I'm upstairs away from the din of the New Year's Day party going downstairs with my family on my dad's side. Today, I ate to the point where I threw up majorly...not on purpose, but because I ate too much. Sad...and a little pathetic.
The good thing is that I can now restart Ripped in 30 (the Jillian Michaels workout DVD) again tomorrow, and I have all the following days to be better to myself in all meanings of the phrase.
The bad part is that I may or not be sore for a weeks since I haven't done it in awhile, and there may be leftovers from this crazy party tomorrow and for a few more weeks after that (leftovers: spaghetti and meatballs, california rolls, pot roast, Filipino pansit, lumpia, and more). The funny thing is my mom looked at the table of food before the party started and said, "I don't think we made enough food!" That's a typical Filipino mom for you!
I'm trying to think of all the possible ways I could avoid eating all the leftovers. I think that if I put all my meals in tupperware (salads, Greek yogurt, poached chicken) and write down/keep track of my meals, I will be able to keep to eating clean again.
There are some things I did that helped me get down to 119 lbs...I'm currently 126 lbs.
1.) Have a regular sleep schedule: Sleep at 10 pm and wake up at 5 am.
2.) Eat until I'm 80% full: satiated but still comfortable
3.) Chew food slowly and completely...it's so hard to remember this one
4.) Don't weigh myself everyday: water weight!
5.) Eat 5 small meals a day
I'm going to make things happen for myself. But I have to take a more educated approach and really know what I want for the new year. Here's to our health!
