So far I have only been at this for two full weeks. In this time I have basically eaten with a perfect record. I did have two bean burritos from Taco Bell on Friday. I thought, what damage could that really do.. Well, let me tell you. That is 740 calories!!!! That floored me. I thought it was a fairly healthy choice. Nope..nope nope nope. As a matter of fact after a quick view of the nutrition info for Taco Bell it is pretty much all terrible. I have cut out fast food except for that one learning experience. This is a huge accomplishment being that I have pretty much had fast food for EVERY meal for the last 9 months. I have also cut out soda. And last, but not least, I have stopped eating ice cream. I am a binge ice cream eater and sit at home like a crack addict thinking I should just go get some. Then telling myself no, I don't need it. Then getting up to go get some, and sitting back down telling myself no. This pattern goes on for a while but I have not gone to get any as of yet. I may never be able to allow myself to eat it again. Floodgates... not a chance I want to take yet.
I have been doing good on my fitness too. I am doing the 6 week walking program with Leslie Sansone. It is great. I can work out at home or I can walk outside. I bought a pedometer. Pretty cool little gadget. I find myself hating my workouts still. I am not sure I will ever love it, but I am dedicated to it.
So, with the first 2 weeks down, good eating and consistent exercise...I have... (drum roll please) (okay that made me think of cinnamon rolls..I still have issues to master lol) .... lost 10 pounds already. I need to take a photo so I can start measuring the physical changes better. :)
