Yay! I’ve been told a million times that I should be eating quinoa because it’s perfect for my strict vegetarian diet & I’m finally cooking some! Super excited to try it!!
Also, i went down another pound on the scale the other day too! :)
So, I worked pretty much all weekend and I didn’t have a chance to blog everything I did/ate, but I still did pretty well. I don’t remember all of the specifics of what I ate, but I definitely stayed under my calorie goal all 3 days. It was pretty busy at work too, so I’m sure that I torched some calories serving tables for a total of 19 hours over the weekend.
Also, I weighed myself at my friend’s house last night, and the scale said 138.6!! (That means I lost about 10 pounds!) I’m really hoping her scale is accurate, because if it is, that’s great!! I’m really starting to see/feel tone in my muscles too! When I move my arms, I can see them flex & I keep finding myself touching my thighs, because they’re no longer made of flab. There’s still a little bit of fat there, but I can feel my muscles when I touch my legs now, without even having to flex them and that’s awesome!
I’m really happy that I’m losing weight and gaining muscle at the same time. If you’re wondering what I’m doing to do this, I’m weight training 3 days a week and doing cardio 3-5 days a week. Weight training is key. Don’t just do cardio without weights, I tried that for a while and didn’t see any results. Also, I’ve been sticking to my raw vegetarian diet, eating mostly fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains. However, I’m not restricting my diet 100% from junk/treats, because that usually results in binges for me, from not having that stuff for a long time. Instead, I give in every now and then and have a little bit when I get a craving.
Anyways, I just wanted to give everyone an update and blog my intake for the day.
Today, I ate:
Breakfast: coffee, clif peanut butter builder’s bar.
Snack: apple cinnamon cheerios, coffee.
Lunch: everything bagel w/cream cheese, banana yogurt.
Dinner: tomato basil pizza burger.
because I have waay too much music to restrict myself to a 4gb phone card.
I just haven’t bought one yet because I know I’ll end up buying the one with the most memory, and those are pretty damn expensive.
Today, I decided that as my incentive for losing 15lbs, I’ll buy myself an iPod touch after I reach my 6th goal weight of 133lbs. Sounds like a plan to me.
