Loss: -1.2

I’m not even sure how that happened but I’ll take it. I’ve been letting this stress get to me in the worst ways. I’m finding myself grazing, snacking (definitely snacking on things I shouldn’t be), and consuming enough Starbucks for a small village. I’m not saying that Starbucks is bad, because in moderation it’s probably great. However I found myself drinking 2-3 each day, my “normal” drink is a venti iced latte, decaf, with soy milk, sugar free caramel and sugar free mocha (that’s 12 pumps of flavor). So yesterday was it. No more Starbucks for a while maybe on a trek out of town or something like that but definitely not like I have been. Not only should it help me lose weight but it’s going to make my wallet a bit happier.

I’m really thinking once I have a job, a lot of the stress is going to balance out. I know we all have stress in our lives, but this is weighing so VERY heavy on my heart/soul/mind. It is absolutely affecting my weight loss.

However, I am determined! My boyfriend is doing a 5k this coming Sunday, he’s been training for months and I am so very, very, proud of him. There’s an 8 mile race on Mackinac Island that I’m thinking of training for. I’d have nearly a year to get ready but we’ll see. I’m not sure I ever really *want* to be a running competing in 5ks, 10ks, etc. I’ve never had it as a goal. Something to consider I suppose.

Current goal: Get to 199 pounds.

Keep pushing friends.
