I’m looking high-protein recipe ideas because apparently I don’t get enough protein and that’s why I’m always effing hungry. I don’t feel like Googling, so if you would be so kind… leave me some links! :)
Frozen yogurt. Obviously.
The newest Manhattan location of Yogurtland opens TODAY on Columbus Avenue and 99th street on the Upper West Side. I was slightly addicted to 99 Handles last summer so having a frozen yogurt place essentially right around the corner from me is going to be a really, really
bad awesome thing.
According to the press release: “To celebrate the new Yogurtland location, guests at this location will receive free ounces of yogurt as the temperature drops. When the temperature is between 40 – 50 degrees, guests will receive 2 ounces free. Temperatures between 35 – 40 degrees mean 3 free ounces, and between 30 – 34 degrees will mean 4 free ounces. If the temperature drops below 29 degrees, this location will offer guests 5 ounces of free yogurt. Daily temperatures reported by The Weather Channel will serve as the official temperatures for the promotion.”
So, at 11am, check the temperature and get over there. I’ll be by after work and hopefully it will still be 9*!
So I’ve decided to start using MyFitnessPal again. It’s almost summertime and I feel like my snacking has been out of control lately.
Even though I run up and down the stairs in between our two offices dozens of times a day, I also sit at my desk a lot. And I think about food WAY too much. I feel like I’m always thinking about my next meal. And I’m snacking at my desk all the time.
Don’t get me wrong: I really like how I look right now. I think I look great. But I’d like it to stay that way too. Dropping 5-10 more pounds wouldn’t hurt either but it’s not that important to me.
I still go to yoga 3-4 times every week and run maybe once a week. I also find myself walking a LOT now that the weather is nice. I’ll walk 35 blocks to my 9:15am yoga class on Saturday mornings and if I’m not in a rush to be anywhere, I’ll walk the 35 blocks home.
I love walking. Especially in the city.
I guess I’m starting with MFP again to start eating (and snacking on) the foods that keep me full and feeling good again.
But in the meantime: does anyone have any tips to keep my mind off food while I’m at my desk?
I’m trying to calorie-count, and subsequently lose weight, for the first time ever. It’s really only because I’m curious of how much I eat every day. And I’m also skeptical about whether or not I could ever lose weight (I always assumed no). But one of my friends was all, “It’s really easy, you just have to have will power.” So I’m trying. Why not, right?
I don’t feel like I have to lose weight and I’m afraid of losing my ass and boobs, but who knows where the weight (if any) will be lost at all.
I’m keeping a food journal and aiming for 1200 calories a day (yesterday I unknowingly ingested 1500, oops). I was always taught in school while growing up that we needed 2000 calories a day (maximum). I guess that’s why the youth of America is all obese now? I’m also watching my sodium intake since that corresponds with a lot of water weight. So, I’m switching from soy milk (about 150mg of sodium/glass) to coconut water (0-15mg of sodium/glass). I think I had about 1000 calories today (Wednesday).
Does anyone have any other tips/advice?
