Aha thanks! Day 19=success so far.
breakfast @ 8am before work– reduced fat blueberry muffin from DD
went to work til 1pm then swam til 2pm
lunch 11:3–12:30— ate a small banana, then a kasha almond bar, a piece of sourdough garlic bread & a gertrude hawk 70% dark chocolate bar…. I ate really slow which out really having to force myself, managed to really savor my chocolate bar & ate it over the span of like an hour which really helped me to feel satisfied
after I swam I came home and then my mom was making brownies so I had 2T of brownie batter w/ chocolate chip over top of 1/2c of chocolate rocky road ice creamApril 22, 2012 at 7:34 pm #92426
ughh, gotta admit that I resorted to counting calories today…. and Im afraid this may lead to binges because even now I just ate 5 (small, but still) brownies after thinking about trying to reduce the amount I wwas gonna eat for dinner to try to lose a few pounds before prom. I just get myself to stressed about fitting into my dress & guess I let it get to me again. Today was a failure for intuitive eating though I had the whole day to do so… & though this brownie eating was technically a “mini binge” I will try to not let it get to me I just need to stop counting calories…. whenever I resort back to it I often feel restricted & binge so idk why I proceed to do it. oh well, gonna get over it and just think about hw & studying for upcoming exams.April 23, 2012 at 7:37 pm #92427
today day 20:
breakfast: banana @ 720 + 3 hershey mini milk chocolate eggs, took kasha bar to school and ate at 750
lunch @ 11: ate a med-large apple, brownie, & a pancetta/salama sandwich on garlic sourdough with strawberry jam, mustard, a bit of olive oil mayo & lettuce.
snack(s) @ 3:15: nature valley trail mix bar, cheese stick and 2 brownies.
I’ve kinda been being lazy about eating intuitively, and not gonna lie its been bugging but today I have thus far avoided to count calories although it i did for my snack… trying to distract myself from calculating for the whole day. I believe because i am focusing more on calories that sometimes that makes me not focus on hunger as much… but oh well, i will take it one day at a time and keep working hard Day 21=3 weeks=TOMORROW!!!April 24, 2012 at 12:38 am #92428
came back from kickboxing at 7:45pm, ate a strawberry yogurt, then took a shower & started dinner. I ate a delicious chicken burger w/ mayo lettuce & mustard , with a side of two potato & cheese pirogues. To end the meal I had a glass of raspberry lemonade (light) & a tootsie roll. yum 3 weeks tomorrow! i’m proudApril 24, 2012 at 2:46 am #92429
Keep fighting! You can do this. We need to be eating to live, not living to eat. Stay focused and don’t give up!April 24, 2012 at 11:22 am #92430
That’s a good phrase! Thank youApril 24, 2012 at 10:01 pm #92431
breakfast didn’t eat til about 7:50am when I got to school and was hungry— kasha bar & medium apple
lunch was getting hungry so ate part of my lunch at 11-1120 during a history review class in school & then finished my lunch at 12pm (tuna salad & crackers, a brownie, a pouch of apples/grapes, and a trail mix bar felt satisfied and comfortably full)
at 3:00pm ate a nature valley pb&c protein bar before a work meeting & then swam at the YMCA for 30minutes
came home at 5pm and ate a small brownie that was left and then my mom made a frozen pizza so I had a few pieces, actually, ended up eating about 5 pieces (2/3 of the whole pizza) but didn’t feel really full, not sure why…? but was very content though I know I probably shouldn’t have eaten so many pieces but I don’t care!!! & today I haven’t been so concerned by food & worried about overeating… I’m at a point where I’m trying to accept the way I eat— starting to eat when Im hungry but not getting too concerned if I don’t follow this to a t……
Day 21–3 weeks= SUCCESS, not about to eat anymore tonight so I’m contentApril 25, 2012 at 8:10 am #92432

thank you! always appreciate your comments tobeApril 25, 2012 at 9:14 pm #92434
breakfast 7:00am— big bowl of honey nut cheerios & frosted flakes, with a small apple
lunch– 11:00am– big slice of pizza w/ chicken, cup of chocolate milk, & a twix ice cream bar. realized I prob ate too much sugar but was definitely overly analytical of my food decisions… yes I ate fatty no so good foods but i realize now its okay & that I don’t always eat like this so its fine… i eat healthy 90% of the time anyways & exercise so I shouldn’t care so much when I crave fattier foods. Also this meal made me feel satisfied and not craving anything else…
went to a review after school for math class then got gas & came home… ate a snack– banana & mozzarella cheese stick @ 4:45pm so I would have something in my system before kickboxing at 6:00pm..
