water,salt, and being a woman just don't mix sometimes.

There is honestly no point in getting on the scale this week. I didn't binge but I did eat some sunflower seeds as a health snack because I was craving something salty. However I did not keep in mind the time of month it was. The next day I woke up retaining so much water that even my fingers were swollen. Note to ones self STAY AWAY FROM THE SALT. LOL. As far as my goals for last week the only one I didn't follow was writing 3 times a week. I did drink water and I did do active things. And I did not beat myself up for not completing my goals. All in all I feel pretty damn good. I did find out this week that I have pre-diabetes. Just more of a reason to get healthy.

Goals for this week.
keep track of food intake, water intake, and activity level(idea taken from stages of change)
sign up for spring semester
no eating in bed.
no candy
set reminder on phone to weigh in on sunday morning before I eat.
look for job.

I feel like this is going to be a great week


  1. I struggled for a really long time with the eating in bed thing. In my early 20's I had a humiliating experience with someone joining me IN bed and finding the crumbs... obviously I don't know the whole story behind your eating in bed but it took me a long time to overcome it... it also was a part of my night eating problems... anyway.
    those are great goals. let us know how it goes!

  2. I think you should get on the scale anyways! It's not always going to be a good week-I had a similar problem last week too, we're only human. But it was important for my mind to get back on the scale, just being accountable for my actions made me feel like I had already made a huge shift in how I see this journey.

    You're goals sound reasonable and well thought out. Great Job! Looking forward to seeing you reach them!

  3. Thank you for your encouragement! I look forward to following your blog. I really appreciate the support.

  4. I know that TOM always gets you down, it always has me. Next week will be a better week.
