TORI. I have said before that you sound like a strong woman and I hope that helps you now. You sound like I was when I was much younger and I came through a lot of s**t and survived. From everything you've said on this forum, you ARE awesome in so many ways ans you should never sell yourself short. If others can't appreciate you that's their problem and they will regret it some day So onwards and upwards girl, you've a lot of living to get on with.

I went over in calories, but everything I ate was pretty healthy, so I don't feel too bad. I was doing well until I made modified burritos for supper - shredded chicken breast and black beans with a packet of fancy Mexican spices, peppers, mushrooms and onions, and spinach, tomato, salsa, a bit of guac and a bit of light sour cream on top in an "ancient grains" tortilla. Should've thought ahead and eaten a bit less during the day, though. Or skipped the tortilla and plopped the filling on top of a salad. Oh well.
1) 1,650 calories max/day (allow myself 1 guilt free day over 1,650) - ???, 1567, 1651 (close enough!), 1654 (close enough again!), 1747, 1618 (and that's including a DQ hot fudge sundae), 1861

5) calorie deficit 600+ - surplus for sure, 927, 674, 1109, 1016, 898, 314

Tori - I'm so sorry about the breakup. Pick yourself up and keep moving on. Don't look back because there is only better things to come! Hugs to you
Overall I am satisfied how the week came out. Woke up early Sunday, hopped out of bed, made a list of TO-Do's and that is where the day ended. Read a book and did nothing at all. Need to make a better effort to keep balanced acheivable goals.
