A few other things I am hoping to work on-
-hoping my hair won't fall out so freaking much
-TMI, but I would love to be more "regular"
-less bloating and stomach grossness
-not having swollen fingers (I love when my fingers are thin, I will paint my nails all the time)
Woke up this morning and weighed myself. Have gained soooo much weight this last little bit since eating has been on a major major skid. Ugh. I am 5'7.5'' and was 154.9 this morning. My goal weight is between 130-135 but really I just want to be leaner. Number not as important to me.
Going to try and fast today to make up for the crappiness lately. I would love to hear about other peoples' fasting routines, if there is such a thing. Also what is the general concensus here about distance running? I know chronic cardio is generally a bad thing, but if I eat properly while doing so, does that make it better? Any input would be great, thanks!! Have a good Saturday!!
Well no fasting today. Eating a salad with greens, chicken, peppers, onions, sunflower seeds, and berries. So far so good.
Giving up beer is going to be pretty tough for me-I love beer. Maybe start drinking wine when out socially.
And did yoga this morning for the first time since July!!! Was pretty tiring and I doubt I will feel it tomorrow. Going to go for a walk now, it's like 65 degrees
Should say no doubt I will feel the yoga tomorrow.....whoops
Ugh I am actually feeling sad at the thought of cutting out so much from my diet. But I know I will feel better in literally every way, right???? Freaking ridiculous. I need to tattoo "it's worth it" on both wrists or something
Yep definitely need that tattoo or something. This is reaaaallllyyyyy not going to be easy for me ate crappily tonight. Will start with yoga tomorrow again and have a better day of eating.

Ok well I have had a shitty night of eating. Tomorrow needs to be better.
I have 65 days until the end of interviews, and by then boards will be done for me. So for the next 65 days I really need to buckle down, study, and take care of myself the absolute best I can. Otherwise I'll really regret it.
General guidelines for the next 65 days:
1. Eat meat, fish, eggs, veg, fruit, nuts almost exclusively. I can bend the rule in social situations where it would be too awkward.
2. Yoga and stretching daily
3. 20 pushups daily
4. Walk or run 5 days a week
5. Don't waste time online (except for this.....haha)
6. STUDY damn it
Already deactivated facebook, go me!
Hi Crunchyleaves, it seems to me that you are really hard on yourself. You have a lot going on, much stress and you are such a high achiever. I do believe that most of the other areas in your life will become easier to cope with when you get established in a healthy lifestyle, but it is a journey that does not have to happen all at once.

Now, what are you going to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner tomorrow? The options are endless and delicious, you probably want simple (for now) but they should be good enough to look forward to, not be pining for the items that are offlimits.
