Day 1.

Quick Update.
Today was my assessment day and day 1 of my 90 day weight loss journey with my trainer Daniel!

Did i mention that it was really mean.. and gruel.. and just.. UGH!!!
So.. I started off this morning waking up and thinking.. ohh.. yeah.. diet... no problem.. salad.. sounds good... and then as the day goes on..
I start to feel the cravings..
for... EVERYTHING!!!!!

Why does food have to consumeeeeee my lifeeeee?! Seriously.. It's like.. as soon as you see junk you forget about allll the motivation and all your goals.. instead you just want to indulge in a 2 combo Panda Express with 1/2 and 1/2 with beef and broccoli & orange chicken.
shoot me.
I quit smoking... and I somehow managed to survive that.. but really... FOOD?!?! WHYYYYYYYYYY does food have to be so fattening >.<

Ok I'll stop complaining. I'm pooped.. So i'm going to just jot my days recordings and pass out.
I really hope tomorrow is better. I'll update tomorrow with all my horrible measurements/ weight/ pictures... etc..

-1 english muffin
-orange juice

-string cheese

-1/2 Sauteed Chicken breast + mixed salad with balsamic vinegar

So far so good..
Allen decides he wants to try Yoshinoya for the first time in his life >.<
-1/2 a beef bowl *epic fail.

THENNNN he decides he wants to buy a bunch of chinese pastries.
- 3 bites of his really good cream puff pastries *epic EPIC fail

-1/2 Turkey breast sub from subway with all the veggies.. mustard.. pepper and vinegar.

Total Calories consumed: 1600
Total Calories burned at the gym: -300
Overate by 400 calories >.<

Gym= kicked my ass.

Better luck tomorrow? >.<
1 day down.....89 more days to go.

Yeah I know that feeling of the first day starting the journey... I've done it many times haha (that's not good lol)
Trying to eat healthy is hard. When I crave junk food, I look up recipes at because she remakes some of them to be a lot less 'bad'.

Good Luck to us all on the same journey.

I start mine next week since I'm still getting over a cold :/ *boo*

When I have cravings/want to eat junk food, I look at the calories and think about how much time I would need to spend at the gym to burn it off. I'm quite lazy, so I cringe at the gym time and don't eat it. lol

For sweet craving I like just having one of those Wherther's Candies, 20 calories, and it satisfies my urges!

Maybe you can find something substitute those cravings =T I should start my weight lost journey soon... need to settle down with the semester first and get it pumping! I must start by next month if I want to loose it all by my birthday month. Update us girl, even if it's just a little bit!

I'm so in your shoes right now!
I lOVEEEE FOOD. I mean, how can you not, right? But man. It's so hard, especially when all you're friends are like, "Hey, you wanna hangout?" And by hanging out they mean, "let's go out to eat!" =[ booo. && it's jst sooo tough to turn it down. I mean, golly! But you are inspirational. I'm turning 21 in like 5 months! I gotta get ready for the summer. It's not just a temporary change, it's a lifestyle change. I'm tired of this shell I call a body right now.

It's time to take initiative && make it into something FABULOUS!

i'm so proud of you for deciding to go on this 90 day weight loss AND being "real" with us and sharing your journey. when i watch your videos and read our blogs i feel like i'm looking at a reflection of myself sometimes ... i gained about 30lbs within the last 2 years, and used to smoke but once i quit, i, like many others, started to gain weight and needed some type of "oral fixation" ... so what better to turn to than food! haha. anyway, i always just have to remind myself, "it's a new year, a new day, so why not work on a new me?" a good tip to battle your cravings throughout the day - DRINK WATER! a lot of times when we think we're hungry, our bodies are actually just dehydrated because so many don't drink enough water :] i'll be rooting for ya girl!

I'm in the same boat as you..I started on Monday or Tuesday and I'm already failing!!

My goal is to lose 40-50 lbs before this year ends so I'll forever keep the weight off and make a new lifestyle.

I say don't be embarrassed of what you are now..OWN IT!! and at the end of your journey you'll be very proud and can brag about it to other people haha sometimes i watch biggest loser to feel better about myself's really gay of me to do but...if they can do it, you can do it!! :D

Thanks for the inspiration by the way. I got motivated to get up and work out today haha. I hope we can help each other out hehe GOOD LUCK!! you can do it!
