What happens when I have only eaten 600ish calories before dinner, and had an intense spin workout that makes you feel like death? Any guesses? No? I’ll tell you then :) You eat a fantastic burrito bowl from Chipotle :D
I honestly don’t understand my body sometimes. I ate more than I should have last night, and my period came this morning. But I’ll take it :P

Every time I leave his apartment, I get extremely sad. Except the whole two minute drive home (yes, I could literally walk there) I’m smiling from ear to ear. I leave his warmth, to climb into my freezing bed. Definitely not ideal. I’m smitten. I have no idea why I chose to be single all these years. I’m glad I waited though because I have a tendency to fall for douchebags....
OHEMEFFGEE! Yes, a lumberjack! I’m going to buy the boy a flannel so he’ll look like a lumberjack. Dream come true :D

TMI Tuesday Anyone?
While I do my homework of course ;)
Do your homework :)
Do homework! You’ll thank yourself later.
Nothing exciting to report :)
Feel free to skip over.
The boy and I are texting about random crap while he does laundry, and it somehow got on the topic of my opinion of sex. He knows I’m a virgin, which neither of us have a problem with. I told him I’m definitely not a prude, and I think sex and the human body is a natural and beautiful thing. Weird coming from the girl who has body issues, but there it is. I don’t think sex should...
I’m keeping the jeans :) I took before pictures in them, but I’m posting them after the cut because it’s not attractive. Unzipped: Zipped: I just keep telling myself that when I look at these in a few months, I’ll be happy with the changes. Progress..that is why I’m posting. That being said, here are some pictures of me in my 14’s. I literally...
So I need your guys’ opinions. I bought a pair of American Eagle jeans on Black Friday in a size 10. They were bought for the sole purpose of being goal jeans. I am in no way a size 10 now, but they actually button. However, since I bought them, I’ve been thinking about taking them back. What if I never fit in them? Should I just exchange them and get a size that fits? They were...
Normally, I am someone who loves Mondays. It is the start to a new week, everything that happened last week is in the past. I also get to sleep in a little on Monday mornings so maybe that has something to do with it.. But this Monday has been shit. I woke up in a bad mood. Then as I’m walking to spinning, a bee stung me in the thigh. Yes, the thigh. And not on the front of the thigh. But...
I completely forgot about the whole posting weigh ins daily. I haven’t even been weighing in daily, mostly because I knew the number wouldn’t be great. But it’s going down, slowly but surely. That’s about ten pounds I want to lose this coming month. It will be difficult, but I just have to practice self control. Strangely I don’t feel disappointed that I’m...
Nutella spread on a piece of sourdough wheat bread, topped with a few banana slices. Perfect ending to the night :) No picture because I was helping my brother with something while I was eating it, but I’m sure it will be consumed again!
Revisiting November Goals
I thought I’d do this now since December is quickly approaching. I had three goals for November and they were: •worry less about food and calories. •run/walk 50 miles. •run my 5k in under 40 minutes. I did worry less about food and calories this month. I pretty much go in phases of counting calories and just using simple portion control. However, worrying less made me gain some weight,...
Life has been kind of blah lately, but I’m working on changing that :) P.S. Almost done Christmas shopping!
P.S. The boy cooked me dinner the other night. Well more like barbecued, but I figure it’s the same thing. I definitely find men who cook in any way shape or form attractive. We had chicken, which was literally out of this world delicious. He also started talking about me possibly meeting his friends this weekend. Which isn’t a problem, but it just kind of solidifies the fact that...
Official Turkey Trot Time
I finished at 36:53. That’s a 11:54 minute/mile pace. Pretty damn excited. I hadn’t run much the week beforehand, so I’m impressed with myself. That’s definitely a new PR, and definitely the fastest mile pace I’ve had in a while.
It is very nice
to wake up the same weight you were pre-Thanksgiving feast (178.8). My original plan was to eat anything in moderation, which I didn’t really do. Dinner wasn’t even the problem because we ate early and I was still full from lunch. Lunch was lots of veggies with my Greek yogurt dip, some strawberries with this cream cheese/marshmallow dip, and obscene amount of some delicious bread....
I went to sleep at 5:30am, and woke up at 8am on the dot. Body, why must you do this to me? PS Do not run, not stretch, stand on your feet all day, wait outside Target for six hours, shop for five, and then expect to feel good. My hamstrings are so tight right now it’s insane.
You know what I love about running in the morning?
Being able to eat two breakfasts :) Waffle and peanut butter before. Turkey bacon and eggs after. Both only equal 300ish calories together. I also made ranch dip with Greek yogurt for later which everyone in my family thinks is the most disgusting idea ever. Little do they know, I will be consuming 140ish calories of dip, while they will have double or triple that ;)
Turkey Trot is Done!
To be honest, I’ve been dreading it ALL week and even contemplated leaving even after I got my tee shirt and race bib. I realized that wasn’t even rational thinking, so I pinned the bib on and just did it. And I’m so glad I did. I started my day with a toasted Kashi waffle with some peanut butter, along with a shit ton of water. It was the perfect way to energize me. The...
Internet is kinda funky at my house right now, so I’m only able to post if I got somewhere with wifi (like Starbucks, where I am now). I’m finally on Thanksgiving break until Monday! Spin was my last class, and it literally felt like it was dragging! I worked up a sweat though, and it actually felt like a workout, which I will definitely need before tomorrow. Tomorrow, I have the...
Definitely thinking about getting some Vibram Five Fingers. I’m no stranger to being barefoot, so I don’t consider that a problem. I’ll be going to a running store and asking questions, but I was wondering if any of you have personal experiences with them?
So I ended up not getting coffee because I didn’t have time. I am now sitting in my two hour pre-calc class while we go over a test. I really wish I had caffeine to keep me awake, but I guess tumblr will have to do. Keep me entertained?
Getting down. I ate a little more than I should have last night, but the scale still went down so I’m happy. Now I’m off to Starbucks for a skinny peppermint mocha before class :)
I know it’s not real weight. Hoping to be back down to 175 by Thanksgiving. Which is totally possible with the exercise plan for the week, lots of water, and no slacking on food.
Monday: spin. Tuesday: 3 mile run. Wednesday: spin. Thursday: 5k Turkey Trot. I won’t be doing anything on Friday except shopping and then sleeping the rest of the day away. I’m going to start standing in line around 6pm Thursday evening, then waiting for Target to open at midnight. Then buying lots of other things I don’t need but will buy anyway :D I can feel myself...

