Just another manic Monday

Today my goal is to consume 600 calories or less. Hopefully less, but we'll see how that goes. Tomorrow I will fast. I'm actually looking forward to it since I screwed up this weekend.

Also, I don't know if you pay attention to my daily intake tab, but I'm not going to be updating that tab on the weekends because that's usually when I screw up.

So I know this isn't about me, but my mom and I have been working on losing weight together because she's taking me on a cruise at the end of the year, or the beginning of the next.  She's going the weight watchers route.  She's lost 12 pounds in 2 weeks.  I'm so excited for her!  Back-story on my mom.  She used to be REALLY skinny, but then I asked her to quit smoking (because I wanted her to be healthy and I wanted to keep her around as long as possible because my mom is one of my best friends).  Once she quit smoking she pretty much controlled her cravings by food and she gained over 70 pounds.  I'm really happy for her weight loss. :) 

On a side note, the homework I was telling you about, that had to be done by 6pm last night...well the teacher was grading us on it and going to put us all in groups of 5 to work together for the rest of the semester based on how we did on the homework.  (I'm studying business so everything we do is in groups).  My friend and I were upset because we really wanted to be together.  We had a 16.68% chance (yes I like math) of being together and we actually got placed in the same group!  This makes me really happy!  Yesterday, was such a fabulous day :)


  1. Wow congratulations to your mom, that's some good going! :)

    And you like math? Fancy taking my 3hr maths exam for me tomorrow then? Supposed to be revising for it now.... not procrastinating on blogger...

    Glad to hear things sound positive for you (forget the screw up and do better this week)

  2. Yay fasting!! I'm fasting today :) Hope it goes well for you!!

  3. That's awesome for your mom! I'm considering quitting smoking too, but it's actually helping me LOSE weight. Hm? But you're right, it's not the way to go. I'm so happy you and ur friend are in the same group. It makes it so much easier to work!

  4. I am so happy for your mom, that is so awesome!
    And major kudos to you for getting her to quit smoking.
    I am the reason my boyfriend quit.
    I told him I would not stay around if he smoked.
    So yeah.
    I wish you the best of luck today!
    You can do this. :)
    Hang in there and stay strong love! <3

  5. Aww I'm glad your mom lost the weight. Smoking is bad but carrying extra weight is just as bad. Especially since you two are best friends!

    And yay on the cruise, I'm so jealous!

    Good luck with fasting :)

  6. 600 is a good goal. Good luck with your fast!

  7. I relate to what you were saying about your Mom. Two years ago I quit smoking, went through a bad relationship situation, and emotional ate/ate to stop smoking. I gained 100 pounds in those two years! I'm taking it off currently, and it's tough. But, you two cheering each other on- you'll both do great! :)

    What great luck to be placed in a group with your friend! It couldn't have worked out better. :D

    Good luck with your calorie consumption and fast!

  8. Hey, great that your Mom lost the weight :) She will lose the rest of the 70 lbs, too!

    Good for you that you came in the same group with your friend :)
