So let’s not even talk about today. (But actually, let’s do).
I’m on my period, and I’m ravenous. I’ve eaten pretty much everything in sight.
Also, I decided to weigh myself (bad idea).
According to the scale, I’ve gained back all 4 pounds I had lost. I’m sure some of it is from bloating/water retention, blah, blah, but I’m an emotional mess right now, and it just makes me want to cry.
I did so well that first week. The second week…eh. But this week, oh my gosh.
I’m doing horrible.
I am so much more motivated this time, but I’ve been eating WAY too much. I need to be consistent with my 6 mini-meals in order to re-wire my brain’s idea of being full. If I stick to these 6 tiny meals a day, eating every 2-3 hours, I’ll never actually be hungry, therefore, I won’t eat a gigantic meal that my body can’t all digest.
Today went something horrible like this:
Breakfast - Seaweed snacks
Snack - TJ’s Veggie and Rice Bento Box (too much at once)
Lunch - Veggie and falafel wrap with baked eggplant and pita bread (WAY too much at once)
Snack - Raw kale and half a tomato
Dinner - Hummus with pita, lettuce, banana pepper, a few olives, and tomato
Snack - Homemade strawberry preserves/granola cereal bars (HORRIBLE! Delicious, but I ate two :( )
Snack - Vegan gooey chocolate mug cake (Again, I’m on my period, but that’s no excuse!)
I think another thing that’s causing me to falter is my lack of sleep and horribly long school days. It takes a lot out of me!
I have literally no time to run unless I run when I get home, but I’m usually too exhausted from standing all day! UGH.
I need to go grocery shopping and prepare my 5 mini-meals to take with me to school the night before. Then, there will be no excuses. Yes. This is what I am going to do.
