Day 3 ! Early Rise & Grind

44c7b99f-a3da-41dd-8721-5bd3dbc9e286wallpaperHelllooo everyone, today was an EARLY day. I’m currently at work just waiting for the next transport. I was up around 4:30AM, got to work 5:15AM and now it’s 8:20AM lol… BORING, but hey… we gotta do, what we gotta doooo!

photo-3Well, after our first transport I ordered an Ice Coffee with Cream & Sugar (yikes!). I was too afraid to go black because I wasn’t sure if i’d like it or not. I like hot black coffee though. Eh whatever, I can’t wait for breakfast though, i’m starving! I’m thinking egg whites with tomato, lettuce and mozzarella on multigrain toast. ahhh excited!

So today is, I believe Cardio & Resistance training for INSANITY. I’m going straight to doing that afterwork. Woop woop! Then I’m feeling sushi later with my sister and her boyfriend. Ah man, can NEVER go wrong with sushi… and then dinner is just gonna be a protein shake.

proteinThis is what I have, it’s actually pretty tasty. If I use it as a meal replacement like I will today, than I add 8oz of low fat milk and 1 scoop of protein powder, if it’s a snack/post-workout drink then I just use water with 2 scoops of protein powder. And my favorite bottle ever! The Blender Bottle! Best investment ever! :]

Well, I really have nothing else to talk about… Today is just an early day. Oh, but I do have a healthy recipe to share! I think I’m going to make a batch tonight to eat tomorrow and friday for lunch :] Try it out!
Quinoa Turkey With Feta and Sundried Tomatoes
Cook quinoa as per packet instructions. Make turkey burgers with turkey minced, diced onions and garlic, freshly chopped parsley and coriander, cumin, salt and pepper. Drizzle the olive oil from marinated feta and olive jars over the quinoa and break up the turkey burgers, combining them with the quinoa. Add lemon juice and combine sundried tomatoes and olives.

*I got this off instagram, i follow healthy eats or something like that. It sounds good, but we’ll see.

Have a great day everyone! and if you got awesome recipes, PLEASE PLEASE SHARE

 

Day 2! Plyometric cardio & yummy Chipotle dindin

ImageSo to the left would be pre-work out and to the right would be post-workout lol… Man, I was DRIPPING IN SWEAT.

So last night I had the overnight Ambulance shift and had NO SLEEEEP 😦 It was terrible. I got home around 730am and passed out. I officially got off my bed at 4pm. I wasted my whole day!! AHHH, but it’s alright… Got up, got my work out clothes on and did INSANITY!

I burned 460 calories ! I thought it would be more with how hard I worked but oh well.

After that I was hungry so I ran to Chipotle, was really craving it.  I got the bowl, brown rice, black beans, tomatoes, lettuce and some cheese.. or and (don’t judge) sour cream.. haha, its so good!!! lol and then I had sparkling blackberry juice.

Photo on 5-21-13 at 6.04 PMI couldn’t even finish that massive bowl, but it was so good and the drink was too. Now if i was following my 8 hour feast schedule like normal, I wouldn’t have gotten all that… would be like a small taco but since it’s already past 6pm and i’m not supposed to be eating anymore, I went a little more than usual on my meal. I’m satisfied =] and it worth totally worth it, haha.

Well, that was pretty much my boring, boring day. Sleep, work out, eat and now i’m just gonna chill and watch TV in my room. I have to up at 4:15 AM tomorrow for work 😦 ugh… So early bedtime for me! Hope you all had a great day ;]

day 1 ! INSANITY FIT TEST & zummbaa

Image

So I know I have already started a day 1… well, we’re DOING IT AGAIN! lol, Since my last post, i said I had started the INSANITY workout, and was definitely seeing results until my week EXPLODED and i was thrown off completely.

I decided to start insanity all over again. I also decided to create a schedule for my life. I’ve learned that if I just create a daily routine for myself, I’ll get the MAX results and my body will be used to it and eventually crave it!

So last night, I was asleep by 11pm and woke up today 7am. (i got those 8 hours ;] ) but then i fell asleep again, until 8. My alarm went off, i got up, dressed into work out gear and downstairs. Did my measurements and weight and pressed play for the INSANITY fit test. THE RESULTS:

photoNot too bad, The results were better on my 2nd fit test the first round, but hey… this is what happens after 1 week of doing nothing but mope. SO.. you have my reps… AND my measurements. I’m an open book folks. Every 2 weeks I take this test and we will both see the amazing results!

