The last couple of months feel as though they have flown by! Monday night, after a relaxing weekend, I realized that I had to study for a mid-term that I had on Tuesday. A mid-term!
I spent most of the day studying for the test, and I’m not sure if I did well or not. Many of my classmates weren’t sure if they aced it or failed, and we all have to wait to find out until next week.
As I was studying today, I also realized that I am almost a week into my 90 Days of Change commitment, and I’m doing really well with it. I have successfully increased my protein intake, having at least 100g per day, and I’ve also limited my carb intake and sugars.
It’s not exactly easy, but it’s not as hard as I’ve made it in my mind. I have turned down the opportunity to eat a burger and fries, opting to eat a salad at home, and when I go out, I drink sparkling water instead of alcohol.
I’ve also gotten more creative with what I’m eating. I’ve made some interesting, high-protein salads that were filling and delicious. My favorite right now is the taco salad that featured 30g of protein and less than 400 calories.
I’ve been eating about 1,200 calories a day, though my focus has really just been on consuming protein and nutrients while limiting sugar and cutting out most processed carbs. I feel good, and I have lost nine pounds so far.
I can’t explain why 90 days of healthy food seems so attainable, but it does. Taking smaller steps makes it all feel less intimidating so I’ll focus on my next goal after I reach this one.
How are you doing with your goals?
