So, I was doing well until I got to work (I'm a nanny). I never buy myself pretzels, chips, diet soda, so when I'm working, it's so hard to say "No!" Then, I got home, and felt like I needed something green (and then the bf came home, and he was hungry) so we snacked on broccoli & goddess dressing. I need to find a lower calorie veggie dip.

On top of that, I just got back from spending the weekend at my parents house, and they love sending me home with bags of vegan "junk food", i.e. Riblets, soy ice cream, etc. Well, I've just about finished it all, haha, so now that they're out of my kitchen, I should be able to make better food decisions. Out of sight, out of mind!

I burned about 637 calories at the gym today.

Current weight: 108.5lbs
Lbs. to Goal: 13.5

Ugh. Well, after I posted last night and said to myself, "No. More. Food!", the boyfriend came home with this:

230 calories/8g fat/5g fiber/1g protein...PER SERVING


I didn't stand a chance.


  1. Wow 637 calories, you'll be in those J Crew jeans long before I will! Good luck with the challenge and nice to meet you too.

  2. I have a meajor weakness for after-dinner treats like that, too! I've tried that soy ice cream and it is amazing. At lest you measured out a serving to enjoy :) It's so easy to eat the whole thing otherwise!