Next thing: I bought a heart rate monitor 😀 It’s called, DUO 1010 from sports line (dual-use heart rate monitor) It’s decent and pretty accurate [sometimes]. After the fit test and 20 minutes of zumba i burned = 365 calories. I think I burned a bit more because sometimes it stops monitoring the HR due to whatever and so.. stops calculating. BUT I LOVE IT! Totally worth getting one. It motivates you to work harder and burn more!

So, as I mentioned earlier, I’ve created a schedule, and I’m going to share it with you! Here is it:

MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

0000 Sleep
0100 Sleep
0200 Sleep
0300 Sleep
0400 Sleep
0500 Sleep
0600 Sleep
0700 Wake up (8 hours of sleep)
0800 Workout
0900
1000 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, Âź cup granola oats, 1 cup strawberries, halved
1100
1200 1 cup of Fruit
1300
1400 Protein, Vegetables, Salad
1500
1600 1 cup of Fruit
1700
1800 Protein, Vegetables, Salad
1900
2000
2100
2200 Get ready for bed
2300 Sleep

So.. to explain. it’s written in military time.. cause i’m just used to it. So this is ideal, but already i have to change it for mon, wed and friday because of work but overall, this is my ideal day. My goal is to have 8 hours of sleep every night [we’ll see how well that goes, lol] . The times bolded is my eating window. Ever heard of intermittent fasting? My ex boyfriend swears by it, and i’m like uhhh fasting!? no way. BUT I tried it and it works! What it is you fast 16hours and feast 8 hours, so from 10am to 7pm i’m eating every 2 hours, but after 7pm until 10am I am fasting. I even noted what kind of food to eat at what time.

I hung this schedule in my room and I truly feel like it’s fool proof. i’ll keep you all posted daily on my daily activity! I’m excited.

Well, it’s 10AM! time for breakfast:
1 cup plain fat-free greek yogurt (i’m eating oikios)
1/4 cup of gluten free granola
1 cup of grapes
YUMMMMY
Photo on 5-20-13 at 9.59 AMHAHA, i look ridiculous. I have tons of chores to do today so i’m off to do that after I eat my yogurt. WHICH BTW IS A GREAT POST WORKOUT MEAL. I’ll be eating again in two hours lol, something light.. probably a mango or something. Tonight I have ambulance which ALREADY messes up my sleeping schedule lol, but like I said, I have a plan and that’s so much better than winging it.

I hope today’s blog motivates you to create a plan and get healthy!

been a while! new goals, FITNESS, HEALTHY, HAPPY & KILLER CONFIDENCE.

It’s been since March 1st, that I’ve written a post… I’m SORRY!.. I will say I fell off the wagon.. AGAIN. But it wasn’t all a fail.. I was keeping active and eating healthy. I started INSANITY and then after a month fell off because life happened and emotionally I was destroyed. Last week was the WORST week of my life.. Monday, I didn’t pass my last nursing exam which meant I couldn’t move forward in the program. I have to wait til NEXT SPRING. Which I cried my eyes out when I found out, Tuesday was a family problem that left me crying a lot also, Wednesday, my boyfriend who I fell in love with, so damn hard for… turned out to still be in love with his ex-girlfriend and so left me… do I even need to tell you how I felt? Then Friday I was let go from my job because they didn’t need me anymore due to lack of clientele… SOOOOOOOOOO that was just terrible. i skipped Insanity for the week, didn’t sleep, didn’t eat….been an emotional wreck but TODAY I woke up fantastical :] I have an interview this week for a full time job ;], I’m getting back to my goal as a fitness model, I feel fantastic. So here is to new goals, FITNESS, HEALTHY, HAPPY & KILLER CONFIDENCE. I hope my followers are still out there and you continue to support me. I’m back ;]

42 BEST WAYS TO LOSE STOMACH FAT FAST …

1. HOW MUCH WEIGHT YOU WANT TO LOSE?

Before you do your first sit-up or dump that Cola down the drain, you need to decide how many pounds you want to lose. Losing weight and getting rid of belly fat takes some work, and you really need to set a goal to keep an eye on your progress.

You’re not going to lose all the fat around your waist in 3 days, and you will definitely need to break some sweat before you lose that stomach fat.  Just remember, that it’s completely doable and if you keep implementing these best ways to lose stomach fat, you’ll get the body you wanted in a matter of months.

