This is IT!

I spent the weekend making unhealthy choices and overeating. But now it's out of my system and this is IT! The wedding is six weeks away and it is time to kick it up a notch. I've set some goals for myself to help keep me on track:
  • No cheese (this one will be tough)
  • No peanut butter (I always eat too much, plus it makes me break out!)
  • Less carbs, more protein
  • More whole grains
  • More weight lifting
  • Less chips/snacks, more veggies
It's not going to be easy,but with the wedding getting closer everyday I feel like I have a whole new sense of willpower. I CAN DO THIS!!!

First, a quick fitness recap of last week...

Monday 6/14 - Cardio Party

Tuesday 6/15 - Walking lunges, lifting weights, light jogging (took it easy)

Wednesday 6/16 - Jillian Michael's Quick Trouble Zones

Thursday 6/17 - Cardio Party

Fri-Sun - RESTED!

Plus I have been trying to do bicep curls, military presses, and chest flys everyday.

Now, eats...

For reasons unknown, my breakfast picture disappeared in cyberspace after I sent it to my email from my phone. Bummer. I had vanilla yogurt mixed with chocolate Cheerios and strawberries. It was yummy, but the yogurt sorta hid the flavor of the Cheerios. Ah, well.

Lunch was a sandwich.
Made on a multigrain thin with cracked pepper hummus, feta, spinach, tomatoes, and a swirl of sriracha. DELICIOUS!! Having this again tomorrow for sure :) I also had some parmesan herb baked chips, cucumbers, and Newton's fruit crisps. First time trying the fruit crisps and, because I expected them to be soft, they were a big letdown.

Pizzadilla! Made with a whole-wheat wrap, pizza sauce (mixed with minced garlic and sriracha), spinach and feta. On the side I had broccoli and yogurt blue cheese dressing. Great meal, but left me with a tummy ache for some reason. Another bummer.

When I was feeling a little better I had a dessert of chocolate pretzels, strawberries, and grapes.
Fruit is goooood. This might be the last 100 calorie pack you see for a while. I am trying to stay away from snacks like this that have hardly any nutritional value and rarely fill me up. Still, I'm sure a few will sneak their way into my meals here and there :)


  1. You mentioned more vegetables, but forgot to add fruits in there too.

    Make sure you're still eating enough calories...but of healthy stuff without any fake, chemical ingredients.

    Then you'll def look and feel your best on your big day! :o)

  2. I hear ya !!! way too much indulgence this weekend !! back to oatmeal in the morning !
    That's great that you're kicking it up but don't go overboard - if you completely give up cheese, you'll go on your cruise and eat 4 lbs of it in one sitting and hate youself. Get the Laughing Cow Lite cheese wedges - 35 calories per and they're yummy on Pop Chips or anything else - The walking lunges - GREAT for you !!! Aim for 100 at a time - You'll feel it ! You look the best I've ever seen you look- so take it easy on yourself - You're going to be a knockout either way on the day of the wedding !!! xo
