So. New goal. Bringing it down to 170lbs by my birthday, late January. And here is how I'm going to do it:
- Back to at least 3 runs a week. I love it, and I think I want to try some longer distances and interval training. A great way to ramp up my runs is taking my friends dog with me. He could go for 20 miles and still want to chase after balls.
- Make more of my own food. I have become really lazy in this area. My bike got stolen a few months ago, and the bike I am borrowing is just not as comfy to ride, though I am super grateful to have it. This means less trips to the grocery store. Time to move my ass.
- Keep on doing Pilates. I seriously love that Netflix Instant Queue has workout videos. And now my roomie is doing them as well! Woot for her!
- Limit the drinking. This is hard to do because I love meeting up with people in bars and going to Improv shows. And I always feel like such a schmuck for taking up space in a venue without buying anything. I guess I need to be okay with being a schmuck?
I also am trying to incorporate smoothies into my life. I think if I committed to those being one of my meals every day, I could cut back on calories and fat.
And one more thing.
No more straight up fried foods. Specifically, fries and tator tots. I have finally figured out that when I eat those things, my stomach rebels, and I have a really hard time sleeping. Go figure. I thought it was wine that would wake me up in the middle of the night, but it's fries and tots. Which sucks, but I'm done with the bellyaches, so it's time.
Hope all y'alls winter seasons are starting off right!
