All right, I was bad today. I REALLY need to get on the eating healthy wagon, but it's been hard to find the motivation. I have no problem exercising, because I LOVE exercising, but eating healthy is soooo hard for me. (And having AF arrive certainly doesn't help the junk food cravings. )
Breakfast: A bowl of Life cereal with fat-free milk, and 8 oz. Faygo cola (I needed my caffeine kick, and didn't feel like making coffee, lol) Lunch: Baked Cheetos (probably about 2 servings), and 2 s'mores (half a Hershey's chocolate bar, 2 graham crackers, and 2 large marshmallows) Dinner: Mac n cheese and a can of Mt. Dew Snacks: Piece of chocolate ice cream cake Water: I don't know for sure, but at least 40 oz. (that's actually low for my typical day) Exercise: Stretched; went for a 30-minute brisk walk with Caleb (I didn't wear him; I took his stroller so that I could walk faster), 20 push-ups, and about 15-20 minutes of ab-crunching dancing. Reflection: Now that I've typed it out, I guess I didn't do THAT bad. If I knocked out the soda, then I'd say that it was an okay day. I could have made better choices, but I didn't consume a crazy amount of calories, so I'm happy. Oh! And I'm starting to take my prenatals again. I haven't taken any vitamins since pregnancy.
Breakfast #1: Small Blueberry muffin (bad..white sugar..but my sugars were really low I needed a quick fix). Breakfast #2 (b/c I'm a boob and ate white sugar, my blood sugar was all jacked up and I needed to eat again an hour later): Egg-beaters and a bannana Lunch: piece of left-over lasagna and one piece of Dove chocolate Dinner: Grilled chicken salad and vingerette dressing Snacks: Handful of chips, Handful of gold-fish, and a protein bar, and a glass of red wine Water: maybe 4 bottles? Not good. Exercise: One hour walk with Aly in the stroller. Reflection: I feel so overwhelmed and anxious..how am I going to do this when I go back in two weeks? Esp. the exercising..I do not want to exercise when I get home from work when I only get maybe 4 hours to see Alyssa before she and I both need to go to bed.
I'm seriously debating getting some lipo.

Reflection: Since last Thursday I have been keeping track of what I eat everyday and trying to make better choices by counting calories. Today I had approximately 1100 calories so I consider that a good day!! I really should drink more water but I'm just not a big drinker! I also should do some form of exercise everyday......
