I LOVE this place. I walk everywhere. I'm not eating out as much and when I do it's all very light. My weight is down to 138.6 from 144. I'm averaging about 1600 calories a day, if that. I'm trying to eat as little as I can at work and make a good dinner and breakfast at home. I haven't had a binge. Hurray!!
I don't think I'm going to do Leigh's program like I originally thought I would. I think at this point I need to keep working out, walking as much as I can (and really I'm forced to walk since I don't have a car), and keep my calories down. I'm busy during the day so I don't think so much about food. If I can keep this habit built into my schedule it will be great and I can get this weight off.
I normally hate running but it is fun around here. I ran to the White House, to the National Mall, etc. It's amazing. A fun destination is definitely keeping it interesting.
I'm still keeping track of my points every day and for now that's enough for me. I don't need to obsess as much as I have in the past and truthfully I just don't have time.
DC was just voted like the healthiest city and I totally get it. You walk everywhere, people are out doing things all the time. I went to the Farmers Market in Dupont Circle on Sunday and it was packed. Everyone was out supporting the farmers and buying really healthy food.
Can I tell you how in heaven I am at the grocery stores now?? Being in Mexico for 6 months really made me appreciate a lot here.
I checked out a gym across the street from me and I can't decide if I should join or not. I'm leaning towards joining it even though it's pricey. It's so convenient, they offer tons of classes, and it's not very crowded. It's a privately owned gym. I just feel like I'm spending so much more money here. BUT I always say that it's worth spending extra money on health and fitness.
That's all for now! I'm trying to update as much as I can but I've been super busy.
