Paleo Diet

           Today I'm finishing up my third day or the Paleo diet. I'm still doing my research about this diet but my mom has been following it quite faithfully for the last month or more and she has had some great results and she says she has a lot of energy and less cravings and less headaches. I thought I would try it out as well sense I am home from college for Christmas break and I can just eat whatever she is preparing.
          This is what I know about the Paleo diet.  Paleo is short for paleothilic diet which is the time period that the cavemen and woman lived. This diet is based on things that people in this time period would have had access to eat. It's basically animals and vegetables with a little bit of fruit.  Science has shown that this ancient way of eating is the way our bodies were designed to eat and that it's the healthiest way to feed your body. The first two days were kind of hard because I am so addicted to carbohydrates that all I wanted was crackers and cookies! But today I have felt more in control of my cravings and I have enjoyed the foods I have eaten. Tomorrow I will weigh in and start my workout routine. (I have been really bad at working out lately) If anyone has any input on the Paleo diet I would love to hear it!

Same number as yesterday:( But I'm pretty sure tomorrow is going to be a lower number.  It has been a good diet day for me.  I got up and went to the gym and only ate 1,129cals which is 129 more then my goal but my workout burned a little over 200. So that counts?? I'm going to count it.  I feel great and I am full of excitement of the possibilities I can make for myself! This is it! This is the weight loss plan that is going to finally work! It is It is.  I heard a quote that says "Your going to get in life what you expect" I expect to weigh 120 and look fabulous. I hope everyone else is doing great and staying healthy and happy!!!

Fresh Starts?

I have moved out of my house and now it's time for me to take control of what I put into my body and how I work it out without my mom hovering over me and feeding me!  My goal is to workout once-twice per day and eat 1,000 calories per day. I met a guy recently who I know is obsessed with his body and working out and I like him and I want him to be physically attracted to me.  I also want to feel great and confident about myself.  Tomorrow is my new start. I will share my stats tomorrow.
I would love some support and tips!

Wahoo! This weight is a victory for me. I haven't ever seen this weight before. I have always made it down to 159 and then I gain and stay between 160 and 165 which is my comfort zone. I am so happy to see this number! I know it's still a lot of weight and that I still have a long journey ahead of me but. I am happy to see it :)
Corn Chex (240)
Sugar (140)
Skim Milk (80)
Vegetarian Burrito (456)
Popcorn (31)
Skim Milk (80)
Chocolate Chip Cookies (892)
Pretzels (110)
I don't even want to add this up!
Running and Elliptical (-456)
So I ate way to much cereal for breakfast and way to many cookies tonight. I feel sort of sick and I'm afraid I might gain tomorrow morning. I don't want to go to the gym tomorrow and I am feeling unmotivated. I have been working 7-12 hour shifts this week and I am exhausted! I am hardly home and my body is drained!  I want to hang out with this guy who is so sweet to me but I keep having to cancel because I am so exhausted.
Question..... So I don't mean to sound conceited or stuck up but I think I am a pretty good looking girl and this guy I am liking is... well... Lets just say I am probably out of his league.  But I still find myself attracted to him even though I know I can do better. What do you think about pretty girls being with uglier guys? I mean he treats me so well and is so concerned and real with me.

Net 598
only 98 over
So today was a pretty hard day for me I got up at 6 and went to they gym because I had to be to work earlier then usual. Worked a 12 HOUR SHIFT! I am so so so tired. I felt like I hadn't eaten anything all day and I was starving when I came home so I ate cereal and then I couldn't stop myself and I ate Flan as well. My day would have been perfect if I had just eaten a fruit or something but no... I had to blow it. Oh well, It was a really hard day for me and I really don't feel that guilty because I am so exhausted and I feel like I burned it all off. I guess the scale tomorrow will be the judge of that assumption.

Not bad. I am pretty proud of myself today and I want to share why.  So I walk upstairs from my room and I am overcome by the smell of chocolate chip cookies.  I then proceed to have an inner battle with myself (should I just have one? maybe two? I already used all my calories maybe I shouldn't have one). So what did I do? I brushed my teeth and checked my blog for thinspiration.  I am feeling pretty good about it! :) Day three is over now moving on to day four.  I am actually sort of excited to step on the scale tomorrow morning. Wish my luck and I hope you are all having success!
