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 :)
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:
What are YOUR goals for the end of the year?
I just reblogged some articles about undereating which sometimes I think may be my problem.
But how do I eat more when I’m already full? Should I start eating smaller meals? Someone help?!
I’ve really been bad the past few weeks. I’m so ashamed. I couldn’t even run outside for a whole week because of Hurricane Sandy and didn’t even try to make up workouts in the gym or at home. I’ve been eating crap and my body can feel it. I’ve also been eating less often and very little in general. It’s been a bad past couple weeks.
But today I went to weigh-in anyway. I’m down 1.2 lbs this week for a total of 37.2 lbs. Another 2.8 lbs by 11/19 and I’ll reach my 40 lbs. goal.
I have a little over 2 weeks until my goal date.
2 1/2 weeks until my first 5k ever!
And just 1 week left in the C25K Program!
I just need to keep getting on here for some inspiration and motivation because it really does help. I know I have all of the Fitblrs support.
I can do this.
Going out to dinner last night and out to breakfast this morning was NOT good. I made terrible choices and I felt like crap afterwards. My stomach was not very happy with me.
Yesterday I went over by about 1,000 calories and today I’m already over by about 300. I’m so upset with myself that I didn’t even weigh-in this morning before we went out. I’m going to weigh myself either Wednesday or Friday. I just didn’t want to face what I did to myself. I know, the results could have been fine but I just didn’t want to ruin my good mood about last week’s progress.
I’m making a promise now that I need to make up for these two meals for the next few days. And I will. My boyfriend will be here on Friday and I want to look my best.
Until then, I’ll be drowning myself in water and making sure my workouts come close to killing me.
My dad and step-mom are coming to visit me at school. We’re probably going out to dinner tonight and going out to breakfast tomorrow morning. Which means I would miss swimming tonight and running tomorrow morning. Usually I take off from working out on Saturdays and Sundays while I workout the other 5 days of the week. So I decided to start Week 5 of C25K this morning instead. Running is starting to get easier and easier :) Week 5 is going to be really hard though but I’m going to get it done no matter what!
Hey! Guess what! TOMORROW IS OCTOBER! That’s right, it’s a new month AND a new week. If you feel like you haven’t been doing so well the last couple weeks, start fresh tomorrow. Take advantage of this.
Goals for October:
WHAT ARE YOU HOPING TO ACCOMPLISH FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER?
