    It really is wonderful to be able to make commitments to yourself and be able to follow through! It feels great and give you confidence for the future!

    Yes, thanks Bri. I've been tripping up on that with myself for some time now.. but having it openly declared gives it more weight somehow.

    JFT, 10/20

    1. Stay within calories
    2. Insanity Max 30 workout + extra cardio workout
    3. Try to stay positive. Feeling very discouraged today.

    Met eating and workout goals for the day yesterday so happy about that.

    JFT, 10/21
    1. Walk 10k steps. In SF for work today so won't be working out today. Get home too late and can't sleep if I work out late.
    2. Eat within calorie limits. Packed all my food for the day so should be good.

    Late again posting !
    I am on DAY 14 of my low-carb, low sugar way of eating. It is getting easier, and the best part is that it kick-started my weight loss. I am now only .8 of a pound from being OUT of the two hundreds! So I am excited.
    But - my girlfriends are coming into town, and I know I will eat more, and probably more carbs. So I am trying to just tell myself, or allow myself, to go off a little, but get right back on track sunday when they leave.

    SO even though it is late, today was more of a struggle. I want some ice cream, or something sweet.
    so JUST FOR TODAY - tonite :smile:
    1. Drink water
    2. remember how good I feel eating healthy, and don't let 2 seconds while the food passes my taste buds to ruin that momentum.

    2. Strip bed and put blankets in wash to be ready for guests who are coming in late tonight.
    3. Take breakfast lunch and snack with me to work

    J4T Wednesday
    1. Take breakfast lunch and snack with me to work :smile:
    2. Focus on sticking to calorie goals one meal at a time - went a little crazy at lunch with hummus crackers and veggies. Ate almost all my calories for the day. But I'm still full at 9pm, so I am skipping dinner and a snack. I am very happy that I didn't just continue overeating, but I was able to hold it together and come in just under my goal.
    3. Finally get to the grocery store :smile:

    Except for the Pilates, today's goals are the same. Struggling with a lot these past few days. Need to pay close attention to getting more sleep b/c I can tell I'm not feeling energized when I wake up. I keep thinking of things to add to my goals like changing to decaf but I need to take it slow in order for these healthy habits to stick.

    Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

    Losing a friend is salutary. It makes you sad and glad at the same time. We celebrated the life of our friend, Liz, and shared happy memories. She was just 7 years older than I am.

    MORNING TIP: Start your day with a full glass of lemon water. 2 cups water, half a lemon, squeeze into glass, microwave for 1 minute. You are dehydrated from sleeping, a great way to start your day.
    JFT - stay within calorie goals, don't sabotage all the good work this week with overindulgent weekend (like I usually do). Self discipline!!!
