Today has looked a little like this:
- Woke up at 5:00AM. Laid in bed for 8 minutes.
- Hit the gym for...28 minutes on eliptical. I then followed it up with an 8 minute walk on the treadmill and jogged for 7 minutes.I did 1.25 miles in 15 minutes. Not horrible. It was a nice cardio session.
- Post workout meal: Protein powder, blueberries, spinach, banana and water.
Typically, my days are the same as far as food goes.
Breakfasts During the Week: I have a few different breakfasts. 1-Oatmeal with PB and banana. 2-Greek Yogurt with cereal sprinkled on top and a banana. 3-A breakfast sandwich with fruit.
Lunch During the Week: 1-Turkey or Tuna sandwich with a side salad and fruit for dessert. 2-Soup and a side salad. 3-Salad with protein(i.e. chicken, tuna, pork etc). 4-Leftovers from dinner and a side salad.
Dinner During the Week: We have a few signature dinners. 1-Carnitas. 2-Tostadas. 3-Chicken fingers. 4-Baked Chicken and rice. All of which start with side salads.
Weekends are all over the place. I try to stick to the same types of foods, but I am not structured in times I eat, like at all. I also tend to snack a lot. So, weekends are always a challenge for me, but I am hoping to grasp that and really get a handle on them.
Here is a before picture I just found of myself:
I either had a food baby in there or I really was that big, but in complete denial. Unfortunately, it was the denial.
This is about 36 lbs lost and my current after picture:
The plan to lose this weight you ask:
- Portion Control
- Great Food Choices(with occasion indulgences)
- Training for half marathons
- Begin weight training
- Being as active as possible
If there is anything I have learned in the past year and a half, it is that I am doing this for ME! I used to try to lose weight so I could find a hot guy(Ha! I found one when I was almost 20 pounds heavier than I am now). I used to try to lose weight so that people would look at me like wow she has a great body. Now, I choose to lose this weight because everyday I look in the mirror and think 'Look at what you have accomplished. You keep looking better and better. You are happier, healthier and live a better life!'
