Good: Just discovered we have full-grown papaya trees in the backyard. Organic fruit supply, ahoy! #littlefitblrthings
Bad: I only just discovered it. Like, I’ve lived here for years (well, on and off because of college) and I never wandered out in the backyard because that’s where my mom grows so many plants and the place is so quiet, it creeps me out sometimes.
Good: I’m on a fruit detox—I do it every two weeks because I find that it helps my body feel great. So, after drinking a natural herbal laxative last night and starting fresh in the morning, I’ve had three bananas and a whole papaya less than halfway through the day. I feel awesome so far.
Bad: My mom just went grocery shopping and bought boxes of microwave popcorn and bags of chips. She knows I’m eating healthy, but my brother just arrived and is staying home for the next several months or so, and he’s the type who doesn’t get fat no matter how much he eats, nor does he care what he eats since he just noms on everything, healthful or not. Chips and microwave popcorn are his favorite snacks. When I began eating clean, there weren’t any of those at home so now I’m having a hard time looking at those boxes of popcorn in the eye (in the barcode?) and saying no. Anyway, today I’m supposed to eat nothing but fruit for my detox, but OMG the cheesy, buttery popcorn. So orange and yellow and salty and good. I can’t deal with it.
Ate too much yesterday and tried doing some damage control (green tea, nice long walk) that had the subtlest effects. So what I did was:
And now I can resume my duties as a fit, healthy, un-bloated, exercise-loving person. Lesson learned: don’t stress. Sleep over it.
It was going so well. Good breakfast, good TF workout, good lunch… then a handful of chocolate wafers with 150 calories apiece. No biggie, though. I’m drinking green tea, walking it off later, and going to sleep to wake up with a clear slate tomorrow.
(Those were some damn good wafers though. I will never fail to appreciate the existence of chocolate. Thanks, Ixcacao!)
What’s your UGW? When do you expect to reach it?
The info on my blog says 110, but I’m seriously rethinking that. Over the past few weeks I’ve been exercising and eating well enough for me to feel really, really good about myself at this point. I’ve stopped counting my calories because everything I’ve been eating is clean, and I feel no need to track if I go beyond or below the 1200 daily limit anymore. Right now I’m burning fat and building muscle at the same time, so my weight doesn’t really matter as long as I know I’m fit (yeah, following legit fitspo blogs—not thinspo/exercise-and-calorie-obsessed blogs—has that effect).
If I reach 110 lbs then that’s great, but I wouldn’t mind being a toned 115 to 120-lb, 5’4.5” entity in 2 months.
Actually, I think I prefer the latter over the former (as long as I have rockin’ abs, haha).
