1000 calories!!!

That's how much I burned at the gym today! I'm so happy, especially compared to what I ate today. For breakfast I had half a pancake with some syrup, a cup of cranberry juice, a small serving of scrambled eggs with some ham, and a small apple nut muffin. That was at 8:30 this morning and at 10 I had 4 tater tots. So between then and dinner I went to the gym and had an amazing workout. It was two hours very well spent, despite the fact that when I weighed myself I found that I had gained a pound. That disappointed me. For dinner though I had some sushi from this really great sushi shop. Not just your run of the mill california rolls, so I'm sure I added some calories, but I did stop myself from buying any snacks when I took a trip with some friends to Target today. Aisles and aisles of valentine's day candy not to mention the regular assortment of snacks, chips, and sweets.

And I have more good news. My friend has gotten a case of the cold and hasn't had the stomach for much food today, but I recommended some chai tea with Equal and a dollop of milk. It's all she's had so far today and I think  got her hooked on the stuff. I feel bad that she's feeling under the weather, but she's also not the most confident about her body and at least the tea will slightly boost her metabolism.

So I'm currently getting ready to go out with Aaron. He's starving and found a coupon for a buy one get one free pizza at this place he really likes, although he assumed I'd be paying half because I'd be eating some. I swear to God he never listens when I tell him I'm on a diet or when I go to the gym. Oh well, I'll just have to keep up my resistance to junk food tonight. Wish me luck!

My week so far:

It's been a little hectic around here lately. Midterms are coming up and study time + homework has prevented me from going to the gym the past two days. I've been trying to cut down on my food intake and I think I'm doing alright. Yesterday's breakfast was probably the worst. I had half a Belgium waffles with butter, syrup and whipped cream. It was so delicious though. I haven't had a waffle in ages. I skipped lunch and instead had two bananas as snacks throughout the day, and for dinner I had some broccoli beef with white rice and a beef tamale. Today has been going much better so far. I didn't have time for breakfast so I rushed out the door with half a banana. I absolutely hate eating alone so when I went to sit down with some friends with my lentil soup and they all had to leave for class I left too with only 5 spoonfuls eaten from my bowl. Right now I'm currently enjoying a cup of green tea and anxiously awaiting my care package my mom is sending me, complete with an entire box of tea, toothpaste, cookies, brownies, laundry detergent, I think some candy, and whatever else she thinks I'll like. I'm so excited for it to come! My parents haven't sent me anything since I started college, so I'm really looking forward to this.

Other than that I thought it was time for some thinspo:

It's very nature inspired today.

Well if there's anything more to post I'll be back later. Just thought I'd let you all in on how I'm doing.

Average Day

So today nothing out of the ordinary happened. I went to the gym around noon and burned another 750 calories. I walked a lap around the university track, did some ab workouts (I still need to do more; I didn't do my usual set), and did 65 minutes on the elliptical. Food today wasn't too bad. I had a banana and a banana nut muffin with some butter and a cup of orange juice for breakfast. For lunch I had a small cesar salad, a granola nut cookie, a small piece of carrot cake, and a piece of multi grain toast with butter. After class I had a snack of tortilla chips and guacamole and tried to eat a sugar cookie, but it was pretty gross so I only ate half. Other than that I just had a cup of green tea and tons of water and I plan on not eating anything else. I've been steadily losing a little weight each time I go to the gym, so hopefully I'll reach my next goal soon. Tomorrow I think I'll put in a good 2 hours at the gym, but until then it's homework, homework, homework.


Happy Monday

Grr not really. I wish I could have one more day to add on to my weekend. I was planning on going to the gym today, but I had some prior commitments that kept me from going, most notably homework and breaking ground on a film shoot that my RA is directing. I just didn't have time, but I'm going tomorrow after morning classes are over. But because I didn't work out I tried to keep my food intake to a minimum. For breakfast I had half a grapefruit with sugar, a banana, and a roll with some butter. For lunch I was rushed so I had maybe 1 1/2 cups of pasta (the big shell kind, not spaghetti) with marinara, and for dinner we went out to eat after the shoot and I got a simple hamburger with no cheese or onions. I think it was an ok day, but tomorrow should be better. It's pretty late though and my roommates are about to go to sleep. I just felt like I needed to blog tonight.

Goodnight Everyone,

It's finally the weekend!

So last night I stayed over at Aaron's dorm and watched the new episode of The Office. Oh how I long for Michael and Holly to be back together again. Oh well...

So we woke up this morning and grabbed some breakfast. I feel terrible about what I ate. I had a banana, 1 piece of hash brown (about the size of a deck of cards), 1/2 of a grapefruit, about two fork fulls of scrambled egg, and a frosted doughnut! That's what I'm most upset about. I'm sure that thing had in itself 200 calories if not more! But after class I headed down to the gym with Liz and burned a good 700 calories on the elliptical plus 60 sit ups with a 5 lb. weight on a workout ball and 20 lower ab workouts. All in all I hope my core is sore tomorrow.

For lunch all I had was a 1/4 plate full of mexican salad. So just carne asada (not that much), rice, beans, cabbage, guac, and sour cream (also not that much). All of this should be under 800 calories, I think. Hopefully I don't get too hungry again and I can just have some salad because I stepped on the scale today and saw that I haven;t lost a single pound. Ugh, this sucks.

So in lieu of going to the gym today because I just have so much work to do, I'm going to do some ab workouts later today. My diet so far today has consisted of half a grapefruit with sugar (my mom got worried when I told her I was using Equal so I switched), 2 slices of cantaloupe, and 1 medium-sized banana. For lunch all I had was a cup of grapes and also one banana. I think if I can abstain from eating not much else I'll be good, and tomorrow I'm planning on going to the gym around 2 or 3 and busting out at least 45 minutes on the elliptical, which should be around 500 calories for me. One thing I do want to talk about is tights, and one style in particular.

