So yesterday was a pretty good day.
I did remarkably well with the eating, I was actually quite surprised with myself. It was my first day of eating every 2-3 hours, watching my calories and writing down everything I eat. I haven't totalled up the calories yet but I think it is right around 2000 calories. That is exactly where I would like to be right now. I figured out that I was eating at least 2500 calories a day so I needed to cut out around 500. Eventually I would like to be at about 1800 calories and stay there for life, but for right now 2000 is good. I packed two snacks and a lunch for work, one snack to eat at 9:30 and one to eat at 2:30 and that seemed to work out good. I wanted to also incorporate another snack after dinner but soon realized that I am probably going to have to eat 2 snacks in between lunch and dinner because I eat lunch at 11-11:30. I'm fine with eating 2 snacks before dinner and then nothing after, I actually like that better. I did have a few slight hunger pangs yesterday but nothing major and I was definetly expecting some considering it was my first day cutting out more than a meals worth of calories. What I really enjoyed was the feeling of being "satisfied". I can't tell you the last time that I didn't stuff my face so much everytime I ate food that it was uncomfortable to do anything because I was soooo full. Yesterday I didn't have that feeling once and it was amazing. It felt so good and it has been FOREVER since I've felt like that I forgot what it was like. And by the way I never realized how many calories is in regular peanut butter..wow!
Exercise…what exercise? I need help because I don't know what to do. I can't get my lazy ass up at 5am to exercise. My alarm goes off and I reset it for 5:50 when I normally get up. Blah this morning I was like "you don't have a choice, get your ass up" but I still rolled over and reset my alarm. Does anyone have any suggestions on things I can do to make myself get up? I want to work out in the morning so that I also have the option to work out at night and have "two-a-days". I just need to get in the routine of waking up early and doing so. Any suggestions would be realllly appreciated.