will update w/ my dinner later, after kickboxing!April 26, 2012 at 12:12 am #92435
came home after kickboxing at about 7:45pm & just ate a smallish dinner: 1/2cup general tsos take out w/ sauce and 1/3 cup of pork fried rice, 2 hard boiled eggs, & 2/5 of a gertrude hawk milk chocolate bar yum! Day 22 = success!April 26, 2012 at 12:25 pm #92436
just woke up, was hungry, & ate a good yummy breakfast a bit too much but whatever:
3 medium buttermilk pancakes with banana (1 whole), a sprinkle of oats, & 1T semi-sweet chocolate chips, topped with 2T maple syrup. Also,ate 3T of whipped chocolate frosting & a piece of a milk chocolate bar….
ready to do some hw a d relax today— took the day off from schoolApril 26, 2012 at 8:17 pm #92437
Lunch at 12:30pm– went to friendly’s with the Family & decided on one of their Under 550 calorie meals & was actually satisfied with my choose— a Ginger Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry, It was SO GOOD! Usually I feel restricted by picking the low-cal options because I used to force myself to eat only off these menus at restaurants but I told myself today that I could eat whatever I think sounded really good & was actually opting for something with a lot of veggies so I did check out the low cal options first and spotted my choice of the menu After I ordered dessert & though I didn’t need it, though who cares- who every really NEEDS dessert?, & instead of a full fat, large serving sundae which Friendly’s is known for, I chose a double scoop sundae with reduced-fat vanilla frozen yogurt, peanut butter & a reeses cup, and ate about 1/3 of it and decided to save the rest for later Then about a half hour later went to the gym with my dad, did 25min of cardio then arms/abs! came back and a half hour later decided to finish my frozen yogurt. I went to find something more to eat after it, as always after a sweet I feel an urge to eat more sweets (addicting sugar!) but when I reached for something I asked my self if I needed it & would feel content with my decision after & decided that no, I didn’t really want to eat more and not have room for dinner later… Im so proud of myself & how easy these healthier decisions are becoming! I also noticed after lunch that I naturally had eaten my meal slower & savored it fully… I even left about 1/2 cup of rice on my plate because I was getting full… I haven’t done that in a while— usually I always completely finish my plate despite hunger cues.April 26, 2012 at 9:17 pm #92438
Just ate my dinner, despite not being hungry at all… & I could’ve chosen to wait but I have hw to do & I guess made an excuse to eat now so I can finish my hw and not have to worry about eating. Now I am a bit too full but its okay , not gonna let it get me down that I ate too much.
Ate a Kashi Dark Choc/Cherry granola bar, a spicy sausage patty on 2 thin slices of garlic sourdough bread w/ 1/3 romaine leaves & ketchup. It honestly wasn’t too much food at all but I feel pretty full now… prob because I ate to soon after my last meal. Just finished my meal with 4 hershey kisses.April 28, 2012 at 3:49 am #92439
extremely successful day 24!!! listened to my body ate what I wanted, didn’t obsess over my meals, ate naturally slow & enjoyed an amazing kickboxing class where I had an extremely good workout & maintained confidence & calmly talked to my kickboxing instructors son who taught class today — he is sooo attractive! Im so proud of myself too because I’m usually a nervous nelly & super shy around guys I find attractive and have a low self esteem but not today! I feel like all of this stuff with food & eating healthy/exercising has become easier and more enjoyable without restricting or counting calls & I whole-heartedly believe that it has been decreasing my stress levels & has boosted my confidence a TON… not to mention I feel so much better physically!!!
goodnight from me!! so happy I had such a good day, tomorrow I look forward to trying sushi for the first time… well, I’ve tried veggie sushi but looking to try something more authentic
