This Week

I've been pretty good this week. I did have one bad day (well... bad for me). On Thursday I didn't eat breakfast, I had 2 pop tarts and chocolate milk for lunch and a Cafe Rio salad for dinner. It wasn't horrible, but I should be eating better. I've also had a couple of dum-dum suckers this week.

Other than that I've been doing good. I really need to get back into the work-out mode. I've been crazy busy though and yes I'm STILL sick. It's all in my chest. Not fun at all. I haven't had much salad this week. I really need to buy some.

I've been craving pop really bad! I had an orange juice and a chocolate milk this week to try and get over the craving (even though they aren't water, it's better than carbonation) but it just hasn't worked. I want to splurge and have some Cherry Pepsi at my work Halloween party I'm throwing on Monday, but I won't because I need to be good, plus I need to be a good example for others watching what they're eating.

How's everyone else doing this week? Any tough cravings?

Will I Ever Be Over This Stupid Cold or Whatever It Is?

I'm so ready to get back to my normal self, although not ready enough to go to the

Everyone that caught the stupid sickness from me got over it within three days. I think I'm broken. It always takes me an EXTREMELY long time to heal, whether it's from a sickness, a bruise, a scratch, whatever. I bruise really easily, as in the tiniest bump will cause a big bruise and they last for months. If I get a scratch that breaks the skin I'll have a scar for at least a year. I'm not even exaggerating. Even a little zit will make a scar that lasts for month and I have to cover it up with makeup. That's one of the biggest reasons I take such good care of my skin. I've talked to doctors before, but of course they don't know what's wrong with me. Perhaps the cleanse will clear out some nasty worm or parasite that is causing issues... Wouldn't that be nice?

I do need to break down and get in to the doctor tomorrow though. It's been almost two weeks. I'm starting to have sore muscles in my back from coughing so much and it's totally moved into my chest.

I'm still eating pretty good, but the working out has totally gone bye-bye. I'm just not up to it. I'll never reach my goals if I don't do some sort of work out :(

Start of a New Week

Ok... I'm being totally brave and posting my measurements & pics for the week...

weight: 172
waist: 36 1/2
hips: 43 1/4
r. thigh 25 1/4
l. thigh 25 1/2
r. arm 14 1/4
l. arm 14 3/4

Arm measurements seem to fluctuate. I think it's because I probably don't hit the exact same spot every time. All of these measurements are a lot higher than I was in December-March, but lower than when I started a few weeks ago, so it's both bad and good. My weight back in March was 158. That's the last time I had weighed myself (I don't really care what I weigh).

I'm not really cramping with the cleanse any more, so that's good. I hope it's doing something.

I'm still sick. It's been forever and I just don't seem to be getting over it, so I haven't really worked out. I think that's why my measurements are the same as last week, but at least I'm maintaining even being sick. My hips are 1/4 inch smaller which makes me happy. I really wanna get to 35 inches on my waist by Halloween!!! I guess it's time to work out even being sick :( I'm still avoiding sweets. My will power is improving. I'm not really craving sweets or pop anymore.
