Day 28: Calories Shmalories
Thursday, January 28, 2021
Lately I've been eating a lot. I mean compared to what I used to try to stick to. I am not gaining weight. I am able to work out with more energy. I think I'm sleeping better.
Perhaps for a long time I've tried to be too restrictive in my dieting when I'm trying to be fit. I am really trying to focus on mindful eating now and on building strength and stamina. I have to say that I am not unhappy with the results so far. Hm.
I'm not eating to excess, and I'm not eating junk food. I am eating some processed foods - chocolate, some Saltines. I'm trying to make sure I get my veggies and fruit.
Feeling a little mystified today as to why I'm not packing on the pounds. I'm sure I'll try to be more strict with myself as I get more accustomed to my workouts and feel less tired all the time. But maybe I can allow myself to eat more than 1200-1400 calories a day.
