Resetting my eating habits

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

Ok so it's the middle of the semester and while I've gained no more than 5 pounds, I'd like it to stop there. So time to reset my habits again! It's not an easy thing to do at school. The "healthy options" here are gigantic salads which look good but they're loaded with fried chicken, cheese, and full fat dressing. more than 600 calories in one of those puppies! A slice of pizza is better than that! My back isn't great, so carrying loads of extra stuff so I can eat better isn't the best option. So I'm going to be packing small, but filling things. I have armed myself with Healthy Choice soups to bring with me. They're loaded with veggies, about 120 calories per container and they're very easy to carry! Meanwhile I'll stay out of the chips and opt for fruit as much as possible. Drinking enough water is easy. I'm a singer. I drink lots during every rehearsal. When I'm too cold for water I go for herbal tea.

There are also these nifty 10 minute exercise videos on this site. I'm going to shoot for one of those a day at least and a walk if the weather allows. So here goes! No more gain and hopefully a tiny bit of loss.

    Sounds like a great plan, Kathryn. Way to do for taking control again. :)

Is it your lower back that's an issue? If so, you might want to concentrate on strengthening your abs. I've been having to do that as well...All that heavy lifting doesn't do much for that area, as I'm finding. :p

Woohooo! You rock!

Winter Break weight loss...

Thursday, December 23, 2010

Ok so here I am after another semester at good old SSU. I managed to get myself down to between 162 and 164 pounds. It fluctuates depending on how much I give in to the junk cravings. But I've also managed to go down a pantsize. In September I was solidly in a 14. Now I wear a 12 :)

My goal this break is to get into the 150s. That give me less than a month to lose between 5 and 7 pounds. I can do that!

  


Getting back on track...

Thursday, July 22, 2010

So I've fallen off the wagon the past week or so. I'm back today though! Started the day with a strawberry banana smoothie. I plan on a half hour walk before lunch and one before bed tonight!

  


Oh yesterday....

Thursday, July 08, 2010

I started with the best of intentions and then I went to the beach with a friend and fell prey to beach food...needless to say I blew it. But today is a new day! I started the day with my usual coffee, a strawberry smoothie (frozen berries, ff greek yogurt, and skim milk), and I have my Nalgene bottle filled with water that will be filled up at least twice if not three times today.

Feeling Good!!

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

So I've been back to using this site faithfully for about 2 weeks now and I've lost 8 pounds by doing so! Hope I can keep it up. I'm feeling really good lately. Not as many parts of me jiggle. I have energy. I like recent pictures of myself!
