I haven't gone over my daily calories in the last two days. :)
It's 7:22. I didn't have to wake up until 8, but I couldn't sleep. You know what I should be doing? Walking on the treadmill, but my back is so sore from yesterday. I have a tendency to start dieting and working out, but pushing my body to a point that I can hardly get out of bed-- and so I quit. I'm going to pace myself this time. There isn't going to be a next time- this is it. If I fall off the wagon, I'll get back on. For the first month, I might not work out that much, but if I can watch what I eat.. it should be a success.
I'm feeling super positive right now. I'll take that!
My problem is what to eat-- I'm a poor college student. For instance, I'm trying to stay within 1400-1500 calories a day. It's easier to stay within that range than it is to find foods that I can eat AND afford. I'm a picky eater. I really don't like meat. Okay, I'll eat some. But with carbs, watch out! I'm a hardcore carb eater! So for the last two days I've eaten oatmeal, ramen noodles and a ham and cheese lean pocket (plus some fruits and veggies) I really have a hard time eating fruits, I usually buy some & let it go bad. So I've been drinking two servings of tomato juice which is about 100 cals. Not bad. I do okay eating veggies. I like to keep a cut up red bell pepper around to snack on between meals. I guess I should get some celery or broccoli or something. I'm not a fan of lettuce, so salad just isn't for me. I'm thinking I need to eat egg whites for breakfast & get some almonds or something to accompany my other meals for some protein.
All this talk about food is making me hungry.
I really need a hobby. I need something to occupy my mind..otherwise I tend to get depressed. Endorphins are my best friend! :)
Well, I'm off to get ready for the day. Hope everyone has a good day today!
Today has gone so well. I didn't work out, but I've eaten well. It's really exciting. I've been drinking lots and lots of water, and I really think it's helped me. I read somewhere that when you're dieting, you often think you're hungry when you're really just thirsty. Tis true, I believe! I really haven't had any cravings yet (knock on wood!) I think it's because yes I'm dieting, but I'm not eating grilled chicken and veggies for dinner.. I'm eating things that I enjoy, but just keeping my calories in check.
