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!
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.
So I just got back from a “date” with this guy who i’m really iffy about. On one hand, I know he really likes me, and he’s tried to kiss me multiple times. He’s really smart, pretty decent looking, respectful, etc. Pretty much, he looks really good on paper. Also, we had some pretty good chemistry goin on before, but now I’m thinking that’s only because I was being flirty with him. he’s really nice to me but also kinda a douchebag without really knowing it. As in, he’s always like, what can i do to make more girls like me etc, and I really have no answer for him. I mean, that’s kinda a turn off saying that you basically have no game. Ugh just so frustrated because now I basically have zero feelings for him but don’t really know how to tell him…why is it that all the guys who like me I could care less for? Why don’t I just have the guts to be initiative with a guy I’m crushing on. This is seriously why I will be #foreveralone. Okay, rant over.
So there’s this annual underwear run at my school, and I really wanna look good for it! I did really well last week in terms of working out and eating clean, but the weekends are def. my downfall. This weekend, I ate waay too much chocolate and chips :( and I’m sad to say this morning I got a little junky as well. I guess I just had to get it outta my system, lol! But seriously, clean eats from now on. I may get off track sometimes, but it’s getting back into the swing of things that’s really important! I’m gonna stash the chocolate for awhile, lay off the chips, and focus on REAL food- veggies, fruit, whole grains, lean meats, tofu, etc! Oh, and lots of water!
guys, legit found the yummiest snack EVER. Roasted. Coconut. Chips. If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, please run over and grab these. I literally died when these entered in my mouth, and I almost downed the entire bag, no joke. Also, besides the amount of fat in it (no biggie, really) the nutritional stats are not bad :D
So college life is hectic. I have a full schedule, and on top of that I have homework, clubs, socializing, etc. So my eats have been all over the place. I always start my days now with a couple of boiled egg whites with soy sauce. Then I’ll eat some fruit and yogurt and down some much needed coffee. Lunch is usually a “let’s see what’s in the fridge” kinda deal. The past few days I’ve eaten a salad I prepped a couple days before (black beans, avocado, tomato, cucumbers, ginger sauce, salt, spices), which was really good because whenever I got hungry I just ate some salad! I also bought spaghetti squash and some spaghetti sauce to make my oh so yummy SPAGHETTI SQUASH DISH, except I used some homemade mini turkey meat balls in place of the ground turkey. Super delish, and I have leftover spaghetti squash that I can just heat up with some pasta sauce and call it a snack :) Speaking of snacks, I’ve been loving hummus and carrots recently. So healthy and yummy! I go for the Garlic Lovers Hummus by Cedars (I think) because I love garlic! As for dinner, I’ve been making stir fries and use bulgur as my grain! So I guess I’ve been doing pretty well, as I’ve only eaten out at most 3-4 times. Anywhoo maybe I’ll do a What I Ate Wednesday post tomorrow!
Exercise wise, I’ve been doing really well, and I’m super consistent with my workouts so far! Also, I think I need to eat more during the day, because I tend to eat a crapload of food at the end of the day, even if it’s all healthy. Ex: Today at night I had a huge stir fry dish of eggs, edamame, onions, and bulgur. Then I ate a serving of TJ’s Meatless Meatballs (6 Meatballs!). Then I ate a kiwi and a bowl of strawberries. Then probably like 4 servings of almonds (I’m seriously addicted). Oh yeah and 1/2 of a sweet potato! Yes, my appetite is endless…
I ate a bit too much beforehand, so it didn’t feel like the best workout I’ve ever had, but I pulled through.
Afterwards I started to do a circuit workout, but had to stop midway through because my stomach was majorly cramping. Helloo TOM [a little too tmi?] lol. But in case you’re interested, here was the circuit, found HERE:
