Well workout wise today was a rest day! I normally never did 3 rest days ever..lol but I really wanna follow jamie's plan.
*sigh* today was an "uh ohhh" day.
First of all...the past 2 nights I have been crazy sick. Like real upset stomach. I realized I haven't been going "number 2" at all like you'd think I should be with eating healthy and fiber (I know, TMI!!! Sorry guys!) It's been terrible. I seriously thought I had appendicitus. So hope tonights better. But so here's what happened.
I woke up at 830 still pretty sick, b ut wanted to get the meal in. So I ate my usual breakfast. 5 egg whites with salsa, coffe splash of almond milk, overnight oats with 1 TBS flax and berries.
pretty good so far eh?
Well at 10 is when it began. Chocolate craving. My mother bought twix and kitkats etc all in my refrigerater...it was killin me. I could feel a binge came on. So I "somewhat" gave in a little and had 2 peices of dark chocolate.
Not bad. "yet" that is...
so still naucious, I drove to school and at 1130am ate 3 protein bars, I cut one out because I ate the dark chocolate (66 cals about) I figured I'd just cut back on my midmorning snack.
Then 330 came time for lunch. I know, that's 4 hours but I have class straight til then. So I ate a turkey burger with ketchup and 2 plain rice cakes with 1 TBS all natural PB.
Still good. can't complain...yet...
Then dinner came. And I just was dying for birthday cake ice cream. My last mistake day was saturday, which was 5 days ago. I'd like to have waited til Sat. So I ignored it.
still trying to iiiiggggnnooore it.
Until. I gave in. *sigh* I ate probably a little over 1/2 cup. (I don't know exactly because well you know...I started measuring with 1/8 cup which is a joke with ice cream. really?? 1/8 cup. lol I'd assume about 1/2)
*sighs* This right after hearing Jamie's fb rant about people needing to do this to a T who are dedicated for results.
...but here's the catch.
I'm not a fitness guru. I'm not a personal trainer. I don't need a 6 pack. (I'd LOVE a tight tummy altho! haha) I'm not alot of things. I am a college girl wanting to tone up. I am wanting to eat clean and feel GREAT! I dont' feel great right now. But this is a lifestyle I want for life. If I sound like I'm coping out let me know! I guess I'm trying to be positive. I usually beat myself up. i wanted to follow jamie to a T. (and honestly still do want to). But if I don't tell myself I'm only starting week 3 and that 2 mistakes out of 2 weeks isn't bad compared to what I was doing, then I'd get real depressed.
So. In conclusion. today was a bad eating day. But tomorrow will be a fresh great new start and I'm gonna have a goal of maybe one small portioned cheat a week to keep cravings down.
As for the rest of the night, I counted the ice cream as my starch and ate a chicken breast dipped in balsamic dressing. Tasty! And later I'll probably eat cottage cheese or something of that sort. So, here's to hoping I have a few great blogs ahead! Hope you guys are doing great. Here's some last questions..
-Do you ever allow a cheat? If so, what, how often, and if you don't- what strategy do you do to resist?
-How are you liking the program? Seeing results? I was but the past 2 days (I believe to water retention from I believe being constipated from not drinking enough water, has made me feel so bloated!)
Well thanks sparkfriends!! Stay strong, remember you fall 7 times, get up 8! We can do this!
