What's shakin'?


Thursday, May 31, 2012

Well, it's been a weird couple of weeks. I alluded to some family drama about a week or so ago, and since then I actually went on a mini-vacation with them. It was just me, my sister, and my mom and dad.

It was a great trip.

My sister and brothers and I want to have a big old sit down talk with our parents, but the vacation made me feel a little more at ease about airing out all of our issues. So that's good.

Other updates - I've been keeping up with the Couch to 5K plan and that's been going really well! I feel great and I'm loving the challenge.

I'm not tracking my food as of late. I'm trying to rely on what I know (and have known for years now) about eating right and making good decisions. I HAVE IT IN ME TO EAT RIGHT. I'm not going to track food for the rest of my life -- it makes me just a little crazy. I do, however, need some structure and guidelines, so I'm working on typing up a list of those.

I went completely off sugar for about a year -- but recently I've been indulging occasionally. And that's awesome -- I'm proud of myself for being able to enjoy dessert OCCASIONALLY, and knowing that it doesn't have to turn into a binge.

These past few months have involved a LOT of soul searching for me - I'm slowly figuring out what it means to be Rachel and uncovering that awesomeness. Some of it is frustrating...but it's all worth it.

    tracking food is hard to do all the time especially if you aren't home. try counting portion sizes of carbs, proteins, dairy, fats, fruits, and veggies. I think with an 1700 calorie a day diet, its 6 servings of carbs, 4 servings of protein, 4-6 servings of fruits and vegetables, 3 fats, and 3 dairy, but I am not 100% accurate on that. I used to see a nutritionist a few years back, and instead of counting calories, she would have me count portion sizes. It actually worked for me.
