Keep trucking along...

I feel much  better lately, mindset is back and it's strong! I realized I won't get anywhere fast still eating tons of sweets and making stupid decisions. One day a time. I've been feeling super motivated and loving it!

Been staying  under calories of 1200 for the past few days. I feel better already, packing my lunches as much as I can without getting bored of the same thing over and over. I made my fave chili this past Sunday (Chicken taco chili from the skinnytaste site), so that's lunch this week. I also have some really tasty hot and spicy Guss pickles for snacking (4-5 slices for 5 cals). I've been bringing my blender bottle with my Big Train Spiced Chai Latte protein powder to work (70 cals, 10p for 8 oz of water), I carry around Muscle Milk light protein bars (170 cals/15p), trying to stay away from sodas (even diet, but having one right now for some caffiene), trying to keep things simple and follow rules.

Exercise has been fantastic! Been zumba-ing all the time as usual (mostly on Tues/Thurs/Fri and sometimes the weekends) and at home (I got Zumba Core for the Xbox for xmas and I love it!), I did a new kettlebell workout dvd from Bob Harper last week, whew! Talk about soreness and feeling it! I couldn't walk right for about 6 days, haha! Good stuff. I took last week off from my Couch 2 5k program because my left knee/right groin were bothering me on my last run of Week 4 the week before. I got back at it last night for Week 5, Day 1, success! Felt pretty good and no knee or groin issues to report. :D However, the next run is a little intimidating, but I will try and if not, I will just do Day 1 over until I feel super comfortable, no shame in that. Starting Yoga at work tomorrow, super pumped about this! It's every Wednesday from 12-1, so very excited to get my zen on! Tonight = weights and zumba. I def. need to continue to build on some lean muscle, I've been slacking in that dept and not happy about it.

Not sure if I mentioned this before, but I had a fill I believe on October 17, 2012 of half a CC. Well, within 2 weeks, I was sick every single day, pretty much every meal, no matter what it was. I called to get an unfill and I got .25 out. I've been fine since, but I really haven't lost. I've been fluctuating between 205.6 and 209.2 (or something like that) since. I'm not sure what to make of this plateau, I won't lie, I've been super frustrated about, especially with the holidays, I did not do as well as I would have liked. My last weigh in was the 205 one and I weighed this past Sunday at 206.6. 1lb. gain, not as bad as I thought. I can maintain, huh? lol. Now I just need to see Onederland and get even more motivated, bring it on!! Maybe a VERY small fill on my appointment on January 23rd, maybe...

Til next time...
