I really can’t believe it’s been that long. It finally feels I have graduated from the “dieting” phase to lifestyle phase. With this rejuvenation I’ve gotten since last week. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that I ever want to just eat anything and everything anymore. I’ve caught myself recently thinking about what I wish I could eat (especially bad for you pizza and stuff like that) but then I found this picture:
(I still cringe every time I see this picture.) This was my Junior year of college. I was miserable, constantly uncomfortable, and lazy… but I ate anything I wanted to. I had no food filter. If it looked good, I ate it. It was a dark time for me and I had almost lost hope at this point. I was really ready to give it up and just get fatter and fatter until I just died. Thankfully, one day (about 140 days ago to be exact) I decided that this was not me. This is not the Nathan that I knew. The skinny Nathan finally decided that he was going to do anything to get the weight off and live the life he wanted before it was too late. Now here I am, 64 pounds later (I’m not sure how much I weighed in this picture, but my guess is the 370’s-380’s,) still chugging along to Healthytown. Alright (wiping away some tears) let’s get down to food stuff.
Breakfast: I just had a bowl of Kashi Berry Crisp and milk for 4 points. When we got on campus, I got an iced caramel machiatto for 3 points. Hooray for caffeine!
Lunch: I didn’t have much time between class and internship, so I went to the on campus convenient store with my friend Chip to get some lunch. I had one of those awesome Sabra hummus and pretzels packs which was so awesome and really filling. It was 8 points.
Dinner: By 5:00, we were both really hungry so we went to Chipotle since we sadly both had the points. I had the vegetarian burrito bowl with black beans, rice, peppers, salsa, cheese, guacamole and sour cream on the side. The bowl is a lot more guts than a burrito has so it’s the better deal, plus with bowl you don’t have the extra points of the tortilla! Overall, it was 16 filling points.
Exercise: I did a 30 minute circuit on Wii Fit. It was a lot of fun (especially the yoga poses. I really miss going to yoga!) but after, I accidentally did the free step, not knowing it was 10 minutes of stepping. So that was fun too! I did 3 points worth of exercise.
Dessert: Megan has been studying for what seems like the past 48 hours so she finally took a break and we went to Hiro’s for some frozen yogurt. I’m back to eating fruit with my yogurt instead of candy and it was a lot better. It was 3 points of deliciousness.
Overall, I got to 34 points but with the exercise points so I’m good. See ya tomorrow.
