Some point last I was reading in a magazine an article about “How Celebrity Women Stay Fit”. I have never heard such STUPID advice in all my life. Of course there’s the usual thing that they get all their meals cooked by a specific chef who has a masters in yada yada or that they have a trainer come to their home 5 days of week. Which is exactly what a normal person with 9-5 job & bills wants to hear? Right? Nope.
Well they added some icing to the cake. They stated that actress Kendra Wilson will lick Cheese Doodles to stay fit. WHAT??? She doesn’t eat the whole thing just licks it clean so she feels like she’s eaten it because she has the taste in her mouth. That is the MOST RIDICOLOUS thing I’ve ever heard as advice to the normal women of the world trying to lose some weight before the holidays. So we’re supposed to lick our food but not eat it & just throw it away? Someone must have been sick this day or they were desperate to fill in some space on the mostly white article page. Geez.
Raise your hand if your NOT going to start just licking your food! *RAISING MY HAND UP HIGH*. So what are you going to do? Hmmm….
In my Weekly Goals that I’ve been trying to complete for a few months now one was: Watching what I eat & trying to exercise more regularly. It has been a success because my jeans are a lil bit loser & my shirts are not so tight and the dreaded scale has moved slowly down. Here’s how I’ve been doing it:
1.) Food SWAP: For the same $5 bucks it would cost to buy a Taco Bell chicken quesadilla with sour cream & cinnamon twists I will INSTEAD go buy a Subway 6” Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki Sandwich on a flatbread. Calorie difference: Swap 40gs of Fat for Taco Bell to 5g of fat for the Subway Sandwhich.
2.) Go to the Gym at least 2 times a week.
3.) WALKING. So under-rated. I go to the Mall & walk around the whole thing while I shop. Just getting out of the house & not sitting around doing nothing does help your diet.
4.) Not Depriving Myself: My job got munchkins the other day so I had 1. I still enjoyed a lil something & didn’t feel left out & satisfied that craving.
5.) Eating Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner. If you eat all three meals you will be less likely to snack heavily in between.
6.) Eat something at that 3pm Wall. Everyone’s energy drops around then, so have an apple or a small snack.
7.) I stopped drinking Beer. I will drink a glass a wine or alcohol instead. Beer is very fattening.
8.) I did a FOOD Journal for a WEEK & realized all I was eating was Taco Bell, Bacon & Chinese food. I haven’t had either of those in 2 weeks.
9.) I stopped eating before I went to bed.
10.) Serving Size: On everything there is a serving size. Be aware of it.
