I’m feeling so proud of this right now! I always get a potato, bean, & rice burrito from Taco Bell…I shall not be a customer any longer! Lol.

This was really easy to make:
1 Spinach Wrap
½ cup Rice
½ cup Black Beans
1 Veggie Patty (cut into strips)
½ cup potatoes
2 tbsp of Red Sauce
Optional: hot sauce/other condiments

Macros:
Fat: 6g

Protein: 25g

Definitely a great meal if you want to be full without the groggy feeling!

What I Ate Today// Woke up around lunch-time & made a salad (romaine, purple cabbage, assorted peppers, & tomatoes). For lunch, I made a huge black bean burrito w/rice & lots of seasonings on a spinach wrap. For dinner, I’m having raw oats with peanut-butter & jelly! Probably my favorite flavor so far! I was being too lazy to hit the gym, but I’m heading out soon to go dancing with some friends! I’ll probably have a banana or two on the way there. I hope your weekend has been amazing so far!💕

My Life so far with MyFitnessPal

Me: Oh, it keeps track of water.
Me: So far I had 2 cups of water.
Me: Let’s see, I had another cup.
Me: 2 more cups of water…
Me: Shit. When did I last log in water?  I think I had two cups since then.
Me: I think I had another cup.
Me: THIS IS TOO STRESSFUL TO REMEMBER. WHY. WHY DO I NEED TO DO THIS.

Me: Today I’ve had grapefuit, broccoli, bell peppers, raspberries…
MFP: These foods are a good source of Vitamin C!
MFP: You’ve gone over 200% of your Vitamin C amount!
Me: Oh shut up.

On the weekend…
MFP: You haven’t logged in your breakfast today! Do you want to do it now?
Me: Breakfast?  I woke up at 10:30…

On a non-workout day…
Me: I am done with my log today.
MFP: You’re under your calorie count by 120+ calories. Eating is important blah blah blah…
Me: Oh geezus…I didn’t workout today.  Gimmie a break.

On a workout day…
MFP: 
You only have 120ish calories left today!!!!!
Me: Calm yourself.
Me: *Logs workout*
MFP: You can have another 560 calories today.
Me: See? Geeze.

Me: I just ate an apple…
MFP: Did you have a cup worth?
Me: Huh? I don’t know…
MFP: Was it apple sauce?
Me: No…
MFP: Was it an apple pie?
Me: No!
MFP: How about a strudel?
Me: IT WAS A PLAIN RAW APPLE.
MFP: Was it raw with skin? Medium size 1 apple?
Me: WHY WASN’T THIS LISTED FIRST?!

#progresspic for January -> August . 174lbs to 122lbs and I feel SO much better physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It was all from tracking calories in #myfitnesspal with a bit of #running and weights. There are no shortcuts or miracle products! Just discipline and desire.

Shout out to #dietbet for helping with the motivation and #fitbit and #garmin for keeping me aware of my activity levels. Also @senita for the dope floral gear.

Ok so this first picture was probably taken March 24th - a week after I started trying to lose weight (130lbs) and the second picture is today (123lbs)! I still have a little way to go yet but I can now safely say that my BMI is in the healthy zone! It’s also the first time in years that I can say I’m in the 8st region!

Had an exam today, hope I passed.

But I had to provide two forms of identification to take the exam.

I use my current and expired drivers license. The left photo is of my current drivers license. When I pulled it out it made me laugh, barely recognised my self.

The right is a current photo. The two are about 3 years apart I think.

I need to say A Thing or Two or Seven:

I don’t believe in “earning calories” by working out.
I lift weights to get beastly.
I do tabatas because they’re good for my ticker.
I walk the dogs because all three of us dig it.
I’m done with bingeing and restricting.
I will never again “earn” or “atone for” my food with exercise.
If I’m hungry, I’ll eat, and, regardless of what my food-tracking app says, birthday cake will always go where it belongs: in my cakehole.
