Well, my weight went back up, to 122, but I’m not letting that deter me. :) Honestly, I just wasn’t getting on the scale for awhile because I was scared of the number, but when I saw I was 125 last week I thought I needed to do something about it. My ideal weight is 112-114, and I was at that weight for 2 years, without a problem. Prior to that, I was in the high 130’s. But basically, I just had to tell myself I could do it again!
Exercise didn’t change…I haven’t been actively working out since the summer. Boo. :( I just told myself ‘I like the exercise’ of going up and down the stairs so many times during the course of the day or whatnot. So, no change in exercise, but a change in attitude.
Huge change in diet. I tried to eat foods I loved and not ones that made me feel crappy—I did just ok with that one, haha. And I didn’t snack as much. I also didn’t overindulge but I didn’t restrict myself either and tried to eat when I was actually hungry, rather than decide to eat based on the time of day. So, I turned down a lot of offers for food, because I actually listened to my body.
I did record what I ate for about 3 days. This was the quick rundown:
-red velvet cake
-salad with grilled veggies
-small pecan caramel cluster
-lunch at Indian restaurant
-red velvet cake, coffee
-1/2 chargrilled chicken sandwich + 2 nuggets from Chic-fil-a
I will say that eating lighter and having salad in the mix made me feel fantastic. I forgot how nice it feels to not have my tummy be so full to where it is uncomfortable! I hope that helps a bit! :) We can do it! 2 years ago
