Today was a long day. Me and my husband drove 4 hours to see his friend get married. Travis drove all the way there and I just slept what a good husband. By the time we got to the town the wedding was in I had to hurry and get ready. I literally got in the car this morning in what I slept in.it was a beautiful wedding. I cried a little even though I barely know his friend and wife . It motivates to stay on track so me and my husband can renew our vows when I get to my goal weight. I felt good today. I’ll post pictures from today at the bottom. I haven’t worn a dress in a long time because I hate the way I look in them. I know I probably still looked gross but I was super confident!
I ended up cheating even though I said I wouldnt. I just wanted to enjoy myself. We ate at the wedding and then got fast food on the way back to the hotel. I’m kind of disappointed because I was at my lowest the last time I weighed myself. I just have to get back on track tomorrow! I’m not cheating for the rest of the summer no excuses!
We got to paint our initials on one of the cars at the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo Texas!
Today was the official day of school for teachers. We had a professional development day. It was pretty easy. All I had to do was break down my room a little more and move a few boxes out. I’m happy this year is over but I feel like my summer is so packed full of things I need to do. I have two 4 day professional development camps. Both are 4 days long and are from 8-3:30 everyday. I just need to get through them. I am also taking pictures at a summer camp for my mom. I also need to finish painting my new classroom. I hope I at least have some time to relax.
For lunch today all the teachers went to Chili’s. I really didn’t want to because there really wasn’t anything I could eat. I decided to go and decided to get a steak. We all got there at 11:30. I didn’t get my food until 12:50! I ordered a ribeye with seared shrimp. When I got my food it was cold. I ate the shrimp and maybe a third of the steak. Everything I’ve looked at saying the steak has a ton of carbs but I think that’s with all the sides. I hope that was a good choice. I really feel like I’m doing well.
I skipped breakfast.
For lunch I had ribeye and sear shrimp. 2.5g carbs and 455 calories.
For dinner I had a salad and a couple hot links. 8g carbs and 950 calories.
Total carbs for the day 10.5g. under my 20g carb goal for the day. Total calories for the day 1615. Only 15 calories over my Max goal of 1600 for the day. My macros today were 3% carbs, 23% protein, and 72% fat. So close to my 5%, 20%, 75% goals.
So far I have only drank about 32oz of water. I’m going try and drink as much as possible before I got to bed.
So I just now realized that I didn’t post a blog yesterday. Today was the last day of school. It was really emotional for me. This was my very first class. Even though this semester was harder then I ever thought it would be I’m still going to miss those kids!
I was tempted to cheat today. I’ve been starving all day. I ate my lunch a few hours early and did have anything else to eat. My class had a ice cream party today. I bought ice cream and a ton of toppings. M&ms, mini Oreos, marshmallows, chocolate chips, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, sprinkles and cherries. We had half a bag of Oreos left over we also had some cupcakes left over. At first I decided I was just going to cheat and eat the rest. then I thought I really don’t want to see the scale go up in a few days especially since I’m at my lowest. I decided not to eat them. I was mad that I didn’t eat them at first but now I’m okay with it. I came home and ate dinner so now I’m fine.
I skipped breakfast.
For lunch I had chicken cooked in coconut oil with jalapenos and hot sauce. 0g carbs and 490 calories.

Only two more school days left of this year. I am so excited and stressed out. I have to pack up two rooms and get ready for our party on the last day of school. I’m so ready for 3rd grade. I also signed up to start taking my masters classes this summer. I’m very excited to get started. I should graduate summer 2019!
I was so excited today. Me and my husband are going to a wedding this weekend and I wanted to get a new dress for it. I was actually able to find one that fit and I think looks good on me. I also needed a strapless bra. I have always had a hard time finding bras but I was able to grab one off the rack and it actually fit! I love losing weight. I feel so good today

Today went really smooth. It’s the last Monday of the school year. I’m really excited that this is the last week of school. J can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. This week will be tough on my diet. I wanted to cheat today. Another student had a birthday and brought cupcakes. I wanted one so bad but I didnt. At the end of this week my class is having an end of the year ice cream party. I refuse to cheat. I’ve done really good so far and I don’t want to mess that up.

I have drank about 75oz of water. I’m going to drink another 25oz before bed.
So this morning I weighed myself expecting to still be a couple pounds up. I actually lost all my cheat day weight finally!! I’m back down to 321.8lbs. I have 18 days to lose those 21.8lbs. I hope I can do it or at least get close. I feel like tracking macros has been helping so I’m going to continue to track them.
Today was a super emotional day for me. Mother days. I was actually supposed to be a mother this mothers day. I managed to get through the day without cheating even though there were times I just wanted to eat my feelings. I kept busy. I had 3 photography sessions today which I realized is way too many for one day! I had fun. There were times when I did break down and cry but I never gave in. I’m going to keep my head held high and know that I can get through all the tough stuff without eat how I feel.
