I have slowed down on working out a lot since I have been working, but I am still slowly losing weight (thanks to all the walking at work)! I can't wait till I can get back in the gym though, I really miss it!
I am not counting calories or being super strict on everything that I am eating, but I am very aware of what I am putting in my body. I am trying to make sure that it is lots of fruits and veggies and less crap than I was eating. I am cutting out calories and fat by supplementing fat free or low fat versions of things like cheeses, soups, and creams in my cooking, I have cut out sodas and I am drinking diet green tea instead, and I have cut out fast food almost completely. If I am really hungry before dinner, I eat a big salad with fat free dressing so that I don't over indulge on dinner.
My new favorite adult beverage is Voli vodka and lemonade. Voli vodka is a low cal vodka and I found 15 calorie per serving lemonade. It is a super yummy drink and very refreshing, especially on a hot day out by the pool :)
I know that there will be cheat days/weekends, and I am ok with that. I am learning to not be so hard on myself if I do fall off the wagon, but to just get right back on track.
Having a support system is really important, and I highly encourage anyone trying to lose weight and be healthier, to partner with someone. They can keep you on track, be a motivation when you are down, or scold you when you do fall off the wagon and have a hard time getting back on. I have several people in my support system, and they have been a huge help for me.
So far I am down 5 or 6 pounds, which is not a lot, but I don't plan on putting it back on. I am ok with it coming off slowly, as long as I keep the weight off. I have finally moved back into the 160s, and I am looking forward to the 150s!! I will keep you updated!!
What keeps you on track and motivated??
