Hey girls, wow I've been gone a while!
Haven't done too well. I think I've gained about 5 lbs. Eaten complete crap for over a week now.
And I was beating myself up, but you know what?
I got off track. It happens. I've still lost over 20 lbs, and the five I gained will be gone in no time.
It's going to be fine. I won't give up. One week is NOTHING in the grand scheme of things. When I reach my goal weight, this last week won't even be remembered. It's no big deal, but it did give me a chance to re-evaluate.
Going to eat much cleaner; like I said before, even when I stay in my CALORIE limit, I still don't eat as healthy as I'd like. So, I'm going to try to do that from now on. Whole grains, fruits, veggies, etc. Limit meat and sugar intake. Limit processed foods. HIGHLY limit saturated fats, and try to avoid trans fats altogether.
Yeah, a quick tip? When you get off track, watch Supersize Me. Oh yeah. I watched it twice today, and I'm more than ready to wake up and work out, eat a healthy breakfast, and do amazing. It just makes me realize how big of a problem obesity is in America, and I don't want to be part of that problem, I want to be part of the solution.
Eating crap feels good for a few minutes. Eating healthy feels good for life.
I eat to make myself feel better. I eat because I'm bored. Not because I'm hungry. So, I'm going to keep a log for the next little while where I write down every time I eat, and how I feel before and after I do so. I think it will help me stay on track to really realize why I'm eating.
So, tomorrow I become part of the solution. I start my journey to be one less overweight/obese American. And I want to help others as well; I can and will do this. I feel even more motivated than I did before.
Annnd, we're getting a gym membership next month :) A family membership. So we're ALL going to start working out and getting in shape together. My mom told me, since I'm planning on becoming a personal trainer (going to start studying for my certification in about a month), that I needed to design her a workout plan. She told me what she wants to target, and she wants to workout 30-60 minutes 3-4 times a week, so I can start with that.
I am sooo excited about having my gym back. Group classes is the most important part to me, I love them!
So, here we go. I'm done binging and eating crap, and I'm done being lazy. Tomorrow I will rock this shit, and every day after as well.
By the way, had a fantastic smoothie this morning, try it out!
Double Chocolate Banana Smoothie
- 1 packet of No Sugar Added Chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast
- 1 cup of chocolate Silk soymilk
- 1/2 of an avocado
- 2-3 ice cubes
Yummmmmm. It's chocolatey, but not too strong, and you can't taste the avocado but it gives it this AMAZING smooth, creamy texture. That's the recipe for a single serving, so double or whatever for more. Also, it has 425 calories.
So girls, remember to rock every day. No matter how much you messed up before, every day is a new start. We can do this :)
Please leave lots of comments, I need the encouragement!
