Day 18: Tracking Calorie is EYE OPENING
Friday, August 12, 2016
Insanity: I was going to skip today because I have a cold, but I still got to the gym early at work and my coworker was ready for me, so we did the video. I did go easier than usual, but was pouring sweat at the end. I felt better after the workout (well, after the shower after the workout). I then had a stressful day and some energy (odd, I'm sick..), plus I wanted to daydream and zone out to my music, so I went back to the gym for 30 minutes elliptical. It was light workout, the elliptical tends to be for me. But I still plan to sleep early tonight - my body needs rest.
Mindful eating: Tracking today I see I ate a very small breakfast and lunch, I was at 800 calories after breakfast,lunch,and snack. Then, however, I got hit with some hunger. I ate the same cuban pork dish as last night..except I had 2 tonight. Then I made some oatmeal with greek yogurt. Didn't finish it because I felt full, but was definitely still hungry when I first started. So at the end, this 'dinner' was 1100 calories! I went over my 1400-1500 goal, but I did burn an extra 200+calories on the eliptical. Still, it is so mind opening to see how undereating during the day really leads to a heavily back end weight calorie day. What if I had taken an extra 300 calories to lunch and breakfast? Would that have been better?
