31 Days Left…

Okay. I have a confession. I stopped doing Insanity, pretty when I wrote my last post. I was starting to feel ill, and then on top of it all, Pharmacy school was kicking into high gear and no matter what I did I was exhausted. I’d change into my work out clothes, lay down for a moment, and not wake up again hours later. But from the time that I did work out, I did lose a sufficient amount of weight and that made me pretty content, especially since it wasn’t just water weight.

I started off around 127 lbs, and then by the time I stopped Insanity, I was around 120. I’m pretty steady with my weight now, with just the water weight fluctuating and the immediate food intake. I try to weigh myself every morning when I wake up for a more consistent gauge of my weight. Most mornings I’m in the range of 118-120 lbs, so I’m set to go.

Hopefully, I’ll be starting up Insanity again when I move back home in Colorado for three months when I have my rotations, and follow through with it entirely. I just have to be a pharmacy intern for 40 hours a week, and have nothing else to do afterwards so being tired or not can’t be an excuse right? I’m more comfortable with my weight at the moment, this is the normal weight I’ve been the last decade or so, but in the last decade or so I keep saying that I want to lose some weight. My goal weight is 110 lbs, and for being 5′ 2″ standing at 119 lbs, I say that’s a reasonable goal. But we’ll see about how well I get to that mark.

But in any case, in 31 days I will be heading back to Colorado for two months of rotation (August/September) and then a month off before I start up classes again for Fall semester on the 29th of October. Huzzah! I’m super stoked for it and everything. Downside of it all is my apartment and car is going to be abandoned here for three months. With the abandonment, I’m trying to minimize my trips to the store and just eating the food that I have within the cabinets and fridge at the moment until I have nothing. I have a pretty decently stocked kitchen for a student who lives on their own, so for the next 31 days it’s eating whatever I have in my apartment! I also figure it’s a challenge to see how creative I can get with the basic things in my kitchen. The only time I’m letting myself go buy something at the store is if I need more fruits or fresh produce, both of which I require on a daily basis otherwise my meals just don’t seem complete.

Tonight’s Meal was Cold Ginger, Soy and Honey Sesame Noodles with some boneless/skinless chicken thigh that I marinaded with some fish sauce, sugar, garlic powder, and black pepper. On top of all of that, I had a side salad that consisted of Dole’s Classic Romaine blend and a Roma tomato with Ken’s Lite Asian Sesame with Ginger & Soy Dressing.

So there we have it! My dinner, it was actually pretty decent. the linguine I used was actually left overs from when I made spaghetti the other day and it was just sitting in my fridge waiting for me to eat it with something or another. I have no idea what I’m going to eat tomorrow or for the next 30 days, but so far I’m doing good.

I’m probably going to be relying heavily on Super Cook for the days to come as I start running out of ideas of food to make.
