Day 55

Okay, so that whole not-posting-what-I-eat-thing, wasn't really working for me. Yeah, maybe it's boring to read, but it helps keep me on track. I've noticed that over the past few days (which have been mighty stressful.), amidst the holiday goodies was me: feeling stressed, craving chocolate, and in desperate need of a jog.

And the one thing I needed to keep me focused I didn't have- an audience. Yeah, I kept track on my phone throughout the day, but it's not the same. Announcing every single thing I eat to "the entire world" (ha...haha) makes me think twice before I pop that second red velvet cake truffle. So, although the break was nice, it's back to the daily grind.

And after a sweat session and a new recipe today, it feels good to be back. :)
  •  1 breakfast sandwich
    1 whole wheat English muffin
    1 tablespoon of Egg Beater's Garden Vegetable...eggs?
    2 tablespoon of Egg Beater's egg whites
    Some chopped green peppers
  • 1/2 grapefruit 
  • Coffee with 1 cream, 1 Splenda

Yumm. I'm an eggcellent chef.

  • Salad BEAST
  • Romaine, red and green bell peps, cukes, carrots, red grapes and 1 tablespoon low-fat sesame-soy dressing.
  • 1 whole wheat Sandwich Thin (toasted) with 2 slices low-sodium turkey.

  • 1 Chobani low-fat blueberry Greek yogurt.
  • Salad- Romaine, red and green bell peps, cukes, carrots and 1 clementine with 1 tbsp Low-Fat Sesame-Soy dressing
  • Awesome sweet potato fries.
    I took 1 (huge) sweet potato cut it into "fries" or...I attempted to. Then, I took 1 teaspoon of cumin, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder, 1 tablespoon of dried rosemary and a super secret ingredient. (It's not a secret. I just don't know what it's called right now and..i'll let you know.)  and mixed them together in a small bowl.
    Next, I placed the raw fries in a big baggie and poured in 1 tbsp of olive oil (healthy fats! wooo!).
    Then comes the fun part! I poured in the spices and shook it up!
     *Bake at 400 degrees for 22 minutes.


 They were delicious and filling. My mom and I both had some, and we had leftovers. They were a huge success!
  • 30 minutes on elliptical, 2.76 miles, 336 calories
  • 10 minutes on treadmill (everything else ride showed up just as I was getting started) :( 
  • Some strength training
  • this intense circuit
  • A short cardio workout from The Fitnessista's   Youtube channel
  • and a 20 minute yoga workout that came free in my Kashi box. :)

    (What can I say? I was feeling energetic today. Who knew that could happen on a Monday?!)

Working in a Winter Wonderland (An Update)

Yeah, it's that time of year again....the holiday season. (My favorite season!) Unfortunately, that means i'm working retail in the mall. I know it's not a full time job, but i've been getting slammed with hours lately.
I'm not complaining, more hours means more money, but the blog has been suffering. (I know, excuses excuses.)

Not only the blog, either. My workouts have just been kind of mediocre lately...skipping the gym because I have work is occurring more and more often. I still love the gym, (well. as much as a person can love going to the gym), but dealing with frantic holiday shoppers is so draining. When i'm done work, I just don't feel up to it.

However, my diet has been spot on. (Woo!) Even on my recent trip to NYC (I did my research, post coming soon.)

Speaking of dieting, I'm considering not posting everything  I eat and drink every day. If I do decide to do that, i'll still keep a record. I think it's good for me. I just won't publish it- because to be honest- it's boring. I don't know yet though, we'll see.

Now, if I eat something super delicious i'll post it, but by guys know what I eat. It's pretty much the same stuff on a different cycle.

Anyway. I have a feeling after Christmas things will die down and I can give you a REAL update.

But until then-
What do you do when you're schedule changes or gets crazy hectic? How do you keep with your workouts? Do you keep up with your workouts?

What are you doing in preparation for the holiday season? I hope you're not working retail...mall food is badddd. :(


(Yeah you read that timestamp right. It's 1.27 done work at 12:30. Blahhh.)

Day 42 (F for Fitness during Finals)

I'm feeling like I failed on my diet/exercise plan today....studying for finals finally caught up to me (i'm still not done). Besides having a HUGE 10 minute presentation in Spanish (speaking in another language....)  today, I also had to study for my 2 hardest finals, which are both tomorrow. I went 5 hours without eating while I was in the library...which was bad. I inhaled dinner and I knew it was bad. I was just starving. That will not happen again. A mistake isn't a mistake if you learn from it...right? Right? I hope so. I can't wait until finals are over so I can have more food choices and more time to work out. Thursday night can't come soon enough...'s the daily:

  • Coffee with 1 cream, 1 Splenda
  • 1 slice whole wheat bread with organic peanut butter
  • 5 orange slices
  • Turkey and Swiss on 1 slice whole wheat bread (toasted)
  • A few red and green bell pepper slices, a few cucumbers
  • A few pineapple slices
  • Grilled chicken
  • Vegetarian chili
Study Snackin'
  • Some Kellog's Low Fat Granola with raisins. 
No Workout
 This is where I get irritated. I was so motivated to jog today, but I just didn't have time. I know it's not a huge deal, since I can just go for the rest of the week, but I hate when I deviate from a plan...

