THANK YOU for your suggestions on my massive hunger attacks! here is the before, during, and new trial of things. hopefully this time i can get myself under control....
B4 SPARK: 7 min walk + 3 flights stairs 2x/day. 6-8 water. rarely finishing whats on my plate at dinner... cal intake around 800-1500
START SPARK: 700-850cals on elliptical, 5 min yoga, 5 twist, 100-200 situps. 8-12 water. starving... cal intake around 1550-1650
EXPERIMENT: 600 elliptical, 5min yoga, 100 situps. 8-12 water. try to eat more high fiber foods... aim for cal intake1200-1550cal.
list of high fiber foods for me to try eating more of are...
FRUITS: apples, bananas, blueberries, cantaloupe, strawberries
VEGGIES: broccoli, carrots, corn, peas, potatoes, zucchini
GRAIN: oatmeal, pasta
is it okay to have the banana and zucchini in a muffin or will that defeat the purpose?
i've nixed the yogurt because i'm semi-lactose intolerant (i can only eat so much dairy without tossing cookies), the whole wheat due to an allergic reaction (throat closes, far from pleasant), and drinking more water (i'll float!).
i kept resisting eating last night so as not to go over my cals (success!) but felt really sick, my tummy hurt and went all puffy *ick* so i decided to weigh myself again to see if it was any different from last nights's insanity and it was down by 1-2 lbs. so i think from now on we'll hide the scale until weigh in day just so i'm not tempted to check...
