So how are my New Year's goals going? Extremely well! I can proudly report that I have not had fast food since December 26th, the day I got food poisoning. While I can't say I have had breakfast every day (a difficult habit for me to adopt), I can say that all my meals have been from home and relatively un-processed. Last Monday I picked up a store bought rotisserie chicken and it provided chicken for homemade chicken salad sandwiches for lunch all week last week. I have been buying more fresh fruit and trying to snack on that, as well as string cheese, yogurt, nuts, and granola bars. I have made dinner every night since December 26th. Such an accomplishment for me!
As for my workouts, I am successfully mixing those up as well. I did 2 cardio workouts, 2 Pilates workouts and 1 Carmen Electra workout last week. I am not sure if it is mixing up workouts or the fact that I am trying to eat healthier but I swear my pants fit better and I feel less bloated. I haven't lost any weight but that was not my goal.
I have been researching eating healthier and I have come to my next switch in my diet. Coffee creamer. Google coffee creamer and see what comes up. Scary stuff. It's basically sweetened hydrogenated oil. Gross! I am working on my last bottle and then I am done. Switching to real cream in my coffee, calories be damned! I don't use that much anyway and with real cream, you really need just a smidge. I think the health benefits from not drinking hydrogenated oil more than make up for any calories.
Hopefully everyone out there is still doing well with their New Year's aspirations!
