I workout five days per week, run for 30 mins, alternate days of lifting weights and sometimes do a little extra cardio on the elliptical or whatever takes my fancy for that day. I walk my dog a lot and swim a few times per week at my community pool.
I eat a very healthy diet consisting of lot's of fresh fruit and veggies and I drink around 12 glasses of water daily (I don't drink anything besides water, ever, well excluding a few beers about once a month). I consume around 1000-1200 calories per day, I've had many people tell me that this can't possibly be good for me but, I don't starve myself, I'm never hungry, I eat healthy well portioned meals and it just so happens that I eat so much fruit and veggies that it's all low in calories, ya know? I do eat grilled chicken daily and I eat whole grains and drink fat free milk in my protein shake. I've also consulted two doctors and a nutritionist and all have told me that consuming 1000-1200 is perfectly fine for me. Sorry if I seem defensive about this, it's just that I've had so many people jump down my throat about this matter.
Thanks again everyone!
P.s: As for the hair, I cut 9 inches off of it recently, I felt like I had to shed another part of the old me and it was a great decision!