That's another reason why i'll be glad to be home...I can have a PLAN! At home, I know what I will be eating for dinner. At school, it's always different. Also...i'll know the nutrition information for everything I put in my mouth, and i'll have measuring cups! Such a luxury!

Anyway. I'm just going to keep telling myself what I wrote earlier.
It's only a mistake if you don't learn from it. Yeah....yeah.

Monday, December 13, 2010

  • 1 slice whole wheat bread with organic/natural peanut butter

  • 1 sweet potato
Late Night Study Snackin'
  • 1 banana 
  • Celestial Lemon Zinger's gonna be a long night. (Even though the tea is caffeine free..shhhh) 
 Soo good.
 And possibly the best thing about these teas is the sayings on the little tabby things. :)
They always make me smile.
    It's gonna be a longgg night. 10 minute presentation in Spanish tomorrow... Time for a study break? Si, por supuesto!
    • 30 minutes on elliptical, 2.85 minutes, 330 calories

    Day 40 (HIIT!)

    •  1 S'mores Luna Bar (My Sunday Luna Bar ha!)
    • 1 Green Tea with Splenda (I need Stevia. Splenda=Bad)
    • 1/2 Grapefruit

    Late Night Snackin'
    • Some organic/gluten free granola that I got from the caf the other day...delicious!

    Workout (HIIT IT!)

    • 30 minutes on treadmill, 1.90 miles, 220 calories
      Total: 1 hour, 4.75miles, 550 calories
      I did some HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) today, and let me tell you...the "intensity" part is no joke! Recently, I've found that my workouts on the elliptical haven't been as challenging and HIIT is great for weight loss. So here is what I did:
                     5 minute warm up...6 on incline 7 on resistance
                      20 minutes of HIIT- 1 minute of sprinting/high intensity, 2 minutes at a slower pace.
                      Every 3 minutes (1 minute fast, the other 2 slow), I would kick up the resistance. (I range from 7-9) and I always stay on the 6 incline
                      5 minute cool down
      Same thing on treadmill, just with jogging...and no incline...and not so fast, but I'm working on it. :)

    Weigh-in (sort of)

    (I wrote this post 2 nights ago, now i'm finally getting around to pusblishing it. Enjoy.)

    Sometimes... a nighttime workout is just what the doctor ordered. :)

    I switched it up tonight and hit the gym at night. I bundled up in a hoodie and a winter coat and braved the 21 degree weather with my water bottle, iPod, and Spanish text book in hand.
    Yeah, you read that right. Spanish text book. It's the end of the week before finals! So, yes, I was that girl studying on an elliptical...hopefully my grades and body will both thank me for it.

    So that was part 1, the elliptical/estudiando para una prueba en clase de espanol manana. Part 2 consisted of the treadmill, walking briskly for 10 minutes, then walking for 90 seconds and jogging for 90 seconds for the last 10 minutes while watching Disney's Prep & Landing on abc. This movie is such a fun and cute holiday special. It's just all around adorable.

    ...and that, my friends, is just what the doctor ordered.
    I've been so busy with balancing the end of the semester, suitemates, working out and eating right, plus regular holiday stress that I needed to just unwind at the end of the day. I usually feel pretty good at the end of workouts, but tonight I felt like something had really been lifted off my shoulders (the benefits of working out!). could have had something to do with the fact that I listened to Christmas music on my way back from the gym. :)

    Anyway, this post was just a long-winded way of saying I'm sorry. I know i've been slackin'on the bloggin' lately, but I promise you two things:
    1. That will all change Dec 17th. 
    2. I have not been slacking on my plan. Take a look for yourself and read some posts below. Comment on em'. :)
    Also, I haven't stopped weighing myself. I weighed myself on Tuesday as usual, I just didn't upload any videos because school is a priority right now.

    SO- I'm going to post a video when I come home for the holidays! I'm going to do it big (ha, no pun intended), so keep a look out! 

    I hope you all are cool with that. Just know that i'm still on track!

