Well, along with the diet group that I'm in on PrettyThin, I just joined a 4 week diet. Here is the plan for this week, beginning with today:
Day 1 (Monday): 200 calories + exercise
Day 2 (Tuesday): 250 calories + exercise
Day 3 (Wednesday): 400 calories
Day 4 (Thursday): 200 calories + exercise
Day 5 (Friday): 300 calories + exercise
Day 6 (Saturday): 370 calories + exercise
Day 7 (Sunday): Under 200 calories or fast
It shouldn't be too hard, except for maybe Sunday. Today went pretty well. Here is what I ate:
- Breakfast: 4 medium strawberries (16)
- Lunch: Lots of veggies (75)
- Dinner: 1/2 a vegan tamale (75) and veggies (25)
Total calories: 191
I also worked out for an hour doing the elliptical and weights/sit-ups and burned about 600 calories. I wanted to stay for longer, but my boyfriend didn't bring his keys so he needed me to let him back into our room. Ok, so this is sort of changing topics suddenly, but I feel the need. So I have a tattoo on my left shoulder blade of the National Eating Disorders Association recovery symbol. Here is what it looks like (except the smaller line is purple and the bigger line is red):
I feel sort of guilty, because when I got it a year and a half ago, I promised myself that I would never go back to my eating disorder. I got it as a reminder of how much my ED sucked. So now when I see it, I feel kind of bad because I'm clearly relapsed. Hmm.
Oh hey, guess what? I lost another pound!! I'm down to 179. I haven't been below 180 since right before my senior year of high school, so 2.5 years ago! This is awesome :) Well, I need to do some serious homework. Love you all! Stay strong.
