Daily Reports: 9/23/14 & 9/24/14

Tuesday, September 23, 2014:

Overall it was a good day. I was productive in my work and school life. I did though put aside my personal life. I did not work out. Though, I made sure to eat healthy food. 

Wednesday, September 25, 2014:

Yesterday was also a mixed day. Food wise, I could have eaten healthier but I somewhat compensated by working out for 40 minutes. 


Boy am I out of shape. Turbo Jam kicked my butt!

My asthma and knee pain kicked in mid video. I had to slow down a bit. I’m not sad about it, though. I’m actually proud for pushing through.

Daily Report: 9/22/14

Here is what I had today: 

Breakfast:

  • egg whites, hash-brown, bell peppers, small piece of cheese
  • Meta-D juice

Lunch: 

  • 1 can of tuna, 1/4 can of medium black olives, 1 1/4 tablespoons of mayo
  • Veggie pizza patty from Trader Joes (130 cals)

Snack:

  • 3 cups of cereal and 1 cup of milk (bad choice, should have restricted myself to 1 cup of cereal)

Dinner: 

  • 2 slides of bread, 1/2 medium avocado, 2oz of gouda cheese, 1/3 teaspoon of mayo
  • 6 small cookies (should not have eaten this. Mom bought them for me, i forced myself. should have said no)

Workout:

  • 40 minutes on my stationary bike
  • 20-30 minutes of cardio (Turbo Jam)

I am beyond full. I have to learn how to restrict myself when I’m at home alone.

Today’s Goals:

  • Drink 3 litters of water
  • Workout for at least 30 minutes
  • Take a break, from working, every hour and walk around for about 2 minutes.

 

Tomorrow’s Goals:

  • eat 1 fruit
  • workout at least 30 minutes
  • avoid bread/carbs

I still have a long way from reaching my ultimate goal. But I hope that by incorporating small goals, I will be able to accomplish it. I just have to remember that anything is possible.

New Beginnings

Within the last 12 months, I have gained over 20 lbs.  I have no one to blame but myself. I let myself go. I allowed stress to get the best of me and ended up with nothing but a pair of jeans and a couple of shirts to wear (I have a closet FULL of clothes that I cannot wear!).

Weirdly enough, I still feel beautiful. Even though nothing fits… Though I know this is not an excuse to allow myself get bigger. I don’t want to blind myself with this self-love. I know I’m overweight. My scale read 163.1 lbs this morning for crying out loud!  I haven’t weighted that in over 5 years! It’s like I’m in high school all over again. All I wear are black pieces of clothing (yup, even in hot weather)… I miss my shorts. :’(

Anyways, the extra weight has already started to take a toll on my body. My joints hurt (hands, knees, ankles) everyday, I can’t breath right, my heart is overworking itself and my acne is coming back. Not to mention, my face looks bloated and I have a muffin top! 

This past week I’ve been making the effort to eat better. By packing my lunches, avoiding carbs and by staying away from unnecessary fats and sweets. It seems to be working. I’m starting to feel slightly better. I know I won’t lose this weight over night, but it’s a start. 

I’m going to continue making better food decisions by planning my meals ahead of time. I’m also going to start setting myself goals for the day ahead. For example, tomorrow’s goals are the following:

  • Drink 3 litters of water
  • Workout for at least 30 minutes
  • Take a break, from working, every hour and walk around for about 2 minutes.

Little steps like those should help me get to my goal. If all goes well, I should be 153 within a month. 

xoxo,

M
