I had a huge argument with my boyfriend the day before yesterday, I don't really want to get into it here, but weight loss-wise I didn't do too good yesterday. Everything went well until night came and I felt like eating...one thing after the other...I made myself a second plate of oatmeal, I ate an apple, french fries with dipping, all of this AFTER tracking all the other food and realizing that I already went over my calorie goal of 1200-1500 kcal (BEFORE eating all of these foods I was at 1750 kcal or so for the day). I eat out of boredom all the time, I eat my feelings away too, so to speak. I'd like to think that i had the huge cravings because of the blood donation the day before, but the truth is, I always crave food, and a LOT of food. So I'm actually craving big quantities, one small bite is never enough...
I also started doing a workout DVD and boy am I out of shape!!! I could hardly do 10 minutes and let me tell you, it wasn't even a very hard DVD! So all in all, after those first two good days, I had two bad days. Now today we're going to an all you can eat restaurant...I know, right? :) It's valentine's day, and that's David's favorite place, it's an Asian place with amazing food, a bit pricey but totally worth it occasionally. So I'll try to eat more of the lean foods and nothing fried, and very little dessert either.
I wish there was someone that I could talk to about all of this, but there's no one here, and to be honest, even when we move back home, my friends can't really relate, they're all skinny and they actually have to put effort into gaining weight, not losing (I know, I hate them too). :)
I'm just lacking energy right now, it's the middle of the day, I slept my 8 hours but I feel so ... tired.
Okay, this has to stop, I'm going to make myself a good old energizing green tea RIGHT NOW!
Okay, I made the tea. :) Hopefully it'll energize me enough to do a workout DVD. Or better yet to finish the one I started but only did 10 out of the 30 minutes because it was so hard...
I said in one of the previous blog posts that I don't want to make all these goals about how much weight I want to lose and by when...BUT there are 6 and a half weeks left until we move back home and, I mean I'm just putting this out there - it would be AWESOME if I could lose 7 kilos (about 15 lbs) because that would put me to a weight that I haven't been in 5 (FIVE!!!!) years, since December 2008!
So...just putting it out there...it would be great to go home and have people say WOW instead of avoiding the subject (or, like my mother, make unkind comments...)