So, once you know how much weight you want to lose or how many inches around your waist you want to get rid of, all you need to do is pick  minimum 10 ways to losebelly fat from the list below and apply them for 2 weeks.  Afterwards, weigh yourself again or take the new measurements.  You’ll see that your waist is getting slimmer and you’ve already shed a few pounds.  At this point, add 5 more routines from this list to the 10 you’ve been doing before and carry on for 2 more weeks.  Then again, do the measurements to track your progress and add 5 more routines to the 15 ways to lose belly fat you’ve been using so far.  Depending on your weight loss goaland your current weight, it will take anywhere from 4 weeks to 6 months maximum to get that perfect stomach you’ve always wanted.

Now, let’s proceed to the tips to help you get that sexy stomach!

Image

2. CARRY WATER EVERYWHERE TO START LOSING STOMACH FAT

Whether you’re on a weight loss journey, you’re trying tolose belly fat, or you’re just trying to be healthier, it’s always a good idea to keep well-hydrated, and to do that, you’ll want to keep a bottle of water with you everywhere you go. Sip from it every now and then, and you’ll feel fuller, more invigorated, and you’ll also be a lot less likely to indulge in a sugar-laden soda or juice if you’re not thirsty!  This is a sure way to lose stomach fat fast, try it for a week and you’ll see what a difference it makes!

Image

3. COLOR YOUR PLATE

Did you know that the more colorful your meal, the more healthful it’s likely to be? Think about it: carrots, peppers, spinach, tomatoes: they’re all brilliant colors, and they’re all very healthful choices! Keep your plate colorful and you’re well on your way to losing that belly fat!

Image

4. CUT OUT FAST FOOD – IT’S AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR HAVING A FLAT TUMMY

Fast food is the worst culprit in the battle against stomach fat. It’s convenient, sure, but it’s loaded with calories and fat, and those calories and fat head straight to our “problem areas,” our bellies and butts! Skip the fast food, or at least opt for healthier fast food options, like salads (without fried chicken or calorie-rich ranch on them) instead of fries.  But if you are really set on losingstomach fat fast, avoid the fast food altogether.

Image

5. CUT OUT SODA

A serving of soda contains more calories than a large banana, with none of the nutritional value. many of those calories come from high fructose corn syrup, which our bodies don’t really know how to process, and which often ends up turning into belly fat. Ditch the soda and save those calories for something much better for burning belly fat!

Image

6. DOING YOUR WEIGHT BEARING EXERCISES – ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO LOSE STOMACH FAT FAST

If you think you’ll need to spend the rest of your life doing sit-ups and crunches only, so you can burn belly fat and keep it off, that’s not quite true. You’ll need to do all sorts of exercises, in moderation, including weight bearing exercises, like brisk walking, jogging, and the like. Remember, overall fitness and nutrition is the key for losing stomach fat, and making sure it doesn’t come back!

Image

7. DO YOUR NON-WEIGHT BEARING EXERCISES, TOO!

In addition to the weight bearing exercises to help you burn belly fat, you’ll also need to add non-weight bearing exercises, like biking and rowing. These two (weight bearing and non-weight bearing), combined with weight training and cardio, and some yoga thrown in for good measure, will give you a lifetime of fitness and good health — and of course will melt that belly fat away for good!

Image

8. DON’T BE COMPLACENT!

Once you’ve got the body you want (no belly fat in sight!), that doesn’t mean it’s time to rest on your laurels. Don’t stop exercising. Don’t stop eating right. Keep up with your plan, and you’ll keep your new hot body!

Image

9. DON’T STARVE YOURSELF!  IT WON’T HELP YOU LOSE STOMACH FAT FASTER.

Starving yourself will not help you burn belly fat. Cut calories, by all means, especially the empty calories, but to be healthy, and lose belly fat, you need to eat well. Starving yourself is dangerous, terribly unhealthy, and it won’t work anyway!

Image

10. DON’T DEPRIVE YOURSELF, EITHER!

In addition to not starving yourself, don’t feel you have to deprive yourself all the time either just because you want to lose stomach fat. Is this carte-blanche for eating an entire carton of Ben & Jerry’s? No. But you CAN have a small dish, once in a while, to keep the edge off your cravings, and to remind yourself that life is good!  Now, could there be a better way to lose stomach fat? 🙂

Image

11. DON’T GIVE UP ON YOUR GOAL TO LOSE STOMACH FAT FAST

After a couple of weeks you might find that you’re notlosing weight or inches anymore. What gives? Don’t give up, sweetie! That’s just a plateau, a sign your body is adjusting to all of the positive things you’re doing. Keep going! You’re getting there!  You are now much closer to losing all that stomach fat than ever!

