Damn, I'm A Hungry Girl!
No, seriously I'm starving here...
I've been trying to eat correctly while getting my black sweat on and I'm going a little crazy. Just a little bit...
Sometimes it's easy to forget that there is a price to pay when you actually start doing what you're supposed to do to get the results you want. Oprah's trainer Bob Greene said on her show that when you get a little hungry late in the evening, that's when your body is burning fat (or something like that.) So that's what I'm thinking about around this time (11 pm to midnight) and later when I start avoiding my late night refrigerator trips, Bob said that when you get that "Hmmm, I'd like a little snack" feeling in your stomach, that means that your body is burning calories...
Bob... you better be right man!
It doesn't help that my apartment is a SWEAT BOX! I can't afford my gym right now, so my treadmill and my FIRM step have had to do the job.
And it doesn't help that I'm still trying to finish my book. I can barely concentrate at home, so I've found myself using my school's facilities - and why not since I am paying through the nose to go there!
It does help that I'm not the only one on the weight loss trail - Glib Gurl and Avin have chronicled their respective weight loss adventures too.
I've lost a lot of weight before - about 50 pounds in my early twenties that came roaring back the minute I hit my early thirties. Thankfully, I'm very toned - but I can do better. Besides, I'm pushing 40 and it's the wise thing to do. I want to be in good shape when I have children one day, I don't want to develop diabetes -- and I want to look Fabulous. Off the charts... Smashing.
Which reminds me, I need to rinse my mask off now. And finish my hair... and stay out of the refrigerator.
