Today was interesting.
There I said it.
I have to get it off my chest!
I ate fast food which I said I would NEVER do anymore but it was still less than 1,000 calories. I know that still doesn’t make it right.
I looked online earlier and found this really cool reliable site where I can calculate how many calories my body can take in a day from entering my weight, the weight I’d like to be at, my height and my age. It’s very informational.
Here is the link: http://nutrition.about.com/library/bl_nutrition_guide.htm
Although I feel extremely guilty about eating fast food I was very careful on what I ordered and literally took time to count calories. Eating fast food sucked cause I got hungry later in the day and I choked down some celery sticks. I like ants on a log but eating just celery is gross. I wanted more junk food but I am so glad I stuck it out and instead of running to McDonalds like I normally would have I drank water and worked out! SO I punched myself by eating fast food and patted my back all in the same day. Talk about a roller coaster!
BIG NEWS!! I FINALLY got walking shoes baby!! So PUMPED! They are wonderful. The last time I got a nice pair of shoes they were my Etnies in middle school!!! My new shoes are very white. I want to get them dirty lol. You can spot me from a mile away. I am very excited to walk on Monday with my friend. My feet are sooo much better. Almost all healed and they don’t bug me anymore. I honestly wasn’t going to work out today but I did. We have this treadmill in the basement that Michael got for free a while ago and it doesn’t work! But I walked, sprinted, ran, walked, slug walked for a straight half hour by making it go myself. Let me tell you, THAT is a great workout! I think I’m going to break up with Richard Simmons and do the treadmill instead. I sweated more and literally felt good about it! Sometimes Richard makes me feel dumb. I am extremely clumsy and uncoordinated so you can only imagine how I look trying to go along with his every move. The songs also get very old, very fast! So today I sped up with the times and worked out to “I’m sexy and I know it”. Great workout song! Motivates me! I recommend it.
It’s Michaels Birthday Sunday. I already know I am probably going to cheat but not with cake. I never was one for sweets. We ordered Beef-A-Roo beef to surprise him and have sandwiches with au jus. But I will just remember to watch my portion and to eat within moderation. Beef can’t be THAT bad. I know the au jus has a lot of salt in it but I will take it easy. I can’t believe how hard it has been just to not eat crap! But with me drinking more water lately I am not hungry all the time and I know my body is going through a change. Not to be gross but my bathroom visits have been more frequent!
Oh crap! I forgot to weigh in today to see where I’m at. I am going to go do that right now. Hold on….. LOL
Ok, in the past 11 days I have lost 2 pounds. I knew it wasn’t going to be that much because I didn’t really get going on this until this past week. Starting a new lifestyle/diet is like going through puberty all over again. Very awkward and confusing ha ha. Also out of the past 11 days I only worked out/exercised 4 times. I am not going to be hard on myself because next week I hope to kick butt after being able to eat healthier and have a steady work out routine. I might have only lost 2 pounds so far but I have learned a great deal and am super excited about my future. By this time next year I hope to be down to 180 pounds or fewer than 200. That means I have to loose 158 pounds. I don’t know!! Only time will tell. I never actually gave my body a chance to use its full potential. I always ate what I wanted to eat and rarely did any exercise so if I keep a healthy diet; maybe my metabolism will surprise me.
GHETTO TREADMILL! Hey, whatever works right?!
