End of Day one… Almost.

11 Jan

So my eats are over for the day.  This will be the hardest part for me… I always do so well during the day, then when I’m relaxing and watching TV  I start munching and don’t stop.   So now the kitchen is closed!   Food for today is as follows… (soon I will be adding pictures, I’m still new at this lol)

 Breakfast: a clementine, and a chicken burger patty (weird I know, it was one of those mornings where I didn’t want breakfast food!)  180 calories

Lunch: Carrots, Broccoli and hummus, tuna with a spoonful of greek yogurt, and Special K crackers –  290

Snack:  Fresh Mozz Stick (They’re from Trader Joe’s and they’re amazing! They look like string cheese but they’re fresh Mozz) 70 calories

Dinner:  Trader Joe’s potstickers,  spinach salad with veggies, 330 calories

Dessert:  Small banana dusted with unsweetened cocoa powder 90 calories

As I add this up I’m realizing that’s only 960 calories for the day… I was trying to stay at 1200… so maybe if I get hungry later I’ll have an apple or some cottage cheese.   But I’m not hungry at all, and I’m just trying to get use to eating better.  It’s crazy how much better you feel when you eat healthier foods as opposed to Red Robin, heavy chinese food, McDonalds, etc.  I mean my eating isn’t perfect by any means, I know I’m not getting enough fruits and veggies but I’m just getting back into the swing of things!  When I lost weight previously, I did exactly this, minus the working out and I still lost weight at a steady pace.  So I just got to stick to it.  I’m excited!!  

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing my weight loss goals, rewards, and other goals for the year… And I know at this point I’m blogging to no one, but it’s nice to document it all. =)

EDIT: Just had some Ovaltine and a 100 cal pack of popcorn!

Today’s the first day of my tracking and working out and I’m excited about it.  I’ll be off work in an hour, and I’m going straight to the gym.  This summer I was reallllly into it and I was going 5 days a week, no problem.  I’ve gone sporatically since then, but it’s sooo hard going back.  Once I’m there I’m fine, it’s just the getting there.  But isn’t it always?

This weekend I did all my healthy grocery shopping.  I went to Costco, Trader Joes, and Safeway.  Short post, but I’ll be back later today…

First post ever!

Just another weight loss blog…

A girl livin in the PNW… I love sports, and fashion and boys.  Oh and obviously food, or I wouldn’t be here right?

I’ve successfully lost 45 pounds… but I’ve been stuck losing the same 5 pounds for the past year.  It’s time to kick it up a notch.

I read weight loss blogs daily, and if you have one, chances are I’ve read it and it’s in my favorites. (I’m talkin to you, JewliaGoulia, tj’s test kitchen, fatbridesmaid, token fat girl, opposite of thin, ZenLizzi, Brooke not on a diet… just to name a few=)

My current weight is 226.  I’m 5′ 7″… my goal weight right now is 160… (secretly its 135 but we’ll see what I look like and how I feel at 160)

So even though I’ve lost 45 pounds, I’ve still got a ways to go.  This blog will help me hold myself accountable and hopefully interact with other people in the same position as me.  You can only read other blogs for so long before you ask yourself, why not me?  I have goals and weigh ins like everyone else but I just don’t know how to use this website very well yet, so once I get better, it will be more interesting, I promise!

Thank you guys for reading my new blog, and I can’t wait to start this journey to a happier healthier me! Shit, I’m corny.
