iread the sonoma diet book yesterday, and have come up wtih some sort of new year's diet that takes my favorite parts of what i learned from south beach (like ricotta creams) and my favorite parts of sonoma(although i had to go to a chinese lunch for new years that didn't let me follow it, but oh well). relatively low carb without being too stingy on carbs for breakfast. anyway, this is what i have eaten so far:
1 cup puffins cereal = 120
milk = 40
fresh mozzerella = 160
south beach lunch = 220
1 cup fat free ricotta = 90
then, dinner will be some kind of grilled meat and a big salad
my snack after my after dinner workout later might be a protein shake (i need to get some tofu for that)
workout: 45 mins of cardio, plus 200 situps/30 push ups/100 squats
abs: 25 of each
vertical leg cruches
out and over
i just spent 8 days in pittsburgh with my boyfriend, and it was wonderful fun, but i gained some weight without being to exercise every day and being able to choose my foods (a lot of times his mom cooked, and i just had to eat it or look like a total bitch). anyway, i have a little over 2 weeks before classes begin, and i'm just looking to make some basic progress. starting tomorrow, i need to start measuring my waist every day- i'm too scared to get on a scale right now, i think it would throw me into deep depression.
the worst part is that i didn't need to gain anymore weight- i gained weight during finals because all i did was study (no time to workout) and i binged because of the stress LIKE WOAH. so, pretty much, i'm physically a wreck right now.
