    Long story short I have not been eating right or exercising at all. I bailed out on my trainer last week and threw all my healthy eating habits out the window. I am expected a gain tomorrow, but I am ready for it.

    I know I can do this!

    I am proud of myself cause my coworkers were going to go to Tommy's Burgers (greasy chili burgers) for lunch and I said no. I am going to Wahoo's instead and now they are all coming. LOL. Yay, for eating and staying healthy.
    Yari,

    First of all good luck on trying to get your boss' position. That would be awesome! Secondly, I realized a couple of weeks in this contest that its a life change. And like all good changes worth making its going to be a lifelong battle. We are not going to change in 8 weeks. It will be a continuous fight to be healthy and eat right. We will have days (even weeks or months) where we console ourselves with food for whatever reason. Its normal and its okay.

    I don't know what Wahoo's is but I'm proud of you for never giving up. You are the reason this whole thing got started in the first place and if it wasn't for you so many of us would still be sitting on our lazy asses complaining that we can't fit into a bikini. B/c of you I have dropped 2 sizes! I can't thank you enough for the motivation and inspiration you have given me.

        Mmm that sounds yummy! I wish there was a place like that here. All we had was some gross fried fish place. Yuck!

          Well thanks to Maura I've decided I'm going to bring a chicken and just grill it instead. I might bring some shrimp too, that would be yummy.

          Unfortunately Jill I know there won't be any salad. These are not salad type people. They eat unhealthy food all the time. LOL.
          Yeah, I know salad bars can skeeve some people out, they don't bother me that much, but that was really the only one I ever ate at and I don't anymore since it makes me sick.

          No salad huh, gotta loves those parties, you just know there will be all kinds of food you want to eat! Is this a party you need to make something for? Could you make a salad and bring it? I think the chicken and shrimp are great ideas too, the protein will fill you up. But if you're going to be drinking definetly bring a lo cal snack because I know when I drink I lose self control! What about packing a pack of microwave popcorn? Just in case you really need something later after drinking.

          Good Luck! I have a b-day party this weekend too and it will probably involve some drinking, so I've got to be good!

          Good Luck Yari going for your bosses job! I know when you get really busy its so hard to exercise and eat well. Just do your best and try to make good decisions. I've been so busy lately its been such a struggle to work out, but I've done it. I don't think I would have though if DH wasn't doing it with me, he's keeping me motivated to stick with it.

          Try to get yourself back on track this week, you can do it, this is our final week coming up!


          So, I've been doing so good with eating and exercising. I usually bring my lunch to work, but today I was running late and didn't have anything I really wanted so I ran down to the store at lunch and was planning to buy a little dish of chicken salad and was just going to have that and my apple for lunch.

          Well, I get down there and I see little containers of pastrys from my favorite bakery! Apparently the little store now sells the bakeries stuff! Ahhhh!! I ended up buying a container and ate 6 pieces!!! I felt so awful, but I just couldn't contain myself!! So then I went to eat my chicken salad when I got back and it wasn't even very good, I ate a few bites and threw it out. So, I caved and ate really bad stuff, but that was pretty much my whole lunch too, so at least I didn't eat a big lunch and all the extra calories. At least thats how I'm justifying it to myself. And I had a very light dinner and worked out, so I'm hoping I didn't ruin my entire week!!

                Great job on the 2 pounds lost!

                I dropped one pound this week so that put me over the 10 pound mark! Yay! The first mini goal has been completed! Next is my 10% goal (all you WW girls know what I'm talking about).

                Let's kick it into high gear for our final week! (Can you believe it?!)

                      Girls we are officially in the last week of the season! Its actually nice out today here in NY. Which means summer time is coming. That of course means I can't hide out in sweatshirts anymore. So nice weather should motivate everyone to want to stick with it. I did okay this week I lost 2.6 pounds. I was really stagnant for the beginning of the week and then my FI's cousin gave me a tip and told me to change my routine (I was doing cardio then weights, he told me to do weights then cardio) just to trick your body. I think it worked b/c as of two days ago I was still the same weight.

                      ~Erica congrats on the loss that is awesome!
