I cannot believe that I am finally done with my challenge today. I am really proud of myself for accomplishing all that I did. I know that I cheated during spring break, but since then I have not and that makes me feel good about myself! Tomorrow I hope that I do not go over board. I know two things that I will be for sure getting, and those are a Reese's Peanut Butter Egg and a chocolate chip cookie from Quiznos that has been through the oven. Yum, that is already making my moth water. Today I have done quite well on my diet. For breakfast I had a blueberry bagel, and for lunch I ate at Quiznos. From there I ordered a chicken bacon and ranch sammie with a small caesar salad. I plan to take this experience that I have had into account for the rest of my life. I do not want to go back to my old self and eat junk all the time. There are better things out there for my body, and will help me from getting heart disease or some other type of disease when I get older. How do you feel when you accomplish something that you have been working extremely hard for? Do you celebrate at all?

I can't believe it's almost here!! I feel like this challenge has taken forever! To be honest I can not wait till it is over. This weekend was by good on my part. I was good on not eating junk food, but eating for my meals in general was not good. For some reason my family decided to go out to eat several times this weekend. Some meals I did good by eating a salad and the other times I was not so good. So this weekend I'm going to be eating whatever and going to feel so guilty for it.

I know this may be bad on my part, but I am going to be super excited when this is all over with. There are 5 more days left for my challenge. Can you believe that? I feel as if my experience so far has been up and down, but for the most part I think that it has been pretty successful. There was only one week that I really struggled with my challenge, and if you have read my post before you all know that it was during spring break. Today I am going to be heading home after class around eleven and my parents are wanting to take me out to eat. I know that eating out is not the best thing for you, but that means I am just going to have to search through the menu, of where ever we go, and find something that is somewhat on the healthy side. So that thought leads me to my next question. When you go out to eat do you look for something that is good for your diet, or do you just give yourself a break and eat whatever you want to?

This week I started up postseason workouts and weights for basketball. With all this activity that I am doing it is making me want to eat all the time. As an athlete you are suppose to eat several times a day, but for me I barely have time to with my schedule. It is hard for me to eat properly when you are trying to get something into your system before I have to workout or go to class. After my workouts are done for the day I am starving. I crave a lot of fattening food that I am not suppose to be eating for my challenge. I am wanting to go back to my dorm and just eat some chips or have something among that nature. I am doing great though with not letting myself do that though. I am just trying to get my mind off of eating and on something else that will distract me like doing my homework. I have to be clearly honest I can not wait till my 30 days are up, so I will be able to just have something that I am craving without feeling guilty. If you guys ever get craving and cheat on something, do you feel guilty?

For me this week seems really dull, because I just feel as if my diet has no interesting or tasteful foods to it anymore. I need something that will liven up my taste buds and satisfy my hunger! Do any of you have any ideas on something that I could try out? Because I am kind of having a hard time with diet I have been searching around the internet to see if I could find anything about keeping motivated on my junk food free diet. I came across this Health Weight Forum, and found a quote on there and it said, "Failure is only a fact when you give up. Everyone gets knocked down, the question is: Will you get back up?" For me this hit the spot, because during the first week and over spring break I informed you that I gave in and cheated. After that though I just did not stop and drop my whole goal. I stayed with it and ever since then I have been doing great! Dieting is super hard, and anyone who ever has tried it knows what I am talking about. But the solution to being successful is just sticking with it the best you can, even if you have some oopsies. You just have to get back up! Have any of you had this same problem with a diet?

Last night my mom had over a few of my family members to watch the Indiana vs. VCU game. At have time of the game, my mother decides to make popcorn for everyone, knowing what I am doing and that I can't have any of it. Being faithful to my challenge, I walk straight into the kitchen and take out the veggie tray! While my family was enjoying a tasty batch of popcorn I was eating carrots, broccoli, and celery with ranch. Even though it was not what I wanted to consume at that point in time, I stayed focus on my goal of completing my challenge. When you are tempted with something, how do you go about handling it?

Today we had my grandmas 60th surprise birthday party, and as many of you can think there was plenty of sweet and junk food there! I was so proud of myself for controlling my hunger for those type of foods! And to be quite honest I really didn't even want a piece of cake! I was so shocked on that one! I think that my body is adapting and not craving as many sweets at it use too, which I am really excited about!! I hope that when this is all over that my body crave less than what it already does.
