Start Your Diet Today!

Archive for November, 2010

I’m here Didi D:

…and full of shame. Okay, I take that back, it’s not totally my fault. I’ve gotten into the habit of peaking at the scale throughout the week (due to this week’s disaster, I am now forbidding myself from ever doing this again). ESPECIALLY considering this week was my TOM, the absolute WORST time for peaking! I know that it is said that our weight fluctuates around TOM, and even though I know the minor gain is probably TOM, I can’t help fearing that it’s not going to go away before Sunday, and then I’m going to have to mark down a gain and then I will be totally devestated! I weighed myself Thursday morning and I was 205 =( up .4 of a lb, but it makes me really sad! I was so close to ONEderland and I have been working super duper hard this week! Will the TOM weight go away? Or is it there to stay? What should I do?! What should I think?!!! I DON’T WANT TO BE 205!!!!!!!!!!!!! After all the work I put in this week, a gain is totally unacceptable. My TOM officially ended today, but maybe I am permanently screwed.

Really, I am quite upset.

Got sick today =( I asked Wednesday not to suck, but it didn’t listen. I got my test done, don’t know how I did on that. And got my last paper back from Eng+1700, and I got an A, which I needed, so that’s a positive. But I had to miss Play Writing, and I know my prof is going to kill me! Ugh.

Well I’m going to be spending some time via skype with my pally tonight and catching up on Psych and Ghost Hunters whilst recovering. Speaking of recovering, I got to make my Tai Chi playlist! There’d be more actual Tai Chi songs if stupid 8tracks would let me upload more than two songs by the same artist. Anyhoodles, song of wellness for ya’s:

Where did everyone go?!

It’s so quiet =( everyone has disappeared! I wish you would all come back!

Tuesday was a pretty good day. Got my homework done earlyish, and got to the YMCA. Unfortunately my Tai Chi class was canceled, or rather, we all went but neither of our teachers showed up. Sucks =/ but I got some extra gym in because of it. As for tomorrow, can’t say I’m looking forward to it. I have a test in my first class and I don’t think I’m ready for it. I’m so nervous that it’s going to ask me the one question I don’t have an answer for. I’ll at least be happy when that is over with, then the next classes are breezes. I’m going to try to get signed up for the testing out exam for Computer Science, but there is only ONE more spot open, so who knows if I’ll get it in time. I’m so nervous about tomorrow, can’t wait for it all to be over!


1. When I put my mind to it, I can be very creative
2. I’m straight edge, and I like me that way
3. I can dance!

Week two Jel diPep Results

Week 2 Weigh-In Results

Good job this week everyone! Thanks for sticking with it =) I’m having fun so far, and I have to say, I’m amazed I can even do 100 crunches! Anyhoodles, let’s make next week even better! We’re dead in the middle of November, let’s make it happen!

This weeks challenges:

1. Write 3 affirmations about yourself each day
2. Do 100 jumping jacks a day
3. Hula Hoop for 30 minutes a day (if you don’t have a hula hoop, just do the motions)


On the other hand, I had a really good night! I felt in such a dancey mood after reading Didi’s post, and I did some at home Zumba dancing for a whole half hour! But I couldn’t stop! I even did my Bellydancing DVD’s! Wow. I was rockin out in the shower! I’ve never had such an active Sunday XD Odd thing though… I haven’t felt hungry at all today, and as good as that sounds I’m kind of worried. Nothing even sounds good. I’m still on the fence about what to make for dinner. I’d say I’d just have a salad but I really need the calories, I’m running on a Fiber One bar and a banana… On a positive note, I did a bit of Tai Chi after exercise to calm myself down. I did the three forms I knew and god it was amazing! I think I’m really getting better at the meditation portion, and once I slip into my little world I am gonnnne. I’ll be making a Tai Chi 8tracks playlist for you all soon!

Jel’s Monday affirmations:

1. I’m determined for sure, and when I want to do something, nothing will stop me from getting there
2. Emotionally I’m very strong
3. I love my ability to name random historical facts that no one would ever bother knowing!

In the meantime, I’m off to finish my homework and watch Fruits Basket! Good luck everyone!!

A quick preview: Angela wants us to write 3 things each day that we like about ourselves, or that we’re proud of, plus 150 jumping jacks if you’re feeling zany ^_~ And Jelbelle challenges you all to do 30 minutes of hula hoop a day! You don’t need a hula hoop, just pretend! 30 minutes of hula hoop can burn 200 calories! whoa! Hula hooping with a weighted hoop can burn up to 400! Doesn’t that just make you wanna run out and buy one right now?
