So, about 2 months ago, I decided to start eating better and try to lose wait.
You can read the first post right here.
I'm down a total of 7 pounds so far. It's not a huge number, but it's a start! I'm pleased with it. I can tell in some of my pants because I've had to tighten my belt a bit! Yay.
I've been trying to walk Sophie daily, as long as the weather cooperates. Some days it's just around the block, but it's better than nothing, right? I need to get motivated and get to the Y more often.
The other day, I had an incredible craving for Mountain Dew. I seriously considered buying one. Then I told myself that I would have to start the Mountain Dew purge all over again and it wasn't worth it. So, I'm sticking to water, chocolate milk, sweet tea on occasion and diet soda. I've only had one non-diet soda this year and that was at the movie...and it was a small. As for the soda, most days I don't even have any.
My water consumption is all over the place. one day last week, I had 9 cups. The next, 2. It's hard for me to want to drink it, even with the Propel or other flavors in it. I keep pushing though.
I'm using an app on my computer and Ipod to keep track of calories and exercise. It's good to see the numbers and have an idea of the number so I can try to stay under or right at my alloted calories for the day.
My fear though, is once I have a job that my newly formed eating habits will go out the window. I'll have to ponder what type of things I could do to prevent myself from backtracking.
I haven't allowed myself any days to just totally blow my calories. Some days, I was over but most days I'm under and I think they balance out.
Looking forward to more consistent warm weather so that Sophie and I can walk longer and further. I also will need to get the tire back on my bike so I can ride again, too!
