Ugh. So I went out last night for my friend's birthday - Baltimore is about a 40 minute drive for me, and I was going alone, so I just drank unsweetened iced tea/lemonade all night. I had one beer, only because I was getting ridiculously sad about Mother's Day and I had to prevent myself from hurting my ex boyfriend. I would have LOVED to have gotten absolutely smashed, but I drove, and I refuse to drive intoxicated. Plus I'm not a fan of drowning sorrows in alcohol.

I got up early and went to see the butterflies, but I'm home now, on the computer uploading pictures to prevent myself from scarfing down the entire box of chocolate cereal I bought yesterday. I'm just so sad, and usually I'd eat to make myself feel better, but I'm trying to resist...I made a deal with myself that I can have lunch AFTER I finish my putting the pictures on my website, but then I am going to clean - I won't eat while I'm cleaning, so this house may be spotless by 7pm...

I hope all you ladies are having a wonderful Mother's Day!

Check! I actually *did* start the paper as soon as I finished making my rounds on 3FC yesterday, and I officially finished it about an hour ago... WOOHOO!

Well, I haven't started my other homework yet, but it's mostly just reading, and I should have plenty of time to get it done over the course of the rest of the day/tomorrow morning before I go to class.

3a. **NOT BINGE** on the cookies/F1 chewy bars that my mom sent me the other day. The F1 bars are not vegan, so I can't eat them, and I want to make those cookies last! They are too delicious to be wasted on a binge.
Check and check!! I cannot believe that I managed to get through this stressful weekend without binging... Plus I am giving away that box of Fiber One bars to one of my friends who loves them, and I plan on reeeeeally savoring one of the cookies as a special treat tonight to "reward" myself for finishing the paper early and not binging. Yea!

Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately!!) I decided to do the responsible thing and work on my paper instead of going out last night... It really was the wiser thing to do--I probably wouldn't have had much fun if I tried to go out while knowing that I hadn't finished the paper yet, and all that stress + alcohol would practically be inviting a binge! So, I'm glad I didn't go out, though I'm starting to get some serious cabin fever!

This thread is such a great idea... I love 3FC for keeping me accountable!

Yesterday: Fail. Almost epic. Every single thing I ate was 'healthy' and 'nutritious', but I ate too much of it. As for beverages, I stuck with water and tea until the evening, when I downed two Diet Cokes.

Today is going a lot better. As for exercise...yoga and bike. I haven't been able to make it to the lake. I'm about to go to the pool, though, so that's a plus.

Yeah... I didnt do so well this weekend... Went out to eat Friday night, but didnt over-do it... I did really well Saturday and worked my tail off from 9am - 8pm on house work... Sunday was the bad day... ate out at lunch, but I dont think I did too bad... so hard to tell... ordered Chinese for supper AND to top it off had Andy's Custard last night! I have been taking Phentermine and I forgot to take it yesterday... I remembered around 3pm... and I didnt want to take it that late in the day. I was hungrier than usual and my will-power was 0%... I'm really worried about when I dont have those anymore... I have about a month and a half left on them. I will have to work EXTRA hard then.
Anyway, as for yesterday... I just kept telling myself I'll sweat it out in hot yoga this week... I plan to go 3 times this week.
Good news is I didnt gain anything, I was sure I would have. Just stayed the same, which is better than gaining I guess.
Mondays I usually regain my focus! I will stay on track this week!

Glad so many people found this thread useful as a kick in the butt!

Update: did pretty friggin good all weekend. SUPER busy!!! (which is unfortunately why I couldn't keep checking in.) I had way too much vodka/soda's on Saturday... but at least it wasn't beer or any calorie heavy cooler. And food was all good! I even went out on Friday night and worked out at 8pm. that's never happened. lol

So it looks like this would be a good idea for next weekend too! See all of you in a week! (and of course every day until then too.)
