On track

So I made it through yesterday food free. Yay me!

I've already made myself a green smoothie to sip on for the day (spinach, banana, hemp protein powder, soy yogurt/milk) it's about 450 calories and watered down to make it last. If I need to, I may throw in a grapefruit when I get home from work tonight. As long as I stay under 500 calories I think I'll be fine. This alternate day fasting thing really seems to be working for me. I hope it is what is keeping my metabolism burning.

I didn't get on the treadmill last night but I did an uppper body workout and a bunch of pushups before I went to bed. My arms are atrocious and of course my wedding dress is strapless. Ugh.

This Friday I am flying home for the bachelorette party weekend with my sister and friends. I don't know exactly what the plans are but there is a limo involved and as my sister says "much booty dancin'..." lol My friends are a trip so I'm sure it will be fun. I bought a new outfit to go out in but I don't know if I will wear it. I really need to lose like 10lbs in the next 3 days to pull it off.

I know that I'll have to eat this weekend because there will be alcohol involved but I'm pretty nervous about it. First, I haven't seen my sister since last Thanksgiving and I've lost a little over 30lbs since then. She's totally going to comment on it. She will definitely notice if I'm restricting this weekend. I may be able to get away with a purge if we drink too much - I can just blame it on the alcohol! My sister is great but she is unbelievably nosey. She will be all in my business. I want to have a good time this weekend but I am not going to gain 15 lbs doing it. I refuse to let the whole weekend be a binge.

Anyway, my goal for today is to stay under 500 cals and get in a good hour on the treadmill tonight before I go to bed...maybe two.

And I want to send much love and appreciation to all of my commenters and new followers. I can't believe how much you guys motivate and inspire me. In the moments when I sometimes feel my resolve weakening, I think of you all and it helps pull me through. Thank you for that. Your support is powerful. :)

Stay hungry my skinny minnies!


  1. have a wonderful time at your bachelorette party! & I'm sure you can avoid gaining for the weekend, just stay focused on your goal! Good Luck!

  2. Good luck hun! I hope your sister doesn't give you too much grief, she loves you and is just looking out for you, but all the same. Have fun!

  3. AWW! Have lots of fun. Lol. Go ahead and blame it on the alcohol, love. <3

  4. Good luck bride-to-be! You're staying so strong, your wedding must be a real inspiration. I hope that you will make your goals, and keep blogging, because you seem like a wonderful and interesting person.

  5. Have a wonderful time! Stay focused, if you talk a lot people won't notice that you aren't really eating so much. Also just say you are too excited or nervous and are stangely not hungry if there is a comment you can't avoid. Careful not to talk about food, good or bad, it does not exist.
