Fat Ass Friday: An Update

Um... I forgot to weigh myself this morning, so you're not getting one of those updates today.  How about I let you know how my 21 Days to a Lifestyle Change is coming along?

My Goals were: 
  • Give up candy/chocolate entirely. I did it with soda and have no desire to drink the stuff anymore, I can do it with candy now too. I'm going to avoid things like cookies and other sweets too.
  • Choose healthy options when I eat.  Even when I go out to eat with friends.
  • Exercise (some form of physical activity that works up a sweat) for at least 30 minutes, every day.
  • Watch my calories-and keep track of everything I eat.
  • Watch my carbs-when bread is involved (which I plan on limiting) it must be wholegrain/multi-grain.
  • Drink 8 glasses of water a day (why do I struggle so hard with this?)
  • Post once a week on my progress. I think I'll link up with Brandy's Fat Ass Friday
My Progress:
  • I haven't had any candy at all! Great, right?  I did have a few bites of cake... and might again tonight... I haven't made up my mind.
  • I have been eating really healthy.  With the exception of the chocolate Mole the other night, it's been mostly parfaits and low carb meals full of veggies and boiled eggs.
  • Exercise = Epic fail.  I've been trying to walk around more-but otherwise I haven't gone out of my way to do anything.  Epic epic epic fail.
  • I haven't really been counting calories, but I've been paying more attention to what I put in my mouth-so I really haven't felt the need to.  I think I'll take this off the list.
  • The water... Some days are good, some days I totally space it-still need to work on this!
  • I'm posting right now!
This week I need to work more on:
  • Getting up and working out or doing something physical! Geez Ang, get it together!
  • Drink more water! 
How is your progress coming along?

I've only worked out 3 days of this week so far, and pulled a muscle in my abdomen so now I'm waiting to heal before doing core exercises again. :(

I have been good about eating healthy, but maybe not as good about portion control. I've also gained 1.6 pounds this week. Balls.

Honestly? I'm doing okay. Exercise isn't my issue but eating is. I probably won't blog about it b/c my mom reads my blog...ugh.

Yup. I'm doing okay. If I can get the exercise down, I'll be happy. I know that eventually the eating will fall into place too. I just have to watch myself.

Exercise can be tough for me to keep up with, too. But, I just started the 30 Day Shred with some others on MyFitnessPal and I'm on Day 4 today!
