Days till Birthday: 8

With a week and a day left to go, I have my very first taste of victory.

My very first taste of the 170’s at night, the taste of NOT seeing an 8 in the slot of the second digit, the taste of This is why I’m doing this, this is what I have been working for.

I was away on a trip to Disneyland with my school band for 4 days, then I got home and came down with strep throat, which I am still recovering from, so working out has been pretty minimal.

Today I went back to it, did the BL Challenge thingme, which I was epic fail at (it was all pushups and sprints starts and pushups and sprint starts and I am NOT good at those two things just yet), so I came in third last on this week’s rank ­čśŽ but that’s okay, I lost another pound (even though I was in Disneyland, I am not entirely certain how I managed that!).

Breakfast:┬ábagel thin, one side with light strawberry cream cheese, the other with margarine, plus a banana Snack:┬ásome pineapple and grapes Lunch:┬á3 falafels wrapped in lettuce with spicy mustard Snack:┬ásome caramel popcorn, a few coconut m&m’s (brought those back for James from Cali), half a can of 7 up (This snack was not my shining moment, don’t follow its lead!) ┬áDinner: Veggies, brussel sprouts, potatoes with gravy, a piece and a half of bread

I received a comment a while ago that really discouraged me… I would just like to put it out there that if you don’t like my blog, don’t read it, and that it’s pretty obvious that this adventure is not the easiest one I could have chosen to embark on. I have up days and down days, and I am here to communicate what I’m feeling with the world around me. I hope that some people find it helpful. Smiles!
