Moving in the right direction.

Well it's Friday. What does that mean? Last working day for my full-time job, pay day every other Friday, and oh yeah, weigh in day. I stepped on the scale this morning a little nervous since I had a hard work out last night, I didn't eat dinner till about 8:30, and was asleep by 10:00.

183.6. Down three pounds!

I have about five weeks till I'll be in sunny Florida, and I'd like to be down 10 pounds from my start weight. If I'm not, it's really not a BFD. I know I have a long road ahead of me, but at least I'm going the right way.

My challenge for myself this week is to make better choices when I'm working at the bar. Most nights I do get a salad and some type of fried goodness, but maybe I'll try to bring my own meals, or even get a salad and grilled chicken. But Jami likey....Jami want wingy.

Week one is done, bring it on week two! ***Punches chest***


  1. Congrats on the 3lbs gone! I worked at a bar/chicken wing/finger lounge place in college for 3 years. It was seriously the hardest thing to avoid all of the amazing food just waiting to be attacked. Even the salads weren't safe from me,.. I would douse them in hot sauce and ranch dressing like I was putting out a fire on the damn thing.

    I would suggest eating the salads there but maybe just bringing some sort of grilled chicken (unless your bar has that option). Good luck with the next week!

  2. They do have grilled chicken on the menu, and I could also put that on the salad.

    The salad is pretty basic, just lettuce, tomato, onion, and cheese. I have them hold the croutons and I have the ranch on the side. I figure I could keep the cheese and ranch since I'm not having a tenderloin and cheese fries.

    Thanks Jess! :)