Image

12. DON’T TRY TO ISOLATE

It’s a scientific and biological fact: you absolutely cannot isolate one set of muscles and lose fat just in that one spot, and that includes belly fat. If there’s a product or pill that promises otherwise, it’s a scam, straight up. To lose stomach fat, you need to change your diet and exercisehabits, all over. It’s that simple. Truly!

Image

13. DRINK A GLASS OF WATER BEFORE YOU EAT

If you’re thirsty, you’re going to eat more. Isn’t that strange? But it’s true. So before you sit down to eat, drink a glass of cool water, wait a few minutes, then dish out your sensible portion and begin to eat. Much better!  You’ll be surprised at how effective this way to losestomach fat is.  Give it a try!

Image

EAT 5 SMALL MEALS A DAY TO LOSE STOMACH FAT FAST

Rather than eating three large meals every day, switch to five smaller meals: a light breakfast, a mid-morning snack, a light lunch, a mid-afternoon snack, and a balanced dinner. Smaller portions more often will keep you from feeling hungry. And by the way, when I say “snack,” of course I mean something healthful, not a Twinkie!  This way to lose stomach fat does not require a lot of sacrifice, all you need to do is figure out a schedule for your meals, and, with time you’ll be surprised at how eating 5 meals a day will become your new healthy lifestyle habit.

Image

15. GIVE YOURSELF 20 MINUTES TO FEEL FULL AFTER THE MEAL

Did you know that it takes a few minutes for your tummy to realize it’s full? That’s why it’s important to eat slowly and take little breaks between the courses. Otherwise, you’ll end up over-eating, undoing all of the diet magic you accomplished that day, and that’s not what you want if you need to lose that stomach fat fast.

Image

16. GET THE RIGHT FIT!

No matter how thin you are, if you’re wearing jeans that are too small, you’re going to have unsightly muffin top — so make sure you have the right fit, even if it means going up a size or two, and you may not need to burn as muchbelly fat as you thought!  Now, this is probably the easiest way to “lose” stomach fat fast, but bear with me, there are many more ways that will actually require action.

Image

17. GET YOUR CARDIO GOING FOR LOSING STOMACH FAT FASTER!

While weight bearing and non-weight bearing exercise is important to help you lose belly fat, you’ll also need to add cardio to your routine. Try for 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. What counts as cardio? Anything that makes your heart pound hard for that entire 20 minutes: bouncing on the trampoline, dancing your butt off, running, you name it!  Any cardio is good if you are determined to lose thatstomach fat fast.

Image

18. HAVE A SPECIFIC GOAL IN MIND FOR YOUR WEIGHT LOSS

In any endeavor, it’s important to have a goal, and keep it in mind. Make sure your goal for losing stomach fat is realistic, and write it down, repeat it: it’s your new mantra. This goal will keep you motivated on the days when you don’t want to exercise, and when that pint of Ben & Jerry’s is calling your name.

Image

19. IGNORE THE HYPE WHEN IT COMES TO COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS FOR LOSING STOMACH FAT FAST

Let me say this once and for all: if a special diet plan, a pill, or a piece of workout equipment promises to help youburn stomach fat fast, it’s a lie, no matter which celebritysays it works. The absolute only way to burn belly fat fast is to change your diet and exercise… sound familiar? It’s the second time I’ve said something like this in this list. It’s that important. Be skeptical of new products that promise miracles. They’re a waste of your time and money!

Image

20. IGNORE THE SCALE

I hate the scale. We all think of it as the end-all, be-all ofweight loss measurement, but it’s not. First of all, as women, our weight is prone to fluctuate a little on its own with our own natural cycles. Also, as we build lean muscle and lose stomach fat, we’ll actually gain a little weight, though we’re losing inches. Ignore the scale. Or, if you just can’t help yourself, keep the weigh-ins to a minimum, maybe once a week or every two weeks.

Image

21. ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO LOSE STOMACH FAT – KNOWING YOUR PORTIONS

Do you know how big a serving size ought to be? Try this: pour what you think is one serving of cold cereal into a bowl, then measure it against what the side of the box says is a serving. Most of us pour double what the suggested serving size is! And worse, restaurants tend to serve more than twice the serving size, especially in meat and in fats. A serving of meat ought to be about the size of a deck of cards. Most restaurants serve a portion ofchicken or beef that’s at least twice that — be sure you know what a serving size looks like, and save the rest for left-overs.

