2 more weeks

So spring semester ends here in a few weeks.  I’m looking forward to that.  I’ve been sooooo swamped with homework it isn’t funny.  I’ve decided that during the break I have between spring and summer, to do go the gym during the days I would have worked on homework.

Last Week

So weigh in was Saturday.  Overall I think it went well, however it came up so fast.  It felt like I just weight in the week before that.  I was still down again, which is good, but not as much as I would’ve hoped.  I’m happy with what progress I’ve made, with little or no time for the gym, but I still crave faster results.

Why is chocolate so good?

Ive made it pretty far in my diet without giving into deserts and things like that. Well that was until recently. It seems I've been craving a lot of sweets lately. On days where I'm home with my baby girl and my wife is at work, it's easy to just pick up a handful of m&ms or some kind of unhealthy treat. This month I really need to crank up my will power and plow through.

My how time flys.

I'll be honest, I can't wait until this semester of school is over. It seems to be eating up all of my time. I should get a few weeks break before the summer semester starts. During that time I plan on working out my body instead of my brain.

Bye bye weekend

This week has come to a close, and this weekend is moving by so fast. It wasn't a very successful weekend for me eating wise. I had a meal slip here and there. Luckily it didn't cause me to gain anything. This is when consistency gets hard

Ok so I feel like a failure today. This weekend was really bad eating wise for me. Yesterday probably was the worst. I picked myself back up again and I'm going to keep on trucking. I did also decide to lower my caloric intake today. Instead of 1900, I've decided since I don't make it to the gym to lower it to 1600. We shall see how that goes.

On a good note, happy belated Easter. Praise the Lord he has risen from the grave and conquered death to prove he is the true son of God, and so that those who believe might have eternal life.

Guilty as charged

Ok so today we had lunch brought in from jersey mikes. I have to admit that I gave into temptation today. I had half my meatball sub for lunch, and the other for dinner. Not only did I give into my temptation there, the person who organizes the lunches also does a great job with bringing cookies, drinks, and snacks. I must say I had my fair share of cookies today. My stomach is pretty bloated right now. Tomorrow night we are going out to dinner with a few of our friends. I must say this weekend has been, or will be, my worst weekend so far.
