my body is being a little bitch right now.
sorry for the harsh language so early in the morning but it’s true. for almost two weeks now i’ve been 1 stupid pound away from mile marker 15 lbs that its really starting to tick me off. not that i’m not relieved to be maintaing the current loss i just want to hit that magic 15 and move on to that magic 20 ya know?
i’ve been continuing to go to the wellness center in fact tonight will be my second to last appointment and she continues to check my progress via my fitness pal app. does anyone use that? if so friend me username:ahoppen. and here is what it comes down to really. two things.
1. i’m eating too many carbs
2. i’m eating at restaurants too much again
it’s really simple. when i eat lunch out or dinner out i do not lose. i don’t necessarily gain because i still make healthy choices, i just don’t continue the loser journey.
according to my fitness pal i’m eating too many carbs. and not even the bread. too much fruit, grains (even though it’s quinoa and farrow. a gal just can’t catch a break. i can honestly see why people think they are eating healthy and are not losing weight.
i had lunch out at electric cheetah the other day. one of my very favorite restaurants. it was quinoa, black beans and a bunch of roasted veggies. there was literally at least two cups of quinoa on the “salad”. do you know the nutrition facts for quinoa?
1 cup of organic quinoa
4 grams of fat
so if i ate the entire 2 cups i would have had over a 600 calorie salad and almost 100 carbs. holy shiznit yo!
food and “health” food is sneaky. i’m not saying that quinoa is the devil. i’m saying a cup of quinoa is the devil and two cups of quinoa is ultimate satan. and they label that a salad. i might as well ordered a big mac. (satans cousin). see what i’m getting at here? it’s no wonder america is obese.
we get these healthy foods pushed at us but are taught no portion control or moderation. and no offense to electric cheetah your still my dude. i ordered the quinoa salad. i just didn’t eat all of it. even though i could of. because it was fricken delicious.
