"I'm on my way from misery to happiness today;
I'll do my best, I'll do my best to do the best I can!"
I had a banana for breakfast/lunch (lol) and then for dinner I had grilled salmon, salad and brown rice. Again, ate half the portion. I'm not sure how many calories it was to begin with, but I guess what matters is that it wasn't over 500 and then I ate half of it. So I definitely stayed under 500.
A good day! :) I had to talk myself out of purging dinner. As much as I wanted to, I know I need a standard meal here and there to keep my body going at a normal rate. If I suddenly crash my intake I'm just going to end up binging and packing the pounds back on. Not to mention I don't want to make purging an every-day thing.
Today I feel like I can see some progress! My arms and hands keep tapping my ribs and hips and they really feel different. I know it can't be a huge change from yesterday to today, but you know how it is, when you feel like you really notice it.
And I slipped on a pair of jeans that I wore just five days ago and they're a bit less form-fitting. Yay! I know it's small, but progress should be small. As much as I want to wake up in a different body I'm starting to accept and celebrate the little victories and changes. It makes the day so much brighter.

Motivations & Goals:
I've decided I want to format my blog like this from now on - starting with a break-down of the day (boring stuff) and then some goals and/or new ways to motivate myself. I usually come up with atleast one thing every day to use as motivation. And posting it here makes it all the more powerful for me.
1. Red Heart Band aid:
I had a little band aid on my ring finger today. I drew a little red heart on it and decided that it would help me eat less - because every time I reached for food that RED heart would be there.
I want to come up with something like this every day. Always red or pink!
But each one slightly different. I think having little trinkets around to inspire me helps. Changing up my little motivational tools helps too!
I really love how motivational/inspiring music videos can be. Lady GaGa's Alejandro video is big-time inspiring, she's so thin and grungy, yummm I want to be like that! Going to make a list of music videos that really inspire me and hopefully download/buy a few.
I think I'll finish this post later, I'm really in the mood to work out now!!
Hang in there ladies, stay strong and lovely! <3
