New outlook.

Thursday, December 27, 2012

First off -- I didn't weigh myself today. I'm going to aim to NOT get on the scale every day. Seems that became a pretty serious habit of mine for awhile. And, unlike some people, I was okay with ONLY maintaining. But any day I'd find myself a pound or two heavier, I'd kind of freak out.

This time I'm aiming to focus on fitness. My actions were calculated today -- thought out and calculated. I had fresh fruit for breakfast -- not big enough, I'm sure, but healthy! I had a buffalo chicken salad for lunch, which was a surprise and extremely delicious. Then I logged into Sparkpeople from work, which is no longer a blocked website *hallelujah* and input my caloric intake. After work I went to the gym and, before getting something to eat for dinner (because JM and I have zero groceries in this house right now), I input my activities for the day, calculated my calories remaining, and chose a dinner based on what I could afford -- not only financially, but calorically!

THAT is my new outlook. Eat only what I can afford. Might sound kind of crappy, but I'm giving it a fair shot.

I'm sure I'll have more updates in the coming days.

    Yay! More updates! I don't have a dieting plan yet because I already know what's good and what's not, so I'm just trying to be more mindful of the choices I'm making.

Good luck to you :)
