Fridays Suck

I hate Fridays. I didn't used to, but now that I don't eat, they are awful. First, there is macaroni and cheese for lunch on Fridays, and I'm expected to eat it because I used to love it. Second, there is an ice cream sundae bar at dinner on Fridays, and it always tortures me to see everyone else enjoying their ice cream. On that note, here is what I ate today:

- Breakfast: 3 medium strawberries (12) and 5 grapes (17)
- Lunch: Macaroni and cheese (200)
- Snack (ugg): Pretzels (100)
- Dinner: Pasta (50) and veggies (50)
Total calories: 429

So not awful, but Friday's are always higher in calories than I want them to be. I weighed myself this afternoon and I was 181. I really wanted to be 180, and I know I should be happy that I lost a pound, but I really, really wanted to be 180! I was so good this week! This brings me to my next annoyance: I hate not having my own scale. Despite the fact that it's embarrassing to have to use the scale in the athletic training room, something I won't even be able to do next semester, I can only weigh myself in the afternoon or evening. The training room doesn't open until 12:30 pm, so I usually just weigh before I work out. I can't wait for this summer, when I can weigh whenever I want!

I had to battle some serious cravings today. I didn't work out because I'm exhausted and my back somehow got injured, so I took a three hour nap instead. And when I woke up, all I could think about were pretzels. In fact, that's all I can think about now too :( I'm not even hungry!

Well, I think that's all I have to say. I wish this semester were over...


  1. well done on your intake with so much temptation around!
    you can resist the pretzels - think about something you can phrase into the positive, like "i will have a cup of tea" rather than "i don't want to eat ..." the mind can only process "not" after thinking of the object.
    think thin hun. xoxxxxxxx

  2. You're doing great! You kept it under 500!

    You'll get to your goal in no time:)

  3. Thanks you guys! You are both amazing :)
