30 day shred.
I’ve been lamenting the fact that I cant afford a gym membership….and then i decided, rather than sit and think about that, I could find ways to workout at home. So….I bought Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred.
Hopefully this will kick my ass and really get things moving.
Back to business…
The holiday weekend kicked my ass…BUT less so than it normally would have.
Packed my slimfast and healthy snacks. Ended up at a buffet with my family but really limited myself and actually stated with a salad.
So basically, I enjoyed myself but was much more responsible and aware than i ever would have been prior.
I consider it a win. Back on track today and happy about it…felt gross yesterday after eating so heavy.
Hotel breakfast. Making it work!
11:30…four saltines and some cheese.
Buying apples tomorrow.
Also I realize none of this sounds diety or technical but trust…I am eating much less especially much less sugar.
A little bit better today!
Noon: Slimfast shake
2:30: Ranch flavored rice crisps (70 calories per serving of 10 as part of my 3 snacks per day.)
5:00 chicken wings and tostones (platanos or green bananas…starchy. Dinner is going to be the toughest part. going to need to buy lettuce to incorporate salad into my meals where my family will not…but I did have a normal portion size and
7:30 peanut butter crunch slimfast snake
9:30 rice crisps (10)
Now….it’s 11:23 and I really want to snack but I am going to try and avoid it as I am going to bed in a half hour.
I should also say that I have alot of tea…I have large containers of brewed tea which I drink sugarless and cold throughout the day, as well as alot of water.
Tomorrow my family is off to an amusement park for memorial day vaykay. going to plan ahead and bring some healthier snacks!
Wishing myself luck.
And another one…
Back on my mission to change my life/lifestyle and drop some lbs. Mostly, I’m just tired of being/feeling tired and heavy and not myself.
I have gained a good amount of weight in the last two years on top of the weight I already had to lose. I don’t have access to a scale (which may be for the best), so I’m relying on my body to tell me what’s up.
Slimfast is my plan of choice for a few reasons:
1) I have had prior success on slimfast.
2) I am not a planner and tend to eat whatever is at hand/easiest/cheapest.
3) The shakes are ready to go and require little to no prep on my part.
4)It’s on sale this week!
I started yesterday and plan to use this as a food journal/sound board/ place to bitch.
Noon: Slimfast Milk Chocolate Shake
2:30: Slimfast peanut butter crunch bar (not so much out of hunger but because I really wanted to try it…I really need to get some willpower)
5:15: Dinner Shrimp Fettucine
Alfredo (small portion)
9:00 STARVATION headache (I have been eating a lot as of late so the reduced calories really messed with me right away.)
10:00 Two Saltines (trying to stop the headache, boredom, sitting in a kitchen full of snacks.)
12:30 A spoonful of nutella (I was really proud at having reduced my calories and followed my diet so well but my headache was killing me and I made the mistake of watching the Food Network. Also, I live with family and don’t have control over what foods get purchased or how the fridge is stocked. We all have a notorious sweet tooth and basically have every type of delicious snack you can think of……sigh)
I know it’s typically two shakes, three snacks and one meal per day but I wake up mid afternoon so I figure I am just cutting out the breakfast shake.
