I have been solid with the gym! I am doing strength training (heavy weights, actually shocked at what I am lifting) three times a week, cardio for 45 minutes on lifting days, 60 on non-lifting days. I have added some new, more challenging exercises to my routines to keep it interesting.
However, the food sucks. Well not toally, but enough to stall my weight loss so early in my adventure to locate my inner bad-ass.
I am tracking my calories using My Net Diary iPhone app. I have it set to lose 1.5 lbs a week, and I figured the other .5 lbs I hope to lose a week will be lost through the abovementioned exercise. I'm eating around 1650 calories a day, and trying not to eat back any of what I lost through exercise.
I am eating lots of protein, my goal is to surpass 120g/day. Lower on the carbs, most of that is coming from fruits and veggies and the 2-3 servings I am having of whole grains.
I am STARVING! But am I really hungry or wanting to binge eat (yeah, I have that problem too)?
Last night I ate two servings of trail mix and two bags of quakes, so about 520 calories I didn't need or plan for, just before bed, virtually undoing the hour of cardio I did that AM.
This is so frustrating. I gotta get it together. Any suggestions, as this eating/drive to eat usually happens at night? Any ideas would be appreciated.
