Day 2…thought I was gonna starve!

23 Jun

Ok, so it is day two of my attempt to shrink myself, it could have gone worse I suppose – least I didn’t cheat! Oh yeah, thats right, two days with no cheating, go me go!

I went to bed last night hungry, which I used to do when I wasn’t watching my food intake so that wasn’t weird on it’s own. Still, it is unpleasant having your tummy growl while trying to get in to la-la land.  When I woke up I was amazingly hungry! I felt hungry from pretty much the moment I gained consciousness, not good since I don’t eat until 8:30am and I am awake at 6:15am. I wait so long to eat because I meet up with  a friend at work,I will call her K, and we get breakfast together. It’s a nice way to start the day. 🙂 And we are lucky, work provides us with a lot of free food and drinks – which is why we eat there, it’s free!

So by the time I got to eat my poor stomach was making so many noises I thought people were going to be looking at me funny. lol. Breakfast did not hold me over until lunch, I got hungry enough mid morning I had trouble concentrating on work, not sure if this is because of what I ate for breakfast or the quantity or what, shrug, I will try something new tomorrow for breakfast and see what happens.

Lunch was pretty decent for filling me up but by the time I got home I was hungry enough to start making dinner right away instead of exercising right away and eating later. A month or so ago I started exercising when I got home from work, I find if I eat first and plan to exercise later I never do it, *rolls eyes*, but I fell off the wagon with that. I think I will eat healthy for a week or two and then start exercising more regularly…ease in to things.

For dinner, I tried taking a small small portion of the pasta I had in the hopes of keeping my points low, that didn’t work as I didn’t get filled from dinner and ended up eating another portion of pasta an hour or so after finishing dinner. I still fit it into my points so thats alright but I think this means I should eat a slightly more normal portion of food and get filled from my meal instead of eating too little and having to eat again quite soon.

So here is what I ate today:

bowl of rice krispies = 4 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

2 cups of tea = o

1 banana = 2 points

1 nectarine = 1 point

1 kiwi = 1 point

1/2 bowl weight watchers veggie soup = 0 points

1 whole wheat english muffin = 2

butter on muffin = 1 point

mixed veggies = o points

1/2 cup broccoli and cheese pasta = 4 points

1 cup tea = o points

1/2 cup broccoli and cheese pasta = 4 points

1 nectarine = 1 point

1 jaffa bar = 3 points (haven’t actually eaten this yet but I will when I am done typing)

Total points used = 24!! Exactly what I am s’posed to eat. 🙂

I used part of this evening to portion out foods in to servings so it will be easier tomorrow, I portioned out all my fruit, I have grapes and pineapple (well, and the nectarines but those don’t need to be portioned, shrug). I think I need to make something for dinner tomorrow that I can take part of the portion to work the next day for lunch , I am not sure what though…

I am reading a really informative book called Diet Myths That Keep Us Fat by Nancy L Snyderman, M.D. It is full of a lot of things I didn’t know but you can never take just one person’s info about eating healthy and losing weight. There are so many different views and they all claim to be scientifically proven blah blah blah. She seems to know what she is talking about and isn’t promoting any kind of fad or strange diet, she keeps going back to burning more calories then you are taking in – seems to make sense. I will post more about what she says after I am done the book.
