Water: no idea.
Work outs: 1 yoga session, 10 squats every morning and all the walking and stairs that go with being a New Yorker.
No Going Out/In: 7/7 days!!! 100%.
No Breads: 4/7 days.
Okay. So I can easily affiliate the number on the scale with how much I've been ordering out/in.
WHEN I COOK, I LOSE WEIGHT.
A big no-duh, right? Well, sometimes if you're obstinate, you have to figure it out the hard way. And I would say I didn't even cook that clean or healthily. Burgers without bread. Homemade chicken pizzas on pitas. Black bean and veg burritos. A huge salad here and there. In the morning, Q'ia or a small protein shake w/ hazelnut milk.
I've created my weekly grocery shopping template - and only buy when I run out.
Spinach or kale... something green and leafy, preferably on sale.
Boiled eggs (buying 'em fresh obviously).
Oranges or kiwis or berries depending on sales.
Protein bar (from doc's office).
Meats - chicken cutlets, small steaks, pork chops (morton williams)
Cheeses - Shredded/crumbled Feta, Pecorino Romano, Mozzarella, or Parmesan.
Basil Red Sauce or pesto sauce.
Yeah... there's space for trimming that back to an even healthier list. Good room to grow. It's definitely better and more affordable than the Order In Every Other Night Diet.
Despite my reservations, I'm going to attend an Over-eaters Anon meeting this upcoming week. Because I seriously need a social life aside from my roommates and the boys I've dated... and because I have a serious issue with food, emotions, control and satiety. I have a hard time with the 12 step idea. Because as much as it says it's not a religious thing, it's constantly referring to Higher Power... etc. etc. etc. Due my naturally contrary nature, I can see that being an obstacle. Also, I'm deeply NOT a spiritual person. It's a thing.
On the only-sort-relevant-to-weight-loss front...
- The kitty knocked my laptop off the end table and broke it.
- My smart phone came in (I'm back on myfitnesspal daily now).
- And I financed a new laptop yesterday - normally not something I do, but since freelance is a source of income, I justified it.
So I'm riding a new technology wave. Do you guys have any favorite apps? C25k? Runtracker?
7 hours of walking (1 hour per day hopefully).