I'm of course talking about these:

They're everywhere! I swear to god every single skinny
girl got together and decided to get a pair of these.
I've yet to see one on a girl that was over a size 3.



And all of these pictures are from my own thinspo alone! There must be dozens more around the net. So I've set this pair of tights as my prize for when I finally reach my UGW. I think I would be doing these stockings a disservice if I were to wear them as I am right now.

Well, if anything else exciting happens to me today, you'll be the first to know. If not, then I'll be back tomorrow.

So Far Today is Meh

I'm having mixed feelings about the day so far. I got up at 8 am to go to the gym with some friends and worked out from 9-10. It was a pretty good workout too. I did the elliptical, some ab workouts and squats, and then got on a cycle. The problem is I mixed up the times of my classes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so instead of getting back on time, taking a shower, and getting to class by 11, I actually missed my 10 am class. Fuck.

But on a good note I did burn at least 350 calories at the gym. For breakfast beforehand I only had two small banana nut muffins because the dining hall saw fit to be out of actual bananas.

Aaaand on another bad note I don't seem to be losing much weight. At all. It's getting really frustrating, especially since I've been eating much less now that I'm back on campus than I was before break. I think it's because I intend to go on different eating regimens, a special event comes up, I screw up by eating too much, then instead of getting back on with the diet I had I just pick another. Blaghhhhh, I need to stop that. I will be going to the gym more often though since me, my friends Jenna and Liz, and my boyfriend Aaron signed up for a fitness program at the university. Pretty much all you do is keep track of the minutes you work out between now and March 20, and if all the team members do more than 1500 minutes you get free t-shirts and get entered into a raffle for some pretty good prizes like workout gear, bookstore gift cards, stuff like that. I'm pumped to see how many hours I can log.

But enough ranting, it's thinspo time. Lord knows I need it...

Until next time,

Edit: I almost forgot! I have two new followers. Thanks guys, that actually made my day a little brighter. =)

I Need a Fresh Start

So #1. I'm sorry I haven't posted in a week. I've been so busy with the start of school I haven't had much time to be on my laptop at all. And #2 I feel like shit. The past week has been the same every single day: I eat a piece of fruit (a banana or 1/2 a grapefruit) and a cup of tea, then something light for lunch (soup or salad), then spaz and eat pizza or a burger for dinner. And to top ot off, today my boyfriend said I had a chubby face! I mean, he said he wouldn't like it if I had a slim face, but it stung just the same, so I'm extra determined to get back on track. I've started a 3-day-a-week workout regimine with my friend at the university gym, and I'm going to try starting a raw fruit/vegetable diet. So mostly fresh fruit and salads. I've been good on drinking a lot of water and tea thus far, and I may start doing that MK point system. Meh, I'll see how it goes, but first I have to start off with 8 hours of sleep. I did want to post some thinspo, but I'm super tired, so I'll post some later in the day. Oh and I noticed I have a new follower. Thank you! =)

Good night all,

Hello All =)

So I noticed today that I have 3 new followers! Thank you guys for taking the time to follow and read my blog. It really does make my day when I see that people are interested in what I have to say, and really you guys are the only ones I can talk to about what I'm going through. Sure I can make a comment or two in passing to my friends, but I certainly can't tell them to check out my blog. So the 3-Day Diet hasn't been working out that well. I've been doing ok with breakfast and lunch. It's dinner that has been neing a bitch to me. I just can't stop myself from eating a full plate of pasta and then a brownie. Ugh it's so frustrating! The good news is that I'm sick with a sore throat. Well, maybe it's not so great but it does mean that solid food makes me want to puke, so I'm sticking to a strictly water, tea, and soup diet. All I've had so far today is 2 cups of green tea, 2 cups of water, and about 120 calories' worth of vegan chili. It feels ok, but I'm learning to dislike the feeling of being full. The problem is I don't like the feeling of being hungry yet either. I'm going to have to find a good balance between filling myself up with liquid and just enough food to tie me over through the day.

But to end on a good note I'm posting more thinspo. =)

Love these legs!:

Day 1 of the 3-Day Diet

I feel like I've eaten so much! I had to improvise on a few things because the dining hall wasn't fully stocked with the food they normally have. So here's what the first day is supposed to look like:

Breakfast:Black Coffee or Tea w/1-2 packets of Sweet & Low or Equal
1/2 Grapefruit or Juice
1 piece of Toast with 1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter

1/2 Cup of Tuna
1 Toast
Black Coffee or Tea w/1-2 packets of Sweet & Low or Equal (optional)

3 Oz. any lean meat or chicken
1 cup green beans or other green vegetable
1 cup carrots
1 apple
1 cup regular vanilla ice cream (optional)


I had...
2 cups of water
1/2 cup of green tea with 1 packet of Equal
1 piece of sweet french bread toast with peanut butter
1 green apple

1 sheet of dried, salted seaweed

1 cup of water
1/2 stalk of celery
2 pieces of steamed broccoli with salt and pepper
2 oz beef roast
1 piece of sourdough bread toast with margerine
1 macademia nut cookie
2 redvines

I kind of mixed lunch and dinner together, and I did a little walking downtown so I might
be fine. I just feel so full.

But anyway, I said I'd put up some thinspo today, and here it is:

 I found another picture of that girl Harlow and I like:
I'm not sure if I like it as much as the other one, but her body still looks perfect.

 I wish my legs looked this good in metallic leggings:

So that's it for today I think. I don't think I'll be eating anything else today,
but if I do I'll update the post.

Have a great night,

P.S. - I'm messing around with the look of the blog. I think it looks ok this way, but I
may tweak a few more things.
