NOTE: I’m using diet as a term for the foods I eat.
I always said that I wouldn’t be counting calories forever, but I’ve been doing it for a month or two now, and here are my problems with it:
1. I’m eating even more white bread than usual, because a sandwich is actually quite easy on calories and very filling.
2. I don’t listen to my body. If I have calories left, I’ll eat just to reach my calorie goal, and if I want to eat more I’ll exercise to allow for it in my cal goal, and to be honest it was making me hate exercise.
SO, first point of order: clean up my diet.
The plan for one week (and I’m going to see how I do) is to stay counting calories for everything bar fruit and veg, and stick to 800-1000 kcals of food besides fruit and veg. I’m not sure if that’s too much or too little, I guess I’ll figure it out as I go.
The point is that I’m going to eat way more vegetables if I don’t have to weigh them out. So, yeah. I’m looking forward to destressing food again!
Super excited about this, I badly needed a kickstart and a buddy is always a great way to do it.
Shout-out to minderaser!
I’ve been working out/eating healthy for about three weeks and I’ve lost a little over ten pounds. But as I am obese, you can’t really see it yet.
I work out, and I feel amazing. I feel healthy. Then I look in the mirror and see a big blob.
If you don’t understand the feeling, I guess I could compare it to a transgender person. They know themselves as male, but the mirror shows them female. It’s like a watered-down version of that, except for obesity.
I’m not sure I’m making sense anymore.
Feel free to scroll on by.
I’ve just been off track recently, so if I think my shameful binges will be seen by someone (even an anon on Tumblr) it might get me back on track.
Today. Today was shameful. I really am ashamed to write down what I ate, but hopefully it will give me the strength to make healthier choices tomorrow.
-2 ham n’ cheese toasties (sooo bad)
-Beef, potatoes and peas (small portion)
Then, the binge: *builds up courage*
-1 pita bread
-1 slice toast with nutella (lots of the stuff :( )
yjthrgfhjtrgefds so disappointed.
As Anne Shirley said, however: Tomorrow is always fresh, with no mistakes in it.
Working means all I’m doing all day is cardio - which is not a bad thing, but I have a few days off so today was my first day back doing ‘proper’, scheduled workouts in a couple of days.
Did a few blogilates videos (Cassey Ho, you are my hero!) and my bum, legs and arms are burning right now. Feels good.
So today… I caved.
I’d eaten healthily all day then at about 6 I pulled a Cornetto from the freezer. After eating most of the top, I decided my craving was satisfied and threw the rest away.
Not sure if I’m disappointed or proud.
