The Boyfriend 15lbs.....

Pin It
Julia and I really try to focus our blog on DIY crafts, recipes, and southern fun.  But I would like to switch gears a bit.  Sorry in advance to the BF - but I am going to blame him for my weight gain! 

The BF and I have been together for over a year and in that time I have gained 6lbs.  I attribute this to our dates which seem to be focused on food and drinks.  And the fact that I think I can eat as much as he can.  My clothes are snug and I just feel unhappy with how I look.  

In an effort to keep my self accountable for everything I do and eat, I am going to add a "Weight and Fitness" tab to the blog.  I will keep you updated on what I eat each day and how much I exercise. 

Stats:

I am a petite person, only 5'3".  Last year I weighed 108 lbs.

This year I weigh 114 lbs.  It's amazing how an extra 6lbs can make you feel.

Monday, February 6th:

Food for the day: chai tea (TJ's mix with hot water); 2 cuties; fat free cottage cheese and pineapple chunks; romaine salad with garbanzo beans, peanuts, cucumber, carrots, swiss cheese and sundried tomato dressing; and a Healthy Choice chicken primavera. 

Workout: 45 min Spin Class, 17.5 miles

Tuesday, February 7th:

Food for the day:  chai tea; 2 cuties; maple & brown sugar oatmeal; white cheddar rice cakes, wheat thins & laughing cow cheese

Workout:  40 mins. on the eliptical, about 3.1 miles

I am not an expert in healthy diets or work out routines.  My goal is to figure out a balanced/healthy lifestyle that works for me.
