Generally a fairly good weekend..

I say this because I'm starting to learn how to incorporate "real world" foods without binging.  That's been the biggest battle for me.  Everytime I eat something outside of Nutrisystem I binge.  This weekend I ate a sandwich and didn't have to added another sandwich plus chips and a soda.  I was okay with just the sandwich.  Small steps, right?

What I most excited for? Obviously, my family coming to visit... but moreover, the fact that spring is right around the corner!  This meansssss... great weather and more motivation.  I need the sun in my life, flat out, so I'm hoping the change in weather works in my favor... pretty sure it will!  Point being, I will need to lose the biggest portion of my weight between the spring and the end of 2011.  The weather isn't unbearable (usually) during that time frame, so I won't be inclined to hibernate like a bear.

Soooo... I was like... "Ohhh, I gots time to look good before my friend's wedding." Sayyy whattT?! That madness is at the end of May... we're already a week into March.  I ain't got THATTT much time.  I gotsta get to stepping!

I am going to make sure my family MAKES sure I workout while they are here.  I'm gonna have them keep me in CHECK.  I'm telling my bro tonight... he better not be tempting me with IHOP either or I'll kick his teef in!... sheeeeshus.

Sooo goal until Friday:  1) Workout everyday, 2) Stick to NS... no darn cheating!... can someone share some motivational tips & tricks??  I mean c'monnnn...

yay! yup its all about moderation and portion control. you can eat yummy things as long as your stopping with ONE serving. Not after you ate three and feel very guilty! Isn't it refreshing to eat something and not feel guilty after :)
