1. What a busy weekend… Holidays are usually STRESSFUL for me, not relaxing! Oh the joy of working in a restaurant! So I did not take my usual cheat day on thursday or friday like I normally do because 1) I just wasn’t feeling it and 2) I knew Easter was right around the corner so I waited. Well, today I ate like a pig and let’s just say I DID NOT FEEL GOOD! I honestly would have rather just ate healthy all day because I wasn’t into it. I don’t know what’s up with me but I’m so into clean eating and working out lately… I’m not gonna complain though, I love this feeling. So motivated, it’s great!

    So here’s what I ate today:

    B- puffin’s cereal with lowfat milk
    L- omelette with turkey sausage and mozzarella cheese
    S- TONNNSSSSS of chocolate and a few jelly beans
    D- porkloin, green beans, scalloped potatoes, and pineapple bread pudding (had two helpings of potatoes and pineapple bread pudding)

    I did not get to work out unfortunately because I had to work all day then come home and write a four page paper that was due at midnight. That I hadn’t even started yet. But I managed to finish it on time somehow!

    By the way… I bought this cute pocket pedometer so I can start tracking my steps and I LOVE it. I set my “goal” at 10,000 steps each day. Today at work I walked over 7,500 steps between 12 and 3 pm. I ran my booty off today! Easter is a busy day at the restaurant for sure.

     

  2. I think my new goal in life is to become a fitness model!

    Not to sound cocky, but all my life people have asked me why I’ve never modeled before. Truthfully, I’m not that confident and feel like I’d come across as conceited if I decided to try modeling.

    But fitness modeling I feel is different…it sounds exciting! I obviously would need to get my body into REALLY good shape for that but I’m willing to try. If it never happens… then oh well, but I think it’s a fun goal!

    :)

  6. Helllo! Been feeling excellent today despite my less than 5 hours of sleep last night. Today’s eats have been great and I got to the gym. And now I’m getting my homework done! Yesss

    omg just realized I ate two salads today…oh well, can’t go wrong with veggies right? Anyways, worked out my upper body tonight but no cardio. My legs need to recover!!

     

  7. Today’s intake!

    B- smoothie with acai, blueberries, apple juice, vanilla protein powder
    S- wheat thins (post run)

    S- cookies & cream Quest bar

    Like I said before, I ran 3.15 miles with my dad today and I feel great (despite the fact that I feel huge today). Every once in a while I just have a random day where I feel like the fattest person ever but I try to remind myself that it’s all in my head and that I’m actually quite ‘normal’. I usually feel much better the next day anyways!

     

  8. So remember the other day when I said I had to start working out more frequently?

    Thursday- squats, lunges, and push ups with a run around the track in between each set
    Friday- three mile run
    Saturday - “rest” day but I ran around at work for 13 hours straight so…
    Sunday (today) - three mile run

    Tomorrow I’m either going to take a rest day depending on how much homework I have, or I’ll go to the gym and do upper body. NO lower body, my legs are aching they’re so sore!

  10. Haven’t had a good salad in a while… so I just DEVOURED one.

    Eats so far today…

    B- chobani peach pistachio yogurt + a handful raw cashews + green tea
    L- huge salad with spinach, peppers, broccoli, egg whites, carrots, and pepperoni in light honey mustard dressing + whole grain roll
    S- (post workout) almonds, chocolate milk, wheat thins with veggie dip
    D- I’m gonna surprise my bf with thai fooood! so I’ll be having hot & sour veggie soup and chicken curry with brown rice eeee my fav

    This weather makes me SO motivated. It’s like 70 degrees here and all I wanna do is workout. I love this feeling. It’s amazing how much better I feel in weather like this compared to winter. I’ve already gone for a bike ride, taken my dog for a walk, and sat out in the sun for 30+ minutes. When my dad comes home from his appointment we are gonna go for a run on the track… probably will run around 2.5 or 3 miles. Yay!

    Update: Ran 3 miles with dad! woohoo
