First SparkPeople blog and first blog of the year.
It seems that when I go home I lose all sense of self-control when it comes to food. It's actually easier for me to lose weight at school than it is to do it at home. It makes sense for several reasons. One, the kitchen is RIGHT there as opposed to down 8 floors and halfway across campus. Two, I can find anything in that kitchen when it feeds 4 other people. When on campus, I eat what I buy. Not a whole lot there considering I'm in college and broke. I don't starve myself either. When I'm on campus, I plan out my meals and buy what I need. Nothing more, can't afford it.
Poor excuses, I know. It's just that when I go home, this sense of lethargy and a general need to just lay around all day comes over me and before I know it, I didn't exercise or drink 8 glasses of water. Crap. SO. My New Years Resolution isn't to lose weight. It's to gain some freakin' self control. Which leads to weight loss generally, but it'll help me out in other aspects of my life as well. Yay for me!
So I fell off the SparkPeople bandwagon but I'm hopping right back on! I'm going to the gym today, had oatmeal and a orange for breakfast, and already had my first bottle of water and it's only 9 am. And I logged everything. I'm on the right track. Here's hoping I stay there.
