I finally passed the 40 pound weight loss mark (42 pounds to be exact) and what did  I do to celebrate??  I’ve been doing some late night snacking!??!?!  WTF??  I’m hoping after this week, that I’ve finally broken the BAD habit but ughhhh.   The pros to this, I enjoyed every chocolatey morsel of goodness.  The cons…  I’m pretty sure I may have gained back at least 5 pounds this week. 

I’ve definitely been embracing the “Tomorrow is a NEW day” motto this whole week so I don’t get too down on myself.  I mean everyone has slip ups, right??  And I am human after all. 

Just a side note:  This vlog from Olivia and Hannah from couldn’t have come at a better time this week.


Making time… March 26, 2013

VinesIt’s not easy to always make time for myself. I have a full time job and on top of that, my commute ranges from 35 minutes to 1 hour one way so on top of spending 8 1/2 hours at work I’m also on the road for another 1 1/2 hours.  Combine this with trying to get a full 8 hours of beauty sleep (some nights I stay up too late and suffer) and I’m left with 6 hours.  I could do a lot in 6 hours if I really thought about it.  So what am I doing with my 6 whole hours of free time?  Ummmm..  at the moment, nothing I’m particularly proud of.  Lets see, I stay in bed for an extra 30ish minutes checking YouTube and Instagram and I get an hour or two of geek time in at night.  Where’s my exercise time?  Oh that’s right, I don’t have time for that!?!?!  Oh brain… what happened to you?  Why must you fill my head with lies sometimes?

So… it dawned on me the other day that I have time in between my time.  Huh? Wha?  I had a brilliant idea that I could get a few extra steps on my 15 minute breaks.  Why didn’t I think about that before?  In the last few days, I’ve discovered that I can a) walk about 3/4 mile in my 15 minutes b) get my vitamin D dosage for the day c) find beautiful things to photograph d) and burn more calories!  Yay!  I’m a genius!

My next plan of attack, making time to get my ass to the gym.  The scale and I haven’t been getting along very well.  I’m thinking it’s a love/hate relationship.  I’m pretty sure we would be best friends if I didn’t sabotage the relationship with all this extra sugar that I can’t stop craving.  Go away cravings! I could also move my ass a little more often to burn off all the added sugar I seem to be inhaling lately. Can we say Cardio??
