Worked out this morning, burned 530 calories boxing class and elliptical trainer.
130 calories brekky: light soy latte and strawberries
Herbal teas, an espresso with stevia around 1, more herbal tea, a diet coke at 3 and I have been thinking about food quite a LOT for the last hour or so. Starting to think about what I'll eat for dinner and when. Bring it on!!!
[Sorry readers if this is dull, I'm blogging mainly as a record for me, see where my struggles occur.]
I'm actually glad my snackish day turned up on my fast day today or I may have resorted to eating the chocolate cake I made over the weekend and the southern fried chicken I had prepared for my 2 boys dinner tonight. As it is I have been ok telling myself that I will have something tomorrow and from previous dieting experience I know that the planned for tomorrow snacks will never be eaten (or at least not in the quantity that I can imagine!)
It makes me deal with my food issues
It has thought me that I eat even though I am full but head still wants food
It trains me to stop eating when full as my tummy hurts when I over eat
With portion control, I can still eat my chocolate, ice cream and cake when I want to
I can fast and my husband has no idea what is going on as I still ‘eat’ in front of him
The look on peoples face at work when I say I am fasting
To be back to the body I remembered
To put on pants that has been too tight to wear a year ago
I have been eating more than I need to survive
It is ok to not eat up the food on my plate
Hip, Hip, Hooray! At last I'm 11 stone something! (11.12) to be precise, as at yesterdays Sunday Weigh-In.
I wish I could resist the temptation to hop on the scales every morning, as the downside of that is that you notice all the 'up and down' fluctuations through-out the week but its an ingrained habit of many years, so I can't see it changing now.
Noticed I could use a different hole on the belt at the weekend too, so will try not to worry if the scales go up and down a bit between weigh-ins, as long as I can do my belt up on the same, tighter notch, things can't have changed that much. Must go by the weekly weight not the daily one!!!
I am using bought meal replacements on my fast days, as it saves having to think about what to buy, prepare etc and because I found some less than half-price bargains on some of the slimming sites after Christmas.
Sort of looking forward to my next 600 fast day tomorrow (Tuesday)to start...
