So...I have a confession to make...yesterday was my first workout in a week and a half.

I just haven't had any time at all to get myself to the gym. My days were very...consistent. Wake up, study, go to work or class, come home, study, sleep. That is literally how I have spent pretty much every day for the last week and a half. Needless to say, my eating has only been halfway good on top of it.

But yesterday, I went back to the gym...and I have to admit, it felt good to be back. I'm VERY proud of the fact that I went all on my own...nobody needed to push me or make me go. I WANTED to be there. I didn't do my usual workout...just did 33 minutes on the elliptical...but it was a good start to getting back into it. Today, I'll probably go back to doing my regular workout.

I did notice that at one point I was telling myself that I'll stop at 20 minutes on the elliptical...but 20 minutes came and went...and I kept going. I love when that happens. It shows me that I totally have it in me...I just need to make myself push through!!

After the gym, I hit the grocery store & picked up a bunch of stuff I know will be good for me. This way I have NO excuses for not eating right :-) Yay!

I did weight watchers. it worked, but It took FOREVER. last year, a month before my best friend's wedding I wanted to lose 11 Pounds, and my mom found this diet that works fast. I lost 10 Pounds in about 20 days, and it wasn't one of them creazy low carb diets or anything. they give you this menu that you need to follow, and it menipulates your hormones, and forces your body to burn fat. here's a realy cool website I found about this diet- some girl tried this diet, and she created a blog and reported every single day untill she reached her goal weight. check it out- this diet is easy to follow and I lost the weight fast and haven't gained it back since :)
Here's a link to this girl's blog:
