    I'm usually not, so it's been really challenging, lol!

    I'm so excited that today is my last low carb day for a little over a week! Next week I'm on to all low GI/GL and then CHEAT DAY!!!

    Part of me can't wait for cheat day and the other part of me is scared to have the things I've been missing, because I'm afraid I won't be able to stop!

    Finally made it to the gym last night for a step class, I can't believe how out of shape I felt after only missing the gym for a few weeks! (not that I'm in great shape, but I had at least built up some endurance and some muscle flexibility, last night was pure torture!)

      that's awesome about the gym Jill. It is surprising how you get out of shape in such a short period of time.


      Well, I've lost another 1.5 lbs this week!! Actually, it's been 2 weeks for that weight loss as I didn't lose last week at all. Either way, I'm happy that it's going down, not up! lol I really wasn't expecting a loss because we've been struggling a little with eating out. The loss may have something to do with the fact that I didn't eat dinner the night before my weigh-in or maybe I was just lucky this week! lol I had dental work, which resulted in having 3/4 of my mouth frozen, which didn't really allow me to eat anything other than a smoothie from a straw and a yogurt, which most of it landed on my face without me knowing! lol The FI was calling me Marry Murphy all night (SYTYCD judge) because my frozen face looked like hers with her botox. It was funny anyway!

      So it's our cheat day today, and we sorta started it early with dinner last night. We found out that we were approved financially for our FIRST HOUSE!! WOO HOO!!! So now it's official, we have a home! Needless to say, we went to Red Lobster to celebrate and took FI's mom with us. I didn't eat horribly, but I didn't hold back on their oh-so-good cheddar buns! lol I'm just going to continue with the diet today, well cheat today, and move forward tomorrow. You can't be perfect all the time! lol

      Anyway, I didn't think that I would be writting this novel, but, here it is! lol I hope that you ladies are doing wonderfully!

        you can't be good all the time, just do your best! Hope you had a good cheat day today, make sure you do some shopping tomorrow so that you have good food in the house for you to eat this week.

        I weighed in this morning and I was down another 4.2 lbs, yippee!! I was so excited when I got on the scale this morning! So I'm at a total of 7.4 so far. One more week until cheat day!

          Lisaloo - yay on the weight loss AND on the house, that's super exciting! Happy cheat day!

          Jill - You've made amazing progress in the priming phase, huge congrats to you!!!

          I didn't lose any weight this week but I didn't gain any either so I should be thankful lol. I think what's happening is that I'm gaining a lot of muscle since I started lifting weights again that any weight I might have lost during the week is being replaced by muscle. Not that I'm complaining since the more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns at rest. I just wish I did let the scale mind f*ck me like it always does

            Jill - Yeah that's so exciting! You're doing awesome, keep it up!!! :)

            Kathy - at least you didn't gain, that's all I have to say! It probably is because of the weight-lifting. You'll start to lose again once your body re-adjusts itself.

            Yesterday's cheat day was quite interesting. It was our first time we didn't have to plan it the day before because we didn't go to the cottage. It was actually nice to just get up and start the day without the planning. We ended going out for breakfast and I had a great meal with tons of fruit. Then we did the Starbucks thing, had some ice cream at the mall, had dinner out with my parents which I ate pizza and then ended the night at home watching movies and having doritos and pepsi. All in all, it was great and I didn't eat too badly and I didn't feel sick, which is a bonus for me. lol

                    I'm having some troubles getting motivated to exercise.. I belong to a gym yet I hardly ever go... any tips on getting myself motivated ? I find it so hard when I get home from work.. I am just so tired I can't even make the effort to get dressed in gym clothes, much less drive there and work out. I would LOVE to go in the AM but I can barely get up at 6:45 for work.. to go to the gym I'd have to get up at 5.
                    I can't go at lunch from work because I work in the middle of nowhere (45 min from my gym/home)

                    So please tell me how you ladies do it? I don't want to even go every day -- 3-4x a week and I'd be happy.. there always seems to be something stopping me.....

                    thx
