I pack my own healthy snacks and I take a daily multivitamin, calcium with vitamin D and fish oil. When I'm sick I take extra vitamin c and zinc. I take whey when I work out or don't eat enough during the night shift. I avoid munching on unhealthy snacks.
I work at 11pm. I have 5-6 patients so im always running around hardly sitting down some days. I drink one cup coffee no sugar non fat flavor cream. I try to drink green tea and i always drink lots of water.
When im done with work I work out cardio/weight train 3-4x a week. If i feel unmotivated i take Jac3d. I feel like my work outs are efficient I don't waste time. I usually feel accomplish. After working out i take whey protein.
I usually go to bed by 1pm. I avoid eating meals before beds. That has helped a lot with my weight loss so far. I lost 10 lbs in 6 months. I was plateauing for 3 months so avoiding big meals before dinner has helped me.
I have lost weight but I feel like im stuck again. I admit on my days off i take a break from exercise and cheat. I do love food. Im always on Yelp trying new places. Ive come a long way as to portion control and eating smaller meals. I know in the food department i need to bucket down if i wanna lose weight. I hate that word... Diet. But I do believe in being healthy so gotta do what I gotta do right to be healthy.
I enlist the help of the iPhone app Lose It. I never calorie count and meal plan all I did in the past was just eat healthy and work out. In the 3 days of food journaling so far i never realized how much calories of food i take in. Now I'm trying to be more thoughtful of the foods I'm taking in to nourish my body.
So this will be interesting. Hope I can loose a little more.
