So I'm back! Life is better than ever, however much more stressful. Unfortunately, I've gotten into the habit of simply cramming food into my mouth when I'm hungry and that led to gaining most of my weight back :(
I got into PA school within the last year which was surprising and exciting! I commute 2.5 hours to school, have class, then commute 2.5 hours home. That doesn't leave a lot of time for healthy choices that are not planned out, especially when my free time has been filled with studying.
A list of ways I plan on being healthier:
Walk from the train to classes vs. catching a second train (unless super late) = 2.5 miles
Fast food- Saladworks or subway= 500 calorie savings
Lunch? Pack- PBJ versus pizza and junk= 200-500 calorie savings
Train rides- study (not sleep) So I have free time to workout (hopefully 2-3x's/week)
Long 3 hour break on wed- bring gym clothes and workout for 30 minutes
Dinner- Stockpile with healthy choice & healthy snacks= bazillion calories saved over takeout
I'm really hoping this works and STAYS with me this time. I am newly back on the singles scene and want to look awesome for any potential dates that come my way, plus, it would be nice to rock a 2 piece this year.
An additional goal I have is the Lady White Rose 5K which is held in April of every year. I love this race, it is sooo stress free! All women, all ages, all speeds. I want to get under 35 minutes this year so I'd better get to running soon!
