SLOWSET's SparkPeople Blog SLOWSET's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community diet vs social life i weighed in at 107.8 pounds this morning. i ate too little yesterday and i don't doubt that some of the loss was water weight... see?? this is so illogical and frustrating. i'm scared of eating too much and scared of how much i'll weight, so i eat too little and then the next day i hate myself for doing so beause i feel like the scale is lying. vicious circle. <BR> <BR> anyway today, i'm doing ok. at the moment it's 478 calories, 87 carbs, 9 fat, 15 protein and 8 (!!) fibre. i still have di... Fri, 28 Mar 2008 09:56:42 EST how to prevent going in the other extreme? i just don't know. i don't know why i can't be in the middle, it's so typical of me and it frustrates me so much. <BR> <BR> i was worried about today and rightly so i guess. i had noone at home to eat dinner with, and i was so tempted to skip it. noone was going to know. but i needed to do my second set of strength training for the day and i knew i was already lacking in protein today, so i had a small can of tuna in water worth 75 calories virtually all of which is protein. which is great a... Thu, 27 Mar 2008 15:13:10 EST warning bells i've found it a bit hard today, to keep the horrible disordered voices out of my head. <BR> <BR> maybe it was tracking the food, i knew i would get obsessive about it but how else am i supposed to know what i'm eating? <BR> <BR> i was planning to have a snack in the afternoon but skipped it (would have been a kiwi or a WW yogurt, frozen - by the way it's delish!), even though i was hungry and i could have done with it. <BR> <BR> i probably overestimated my dinner in my nutrition tracker. <... Wed, 26 Mar 2008 17:17:50 EST feeling good last night during dinner, i was very mindful of what i was eating, which i haven't done in a while to be honest! i stopped when i wasn't hungry anymore and didn't fret about leftovers. i stuck with my exercise routine - 40mins cardio and 25-30mins muscle workout. <BR> <BR> today i'm tracking what i eat the best i can, since tonight we may be going out for dinner/take away. i'm not too worried though, i'll exercise my self-control! i'll have to estimate it though. <BR> <BR> Wed, 26 Mar 2008 06:57:04 EST day 3 day three of exercising in the morning, doing muscle work, and controlling temptation! <BR> <BR> i just finished 40mins of stepper, and i now have my own strength exercise routine that i do two sets of everyday, so all together i do - <BR> <BR> 400resistance band arm lifts (so hard!!) <BR> 150 leg curl crunches <BR> 150 twist crunches. <BR> <BR> i really want better abs, and better arms, obviously. i haven't lost any weight yet, even though i'm eating healthy i think i might be eating stil... Tue, 25 Mar 2008 04:37:27 EST keeping afloat today, for the first time in a long time, i feel truly motivated. after reading a passage on a sparkpage last night about how exercising first thing in the morning is so beneficial, i did just that today and i feel SO good! so energised and ready to face myself. <BR> <BR> eating wise it's been good too. i'm going to do some pilates later i think, it feels great to know that you alone can sculpt your body to look its best, but the hard side is that noone else can ultimately help you in the en... Sun, 23 Mar 2008 10:44:11 EST no more tomorrows fresh start! <BR> <BR> summer is coming much too soon and i really, really need to pull myself together. i know i can do this, and i know i can do it without starving myself. <BR> <BR> audrey hepburn is my ultimate inspiration, and quite fitting as yesterday i celebrated a 2 year anniversary with the boyfriend, and he got me a beautiful ring from Tiffany's :) <BR> <BR> here's to a better me.
