Yesterday was awesome! I actually stayed within my calorie limit, and met my goals for nutrients, except for fat (I went over), but it was 95% good fat. I went over because of my favorite Cherry Vanilla Dream trail mix. Only 1/4 cup has a boat load of fats because of the nuts. I'm not as concerned about the fats as I am about the carbs, and I did well with those. I'm trying to stick to the lower end of the recommendation, because of the type of body fat I have. Dr. Oz suggests that people with a big midsection should lower their carbs and and not their fat. Emphasis on LOWER. He's not talking about anything like Atkins. He insists that we still need carbs but they need to be good carbs and not as much. Also, my stomach didn't growl at all yesterday with the schedule. I had to adjust a little because I forgot to eat! I'm excited. I think this is my breakthrough.
Today I'm going to do the schedule again. I am also going to the gym later, or maybe I'll do some jump roping. I still have lots to do around the house, getting ready to move to Cali, and I'm feeling a little anxious about it. I know exercise will make me feel better, but I want to stay home so I don't put off getting things done. I have until the end of the month to have everything sold, moved, cleaned, etc. But I want to be ahead of the game. I put my living room and bedroom furniture up for sale on craigslist and the pennysaver. So far no hits. I also shared it with my friends on facebook. We'll see what happens.
I booked my flight. It was very strange making it a one-way ticket. This is really happening. I'm flying to the West Coast 2 days early so I can take in a few sites of San Francisco before I head to campus. I hate that I'll be alone, but I'm going to enjoy it. It's funny because I'm only considering hotels that have decent fitness centers lol. That's a first.