There is a mouse in my bedroom. I saw it run from one side of the room to the other while I was doing homework. Now I am in my mom’s room, while my brother is in mine, trying to catch the mouse. Definitely not going in until it’s caught. I don’t even know how it got in the house :(

Weekend Plans/Shit That Needs to be Done
•Clean my room. Yes, this is on my to do list every weekend, and it gets done. Then I get lazy and my rooms becomes a shit storm. •Laundry. •Grocery shopping/meal planning. •Christmas gift planning/shopping. •Math homework x4. •Start on history extra credit paper. •Psychology write up. •Clean floors for my crazy mother. •Clean my car. •Hike with the boy (who needs a blog nickname).

I'm growing! Emotionally :)
This isn’t a post directly related to weight loss, but I think some personal things go hand in hand with weight loss and creating a healthier lifestyle. This blog isn’t just about becoming healthier, but growing as a person. But it’s a semi long post, so I’ll put it under here. A few nights ago I posted about how I’m finally ready to let someone into my life. Not...
Tumblr, I would absolutely love it if the “Read More” option was working. Please, and thank you. Love, Brittany.
You know what sucks?
Ordering a 100 calorie tall skinny peppermint mocha. And then getting a 300 calorie normal peppermint mocha with normal milk and whipped cream. And I was too nice to ask them to remake it. I considered it my breakfast.
Up a bit but I know it’s because I ate a little too much yesterday. I had delicious frozen yogurt when I was out with my mom yesterday that I ran across a busy street for. And when we got home I had some pizza. I had only eaten about 850 calories prior to all that though. I’m starting to feel less worried about the food I eat. I don’t know if this is good or bad because on one...
I ran guys and gals! I had some time before class, so I put on my shoes and went. It was only a mile and a half, in a little over 19 minutes. My pace was about a 13 minute/mile on average. I’m always really surprised that my pace isn’t drastically slower even when I feel like I walk a ton. I can, however, feel that my endurance has decreased, but I can pick it back up in no time :) ...
Weighing in everyday is really helping my motivation. I think about things before I eat them because I know they’ll show on the scale the next day. I am determined to post every weight, good, bad, or ugly.
