Day 2: Realization!
Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Yesterday ended decently. I was over my calories but not by too much. I also got in a 11 minute SP video.
Today I went for some blood work (for a fertility clinic but don't tell anyone!) and it was the first time ever (except with sick) that I was told I needed to drink more water. She also had trouble finding a vain because I need more water. I know I need to drink more but the water here is nasty (I really should post a picture lol) and I don't like to drink at work because then I always have to pee.
Right after school I went to the store and got a big bottle of water, it's much easy to see how much I'm drinking with it instead of my smaller bottle. I also had two realizations today:
1. On days I work, I usually walk 8,000 to 10, 000 steps. It's the days I don't work that are the issue. Therefore I will focus on exercising on the days I am off.
2. When I track I do good but usually am still over my range, if I don't track I binge. I don't track consistently and therefore have okay days and binge days. I need to find a way to live my life without tracking and without binging. I need to find a balance. I would be able to always track but clearly binging isn't a good thing for me. I'm going to focus on having three balances meals and two small snacks a day. I'm also going to focus on having about 500 calories per meal, and between 100-200 calories per snack. That way I'm not binging on one meal while skipping others and it will still keep me in the 1700 to 1900 range for calories a day.
Today was good fitness wise because I worked and therefore walked a lot. Food wise it was a little bumpy but I did very well at the store and didn't buy chocolate milk or any sweets!
Now to go drink some more water!
