Today is the end of week one of eight. My progress has not been perfect but it is only the first week so I am hopeful.
I’ve reached the point (again) in which I am upset with letting myself give up on my health. The only way to avoid this is to STOP GIVING UP!
This coming week will be most challenging, though, because my friend is visiting. These trips usually revolve around Publix hoagies, bang-bang shrimp (from Bonefish) and other not-so-healthy foods. My goal is to not deprive myself or else my cravings will increase, so I will limit my consumption and work on finding healthy alternatives when possible.
If I reach my goal of 130 lbs, then I should easily hit below 25% body fat.
Looking at this chart, I am extremely upset that I am considered “overfat“… that is a HUGE wakeup call for someone who always considered herself, relatively healthy. I lost 20 lbs last summer and am realizing now that “skinny fat” is a real term!
I will reach my goals because the only person that can hold me back is me. And, I want this!
My studying increased exponentially today so my eating reduced. I woke up at 10 AM and had a leftover smoothie and handful of grapes with about 16 oz of water. I completed my dog walks for the day and came home to study.
I was able to get through about half of my outline before hunger struck and I made my go-to pancakes and bacon, yum!!! I watched the movie “Catch Me if You Can” and learned that I am wasting a lot of time attending school since he studied for two-weeks and passed a bar exam.
My craving for ice cream did not roar its head today but now that I typed this I may have cursed myself. It’s only day 4 of 8 weeks… so I am hoping I have more days like today than bad ones. We shall see how everything goes!
I may try to weigh myself at the end of the week to see if anything has changed
Breakfast: Protein, Strawberry and 1/2 banana smoothie; handful of grapes
Lunch: Protein Pancake and Bacon, organic apple butter
Today is harder because the stress of finals is starting to takeover. My first one is on Friday and the second is Wednesday. However, I should be fine since I feel confident in my preparations throughout the sem– WHO AM … Continue reading →
