Time for a jump start! is everyone doing on this lovely Monday? I havent posted in a few weeks so it is time for a new post.

Things have been the same for the most is still keeping me busy, along with friends, family and my wonderful boyfriend. I am a sales auditor so you would figure as sales start to slow down towards the end of the year so would I. That is not the case...I stay just as busy. This is a good thing though. Definitely makes the days go by faster.

It's football season again so you know I have been enjoying those Auburn games. We have had season tickets since before I came to be so football seasons are a fun time around my house. This brings me to my next point. While football season is full of fun and excitement, it is also full of delicious and at the same time terrible-for-you food! Ugh!

Let me back up for a minute. Last week Monday through Friday afternoon I did so well with my eating. Stayed around 1,000 calories a day. Got in a few good 3-mile walks with my dad. From Monday to Friday afternoon I was down about 3 pounds. I actually got down to 177.2 as of Friday morning. This was my lowest weight so far. I was ecstatic.

Well here comes the weekend. After Chinese for dinner Friday night, Irish pub with the parentals before the game Saturday, Pizza Hut (although I only had 2 pieces) for dinner Saturday night and Ruby Tuesdays for dinner last night...that 177.2 came and went pretty quickly.

This morning....

I weighed....

180.8 pounds.

Ugh. Why do we do this? We know portion control. We know what to eat and not eat. We know how to lose weight. But sometimes the rules fly out the window...right?

So anyways, time for a jump start. My goal is to be in the 160's by October 23rd (yes this means 169.8 pounds does count!!) 28 days to lose 11 pounds doesnt seem so realistic but I am going with it as best as I know how.

Ironically my church is doing a weekly ealth and fitness class each Tuesday for the whole month of October starting next Tuesday. It is free to anyone that comes and they will teach techniques to lose weight, the best exercises for certain parts of the body, what foods to combine with each other and what foods to not combine with each other. I am super duper excited about this and my dad is going to go with me!! It is exactly the motivation I need to lose these 11 pounds!!

Today of course I was good (who wouldn't be after seeing you gained 3 pounds in 3 days!) I ate around 900 calories but tried to get as much protein as I could.

Here's to the next 27 days of losing weight! Can't wait for this seminar at my church. It came at the perfect time :)

Hey friends!

I have missed all of you lately. I had been trying to keep up with your blogs every few days but haven't been on here as much as I would like to be. I have enjoyed reading everyone's posts about Chicago but it makes me a little sad because I can't go this year. I will miss all my friends from last year and I hate I won't be able to meet new friends this year. But I know all of you will have an amazing time! Please bring back tons of pictures...I know you will!

As far as my weight, it has been up and down the past few weeks but as of today I am back down to my lowest. On August 26th I hit 178.6 pounds which is my lowest ever. I had been in the 180's since May and I was ready for a change. The past 2 weeks I have gone up and down...from 178 to 183 and I am pretty sure this has something to do with football parties, going out of town and tailgating. But this morning I was back at 178.6 pounds...on the dot. I am good with this. I know how to work my way back down after a weekend of being "bad". The trick is going to be learning how to not be "bad" on football weekends...full of tailgating and delicious food. Especially since football season just started! Ahh!!

Here are a few pictures from this past weekend :) Have a fabulous Friday!
