This app is a HUGE help to me. I love food. Greasy, cheesy, filled with sour cream food. Using this app has really helped me stop over-eating and eating such unhealthy things. I used to eat a Chick-fil-A breakfast every morning! Now I realize how much of my daily calories that takes up, so it doesn't happen often. Oatmeal is just fine, thank you very much! Haha!
Here's my Slim Down Saturday update:
Wahoo!!!!!! I've lost 10 pounds! I weighed myself for the first time since January 1st this morning. (Well, at 11:00 when I woke up! Haha!) I was so excited that I called my boyfriend, mom, dad, best friend, and accidentally sent a text to the soccer association board!
I can't weigh myself every morning. 1) It can be discouraging. 2) I'm not a morning person, and I can't remember anything before I've had some caffeine and a shower. But this morning I remembered! And it was so exciting.
What I know has helped has been faithful entering into My Fitness Pal. Yesterday, my team ordered food for lunch. So I ate a lite breakfast and used all my calories for the yummy, cheesy, sour cream laden quesadillas and the delicious tortilla chips and salsa! Just that meal alone was 1300 calories! So I had a VERY lite dinner and managed to just barely go over my calorie goal. It's just about planning. Which I have never done.
I definitely need to work out. Still haven't done it. I did walk the dogs on Monday, but working out after school is just not possible right now. Until soccer registration is over (I'm the registrar), I just don't have any time at night. This is when I wish I was a morning person so I could get up and do it in the mornings! But it already takes multiple alarms for me to get up from school. My goal is to get better at forcing myself to workout!!!
Water is growing on me. Yesterday, I bought a Brita water pitcher to try to cut down on the empty water bottles. I still drink Diet Dr. Pepper, but with a water in between each! Hey, it's something!
How is everyone else doing? I'm so excited to be on this journey with everyone!
