Day 4 - Giddy, Glee, and Goals

Tonight was the fall finale of one of my absolute favorite tv shows - Glee! And I must say, I am very impressed :) it was really really good.

For food today, I think I did pretty okay. I had an apple for breakfast. Lunch was light, I had a half 6-inch(I guess it'd be easier to say 3 inch lol) sweet onion chicken terryaki sub from subway and for dinner I had tortilla soup (perfect for the return of the cold weather!) I feel awkward talking about my food intake. But I guess that's a necessary step on the journey lol.

I can honestly tell you that today was not a good day. I got really sick at school, and didn't feel well at all. But as someone who looks at the glass half full, I don't want to dwell on the negatives. So I'm gonna go ahead and remain giddy about the start of my weight transformation. When I was feeling crappy in 7th period, I made a weight calendar that would show my weight at different dates if I lost 2 pounds consistently every week (BTW: This is TOTALLY doable, if I keep up my exercise and make good food decisions). It was GREAT. And really inspiring. I encourage you all to do the same, or something similiar. When you set goals, and especially write them down, you're more likely to not only obtain them, but at the very least attempt them. How cool is that? I mean think about it - You set a goal to lose 8 pounds in the month of January. When February rolls around, you realize that you lost 6 pounds. That's still great! Because if you never set the goal, and didn't strive to achieve it, you might still be looking at the same number you started with. Just something to ponder :)

Hope that you all are giddy and filled with glee for the rest of the week!

  1. Oh how I love Glee. I wish it were coming back sooner than April!!!! It feels like so long to wait! At least Biggest Loser 9 starts first thing in January to keep us distracted. =)
