FOOD...I just can't seem to get enough of it, literally. It doesn't help that I have weird hours and am not on a schedule at all. My days and nights fluctuate. I eat dinner usually before 7pm, I get to bed anywhere between 3 and 6am, yes, I don't get enough sleep as well. Then I don't eat again until 11am and that is usually a Vega One Chocolate Shake with Beet Root Powder and Almond/Coconut Milk. Occasionally I will add a scoop of Sun Warrior for extra protein.
After that shake I may not eat again until 7pm and that is usually a salad or a baked potato loaded with veggies. Or I will make rice noodles or brown rice and veggies.
There are times where I will drink another shake or a Naked Juice some where in the day.
My plan is to eat something small, up to 390 calories, 4 times a day. Then I will see how that works for me and go from there.
I am going to try and start a routine too, might be difficult but I think it will work out better for me if I do.
There has been a few times I went to the gym and struggled to finish because of a lack of energy. I get so upset with myself when that happens. Today is a good example of that. I did 45min of cardio and was just physically exhausted. Mentally I was ready to hit the weights and do my leg routine. But I just had to stop and listen to my body. I didn't want to...I wanted to push myself. Thankfully I listened to my body instead of my brain.
Tomorrow will be better.
