Because of various mishaps today I wasn’t able to start eating dinner until about 20 minutes ago.
That’s a big “no” right? Eating so late?
I hope I’m making up for it a bit my eating extra slow, drinking lots of water while I eat and doing light exercises while I eat.
Tried to keep my calories under 1200 today. For every half an hour of exercise I minus 25 calories (since I don’t know how many calories are burned during the workout.)
Green tea with honey - 65 cal
Mott’s Regular Applesauce - 90 cal
4 cheeze its (kid gave it to me and I felt bad saying no) - 22 cal
One vanilla cupcake (instead of a cigarette because I was at work) 324 cal
Green/Vanilla Chai Tea with Honey - 65 cal
1/2 an orange - 22.5 cal
1/2 cup of mac n cheese - 247 cal
chicken breast - 206 cal
platanos (3 slices) 49.2
Workout cals: - 50
Grand Total of: 1040
I can’t believe it! I thought I went over!!! Oh man! This is so encouraging. Ok, so today was my first day and I didn’t plan ahead, I just woke up and decided to. Soooo, maybe if I plan ahead I can make better use of those 1200 calories!!!
Ok, also I’ve only had 6 cigarettes all day and plan on having one more before bed for a total of 7!!! Much lower than my usual 13 or so. Aaaaaand I’ve not had any insane cravings!! Yay ^_^
What I need to keep in mind while planning this out in the long run is:
* No more than 1200 calories.
* Little or no rice, pasta, or bread.
* Try not to eat anything fried.
* Little or no sugar (use honey instead)
* At least one hour of workout.
* Cholesterol lowering foods.
* More protein and fiber less starches and oils.
* Fruits!!! More fruits!!!!!
So for tomorrow I’m thinking:
One large boiled egg (no salt) - 78 cal
Green Tea with honey - 65 cal
1/2 cup of dry oatmeal (cooked with water) - 160 cal
1/2 cup of frozen strawberries - 39 cal
1/2 cup of Applesauce - ?????
Green Vanilla Chai Tea with Honey - 65 cal
1/2 cup ground beef - 170 cal
1/2 cup vermicelli - 110
Platano (3 slices) - 50 cal
So adding this up (filling in 100 cal for the unknown) I get 837 calories. And that is more food compared to what I ate today. Anyways, that gives me about 360 calories to play with the rest of the day if necessary (though I’m very psyched that I was actually closer to 1000 than 1200 calories today, so I might keep trying to stay close to a 1000.) We’ll see.
I am very excited and motivated by having done well on my first day!!
I know that girls are scared to lift weights in fear of looking masculine. I want to let everyone know that you can be strong AND feminine.❤️💪 Learn to embrace your strength and muscles, for it is your hard work that has enabled you to have them. When I look at both photos, I feel just as beautiful in my gym clothes as I do in my evening gown. It’s not about what you wear or how you look on the outside, it’s truly about how you feel about yourself in the inside. And I…have never felt happier and alive.🙌
