Day 5 report-

Hello everyone!!!

Today was rough, especially when it came to working out.  It's like my mind and body were just trying to say "Nope. F*** it. Don't wanna, no way, no how."  And it almost won.  Almost all day, I just didn't do much until I finally forced myself to work out.  I did 20 minutes of cardio, but less of the MS than normal- just 10 reps.  I know it's low but better than nothing. 

I noticed another thing- I don't think I've been as mindful of my eating as I thought.  I have been looking at my calorie intake and it just looks like too much. 1700ish a day just seems a bit excessive (even though for my weight, the calculator says this is a good range but then again it's also just a guideline)  so I will be lowering it to 1500 max.  I think that's why I'm not seeing too much of a change.  Just thoughts. Also I don't think I have been as diligent as I could have with controlling my portions. I think I am going to try to put my meals on my smaller dessert/bread plates instead of my dinner plates.  I read that it can make a lot of difference subconciously of how much we eat portionwise. (Another Japanese principle I want to apply- they also eat on small dishes)

On another note- this blog is now accessible through a regular domain name:

  1. Good luck, and don't let financial aid get you down - it's very tough. I just finished graduate school, (after a VERY long time), and ran out myself - but there are other ways like work study and all that. Not to be nosy, or asking the obvious, but have you gone to talk to the financial aid office yet? Try them first - usually they're super nice and willing to help. But don't let it get you down too much.
