Weight this morning: 133.6
Goal Weight: 125
Hello world! This is officially day 1 of my life as a blogger–I’m SUPER excited! I’m going to keep it simple and in line with my purpose: what i 8 today! Now, I don’t do the whole breakfast/lunch/dinner + two snacks thing. Most days (when I’m not indulging constantly), I try to eat when my body tells me it needs fuel. Sometimes that hungry feeling starts at 10 or 11am, while other days it maybe 1 or 2pm. It really has a lot to do with how much I ate the evening before. Last night (knowing that I was going to be starting this blog and day 1 of my weight loss journey), I indulged in quite a few dried banana chips, two slices of leftover pizza, a slice of cake, and basically ate myself sick, so I wasn’t feeling hungry until much later in the day. Anyway, here goes my list, in chronological eating order, hehe:
- 20 grapes
- healthy garden salad (recipe here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/healthy-garden-salad/detail.aspx), and I added chickpeas (i.e., garbanzo beans) to the recipe, so my calorie count for a serving is a little higher than what the website says
- 1/2 a sliced green bell pepper and 2 TBSP hummus; Green Giant frozen creamed spinach (entire package)
- 1/2C black beans, a small sliced avocado, and 2TBSP medium salsa inside a 100% whole wheat tortilla
- one serving of reduced-fat cheeze-its
I also ran for about 20 minutes and then took an hour-long Body Pump class in the morning. I wear a heart rate monitor watch (thanks, mom and dad!) that also tracks the number of calories burned, which was 490 calories during those 80 minutes of exercise today.
Finally, I use myfitnesspal.com (and the iphone app–LOVE!) to track my calories each day. I’ll try to give you a snapshot of it in each post, so you can see where I ended up in my calorie count. Not too shabby today!
I’ll check back in tomorrow! 🙂
