|The best portrait ever drawn of me. "Aunt Heather Outside"|
I was thinking last night about struggles I had with weight gain towards the end of last year- I couldn't wrap my head around it- I was eating healthy and exercising, or so I told myself. Looking back at my (very incomplete) food journals, I really wasn't. I was consistently eating too much and not getting in much activity. That is a surefire way to gain weight. A sedentary lifestyle paired with eating out a lot and not really paying attention to my food.
This year, I feel like I'm on the right track. I don't feel deprived at all- but I am definitely keeping an eye on the food that's going into my body. I had a really healthy day yesterday, yet I still ate out for lunch, had a small cannoli for dessert, and a beer to end the day. However, I still stayed in a healthy range of calories. Maybe TallBoy had a full size cannoli and I just had a mini, but it only really takes a few bites of sugar to satisfy you- sugar is a very powerful food- something to keep in mind.
Just a great week. Here's to another one!
This week: -1.0 lb
Total 2013: -9.6 lbs
So close to Goal #2!
