Nothing Gets Done Without Work
Sunday, May 27, 2012
I stepped on the scale today and noticed that I've gained close to 4 pounds in the last month. So, first and foremost I'm focusing on getting the "diet" a.k.a nutrition part of my lifestyle in check. My boyfriend has a tendency to bring home everything my sweet tooth adores-- ice cream, Oreos, Twix, etc-- and persuade me into ordering out rather than making dinner. I worked really hard in Senior Year to get down to 160 and I've very obviously let myself go over the past year. Even though I find it pretty meticulous I have decided to count calories and practice portion control again. I'm pretty certain that my rouge eating ranges anywhere from 1,900-3,000 calories per day. To cut back I'm aiming for a calorie range of 1200-1550.
I'm also working on drinking a cup of tea a day (no sweetener or cream/milk!), which of course has been the easiest part so far.
My motivation is of course the one piece of the puzzle missing. I wish I had a Fit Buddy or group of Fit Buddies who could keep me in check. Unfortunately, none of my friends are very athletically inclined. It would be great if I just had a group of friends I could go running with or hit up for a bike ride around the city.
