FAGE fantastic

26 Mar

I could eat FAGE all day. One container is only 80 calories and packed with protein. I like Total 0% Greek Yogurt, which has no fat and is still soo thick and creamy. I eat it with a bit of splenda and cinnamon and sometimes apple slices. It is the equivalent of dessert for me.

A testament to how good this non-fat yogurt is.. the other day I was eating a container (delicious as always) and randomly looked at the label. I had accidently bought FAGE Total Classic, which has all the classic fat. I realized that the classic version was slightly thicker, but not any better. I love this stuff! I eat one or two containers every day. I’m just addicted-it is so much better than lite ‘n’ fit, go for FAGE amis.

TIP: But yogurt (any kind) in the freezer for about 1 hour and it makes this great frozen yogurt, ice cream that is perfect for dessert. Don’t leave it in for too long though, because then the yogurt just turns to ice!

Over-Ate eh, but didn’t Binge

25 Mar

ah, I ate so much today. Normal food plus 2 doughnuts, a arepa (fried corneal patty with sweet cheese, plantains and avocado), as well as 1 pumpkin cupcake and super sweet banana pudding from the best bakery in town-SugarSweetSunshine. Right now I am headed out to a friends for some fine wines and a few bars later for some not so fine whiskey-ginger’s. My god what a day, but I also realize that it is really not the end of the world-or the end of my diet.
#1 Its natural to slip up every once in a while
#2 I went to the gym for an hour today
#3 I didn’t binge, which is a big deal. Even though I really overate and treated myself, I was still in control. I have a binging problem-which is characterized by uncontrolled (crazed!) eating. This was over the course of my day, hanging out and eating with friend.

Damage Control: I am attempting to eat around 1500 calories a day. I probably ended up eating an extra 1200 calories-total of 2700. Not really so horrible considering that my daily intake is 2010 calories (2510 plus 500 calories earned at the gym). Anyways not bad at all, just means that my efforts today certainly didn’t help me lose weight, and put me a little step back.

How do you guys do damage control after days over overeating?

Longing for the days of free Pilates and Yoga classes…

24 Mar

I used to work at a holistic health center two years ago. They taught yoga and pilates, which I could take for free and did 1 or 2 times a day. I have never been in better shape. Toned, long, and a sense of strength and body awareness that I hadn’t had since the depths of my ballet days. Unfortunately, living in nyc these classes are all cost around $15, a few less, some even more. My Bikram yoga classes cost me $20. Not bad for one class, but very expensive when you are considering taking multiple classes a week (or a day!) I wish I could get back on the pilates track though. It went along so well with my previous dance training. If only I had time, but maybe I could work study at a pilates studio?Joseph Pilates

Skinny and Curvy?

24 Mar

Do anyone have any good workout/nutrition tips for loosing weight, but staying curvy. I’d like a smaller waist (I suppose like everyone), but don’t want to have a “straight” body. Perhaps working out less and maintaining a healthy reduced calorie diet is the best way to go.. any thoughts or advice??
