Clean eating- day 2

My breakfast this morning.

Now I just have to get used to drinking my coffee black. All that sugar and creamer add ups to 10-20 extra grams of sugar, which is not good. My other alternative is usually green tea. I try to squeeze on some type of caffeine ervyday to jump start my metabolism.

What do your clean breakfasts consist of?

Clean eating starts today!

After Thanksgiving's binge, I felt somewhat relieved getting it out of the way. Even though I still have a few more holiday parties to attend this month, I'm making it a point to start eating cleaner and as in now. It is the last month of 2012 after all, so might as well live it out right.

Admittedly, this sudden urge of motivation came upon me today as it was spent watching hours of "before & after" weight loss videos on youtube. Seeing these women overcome their struggles and achieve their goal weight is so uplifting. I just want to give them all a big hug!

Holiday binging has begun

This may not be good, especially for the simple fact that I will not hold back. These are the times I like to enjoy with loved ones, live in the moment, and indulge in the feast.

Fall is here (and I just started bikram yoga)

Fall season is here, and I'm just loving all the beautiful colors and cooler weather. I wish it were longer.

I took on a new daily routine- bikram yoga. It is said that one session can burn up to 1,000 calories, so I decided to give it a try (well, and with other reasons and benefits in mind.) My friends and I signed up for an unlimited month of classes and we're going to stick to it for 30 days. We're using each other as motivational coaches. It's working. We started Monday night straight after work. We were sweating our butts off and enjoyed every 90 minutes of it.

Towards the end, we were feeling like we couldn't push ourselves any further, but then we made it through and felt fully accomplished. It was a wonderful first time experience for our body, mind, and soul.

Weekend binge

I treat myself to whatever I crave on the weekends. All week is steady and strict eating, then Saturday and Sundays are my "fun" days. In time, I'll eventually wean off Sundays and stick to just Saturday binges. 

I've been on and off again with the "Myfitnesspal" app. The main reason being- I eat the same thing everyday. It gets boring and repetitive recording the same meals. I pretty much know what 1200 calories a day looks like.

I measured myself today, and the results are pretty much the same. Not that I'm disappointed, but just a little surprised that my healthier eating habits haven't effected my numbers.

Starting tomorrow, no more white carbs. I'm promising myself that much at least. I read somewhere that fruits don't help contribute to weight loss as well. Well, let's put that to the test. Fruit and white carbs are black listed for now during the week. This is definitely a challenge. Let's hope this works.

Mini sandwiches

Lately I've been packing these small sandwiches as a mid-day snack. Normally I don't slather the bread with butter, but today I was feeling a little bold.
