A Collage of Fruits and Vegetables

I'd say today went fairly well. I managed to stay under my limit which happens to be 650 calories. For once I worked out on the weekend, which is something I hardly ever do so I am quite pleased with that. Cutting up and preparing food the night before helped loads and I am planning on doing it again for sure. I tried to eat mostly fruits and vegetables today but not exclusively. I also drank a butt-load of green and raspberry tea (with sweetener) to help fill me up. I'll try and keep this up for the rest of the week and slowly not eat anything but the food I've prepared to the night before. Not eating anything at all really effects my performance in ballet class so I'm thinking those days I'll try and eat super healthy foods like banana and peanut butter and maybe a tad of bitter chocolate right before class. Apparently it helps with energy levels. I want to be in terrific shape by the time I get pointe shoes so I'm trying to eat healthy but low in calories. This morning I did 40 minutes of the New York City Ballet workout 2 on youtube. There was a good core section and it was pretty similar to the way my classes are structured so that was nice. I'm thinking I'll do that or another ballet workout on days I don't have ballet class to further my improvement :)

I finally weighed myself after two weeks and it was a bit of a disappointment. The scale at my neighbors house said 119.2 pounds so that's only a 0.2 drop in two weeks. Next Saturday I'll make sure that I'm in the 18 range. This coming week will be a lot better than the last one. I'll get organized and exercise and stretch every night. Spring break is in three weeks and I want to be a few pounds lighter by then so I better start moving my ass!

Now, I know that on the Skinny Girl Diet calories from fruit and vegetables don't count but I felt like adding them just 'cause :P
I'm off to go prepare some more snacks for tomorrow! I'll be skinny. Just you wait and see ;)


  1. great job, cali! :] your little idea of preparing the night before seems wonderful, i gotta try it.. i'd be much more likely to stick to certain foods and amounts if i planned out my intake for the next day. don't be too disheartened by -0.2, a loss is still a loss after all! stay strong <3

    1. Thanks :) You're right, a loss is still a loss even if it's tiny. I'll keep that in mind so I don't go into failure mode.....
