  1. I used to HATE salmon. It was so gross. Then on a whim I made it myself on the grill. I then had to go out that night at 10pm to the closest 24hr store so that I could get more because the cravings for crispy salmon were THAT strong. I still remember how it tasted ;_;
  2. Day one: complete! Got in a kettlebell workout (love me some swings, hate me some Turkish get ups) Breakfast for the day was some coffee w/ coconut cream, a slice of veal and two clementines. Missed the veggies this meal but that's a-OK becaaaause Lunch was a salad with tilapia and Tessemae's balsamic dressing (my daily lunch now... I CRAVE this), half a cucumber, 1 Cup of cherry tomatoes, and a cup of strawberries. Normally I wuss out on extra veggies here. Dinner was roasted butternut squash (I like it on the moderately burnt side) with a
  3. In May, my family and I will be heading down to South Padre Island for some fun in the sun. Snorkeling, deep sea fishing, pirate cruises - the adventure of the year, to be sure! And for the first time ever, I have permission to do WHATEVER I want on the island between activities! Say whaaa!? And it only took 20 years. But, to get the most of your adventure, you need to feel good. Not just good, but GREAT! Headaches, aches and pains, fatigue - those will cramp your style. Ruin your fun. Hold you back from major adventuring. I know this. So, after a successful week of who
  4. I haven't really felt hungry since I had a migraine yesterday morning. Normally, I become absolutely ravenous. It was hard for me to finish my breakfast and I couldn't finish my lunch. I had to fight to get most of the shrimp in my lunch down, and I LOVE shrimp. And I'm NEVER EVER not hungry. What is this madness!?!
  5. As day 2 begins... "The Hangover" is real ;_;
  6. I completed the first day of my whole30! I honestly can't believe I actually made it! It's been SO long since I've managed even 1 day of any healthy eating. Seriously. At worst, I've just been binging, and at best I've caved and drank something like chocolate milk or fried chicken or fast food. Today I realized the difference between mind-hunger and real hunger, when I was craving chocolate something fierce (paired with an "OH, IM STARVINGGGGG") but all I had was an orange and I refused to eat it. I then realized that if I was ACTUALLY hungry I would've eaten whatever I
  7. I failed horribly during the challenge before last. The three simple things I wanted to commit to, I didn't. One of them was the simple act of eating breakfast. I couldn't even do *that*! Well, I've been trying to clean up my diet. I started with dinner - I said, no matter what, I would make a "healthy" dinner. For me and my vegetable hating ways, this meant something like fish and rice. And I had been managing to at least have an orange or two for breakfast, instead of just skipping it and drinking sugary coffee for lunch. Well, I was reading about whole 3
  8. So I've been trying to find something that would work for me for quite a while. For the longest time I tried to stick to veganism, but couldn't. My latest attempt at healthy eating has involved animal protein at dinner and that has made SO much difference in my "stick-to-it-iveness". However, I'm running out of ideas for the meat portion of my dinner. I prefer not to eat pork, and I eat red meat sparingly (usually lamb, because my lamb is to die for, but I'll eat basically any red meat). I don't consume dairy. I eat mostly seafood or chicken, with some variant of rice a

    Lame Update: Activate! Have been doing better on eating breakfast since my last post, but gosh if lunch isn't getting me! Also, I have discovered the glory of the Big Ass Salad. Mine in rather lame (HEB garden herb salad mix, cucumber, tomato, corn, and edamame) but it is SO filling and with some dressing it is so tasty.

    Not yet. I'm thinking they either knew it was a troll or were too afraid to answer. This may have to turn into a phone call... Anyhow! For the first week, I've managed all my goals except the breakfast/lunch. Really struggling with that. I'm just going to have to sit down and make them in advance since I'm sooooo lazy. My classes start on Tuesday and I'm SO SO SO excited. This semester I'm taking macro/micro econ and financial/managerial accounting and UGH, I can't wait. I finagled my dresser into a standing desk. Put my laptop on a 1ft tall jewelry box, stu
  11. This is probably a really lame woot but I'm really proud So I've had a fitbit for what, four days now? During those 4 days, I've tracked my food daily (with the fitbit app) and gotten to 15,000 steps. That probably doesn't seem like such a big deal, but today I had a donut and coffee. Normally when I do something like that, I get all sad and think "well today is out the window" and then go eat a few villages worth of food. But when I put it in the tracker, I realized that it was actually slightly less than what I would normally have for breakfast and lunch (I am te

    So today had some strange Noms in it! Laziness got the best of me and I didn't make breakfast or lunch. When I got to work, they had coffee and donuts so I had a pink frosted donut and coffee. Then for lunch, I was REALLY really hungry so I dug through the pantry and settled on vegan bacon bits that have been in there since before I started working here. Then I got home and took Beast and Co on a walk and hit my 10k steps. I'm going to up my step goal to 15k, I think. Then I had some leftover baked eel (so yummy...) and a handful of r

    Well we are going to find out, now that you gave me such a good idea!

    What I figured out was that on mine, as your activity raises for the day so does the the calorie allowance. For example, I hit 1600 calories this evening and it said that I should eat more, whereas this afternoon it told me that I had overeaten at 700 calories. The only difference was 10,000 steps (put the band on after work today), which changed the "out" number on the calories in vs calories out page. It's kind of clever but kind of strange o.o Now the only question to be had is if I will continue to stay motivated to get my steps in! Also, in the meanti

    (Out of character post, for ease of posting :P) Not "officially" starting until the 8th, but I'm doing decently okay - Bought a fitbit flex 2 on a whim to track my steps and it has worked well - I powered through my dog walks and rebounder to hit my goal. I'm thinking because I'm so competitive that it will work well for me! The odd thing though, is the food/calorie tracker tells me I've eaten too much once I hit 800 calories. Ignoring that of course as I know it's not true! I ordered an ankle band so that I can wear the fitbit to work - I work as a bather f
