Well, for about 6 months now I have fallen off the clean eating wagon. I have struggled since Cohen's birth to get my eating under control. I am not sure what I weigh but I know it is not good. I especially have struggled since August this year. Moving to a new city with little to no money and no desire to cook I have divulged in fast food galore. I don't want to eat this way. I don't want to struggle. Exercise has been pretty nonexistent too. I am so ready to kick this overeating habit and lose the weight for good. Starting tomorrow I want a complete overhaul and I want to start over!

Oh my gosh! I CANNOT shake this headache. I have been in pain since Wednesday of last week and it doesn't seem to go away. It has transferred sides so hopefully that is a sign it is making it's way out. It has been extremely debilitating and to be honest it has really shut down my workout mojo. When the alarm went off this a.m I could hardly open my eyes it hurt so bad. I hit snooze and gave myself a few more hours to rest. I am actually really glad I went ahead and slept because that helped me get through work. Once I got home I decided that I needed to workout, that I could not let a headache that I have had for 5 days stop me from doing what I need to do. I did a rainy day workout from Bethany's blog, since I did not have time for Fit Camp, and after the first 5 mins I was no longer thinking about my headache. I even got some really nice back cracks that seemed to relieve the pressure in my head. I am a chronic sufferer of migraines and tension headaches, but I was hoping that eating clean would cure those. I cannot give up hope though that eating clean will cure those since they have already decreased substantially since starting the program. One thing I did catch today was that I was getting pretty liberal with my portion control. I have not been as strict on measuring things or adding in the additional veggies per meal. That will change tomorrow. I cannot let my progress be hindered by laziness or ignorance. I will keep straining ahead toward the prize. Week 2, day 1, one step closer to my happiness!

|1lb of Fat!|
Here it is! The end of Week 1. I lost 1lb and I am OK with that. I worked hard this week and I am proud. I tried a new strategy with planning, which worked great, and I changed my workout routine. 5:30am workouts will now be my thing along with yoga once a week. I overall have enjoyed this week. My head has been hurting the last few days, but yesterday marked the visit of my monthly friend, so I am certain that is the problem. Tim started Jujitsu again and he is loving it. His Saturday morning workouts will work out well for me because I will be able to take that time for myself. Once I get finished blogging I will finish cleaning and then I will start my workout for the day. After today I will have worked out 5 times this week. I am proud of that. I also want to spend some time today planning for next weeks meals! Overall it has been a good week!

Duke got in the good will pile...
Have you seen these babies?! I came home from work yesterday to find that they have escaped from the fence. :( By the time I got home Animal control was called so there was no way I could go pick them up. It has made me pretty sad. I am proud of myself that I did not give into emotional eating though. I did not even think about it.Yesterday was one whirl wind of a day and I am just ready to put this week behind me. Prayers are definitely needed. I have been good with me eating and exercising though so I can say it is not a complete bust. I had an acquaintance of mine yesterday going on and on about how stressed she was and all she wanted was a snickers. That caused my ears to go up because it made me see that in the world we live in now people, myself included, have fallen into the trap that food can substitute for ANYTHING. Ugh, what a disgusting thought! Today should be interesting... I will update you on the status of my sweet Duke and Roxy when I get off work. Ready to start this day...

Once again it is safe to say I got up for 5:30am Fit Camp!! I got up yesterday but it was cancelled due to bad weather so I went ahead and rested. I have been itching to make a fritatta and as you can see above I did! It is full of veggies and protein and I am excited. After Fit Camp this morning I was extremely glad I made this. Having something like this ready made my life that much easier. I started my keurig, and while it was brewing, I popped this bad boy and a sweet potato (in a steam fresh bag) in the microwave, cut up half and avocado and by the time my coffee was done so was my breakfast. It took all about 4 minutes. That made my morning that much more enjoyable because I was able to SIT and enjoy my cup of coffee with a delicious breakfast. I am so used to running around frazzled in the mornings and it was so peaceful. I am a little nervous today about my eating. We have been stuck in meetings since yesterday, lunch included, and it is really hard to make good decisions when SOMEONE ELSE is ordering for you. Yesterday they did good, they ordered Roly Poly and I was able to enjoy a salad from there. Today, it is a completely different ball game, I have NO clue what is being ordered and I have NO clue if I can eat any of it. Mind you, I could have brought my lunch, but I was advised by my boss that was not a good idea as I would not have the opportunity to get it ready. One more day of meetings tomorrow...I may just bring my lunch just in case. Tim is really excited this week because he gets to return to his
