Project: No More Fat!3:05 PM
I do not want this post to be a rant about how much I hate my body, or how I want to be thin blah, blah, blah. I have just realized that ever since last summer, I have not been taking care of my body as much as I should. I have been indulging in Taco-bell, pizza, and a ton of chips. The only liquids I ever drink are coffee and beer. (%90 coffee, %10 beer and NO water!) I am always tired, I hardly exercise except for walking Louie, and I just feel like crap.
I know most of this is because of my crazy schedule. I either eat in the car, on the road from work to school or at 10:30 at night when I finally get home. I have also been avoiding the grocery store, there are no fresh veggies and fruit in my apartment.
I also have inherited hypoglycemia from my mother's side of the family, and I am supposed to be very careful about sugar as it can make me crazed for about an hour, before I pass out entirely. I have been sticking to diet soda, and I drink my coffee black, but I need to eat more protein to keep my energy up. The good side of this is it means I get to eat a lot of cheese and peanut butter, I am a peanut butter freak, but they are high in fat. So I have to work my way around that.
So where to start? I am thinking of this as I have an insane next four weeks...well, I am starting with asking Kyle to pick up a salad to go with our pizza tonight. :P (need one last meal right?) And also by doing 10-15 minutes of a small workout every morning. I have all of these little workout DVD's that I have been hoarding for years. Also, it seems lame but take the stairs, park farther away, and I am also going to start walking at lunch time. I am going to start eating at home before I go out at night, as well as ordering vodka and diet instead of my usual PBR. I am going to drink water, I am going to buy more fresh food and post any healthy meals on here that I make.
I checked with my doctor on my BMI and it looks like my goal weight is going to be 116. I currently reside at 130, I do not have far to go, but the challenge is to also increase my strength. I do not want to be boring and cut-out all junk food, (hence the pizza tonight) but I want to make it more of a treat. Especially since the junk food causes me to spend more money. I am going to keep updates on here and I am very open to any suggestions that you guys might have for me.
On another note, the apartment has been clean all week! There is still the Spring cleaning that we have to do, so very soon the tour of the apartment will happen on this blog. I am excited about that because Kyle and I worked really hard last summer paint and organizing the place.
