Feeling better! Still food obsessed tho...

Monday, July 19, 2010

I had a mini weigh in on sunday, and I`ve lost 1.2kgs (2.5lbs) in two weeks! Hey that`s not bad, but I had the feeling it might have been a bit better if I`d kept to my cal ranges more strictly.

So I am keeping with my current range, and perservering with the small changes to my diet. I`m still obsessed with thinking about food, but there may be slight improvements and I am getting closer to my ranges day by day.

I`m still struggling to eat more protien...I cooked up boston beans in the slow cooker so i will portion them up and eat them through the week. The cashew nuts I got while a smallish bag I struggled to make them last 3 days, they probably could have lasted 4 but anyway, I wanted to do nothing more than sit down with the bag and finish them off, maybe I love cashews too much. Maybe I should get walnuts instead I kinda don`t like the bitterness to them on their own emoticon

But I have been keeping my running up despite the humidity , I am so proud of that ;D I figure take it easy through the summer and then when it gets more comfortable add some intervals to get my pace up. Mind you there must be a limit for how fast fat girl me can run, I`m carrying around all this extra bulk with me it`s gotta be slowing me up!

This weekend my boyfriend held my wrist and then jumped back surprised. "Your arm feels thinner." He said rechecking around my forearm with his hand. I have no idea that is something I stare at every day I`m never gonna see a difference.

Except I was looking through some old pictures, oh man now there I could see the difference!

And about to light up a cigarette!!

I thought this was one of them more flattering pics of the night

By coincidence I am wearing that black and pink camisol right now, I wear it as pjs. It is so baggy on my now I need to tie knots in the straps lol.

This is a quick picture I took this weekend.

I`m wearing black so it`s not clear but this is the new me! emoticon

    oh, and I'd stay away from the top range of the calories. At least when I manually calculated my calorie-burning, if I consistently stay at the upper range I barely lose any weight compared to staying near the lower range. Lower-middle is good!

    I've taken a liking to egg substitute for protein in the morning. 2 eggs' worth, 2 slices of whole wheat potato bread, a slice of cheese, and a slice of ham and I've got myself 35g of protein to start the day at only 330 calories. When you want to find good protein, just look for foods that are low in fat, but moderate in protein (fish, chicken, beans). Nuts are great for protein, but they're also packed in fat. If I'm gonna have nuts (usually peanut butter), I'll do it in small amounts usually before or after a workout. It's easy to overload on nuts and get too many calories!

    Congrats on breaking the 100kg mark! Don't give up now!
