Do what works, not what you're told.

190 days. (pitiful) pushups, squats, lunges and side crunches this morning.
Mini Revelation: For YEARS I have heard that I should eat the biggest meal of the day in the morning, and then the smallest at dinner time. I have heard how it will make me healthier, skinnier, and that if I ate more in the morning I wouldn't be hungry at night. Blah blah blah...I have never been a big breakfast eater, and I am always FAMISHED at night, so I always failed miserably when I tried this.
Today, just to see what would happen, I ate a greek yogurt for breakfast, a little sandwich at lunch and WHATEVER THE HELL I WANTED for dinner. You know what? At breakfast, I didn't really even want the yogurt, and I only finished it because I knew that's what I should do.
I ate the sandwich at lunch, and I was still a little hungry, but I knew I would have a big dinner so I made it through.
At dinner I ate ten fish sticks, 2 cups of spaghetti with one cup of sauce, 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese and 2 cups of spinach and two jello snack packs. Guess what? If I wanted to, I could still eat another 150 calories (AKA 2 more snack packs), but I don't. I am full. Stuffed even.
In fact, I didn't feel like I was starving or like I was depriving myself at all today.
What I am TRYING to say is if you are trying to lose weight to get healthy, and you find that some dieting rule doesn't work for you, throw it out and do what you gotta do.
Right now, for me, reducing my caloric intake is more important than at what times of day i take in the most calories. SO yeah...do what you gotta I guess.
