sounds so great! the smoothies are awesome out of all those things the mint is what takes it to the next level so i highly recommend buying mint.

ending yesterday at 1800 cals. not bad considering i got home from math and wanted to stuff my face. i had some left over shrimp pasta, two string cheeses and then since i still wasn't satisfied, i made some almond milk with stevia, vanilla and cinnamon. i was definitely full after that.

this morning i have had a small bowl of kashi go lean with almond milk, and i am soon to have some coffee with soymilk.

sara- funny you say that because i am drinking a veggie smoothie right now. it contains: lemon, orange, carrot, kale, spinach, parsley, mint, ginger, cucumber, orange juice, aloe juice, plant protein, frozen peaches, frozen banana, frozen blueberries and ice. it turned out great! good luck to you. i don't know if i could do that because i tend to drink smoothies too fast.

chrissy- that is great. i am also counting today and going for a deficit, and trying to be more active in general (ie, running up the stairs, walking around etc.) tomorrow is my gym day. YAY!

woohoo i managed to not overeat yesterday go me! here we go day two.

sara- those macarons don't sound like too much but i know when i go out to eat it all seems like way more than the normal portions we make at home. i bought light coconut milk so i can make something like those quinoa burgers. can't get them out of my head. i will probably skip the pineapple though.

chrissy- how was your day yesterday? one day at a time is very important for me, at least at the beginning.

chrissy- i am with you. today i am not going to overeat! even if it's just for today. i know i can not overeat for ONE day. and i know it only takes one day to make the next days that much easier. we can do it!

finished with house sitting. back to reality. i am really trying to stay on top of my school work so that i can get workouts in. now that it is light in the morning i am going to try to workout even if it's a 30min run in the AM. my BF is going to TJs today and i am having him get my old calorie count staples. greek yogurt in individual cups, string cheese, ground turkey, cereal, almond milk etc. gotta rely on my old staples and make a schedule so i can feel my very best. even if i don't lose a bunch of weight right away; i know i will feel better if i am on track eating wise and at least getting some activity in. my legs are craving a run today. i will probably have to wait till tomorrow morning.

breakfast was plain oats with raisins, coffee with 1 cup organic soymilk. no added sugar yay!
