So I kind of gave up for a little while because I felt like I was working hard with no results. But I am back because I miss having the energy I felt when healthier and since I now have a job (YAY!) I need all the energy I can get when at home.
Last week, I put what I was eating into sparkpeople, and for the most part I only need to cut out 100-200 calories a day to be within my range. I have been eating more fruits and vegetables lately, which make me feel better and I want to continue with that.
Basically, we need to stop going out. My parents were here this weekend, so it was a special weekend, but we went out for 3 meals in 3 days. Too much. Then I went out last night (but went to Panera and ate less than 500 calories) AND we are going out tonight with husband's parents (planning on soup and salad). Oy.
So this weekend will be cooking, cooking, cooking! I am trying to find some great crock-pot recipes. They are so yummy and make a lot of leftovers...always helpful to have some variety for lunch during the week!
On the fitness front, we are trying to transfer our current gym membership to another couple. Our gym is 20 minutes away. I picked it because it had a pool. When I wasn't working in the city, it worked well even though it was far. ..but now that I get home at 6:30 at the earliest, not so much. We have a gym 5 minutes from home, so once we transfer our membership, we will join the new one. Then the plan is 4 times a week.
Hoping that this new inspiration will stick. I kind of want to join Weight Watchers because I know a lot of people that have had success and it, like Sparkpeople, is about changing lifestyle. I just don't know if it would be worth it!
