I don't know why I felt like writing a post after so long, but I am.

I have been having a strange time with things. I don't mean that in a "I'm having a hard time and I'm complaining" sort of way. I have been doing okay on my weight loss journey and have been feeling pretty good about the progress that I've made. I've been making small adjustments here and there, until I get comfortable, and then adding a little bit more. It's been going really smoothly.

What's strange is that even though I know the right choices to make and have been kind of content with where I'm headed, I still have this mental block that keeps trying to make bad choices. For example, right now, I want a chocolate bar. I'm not hungry, and even if I was, I have a baggie of mixed nuts or a fruit smoothie in the fridge. I don't need to get candy. I don't even really like candy all that much, but my brain is telling me to do it. If I get hungry, I'm going to have my nuts and keep on doing my work.

I bought myself a stationary bike for Christmas. I had a lot of gift cards to use, to I made the choice to get the bike, and I've used it every single day. I've decided to take tonight off from using it, because its date night and I know I haven't been spending too much time with my dude. I'll be back up and biking tomorrow morning. I know I need to work on my strength training game if I'm going to really be successful. I'm just trying to find the time and the right workouts for me.

As for life in general, I'm getting married in 99 days and taking two classes to complete my Masters by April. No wonder I don't have time to hang out with my dude. He's super supportive though, and he gets what I'm trying to achieve. I sometimes wish that he made dinner choices a little easier, but I can't fault him for not wanting to change his whole routine for my sake. He's already really picky about food, and he'd be hurting if I made nothing but what I thought I could eat. Yeah, he's an adult and could make his own meals, but he's going to be my husband, I can't be treating him like a roommate ate dinner time.

Well, anyway... I just felt the need to get some stuff out. I feel a little bit more focused on things now that its out of my head. Thanks!

    Hahaha I feel you! My husband boils his own egg noodles to add to the salad and chicken I make for him. I don't eat that but it's fun to cook in the kitchen together! ?? Best wishes and good luck!??

    So, if you're craving chocolate, why not have 1 Hershey kiss, or 1 square of dark chocolate and savor it? That way, you can satisfy your craving and keep it moving. Or do you feel that you will binge if you give in to your xeaving?
