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!
