    I never got around to updating last week, so here are two weeks' worth. I had a short-notice trip out of state that really put a dent in available time. All in all, though, I managed to keep up with things reasonably well.

    1. Improve eating habits, specifically eating between meals.
    It's easier not to eat between meals, and overall to eat less, due to the warmer weather, so doing well on that count, travel notwithstanding. Lots of fresh fruit and veggies available, which I really enjoy, so easy to keep healthy snacks on hand.

    2. Get more exercise: at least three times each week, in addition to martial arts practice.
    Did only two workout video sessions each week, but also got in a bike ride and a walk last week, and a bike ride and two afternoons of yard work this week - cutting (by hand), hauling, and splitting wood, mostly. Exercise, outdoor time, and fun combined.

    3. Weight loss.
    Still stable - will be nice to lose a few more pounds over the summer . . .

    Oohh man! I got some new recipes to try out and I'll let you all know how they went, but today I did really good on my food (greens for ALL THE THINGS!) and I am LOVING P90X3! They had a workout called Dynamix today, and it was just so focused on strengthening, stretching and lengthening the hips and legs.. and I swear I needed it so bad I didn't even realize.. my muscles in my knees were locking up today because my leg muscles are so tight lately.

    Also, red pepper spread is an amazing substance, and anyone looking for a high-flavor low-calorie spread to replace on their sandwiches, crackers, or anything, that stuff is the bomb.

    Little late but:

    Week 23

    -Meh. I did not do very well with exercising. It was a stressful week at work. I just forgot to go on my walks during lunch.

    -Eating was better though. So I'm glad about that. I realize, I lose more weight and also feel so much better when I eat a diet that has more protein in it.

    I don't think I updated for last week. It was good! Happy to be back on track with my 3 days of bodyweight exercise. I switched to a new program on the third day and have been sticking with it this week. I like it so far, or maybe I just like change. Still haven't decided what I'm going to do while I'm travelling in Europe for all of July. Probably nothing, but we'll see.

    P90X3 is in full swing. I have worked out at least 3x a week, sometimes doing two workouts in a night (a high intensity followed by a low intensity, or the other way around, or sometimes even just two low intensity ones) and while I need to dig out my weights and pull up bar still, I'm really happy that I'm back on track working out in SOME way, shape, or form, even if I've lost a little sleep along the way.

    Also, I have been FAIRLY within range on my myfitnesspal food tracker.
    The highest calorie day: 1823
    The lowest calorie day: 761
    I had three days over the calorie count by +100, and three days of lower than the calorie count of <100 the goal, and today will end up right on the dot at 1185.

    I figured out how to input recipes, so I've been using that more lately. It's really motivating.

    Also, a cool 100 calorie dessert recipe for s'mores http://www.grocerybudget101.com/cont...ores-cup-bites since it's summer time and all!

    Went to a new nature trail to get my wiggles out of my system before studying this evening. That place is awesome, and comparable to my old running trails in terms of nature settings and such. More bugs to deal with, but it's cool. Nothing some bug spray can't fix.

    On the menu this evening:
    - Shrimp ceviche with hot sauce served with cucumber slices instead of crackers because I'm in the mood for cold stuff
    - Grilled vegetable kabobs
    - Miso vinaigrette mixed greens salad with chow mein noodles

    And tonight I'm cooking up some baked breakfast cookies for breakfasts the next four days along with my oats, and lunch will consist of a buffalo chicken dip sandwich or a prosciutto/mozzarella/basil sandwich and low-sodium soup that I can keep in my school's fridge along with a lemon and some seasoning I can use for flavoring the soups. And a mason jar of mint/lime water now that I have some cool flip lids for the jars.

    I really want to try to get some decent Popsicle makers too.. It'd be nice to get some orange mojito pops for after working out

    Another bad week for me. I'm starting to come too, though. Not out of discipline, but because my clothes are starting to get tight again. Oh well, if I can get back on track before I bow out I'll be happy.

    ^ Man, already next to the last?! It's crazy.. how fast time has gone with so little done. :/ I have to say I'm not very proud of myself. I'm at the same place I started--I lost, gained, lost, gained, and now I'm here.. with no muscles, no strength, no weight changes really, and just getting on track. Sad thing...

    I only went 11 calories over today for my meals. Somehow. Miracle. Tomorrow I'll be grocery shopping for some hot new dinners and lunches tomorrow too.. I don't know if I'll work out tonight since my tummy's upset, but I might just get a lower-intensity workout going and power it through.
