Day 33 - Back to basics

Yesterday was so stressful. OMG, at one point I just wanted to gouge my damned eyes out so maybe they would just let me go home and hide in my room for a while. But I didn't, and things got better last night. Sometimes I just have to breathe and chill out. I talked to a friend for a while last night, and that got my mind of the disorganization of my life. He suggested that I really need to get my priorities in order - or take time to re-evaluate my priorities and he is right. I have so many balls in the air. And I always end up dropping a few...

I was supposed to have my summer school lesson plans done YESTERDAY - not done. I have a paper due tomorrow - that I haven't started. And do you think I have been journaling my food or eating on schedule? NO. Yes, I am still eating GOOD food, still staying away from sugar and caffeine. BUT I know that I must be vigilant about staying focused on my weight-loss journey so I won't slip.

So today has been back to basics for me. I went back to my food journal from Week 1 of this eating plan, and am taking it from there. So far, I have done very well. I have stayed on schedule and have taken all my supplements and am drinking water like a champ. I am going to MAKE IT MY BUSINESS to keep it up this weekend. There is only FOUR days of school left, so I am going to have to get used to staying on my schedule on days that I don't have a routine going. This summer is still pretty much in the air for me with no definite job plans except for summer school. I have to be able to pull this off no matter what obstacles I might face. I AM WORTH THE EXTRA TIME, EFFORT, AND ENERGY. I AM MY FIRST PRIORITY.

Well, I'm glad I have decided what number one on my priority list is!


  1. Way to go putting yourself first. Hope the last days of school go ok for you.

  2. Hey Hollie, Congrats on the weight loss so far. You are doing amazing! I have just started back on a food journal once again, it helped me no end when I first started. Best of luck!

  3. You are totally worth it!

    Stick with it this weekend, you can do it! And you are almost done, just a few more days.

  4. Good job on going back to the basics. I think if faced with whatever stressful situations we are faced with, we should just go back to the basics and we will get by! YOU ARE WORTH IT!