Image

22. MAINTAIN GOOD POSTURE TO START LOSING STOMACH FAT

Want a quick tip to make it look like you’ve lost inches, even when you haven’t (yet)? Suck your tummy in, put your shoulder back, keep your head up, and, with thisgood posture, you’ll look (and even FEEL) much fitter — it’s even easier to breathe this way! In a way you’ll be toning your abdominal muscles, and as you know – they are essential in losing stomach fat faster.

Image

23. ONE WORD: SWIM!

I know I sound like a broken record, but if you don’t exercise regularly, you’ll never lose belly fat. One of the best ways to exercise, and the most fun this summer, is to swim! The water resistance provides superb low-impact for joints and muscles, and it’s fantastic cardio, too! Anyone can do it… try it and you won’t believe how much more toned your belly will be!

Image

 

24. READ THE LABELS (EVEN ON DIET FOOD)

Even the foods that are supposed to be designed for dieters can be loaded with nasty chemicals and even farmore calories than we need. Always check the labels on the food and drinks you’re about to have — and again, make sure you know what a serving size is!  It’s crucial forlosing stomach fat fast.

Image

25. SEE A PRO

Your doctor, personal trainer and plastic surgeon should NOT be last resorts in your efforts to lose belly fat. Before starting ANY exercise regimen or diet plan, see your doctor, especially if you’re diabetic or if you have had an eating disorder in the past. And a personal trainer can be a friend indeed in your battle against the belly bulge — they know even more tips and tricks than I do, and they’re always willing to help! And once you lose weight, you might still want to tighten things up (loose skin), and that’s where a plastic surgeon can help.

Image

 

26. STRENGTHEN YOUR CORE

Your belly muscles are part of a network of muscles called your core, and they’re vitally important to fitness and good health. Do exercises specifically to strengthen your core, and you’ll not only burn belly fat, you’ll also have betterposture, and you’ll be far less likely to ever suffer from back pain… what a bonus!

Image

27. SUBSTITUTE THE SWEETS TO LOSE STOMACH FAT FASTER

I have a terrible sweet tooth, so it’s always a challenge for me to cut sweets from my diet. I learned a trick, though: sometimes it’s possible to substitute the sweets I crave with something better! Fresh berries or sweet plums, frozen juices, even dried fruits without added sugar — all of these make my sweet tooth happy, without adding the extra sugar and empty calories that I usually get fromsweet treats.  Try this way to lose stomach fat fast and see how beautifully it works!

Image

28. THE PERFECT PUSH-UP?

No, the perfect push-up isn’t at Victoria’s Secret, it’s in the gym (or even at home)! Did you know that a push-up, done correctly, is the perfect exercise? It’s good cardio (if you do enough of them together), it’s great for strengthening your core, and it even helps build lean muscle in all of your other muscle groups. Marvelous! How many push-ups can you do correctly?

Image

29. TRY REVERSE SIT-UPS

This is one of my favorite exercises, and I always love to share it! Sit on an incline bench, then lay back HALF-WAY, then come back up. It’s sort of a reverse sit up, and it’s a lot harder than it sounds! Add these to your work-out routine, and you’ll see what I mean!

Image

30. WORK TOGETHER!

Why is it always easier to diet or exercise with a friend? I’m not sure why, but it’s true. Enlist the aid of a work-out or diet buddy, and burn belly fat and lose inches together! You can inspire each other, help each other, and even have a little friendly competition.

Image

31. YOU NEED TO EAT MORE MEALS AND MORE OFTEN TO LOSE THAT FAT

Don’t get too excited because at the same time you need to reduce the size of your portions. Eating 5-6 small meals per day will first of all prevent you from binging or overeating at meal times and it also keeps your metabolism running as it is constantly burning up food.  Check out 5 Tips on Eating Often and Losing Weight …for more information!

Image

 

32. NEVER SKIP BREAKFAST

Skipping breakfast can actually be one of those things that cause stomach fat! If you don’t eat after many hours of sleeping your body goes into ‘starvation mode’. This is bad news for shedding belly fat as it slows your metabolism down in an effort to save energy and burn less calories. In fact a lot of dietitians advice that the best breakfast is a heavy one.

