So my mom and I were stranded in town and it had been a long day. Usually we plan out day accordingly and always pack our food so we don’t have to buy anything. Long story short, the day didn’t go as planned so our choices for food was either McDonalds, Dairy Queen or Dunkin Doughnuts…. Since the ladder of the three has at least some nutritious items, we chose DD.
We were both so hungry and I forgot my iPod touch in the car. Since my eyes were bigger than my stomach I got a bagel and veggie low fat cream cheese as well as a vanilla bran coolata. It was until after I at the bagel and drank most of the coolata did I remember to track my points. I couldn’t believe it! Both items came to a grand total of 31 points which two points OVER my daily count! I wound filling up on veggies and fruit and had to take 6points from my weekly points in order to have dinner.
Lesson? It should have been either the bagel or the coolata, but not both. The individual items were meals in them selves!
Anonymous asked: Hey, here's some swimming advice. When it feels like you cant breath, and you cant keep going, just take it easy. Never stop, just slow down a bit and get your breath back a bit. This is what my coaches make me do and its really helpful
Thank you SO much for the advice! Every little bit helps. I’m really eager to start :)

I don’t think I can handle another episode
So I’ve recently been sucked in to korean drama and…this literally made my day.
So I have literally spent well over a month off of tumblr. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to be on tumblr, but because I’ve been out of state rethinking life and going over stuff……
You see, since I broke my foot, it was the most difficult thing not being able to move and trying to lose weight. Of course with boredom there comes the dreaded binges. Without even realizing it, I gained back in the past month all but ten pounds of what I lost during my month long juice fast in January. In a state of depression it only got worse from there, but lets not get into that part….
I spent some quality time with my sister who not only lost weight, but maintained it after two babies and during her third pregnancy still lost weight (just a couple pounds, but still!) and she’s now down to a size 8 when she use to be a size 16. She did weight watchers, which I always wanted to do, but I never had the money for it. She began to teach me “weight watcher ways” and out of curiosity one day I found iTrack Bites, an app on my iPod touch, that is exactly the same as Weight Watchers only without the monthly fees. It did cost money, but it was a one time $2.99 as compared to the $18 per month with weight watchers.
So I’ve begun that and in a week I’ve lost three pounds. I’m also walking again (well limping) but I cannot run. At college, a new one this coming semester, they have a swimming pool. I have been told that taking up swimming (rather than my beloved running) will help my foot recover and it will be good therapy for it. It will be a while before I can do pointe again (which also bent me into a strong state of depression because of all the muscle mass in my right calf has nearly completely been lost). Also, I’ve read that swimming is one of the best forms of exercise because of the fact you are weightless and yet you literally work all the muscles in the body, which is awesome! I bought a sports swimsuit so I’m all hyped up! If there are any swimmers out there who have advice for me, by all means I would love it.
Also, any weight watchers bloggers out there, I would love it if you followed me and I would of course follow you too!
Wish me luck on my new endeavors! And now that I’m home I’ll post more ;)
Finally a good, understandable and compact video about calories, good and bad food. It really does make a difference whether you eat 200 calories of apple or 200 calories of pizza. Think about it!
This hit me right in the heart <3
What’s your excuse?
It’s not easy in the sense that I’m using new muscles and doing very different things. It’s rather invigorating as I am conditioning and strengthening new muscles. Here’s a tip for those, like me, who are on a tight budget:
Rather than buying a thigh master or a Pilates ball, I’m using my pillow folded into fours. Works great!
I’m also stretching out my splits everyday on the floor. Seeing as how I’m not dancing for a month and a half, it’s probably important I do that too!
