...is beyond my expectations!

Week 2: 134 LBS, Removed 4 LBS from week prior, Removed 0.7% Body Fat.

During the week, I kept track of all the food I ate, workouts I did, and how I felt.
My biggest concern is that I still crave basic things like fried chicken and chocolates during my stressful moments.  I laugh that I find those items "basic." 

When I stress out or get the least bit sad, fried chicken and chocolate become my body's triggers for instant comfort.

However, it won't last for long!  I'm training my mind and building my armor to fight!

I have stuck with the BFL eating program* and this week have been able to say no to the bucket of fried chicken sitting in the fridge.  This image now disgusts me, seeing the grease seep into the paper bucket is like looking for a cigarette in an ashtray...just say no!

Positive things that have helped me this week:

The Blender Bottle

This thing looks cheap but man does it make protein powder taste so good!  It's also extremely easy and fun to use!

Syntha-6 Protein Powder, Cookies and Cream Flavor

I will rave, rave, rave about how good this product is!  I was getting tired of the same old chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry protein shakes.  But this...oh MAN..this tastes like ICE CREAM!  YUM!  It also has slow releasing protein so it fills my stomach up, which means I get fuller faster and stay satisfied longer!

Body-for-LIFE for Women

I have the BFL for Women book and I love the book's take on Hormonal Milestones.  Your age doesn't fully determine what hormonal stage you're in.

I stopped comparing myself to college classmates, my younger thin friends, and other 20 somethings.  I look at my body for what it really is!

This book tackles how to balance weight and mood during each hormonal stage.  The photos and stories gave me motivation to keep going.

*Note: I modified the BFL eating program, instead of a "Free Day" I eat only 1 or 2 "Free Meals" a week and eat 100% clean.  I also modified the BFL workout program and added 20 mins High Intensity Cardio for 6 days a week.
