Start of a New Me

So first thing this morning I woke up, got online, and saw I had a new follower. Thank you for starting my day off with a smile. I hope we have a lovely time on our journeys together. =) Welcome.

It felt so good to get back on the SGD today! I didn't realize how much I'd missed it until today. Like a puzzle, I had to figure out how to fit certain foods into my day to not go over my limit of 700, and I didn't. =)
I thought I would have a semi-hard time getting back into the routine of counting but it was so much easier than I anticipated. What wasn't as easy was saying bye to my family. I came back to campus today with Aaron on a 2 1/2 hour car ride. And so begins school again! I ordered my textbooks online last night along with those caffeine pills. They should all be here by the end of the week. Hoorah!

Today was a good food day. For breakfast I had most of an orange (75 cal). For snacks I had a bite of sausage (35 cal), 10 tortilla chips and 3 tbsp of salsa (140 cal), 2 bagel crisps (45 cal), and 1/2 of a popsicle (20 cal). Dinner was the most surprising. All of the dining halls were closed so I went with some friends to Taco Bell and got two fresco tacos for only 300 calories. Some TB options are actually really low-cal compared to other fast food places which is really nice to know. So all in all my total came out to 615 calories out of 700.

Ok well that was my day. I can't wait to get back into the swing of things, especially my awesome new class schedule, and tell all of you guys about it!

Much Love,
♥ Toni


  1. hi toni! thank you for commenting. I do try to do it the healthy way. there are some days where I do it horribly but I always fall back on focusing on how to take care of my body. You've come a long way yourself. Keep it up!

  2. You did really good today!
    Keep it up!

  3. Glad you had a good SGD day 1! You never really know how much you miss something unless you've been without it for a while. Counting is so ingrained into my memory even when I try not to count I find myself mentally calculating cals. With the counting thing- once you get used to it, it sort of become second nature. Like, you can look at a piece of food and guess how many cals is in it. Going back to school is also a lot of fun too- everything's new and different and it seems like there's more motivation. Then halfway through the semester that motivation starts dropping again, so hold on to it while you've got a chance!
