Breakfast: oatmeal with a small banana and some maple agave. Lunch: homemade BBQ chicken pizza. zucchini cooked with seasoning. Dinner: veggie stir fry (zucchini, broccoli, edamame) with brown rice. Snack: BBQ popchips. Water: 3 liters. Good day :)
Would having spicy sweet potato fries alongside my stir fry be a bad idea? Because I’m seriously considering it. Damn my indecisiveness.
It’s amazing how some ibuprofen and amazing oatmeal make a bad headache go away :)
Breakfast: breakfast sandwich (english muffin, an egg, slice of turkey bacon, and a slice of cheddar cheese). At School: 3/4 ounce of cashews. an orange. a handful of grapes. Before the gym: a little carton of chocolate soy milk. After the gym: string cheese. Dinner: turkey burger on an english muffin, with cucumber and mustard. a few BBQ popchips. Snack: an apple with almond butter. Water:...
My professor just called Cindy Crawford a ‘bigger girl’. And also called Angelina Jolie ‘anorexic’. We are such a weight driven society. Who are we to make judgements on these people?
There was frost on my car this morning. I ran back and forth between my house and my car at least five times since I had no idea how to handle ice. Mini morning workout? I live ten minutes from the beach, I shouldn’t have to deal with this.
Firstly, I want to thank the three wonderful ladies who messaged me regarding my previous post about not being able to stay on track. We are all human and cannot be perfect all the time. I was reminded that this IS a community and there are people to talk to when you nee help. These are going to be my March goals, except I’m starting tomorrow instead of March 1st. No eating out, with some...
This Needs To Be Done Today:
accounting problem accounting pre-midterm print diet analysis meal plan for the week get everything ready for class tomorrow And then when that is all done, I will be doing a special post :)
Why is it so hard to get back on track? My motivation for everything is completely gone.
I kind of want to do a video when I finally hit 200 followers, which should be soon :) Basically, it would be me randomly talking and possibly answering questions about myself. So pretty much an ‘about me’ video. Are there any questions y’all would like to ask?
Breakfast: two eggs with two pieces of turkey bacon. with Cholula. Lunch: homemade BBQ chicken pizza. Dinner: open faced turkey meatball sandwich. sautéed zucchini with a sprinkle of my mom’s seasoning. Snack: a glass of chocolate soymilk. grapefruit sparkling water. Water: 3 liters.
My weekend is is going to consist of a giant deep clean of my room and doing ALL THE HOMEWORK. I’ve been slacking.
I look like a bum today. Ripped jeans and an extremely oversized flannel. I need to be on What Not to Wear or something.
I am not religious at all, but I’ve seen a lot of people still deciding to give certain things up during Lent. So I thought I’d jump on that train and give up something too. For 40 days I will give up two things. The first being chips. Chips have always been my go to binge food. I’m not the hugest fan of sweets (even chocolate), but put something salty in front of me, and...
I got the sandwich. And I don’t feel bad about it. I only ate half plus the salad it came with. I’ll have the other half with some veggies for dinner. I’m not counting calories. I’m not weighing myself. I am just improving my eating habits and how I view food. That is how I justified my choice.
Breakfast: breakfast sandwich (English muffin, an egg, 2% cheddar, turkey bacon). During class: an ounce of cashews. Kashi bar. Before gym: chocolate soy milk. After gym: grande iced green tea wit two Splendas. Dinner: Chipotle burrito bowl (brown rice, black beans, chicken, hot salsa, and lettuce). Water: 2.75 liters
I did not chop off all my hair. Even though I REALLY wanted to. I did get a trim though. And that was enough. :) I also got Chipotle for dinner since I wouldn’t have time to make dinner after showering before heading to class. Not that I ever need an excuse to get Chipotle ;)
The desire to cut off all my hair is growing. I have literally been thinking about it all day. So much so that I’m considering walking over to the salon across from the shopping center from the Starbucks I am currently at. I love my curls, but I want change! But don’t worry, I’m not making any drastic changes yet.
