So I decided tomorrow night I am going to allow myself a cheat meal of wings from a place on campus. I already looked on the website and figured out all the nutritional info and logged it to MyFitnessPal. I also planned out my breakfast and will plan out the rest of my meals to make sure I still don’t go way over my goal. Even though it’s a cheat meal, I still want to stay in a safe range for the whole day.
Plus I’m planning on going for my long run tomorrow morning. I’m aiming for 5.5 miles with a few intervals probably. Ahhhh! I can’t believe how far I’ve come :)
Tips for cheat meals:
- Plan ahead! I’m starting this new thing where I write on my calendar a day that I will allow myself a cheat meal ONLY if I think I’ve done well enough to deserve it. This is usually after 1 1/2 - 2 weeks of a good workout routine and healthy eating.
- Look up nutritional info! If you’re planning on going out with friends or family or to a party, look up the nutrition info first and plan out what is the best choice so you can both enjoy your time while not getting too out of control.
Like I said, I already planned out what I’m eating tomorrow before I have my cheat meal so I am less likely to eat bad the whole day. We all know how it is when you eat one bad thing, it’s sometimes just a spiral effect. Be careful and enjoy that cheat meal! Work it off and continue on with your progress. No worries :)
It’s a new month and I’m ready to KILL IT!
Here are my goals for the month!
I realize these are a lot but I need to make this month count!
I’m feeling so positive about March!
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS THIS MONTH?
and already feeling SO much better about myself! It’s my third day back to eating healthy and working out and I already feel amazing. I can tell my energy is back up, my skin is a little bit brighter, and just all around feel more confident about myself.
I’m going to be back on track in no time! I’m still working on controlling my temptations a bit but if I keep my mind strong, I’ll be okay.
See what this lifestyle can do for you?! Just in these past few days I feel amazing again. What’s stopping you?!
So I need to rant a bit and talk about my feelings. But that’s what you guys are here for right?
Well today I worked out for the first time in a few weeks. It was horrible. I could barely do anything and my strength is definitely at one of it’s lowest since I started this whole journey.
But you know what this taught me?! That I NEVER EVER want to go off track like I did over Winter break and over the last couple weeks. I don’t want to make any excuses but I have cursed with my annual seasonal depression. I’ve been sitting in my room for days only to leave to get food (which definitely weren’t good choices) and to use the bathroom.
I am glad I made myself go to the gym this morning. Even though it was really hard and I could barely do anything, I still went. That helped motivate me a little bit and I’m ready to get back on track. For real this time.
I broke down and weighed myself at the gym to see I’ve gained about 5-7lbs over the last 2 months. I’m trying to be okay with that and not get completely discouraged. It should be easy to drop once I get back into my routine and detox with tea and water.
My boyfriend is coming to visit on Thursday to celebrate Valentine’s Day and our 11 month anniversary. I’m worried I’ll start eating unhealthy again because who doesn’t like to cheat a little bit on their diet to go out with their boyfriend every now and then? ;) Plus it’s Valentine’s Day which means CHOCOLATE and lots of it. My ultimate downfall. But I’m going to be strong and talk to my boyfriend and ask him to really help me through the rest of the semester.
I’m going to go on a little bit of a detox within the next couple days and eat as light as possible. I’m going to be drinking a lot of tea and a lot of fruit/green smoothies.
I feel like I’ve gone on too long now so I’ll stop myself. Bye :)
First couple days of classes have gone well. I’ve been eating okay. My roommate and I really stuck to buying healthier options at the grocery store when we moved in. I made an awesome (somewhat healthier) alternative to trail mix so we’ve been munching on that like crazy.
I haven’t gotten back into a workout routine yet unfortunately. The weather here at school is absolutely killing my mood and motivation. I don’t even want to think about it. I just need to get out and run and I know I’ll find my motivation again.
I’m still reading Tosca Reno’s “The Eat-Clean Diet” in hopes I can educate myself more about clean eating.
Let’s cross our fingers for some beautiful pre-Spring weather!
So I just had this great idea of coming up with a few challenges for myself over Winter Break to keep myself on track over the holidays.
Let’s get all college fitblrs on this and start #WinterBreakChallenge of anything YOU want!
Who’s with me?
Here are my December goals:
