So how did everyone do with the Self Love Challenge #1??? Keep it up! If you had a tough time, that’s ok! Change takes a little while, so keep working on it. 🙂
I finally got an antibiotic, so hopefully I’ll be feeling better before I head home next weekend!!! Yes NEXT WEEKEND!!! I can’t wait. I miss my family and my home soooo much.
Not only did I take my antibiotic…I took my vitamins like a champ and ate very well!
Breakfast consisted of a lot of coffee, and an amazing peanut butter toast, topped with banana and raisins. So many of my favorite things. Also, if you’re looking for a new bread selection from the supermarket, I recommend Nature’s Pride. My favorite is the Nutty Oat.
I taught cycling tonight also! I love my group of girls, they really help energize me after long draining days in grad school.
Made a yummy healthy salad with romaine, cherry tomatoes, and yellow bell pepper. Followed by……
MORE ACORN SQUASH!!!! Oh how I love acorn squash. I need to go to the farmer’s market and get more ASAP because I’m all out 😦 .
Now it’s off to watch the Biggest Loser!!
^one of my favorite contestants!
Jillian and Bob went over healthy weight loss with the contestants tonight. Some of the main points:
- You NEED to eat for weight loss.
- It’s all about calories in vs. calories out – so eat well but make sure you take in less than you expend (don’t go below 1200 calories a day and try not to go above a 1000 calorie deficit. Your body may go into a starvation mode, which will inhibit your weight loss)
- Make your choices lean and green. Make your meat choices lean: lean chicken, lean turkey, sirloin, lean pork. And choose lots of vegetables and fruits.
- Eat whole foods. The less processing the better.
I’m glad that Bob and Jillian are advocating healthy choices such as these. At least they aren’t buying into the media and promoting different fad diets (ie: Zone, Atkins, South Beach).
Have a wonderful evening everyone!
Charlie has been very active lately. I have a feeling that the toy I got him had catnip in it. Need to read the label!!!! Till next time, I have a crazy kitty 🙂
