Eeeee So Busy!

In the midst of working 55+ hours/week over the last two weeks trying to get everything ready for leaving the country. I am trying to get back on top of eating and everything. I was at 161.0 lbs on Monday which is pretty high for me. I'm below it now, but it's still the Monday benchmark.

My plan right now is to get through the next few weeks and then attack dieting hard. Once I get through this weekend (graduation and working another 60 hour week), Matt and I head out of the country Tuesday for nearly two weeks. We're going to Scotland and England. I am pretty pumped. Any readers out there in the UK want a visit!? :)

Food for today:
Lemonade breakfast 110 calories- not pictured

Lunch: Lean Cuisine 270 calories

Snack: Pretzels 110 calories not pictured
Dinner: Salad 150 calories, feta, spinach, walnuts, craizins, balsamic

Snack: baked fries 350 calories?

Total: 890, not enough but was too busy to get more in!

Much love!

Its Been a While!

Hello, everyone!! I've been a busy bee lately while I've been away from here. I FINISHED MY THESIS!!! I defended last Thursday and have been celebrating pretty heavily since. I also had a paper published last week which was exciting. You can call me Master Casey now. ;) I'm pretty flipping excited.

Honestly, the time off writing and tracking my food was refreshing. I visited my sisters in SC, I went camping, and did a lot of my own things without having to pressure myself about food and exercise because I set that goal aside. I think many of my healthy habits were steam-rolled by the many nights I worked from 8am to 3am the next morning. I'm pretty sure the breakfast ladies at Hardee's recognize me now. However- despite the relaxed eating, I did find time to do my longest run ever of around 6 miles. Hell yeah! (I couldn't walk for like 3 days, but that is unimportant.)

Its going to take some work, but I'm diving back in to my food monitoring for weight loss. My current weight is 158.0 lbs which is up 2.2 lbs from when I last weighed. 

I have a feeling this is going to be difficult getting back into the swing of things. I have a lot going on at work right now and will be working well over 40 hrs a week for the next 2 weeks at which point I graduate and then go to Scotland for nearly two weeks for my best friend's wedding! Over the weekend, I decided that if I waited for normalcy to return before I dove back in, I would be waiting around for quite a while.

3 days

Three days left until my defense. Three days left to freedom. Three days until I'm back to tracking!

Hope you're all well!
