So, the SAME weigh-in! Still 143. And here I was, in the bathroom, naked, thinking "I am looking thinner!" I thought I looked pretty good and saw a change, at least in the mid-section. So, perhaps there is a change but it is not being reflected on the scale as of yet. I know I get to a breaking point when I don't see results as quickly as I want to and then that just sets me into a binge cycle. This is the cycle that I want to break and I chose now because I think I am really in a good spot in my life to take back the control. So, I am not going to give in and give up so easily.
I was thinking about my body and all the weight I've gained and it took at least 2.5 years of binge eating to get to this point, so it's not going to take 4 days of being on the SGD to fix it. This is a long haul process. This is the first week. And so far, so good.
Today is 500 calories. My food is going to look like this today:
B - coffee with almond milk
L - giant salad - mixed greens, plum tomato, cucumber, roasted red peppers, 1/2 avocado and tuna in water. I ran out of organic beets and mushrooms. I can keep mushrooms in the frisge for about 4 days total and the they start to disintegrate.
S - red apple, 5 oz plain, non-fat greek yogurt with 2 tsp wheat germ
D - 2 scrambled eggs and a raw kale salad with nutritional yeast
S - strawberry shake (Lot's of ice and water!)
Green tea and water through out the day.
Exercise - gym routine - 55 minutes of cardio - that's 25 on the stationary bike and 30 on the elliptical. 40 minutes of upper body weight training - chest, shoulders, biceps, triceps and lats (back). I have also started working on my neglected abs. So, I am going to add in crunches and reverse crunches this evening as well.
Fate would have it that it is going to rain tomorrow. I can probably get to the gym around 2 pm and work on cardio, abs and thighs. I don't lift upper body 2 days in a row. Too old for that.
Here's to a successful Friday!!!!
Don't get stuck in the paralysis of perfection.
Seeking the ultimate freedom from binge-eating.
