I am eating better these days. More fruits and veggies. I have been avoiding the gym, that is going to be the next step.
Has anyone seen this? Anorexic Woman at the Gym Looking Good . The funny thing is at my gym there is a girl who is clearly anorexic. I know because she was at the last gym I was at and the trainer told me that she was asked to leave because she was at the gym for hours at a time. She goes hard. Five hours + at the gym everyday giving 150% for the whole time. I know that this isn't the topic of the article but do gyms have the right to ask someone to leave if they think they are working out too much? DISCUSS.

HELLOOOOOOO! I know that I have been MIA for a bit. I stepped on the scale this morning and saw a number that I haven't seen in years (not in a good way). This kicked some sense in my ass. I need to get my shit together and stop playing like I can eat whatever the hell I want.
I am going to sit down tonight and make a plan as to what I am going to do to get back into the mind set where I care. Because I have not been caring about myself lately and that is not right. I will let you know what this plan consists of tomorrow.
Have a great day!

Last night I attended step class. I forgot how fun it is. This class was a bit advanced and they have been working on the routine for 4 weeks, but I am really proud with what I did. I am pretty rhythmic and can pick up routines easily so I think that I did a really great job with the choreography. Especially with all the turns and the crossover moves. I love that step not only works your body but it also works your mind because you have to pay attention at all the steps and remember the choreography.
This morning I did an hour of walking incline on the treadmill and I am going hit bootcamp this evening.
Can I just rant a bit about the Biggest Loser? This is the first time that I have actually watched the show from beginning to end. Last night was the makeover episode in which the gave each of the remaining contestants a new look. The thing that REALLY irked me was that all the women were trying on new clothes in WAY smaller sizes that they had ever worn and all they are saying is, "I could have never worn a cute dress like this when I was bigger" or "They don't make cute things like this in my size/it doesn't look good on me in my size". Don't get me wrong I see where they are coming from, but I just have to be a bit mad that they COULD have worn cute stuff at a bigger size. I see so many blogs of beautiful women who are bigger that are SO stylish it is unbelievable. I have seen women that are more stylish that most people twice their size. I think that you can be bigger and still dress like a boss.
My Biggest Loser Spring Break is a success so far and I am down almost 5 pounds *high five* I have a 7K run in my future tomorrow and I think that I am going to hit up hot yoga with one of the free passes that I acquired.
I am really happy with the progress that I am making and I am just hoping that I can keep it up. I made some honey mustard salmon for dinner so I will pair that with some cauliflower.
Have a great day!

I also hit the gym.
I am really proud of myself.
This morning I hit the gym after having some grapes for breakfast. I had the rest of the fish for lunch. There is this step class this evening that I am going to try and get to.
Yesterday, I sat down and made a grocery list as well as list of possible breakfasts and snacks. There are the areas that I have issues.
- Omelettes with turkey bacon
- breakfast burrito (scrambled eggs with thyme, a bit of shredded cheese and salsa in a wrap)
- Mini frittatas
- Greek yoghurt
- String cheese
- Dried Fruit
- frozen yoghurt
I have also been going through my old issues of Oxygen magazine to get food tips.
I think that I am on the right track, wish me luck.
