So I always have the mentality of doing things with an intensity that you can carry on for the rest of your life... because of that I guess I don't really notice a lot of the changes that happen with my body that don't show up on the scale or my jeans. After all changing your lifestyle is what this is all about right?
One of the biggest things that has changed is what I eat. It just amazes me and will probably amaze you too. So this is list of things that I honestly NEVER even tried until 2 years ago.. imagine what i ate on a daily basis without these foods.'
- salad (i would seriously gag...)
- ground turkey
- any nuts
- unmarinated grilled chicken
- any vegetable for that matter.. not even canned corn
- green tea
ok.. so the list isn't that big. maybe this list is better. this is what i ONLY ate until 2 years ago:
- mac n' cheese from a box
- tv dinners (SmartOnes)
- lean pockets
- chicken nuggets
- canned peaches or canned mandarin oranges
- fast food for 3-5 meals/week..
- a candy bar every day
- bottle of soda every day
i honestly ate like a 5 year old.. the 5 food groups i called them: chicken nuggets, spaghetti, pizza, mac n' cheese, and burgers. that was either lunch or dinner every day. if i added fruit, it was from a can. veggies were non-existent. and i wouldn't dare try something out of those familiars. i try new things at least once a month now. it doesn't really phase me anymore. i guess that's a lifestyle change... i need to take this approach to water. i still can't drink more than 4 glasses of water a day. it's something i have to consciously think about.
i'm glad i didn't gain any weight in boston but it's also frustrating because i haven't lost anything being home and training every day, keeping track of everything i eat and constantly scrutinizing and planning meals. i almost want to just not care anymore.
i'm starting to become complacent in my weight.. really questioning if its even possible for my body to get below 140.
