the last 7 months of my life have been kind of a whirlwind. i debated on whether or not to actually write novels in here on what’s gone on, but honestly, if you know me, then you already know. so instead of one giant update.. i’m simply just continuing :)
florida is fabulous and i’ve never been happier. if you follow my facebook or twitter… then you are more than aware. lol.
my lease is up in august, and dan and i are getting a place in celebration. if you don’t know where celebration is, you need to. it’s basically like pleasantville. pies and scones and white picket fences included. seriously. i’ve mentioned it in prior entries, and i always wanted to live there. now i finally have a reason to i guess. either way, i’m extremely excited.
in other news, i lost 15lbs in the last 6 weeks. pat on my back? don’t mind if i do. heh.
i’ve just been eating a ton of salad, low-sodium/low fat soup, and smoothies. the smoothies are what have helped so much. i started out on this juicing detox type of thing for the first 5 days, and then i switched on my own. for breakfast almost every day now, i make a smoothie. (um, by the way, the magic bullet is a godsend. just sayin.)
anyway, i use fresh strawberries and bananas, a small amount of nonfat milk, ice, and a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder. that keeps me full until lunch (with added bottles of water of course), and then i have a salad. for dinner its either soup, salad, or salad and grilled chicken. if i’m still hungry throughout the day, i’ll have a cheese stick or an apple for a snack. mind you, i haven’t done one ounce of exercise in the last 6 weeks either. i’m gonna start adding it in though next week so the weight loss can go faster and i could also tone up like a mofo. but as for the food, i’ve gone out a few times, had some drinks, etc, and i’m still losing regardless of what i ate or drank while out. so that’s a plus.
i’ve been lazy trying to go through low cal recipes, desserts, etc… otherwise i’d be eating more than just the above. haha.
but i’ll get creative soon. its just been so easy to open a bag of lettuce or a can of soup, so its become like a habit now, lol.
i added my instagrams to the pics page above so that way they update automatically whenever i post. random, but that was more just me thinking out loud.
other than that… at the request of a dear friend earlier today, i’m officially back on here and will make sure to get to this daily.
that also happened.
