Two Days In

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Well, I'm two days in. Yesterday, didn't fare so well at 2,300 calories but it's better than what I have been eating for sure (and certainly more balanced). Fairly confident I didn't get enough protein/fat to keep me full, so I will look to bump those today and see if it makes a difference.

I've been able to get 1 shake in per day. The idea of drinking one for lunch has gone out of the window because it turns out I like real food (NO! Imagine that.) However it's been a great option for breakfast which I normally don't eat so that's a plus.

I brought snacks to work yesterday and only ate one of them so today I will have the other (egg salad with kasha crackers and tangelos). Speaking of, I should probably get dressed here and head out to work shortly.

I'm encouraged that I only have two more weeks of school before I get a break. Excited to be half way through my masters program already. One more year... I can do that.

I'm remembering what it feels like to be hungry (one day I acted on it, one day I didn't). I drank 10+ glasses of water each day so far (and happily, felt dehydrated). I think that my need to always do something (and consequently never feeling settled) has a lot to do with why I have a disordered relationship with eating. Something to explore a little further.

Overall, I'm pretty happy that I made a decision to just do something instead of being miserable about not doing anything. Onward and downward!

    I love your honesty. It's amazing how positive that can be, not only for yourself, but for us following you. I say this because we share in some of the same issues. I always feel better making attempts vs. not. Be proud of yourself, you've got a lot going on. And I find when I make the effort to focus on myself, how much happier I am and I'm sure much nicer to be around. My goal is to finish the year strong and start the new year even stronger!

    Sounds like you are off to a good start. Keep the momentum going. I like that eating more than planned didn't make you throw the whole plan out the window. I think the last few lines of your blog say an awful lot.
