I mean, really.
It isn't just "calories in/calories out", people.
Over the last 48-72 hours, I've cut out a lot of processed stuff and feel a lot better
I joined just two nights ago (and really kicked into high gear two days ago).
Today I had 2 six inch veggie delites from subway (or rather, a footlong divided into three portions over day) an apple, some watermelon (yum yum! eating it now) an egg and some OJ with 5 glasses of water. Yeah I had a diet cola (oops, sodium) but I'm working on it.
Yesterday I did sample some of my homemade challah (oops), did A LOT of walking (for about 3 hours constant), had an apple (I love Gala apples) some pasta from whole foods (a SMALL helping and the worst thing i ate all day) two kellogs bars (90 cals each), lots of water (8 cups), glass of oj (110 cals), and a cheesecake bite (my creation at 90 cals).
the pasta probably hurt the worst!
i know that processed stuff makes me feel icky and i'm going to be very mindful of that tomorrow. i can't completely chuck breads out the window but i'm going to see about not eating breads and eating chicken instead since i just started eating meat again.
i weighed myself midday (very scared to do so) and was happy that i was -4. i know it's water weight but that's okay because i shot up 8 lbs in a week just a few weeks ago (108 to 116).
i was 98 lbs back in december
and am shooting for 104 by the fourth of july at the latest!!
anyway, the advice of cutting out processed foods and refined sugars really does help for a diet-booster.
i think from now on, things like pasta will be in MODERATION, only sometimes and definitely only once a day and i know that certain brands are better than others. for instance, i know that yolk free kosher pasta is easier and lighter than other pastas and much better for my tum tum.
