I cannot change yesterday, but I can change today.

I found this gem of a quote on Pinterest, and it really resounds with me. Yesterday, I ate a lot. In fact, way more than I needed to. Let’s just say lunch turned into a rampage of meals rather than a solitary, square one. But that is the past and there is nothing I can do about it. Today started out well and normal- hardboiled egg whites and sirrachia, nonfat greek yogurt with a banana and mixed frozen berries, and a small cup of coffee with 2% milk and Splenda. My mom (out of the goodness of her little heart) packed me a healthy cucumber, tomato, avocado, turkey, and sirrachia salad with some leftover vegetables (probably with some sort of meat/tofu cooked in) on the side for lunch. She also packed me a sweet potato and steamed kabocha squash. Hopefully this will tide me over until dinner so that no excessive snacking will take place. Then for dinner I plan on a balanced meal of veggies, protein, and a small portion of complex carbs. Here’s to one step closer to a healthier body and mindset.

Gettin dat sweat on ;p
just waking up to the day (late start due to my insomniac ways) but this is a nice way to start the day <3 probably going to have some fruit, yogurt, and nuts and drink some tea or coffee!

This is so much more refreshing than those infamous words “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” said by Kate Moss.
Food is not the enemy. :) The sooner everyone realizes this the better off we’ll be.

December Goals
1. Eat Clean. I want to try to cut out all of the unprocessed junk food and try to eat only whole foods this month! This means more cooking this month!
2. Get at least 7 hours of sleep every night. With finals coming up, we’ll see if I can do this, but definitely getting more sleep makes me a more productive, happy, and healthy person!
3. Eat less sugar. This is a hard one, but sugar can really be addictive sometimes. For December I think I’m going to stick with natural sugars from fruits and that’s about it.
4. Stop snacking so much. Even though there are contrasting views on snacking (i.e. some say that snacking throughout the day is better for your metabolism versus others who say that it is better to have set meals planned) I feel like it is better for me when I have 3 meals because whenever I snack I usually snack on junk.
5. Eat until I am 2/3 full. I hate the feeling of feeling so full you cannot move. I actually am more satisfied with the food I eat if I do not eat a ton of it. But sometimes gluttony can get the best of us, which is why I’m going to try to eat only until I am satisfied.
6. Eat slower. I am definitely one of those people that scarfs down their meals no matter how hungry or not I am. Not the best of habits, but it’s never to late to make a change!
7. Be more active. That doesn’t necessarily mean working out every single day, which would be ideal, but right now time doesn’t allow for that. I mean move around even when I feel lazy, or just do little things to make myself more active.
8. Ace my finals! This one is a big one this month, as my first final is in 8 days and the rest are in 12 days! Gotta get a move onnn.
9. Don’t eat so close to bed time. Again, this is a controversial topic, as some say it doesn’t matter whether or not you eat right before you go to sleep; it is the overall amount of daily caloric intake that affects weight gain. But for me personally, I hate the feeling of waking up in the morning right after eating really close to bed time. I get indigestion, bloating, and I just feel crappy.
10. Eat intuitively. When I am hungry, I should eat, when I am not hungry I will not eat. Sometimes it’s hard for me to eat intuitively just because a lot of times stress and other emotions get in the way, and I use eating as a coping mechanism. But I really want to change that this month.

A Healthy Pact

Hey guys, so I wrote this [partially as a joke, mostly serious] for me and my friend. Whenever we are together, all we want to do is eat junk [and lots of it!], and that is basically what we did tonight. I always end of feeling gross and like I wasted a bunch of time. Enjoy!

Pact:

I, FILL IN YOUR NAME HERE, solemnly swear that I will eat clean and exercise from today, November 26, 2012 on. I will eat 3 square meals and with small snacks in between if necessary. I will not “restaurant hop” unless it is a SERIOUS SPECIAL OCCASION. I will stop buying crappy food from Wollaston’s, which, by the way, is also expensive. I will cook for myself as much as I can, and when time does not permit, I will try to eat the healthiest I can. I will give into cravings when necessary, but I will MODERATE the amount I have. I will try to get at least 30 minutes of exercise every day, even if it means dancing in the shower [but try not to slip and fall or else you will become a vegetable…]. I will try to remember to drink lots of water and get an adequate amount of sleep. I will keep busy by being productive, which will keep my mind off of eating unnecessarily. When the desire strikes to eat when not hungry, I will do something FUN [insert fun ideas here]. I will eat well, sleep well, exercise well, and overall FEEL GREAT.

Signed,

INSERT NAME HERE.