Image

 

33. CAREFULLY MONITOR THE FOOD YOU ARE EATING

One of the best ways to lose stomach fat fast is to try and eat more fat burning foods such as brown rice, wholegrains, vegetables, natural fruits, skimmed milk, lean poultry or meat, seafood and egg whites. I’m sure you already know all the ones to avoid as they are likely to be your favourites! The list includes pizzas, burgers, deepfried foods, bakery foods, fatty meats and all products that contain lots of sugar.  Learn which foods are the worst in 10 Worst Foods for Your Hips …

Image

 

34. EAT SLOWLY – IT’S AN EASY YET SURPRISINGLY EFFECTIVE WAY TO LOSE STOMACH FAT FAST

Get into the habit of taking smaller bites and chewing them slowly because that will ensure that you consume fewercalories and do not over-eat. How? Well, it takes our brain about 20 minutes to register that we are full. So if you don’t take your time to eat, chances are you’re eating past the point where you’re full. Eating slowly gives you enough time to realize when you should stop. It also leads to better digestion and let’s face it, you enjoy your food more that way.

Image

35. DO THE MOST EFFECTIVE EXERCISE EFFICIENTLY

Cardiovascular exercises are the ones that get your heart thumping and the fat burning, so cardio workouts such as brisk walking, jogging, aerobics and cycling are the best ways to lose stomach fat fast. If you exercise before breakfast your body will burn the excess fat in your body as there is no food available to burn, making it the best time to burn off that belly fat.  To know which ones are the most effective, check out these exercises for losing stomach fat fast.

Image

36. DRINK, DRINK AND DRINK AGAIN!

Keeping your body hydrated is essential to lose stomach fat fast because, if you are dehydrated your liver won’t function and the fat burning process won’t be as effective. Drink lots of water and also hot green tea neutralizes the effects of fatty foods.

Image

37. GET MORE SLEEP IF YOU WANT TO LOSE STOMACH FAT

If you are not sleeping at least 7-8 hours per night you will find it difficult to find the energy to work out and eat well. Studies show people who are constantly tired have slower metabolisms.  So, make sure you get a good night sleep every night!

Image

38. CUT DOWN OR ELIMINATE ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION

Because of the effects alcohol has on the liver, drinkingalcoholic drinks slows down the body’s natural fat burning process. An occasional glass of red wine is probably the best option as not only is it low-carb but it has some other health benefits.

Image

39. TAKE THE LONG WAY TO LOSE STOMACH FAT MORE RAPIDLY

Try to resist taking short cuts in order to increase your movement and metabolism. Park in the space furthest away from the entrance, take the stairs instead of the lift and when possible walk and leave the car at home.  This is definitely one of the best ways to lose stomach fat fast! See other great ideas on how you can burn more calories during the day!

Image

40. REDUCE YOUR SALT INTAKE

Excessive consumption of salt makes the body retain water. This makes the abdomen appear bloated. We can get enough salt from our diet without needing to add it to our food. Also junk food contains a lot of salt and is best eliminated in order to lose excess fat.

41. AVOID STRESS

You may find it surprising but stress can cause weight gain. Not just because we are more likely to stress eat, but when our body detects stress it releases a lot of hormones that cause changes in metabolism. Bad news for belly fat!  See how you can become stress-free with these 5 Easy and Cheap Techniques to Beat Stress.

42. STAY MOTIVATED TO LOSE STOMACH FAT FAST!

How can any of these best ways to lose stomach fat fast work if you’re not motivates? Think about what could help you stay motivated. Keeping a food diary, joining anexercise class or rewarding yourself for small successes are great ways to keep you on your toes.

Today I went on a sushi date with Emily! I love this girl, we only hang out once in awhile when she’s home from school and we do is go out to eat and we ALWAYS call them dates. Usually we go all out at Olive Garden but today, we treated ourselves to Sushi. She showed me a place in her town called Ocean Sushi.. really good!
I had:

Miso Soup –   70 calories
Shrimp Roll- 240 calories
Tuna Roll-    184 calories
Total-            494 calories

Each roll was 8 pieces so I was very content at the en of my meal… wasn’t stuffed. And it was cheap! 10 bux! a lunch special lol

I haven’t hit the gym yet, I’m planning to do a class at 5:30 called bodypump… its strength training and then following that class at 6:30 is Zumba!!  So, i’m going to be getting a good 2 hours in the gym later.
