total calories consumed: 1230/1400

16 minute jog [-200]

total calories burned: 200

net calories for day: -520.

daily goal: write down every morsel that goes into my mouth. I need to get back into the habit of this for a little while so that I can once again get on track with my food. I know for myself, I don't lose weight if I'm not paying attention to my food, which is the reason that I have gained all this weight this year. I'm working on changing it though.

edit: I am super upset and disappointed in myself. I took my sociology test online and I second guessed myself on several questions, thus changing my answer to the wrong one instead of leaving it on the correct one. Due to this I ended up with an 80% on the exam. This means that in the entire rest of the class I can only miss 10 points. Yes, ten points. Each exam question is worth 2 points, so for the final exam I can only miss 5 questions or else I lose my A. I am not taking the most basic sociology course and getting a B in it. I will not kill my GPA over some stupid course, it's just not happening. Due to this I'm off to go and read the next chapter and take actual notes on it. I have to beast this next exam. I have to because I don't have a choice.

good thing about today: I am at -520 calories, which puts me on track for losing one pound a week. I just have to be sure to get around this much each day to ensure that I am losing weight. If I get around -500 each day I should lose more than one pound a week because I don't include all of the walking I do while I work at camp each day, plus all those flights of stairs. Haha. For once, I'm feeling confident about losing weight again. I can't wait to weigh in on friday morning and see what I did this week. :)

  1. I know what you mean.. it's so difficult to write down every little thing that you eat. If you eat a cracker or a small handful of cereal, you're just like.. "eh, that doesn't really count. Or, it won't make a difference really." But, then that ends up adding up through the day. I feel like that's my biggest downfall! :(

    Good Luck