You know 7:30 is too early for class when you wear moccasins with your yoga pants. Not that I have any sort of fashion sense anyways.
Starting these again. Breakfast: oatmeal with half a banana and maple agave. Mid-morning/Afternoon: venti quad shot skinny vanilla latte. Late Lunch: turkey burger on an English muffin. zucchini. Evening: black cherry Chobani. four Girl Scout cookies. a Kashi bar. and a grapefruit sparkling water so I would have something to occupy my mouth :) 4 liters of water.
Even though the beginning of the weekend sucked, today was wonderful. I spent the day with my mom. Even though there are many times we don’t get along, I love being able to spend a day together and not fight. We started out by seeing The Vow. I loooooved it. We were both blubbering the entire movie, but I was very pleased by the ending. Then we went thrift store shopping, which...
This weekend sucked. I didn’t post at all, and I wanted to explain why. I let my emotions bring me down, just as I was making progress too. But I have newfound motivation. There was a moment of jealousy. I had absolutely no reason to be jealous. Jealousy is an unhealthy emotion in my opinion. We were never in a real relationship. He was using me. And I didn’t even realize it until...
I woke up screaming. I have no idea why, but it was kinda, sorta, really weird.
Apparently, I just go for the douchebags. Not on purpose obviously. I am a human being too. Do not treat me as anything less.
Posting those pictures last night made me realize that I have made progress. Yesterday, I wore very unflattering clothing to the gym. I felt as if every roll of fat could be seen from under my clothing. In reality, I highly doubt anyone cared. But I still felt extremely self conscious. I think a lot of us have problems realizing that we are not the same people we were when we started. Weight...
Going to the gym today even though I ate like crap. Usually I just say eff it, and not care. But today I’m going and will burn off some calories. I’m actually surprised that I’m keeping up with my exercise plan.
Why are you doing this?
Why are you losing weight? What’s your main motivation? What pushes you to keep going when you lose hope? It seems like an easy question. Most people would answer with something along the lines of ‘to be healthier’. And that is the truth for many of us. And that’s what I would say too. Buy there are so many other reasons why I’m doing this. Firstly, I am doing...
My mom made some zucchini and asparagus for the both of us today. I am definitely not used to her seasoning methods anymore because I literally cannot drink enough water right now. Sooo salty! I’m so glad my taste buds have changed.
I put on a pair of shoes that I haven’t worn since high school. A pair of slip on Vans to be exact. And they don’t fit anymore. They slip off every time I walk. I guess I had fat feet.
TMI TUESDAY :) →
When I wear my Vibrams, people always ask if my toes get cold. I always tell them no, because it’s never happened to me. Until I wore them on a cold day and now can’t feel my toes :( In other news, we’re having a lecture on domestic violence and unhealthy relationships today in class. Happy Valentine’s Day?
Gym for an hour. Bike/treadmill/stretching. Then I came home, made some dinner. And then made my breakfast for tomorrow, and all the food I take. Productive evening if I don’t say so myself :)
I just saw a Groupon for the half I’m doing in April for significantly less money than what I paid ._.
Most productive weekend of my life!
I literally did everything that I needed to get done. Laundry. Almost all my homework. Cleaned my room. MARATHON TRAINING SCHEDULE! Grocery shopping. Now it’s time to relax, perhaps paint my nails, and watch the Grammy’s. Have a good night y’all!
Brittany's "Get Your Life Together" Plan
I haven’t really been living life. Just going through the motions, taking life as it comes. But I want to live, and actually be present in my own life. So this is how I’m going to do it. Life is too short to not accomplish what you want to. 1. No more calorie counting. When I count calories, it’s legit. I weigh everything, no joke. It’s too tedious, time consuming, and...
Worst mood ever. I need my car back and today to be over ASAP.
