And how can I be sure I had a calorie deficit yesterday, you ask? Because yesterday I signed up for myfitnesspal. *sigh* I am not a tracker. We've been through my little tirade about hating having to track food before. However, when I'm struggling, it's an excellent way for me to get focused. I did it in December 2010 and actually lost weight that holiday season (probably should've reverted back last month but I digress...). So I'm tracking. I probably took in a little less yesterday than it logged but when it comes to tracking homemade stuff, serving sizes and nutritional value is harder to figure out. So I overestimate on stuff just to be safe. Yesterday looked good. I would've gone over my allotment if not for the exercise but that's what exercise is all about right? Right.
So overall, feeling good so far this year. Feeling more focused and ready. I came up with a team name for my Color Run (I still need one more person to make a team so if any of you are in the Phoenix area and want to join me, just ping me). I picked "Roy G Biv for President." It's a goofy name, I know...what can I say? I'm kind of a dork. ROYGBIV is the acronym kids use to remember the colors of the rainbow so I thought this was cute for a Color Run where you get doused with paint every 1k.
Oh! Oh! Oh! I almost forgot. So the fabulous Fluffy had a giveaway where you could win Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD. I won!!! It came in the mail yesterday. I've decided that February will be my Jillian Michaels month (I know February only has 29 days but I think it's OK) as I need to focus on my 5k training for January. I, of course, will track my workouts here. Special thanks to Fluffy for the DVD...you're the best!!! By the way, if any of you are NOT following Fluffy, what's the matter with you?? She's such an inspiration, especially on the fitness front!
So I snapped a quick picture of myself in one of my new outfits this morning. It's really the same outfit I've had in like 5 variations since I was 18 but it's a good business casual look for work. Shopping is kind of boring in transitional sizes because it's always stuff for work and it's always like a pair of black pants, brown pants, gray pants, etc. But anyway, some of you asked to see some of the other stuff I bought so...ask and ye shall receive:
|If I don't look thrilled, please keep in mind that it's 4:45 a.m...also, I know the top is a bit see through, I AM wearing a cami underneath so I don't get fired. LOL|