    Anyway, I hope your holiday stress is at a minimum. If not, you should hit the gym, watch Prep & Landing and listen to some Christmas music. (It gets you in the holiday spirit so you're not a Grinch and clears your head.) :)

    • Salmon
    • Rice pilaf
    • Broccoli
    • Chips with homemade salsa

    I know what you're thinking. "Tanya, that's a lot!" Well, I can explain. Tonight was the famous Holiday Dinner at school....people line up outside the caf an hour in advance to get in there fast. The food is delicious, the decorations are amazing and the desserts are...TEMPTING. So, considering what I would have eaten if I wasn't on these plan, I did pretty darn good. Plus, those chips and salsa are only offered once a year. I had to eat them. You would, too. I know you would. Let's be honest. :)

    Can I just talk about this smoothie for a second? It was DELICIOUS!

It was amazing and a perfect pick-me-up during the week before finals. Actually, I was sort of afraid to try protein powder, but it was tasty, and you know, good for you. :) It was sad that I couldn't even finish it.
    • Grilled chicken with some kind of sauce on it. (It's the caf in ignorance and enjoy. Not really. I hate not knowing exactly what i'm putting in my mouth these days)

    • Homemade veggie soup!
    Late Night Study Snack!
    • 100 calorie pack of 94% fat free popcorn with
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons of semi-sweet chocolate chips

      You better believe this is going to be my "Hooray! I survived finals!" snack, but it is obviously just an occasional treat.

      ...although this snack was pretty healthy and very tasty...I kind of scared myself when I was eating it..When I was eating this popcorn...I could feel myself going back to my old ways...eating too fast, wanting more NOW, and it scared me. I just freaked because I don't want to be that person anymore. and I won't. I CAN control this. Portion control is a big part of weight loss and I know that.

      So overall, I guess it's a good thing that I caught myself. I only had one serving...I didn't dive right into the chocolate again, which is exactly what I would have done a month ago. I guess I just have to be really aware of what sets off my binges (or...what did set off my binges...past tense!) So...beware of chocolate!
      Darn my sweet tooth! :(

      Wednesday, December 1, 2010

      Day 29

      • 1 slice whole wheat toast with peanutbutter
      • About 5 grapefruit slices (Yes! The caf had grapefruit again!)
      • 2 orange slices
      • Coffee with 1 cream, 1 Splenda (Gahh. I gotta kick this coffee habit...after Finals.)
       Lunch (That's right! Lunch!)
      • Homemade veggie soup. Example of the recipe here.
      • 1 small apple
      • 1 cup Green Tea (which is apparently great for dieting! Just like soup!)
      • Salad- Romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, red and green bell peppers, a few raisins, walnuts, chickpeas
      • 1 small sweet potato
      •  A little bit of this rice-like stuff they had at the vegetarian bar- don't ask me what it was, but it was darn good!
      • 13 (equal to 1 serving size) of Quaker's Whole Grain Fiber Crisps in Blueberry Pomegranate.
        (If i'm going to go for a packaged food....this is going to be it!)
      **No gym today. It was torrential downpouring...I mean it, flood warnings and all, I don't lie! So what I did- I checked the weather for tomorrow and Friday. Both days are going to be clear and sunny! So instead of skipping the gym on Thursday, I skipped Wednesday! 

      Weigh-in # 3

      I lasted a month! Can you believe it?
      I can barely believe it, actually, it's not that hard. Sure, some days are harder than others, but seeing results physically and on the scale is more than enough motivation to keep me going!
      To be honest, eating healthy isn't hard anymore. They say that eventually your taste buds change, and I think mine are beginning to accept these healthy delicious foods!

      So- are you ready for the Week 4 Weigh-in?
      Well.....I lost 4 pounds! Which means I'm at 12 pounds total! That brings my weight down from 218 to 206....

      And in case you are really bad at math, that means I need to lose seven more pounds until I'm under 200! (I think that will call for a celebration for sure!)

      Also...i'm only 3 pounds away from the half-way point for my first goal. My first goal is to lose 30 pounds...sooo close to halfway there!! :)

      Now, for the blehh news.
      There are only 2 and a half weeks until the end of the semester. This means that blogging has to take a backseat for a while and i've got to pick up some of the slack in school. Finals are coming up, which is the reason why there was no video today. I really just don't have time. All the work in my classes is piling up, and as important as this blogging thing is to me, finals are pretty darn important to my education- and my GPA.

      So even though finals may kill me, I'm going to try and refrain from gobbling down pizza (as much as I want and keep going to the gym...hey! it clears the mind!
      And i'll keep updating my food log, but that might be about it until Dec 17. (WHEN I'M FREE!)
      So, as usual, wish me luck on my weight loss journey, but finals as well. Yikes.
