    Meal 2: Chicken Caeser Salad

    Meal 3: Bulgogi,geme,kimchi,aged cheddar cheese, mixed nuts

    Exercise: Ran 1 mile,

    Assessment : Very good day. I think i can complete all my goals and i ate pretty well except for dinner...i kind of binged. I went back for seconds,and thirds yikes! And i was full when i ate the nuts but i was realllly craving some. My carbs were very nice, but i ate alot of it as sugar... I should probably lower my protein tomorrow and up my fat and carbs a teeny bit. I ate a ton of sodium today!?!? 4,000mg! It was probably all the korean food. And i'm pretty sure the chicken on my salad from Jersey Mikes was fake...ahh well i just won't eat it ever again. I have a thing on Friday and i really need to fit into my uniform so tomorrow i think its going to be cabbage soup and proteins.

    No cheese or nuts tomorrow

    Day 5: May 18th 2011

    Goals: Eat three balanced meals, all of them being about 400 calories. Get a good workout in at cheer, get to bed at 10pm. No over-eating like i did at dinner yesterday. Try not to eat bulgogi(so much sugar!), or nuts or cheese or fruits. I can do it!

    Meal 1: a 'tuna burger' (1 can of tuna, 1 egg, basil,salt,1/2tbs olive oil), radish soup

    Meal 2: 4oz of shrimp and 1pound broccoli sauteed in butter,salt and garlic, (1tbs butter)

    Meal 3: 2 slices of bacon, costco rotesserie chicken thigh, leg and bite of breast, 5 costco pork ribs, 1/3 avocado, coconut flakes sweetened

    Meal 4: coconut flakes sweetened, 1 pork rib, radish soup

    Exercise:Cheer!

    Assessment: Ate alot at meal 3, meal 4 was unnecessary because i wasn't even hungry. What can i do... my ratios are golden today though. But i ate too much protein for my body weight so idk, i dont want kidney failure. Plus i bought some coconut oil so excited to cook with it, maybe a coconut pancake for breakfast?. I realized my stomach always hurts if i eat too much now days, i used to be a bottomless pit LOL. Primal eating has really fixed my hunger/full signals and hopefully i'll stop eating to the point where i'm going to explode, its going to be hard since i'm so used to eating everything on my plate, i can't help it!! Tomorrow is a LHT day i'm thinking...

    No Nuts tomorrow! (Pistachios,walnuts,almonds)

    Calories/Ratios/Grams: ~1,520 calories Fats: 87g, 34.9g saturated, 51%. Carbs: 59.2 g, 22.6g fiber, 20.2g sugar, 15%. Protein: 127g, 33%

    Day 7: May 20th 2011
    TOTAL FAILURE

    …Since my last post i have completely fallen off the wagon! I didn't track anything since i was so depressed but i can say it involved cupcakes,cookies,chocolate,peanuts and M&Ms. ALL IN 24hours! I totally binged because i kept justifying myself with the fact that i'm starting Whole30 tomorrow with my dad. I ate at least 3,500 calories OVER what i needed too and i really hate myself. But i AM going to forgive myself, tomorrow is a new day and i am excited to do this journey with my dad (Whole 30) for a month. I am NOT doing this to lose weight, i am doing it as motivation for my dad, to find my inner strength, feel better( I've been suffering sicknesses lately), and just make me a stronger person. I Am excited. Whole 30 starts TOMORROW!

    Day 8: May 21st 2011

    Starting my Whole 30 with my dad, not going to go into much detail on this but i sincerely hope i can stick with it.

    Measurements(Before-Now):

    Weight: 113.8
    Hip:35 ½'
    Waist:26 ¾'
    Belly Button:31 ½'
    L Thigh:20 ½'
    R Thigh:20'
    Both arms: 10'

    I have further eliminated bacon,and dairy from my diet

    Goals: Try and get my body back on fat for fuel, means going VLC these next two days (under 30g). Get off to a good start for my whole30. NO SNACKING OR BINGING. Eat under 1,500 calories. Also, one more week of counting calories and i am stopping Sunday of NEXT week,

    Meal 1: A little under half an avocado, 2 eggs fried in coconut oil, and 3oz rotesserie chicken

    Meal 2: 10oz Southwestern marinated chicken breast,a handful walnuts,tbs almond butter and couple handfuls macadmia nuts, salad w/ olive oil & balsamic vinegar (Over the course of two hours)

    Exercise: Stunting,jumping (cheer)

    Assessment: Did pretty well, followed all my goals, except i over-ate on the nuts. Over half my daily calories!? I feel a little crappy, because i got smacked in the nose and my eating was so horrendous the past two days, recovering. I am really proud of myself for doing this Whole30 and i hope everyday can be like today. OMG my carb is only 9% of my day, Awesome! I however ate a ton of protein, i'm having trouble finding ways to incorporate more fat while on whole 30.

    Calories/Ratios/Grams: ~1,300 calories. Fat: 89.3g,16.2g saturated, 58%. Carbs: 29.3g, 13.8g fiber, 9.2g sugar, 9%. Protein: 113.5g, 33%.

    Day 9: May 22nd 2011

    Forgot to make my goals.. but i decided to stop counting calories early. So no more obsessive counting for ME.

    Meal 1:¼ apple sausage, ½ meatball, a tiny amount of steak and chicken (Samples at Costco!). 4ish oz of chicken breast, 1/4cup macadamia nuts, 1 tbs almond butter, small amount of coconut flakes

    Meal 2: TON of hamburger meat, like three whole patties. sauteed onions (coconut oil) and fruit salad, ¼ avocado, 20ish pistachios

    Exercise:None…

    Assessment: Pretty lazy day and i ate a bunch. Meal 1 & 2 blended together = grazing. meh . I'm a little dissapointed in my day but i stuck to my whole 30 at least. two days down 28 to go! Ate about 1,700 calories

    Day 12: May 25th 2011

    Meal 1: BAS with salmon

    Meal 2: guacamole,chicken breast,broccoli,pumpkin seeds, 2 eggs fried in CO,2 apples

    Exercise: 1 hour tumbling/jumping

    Assessment: Aww nuts, i ate fruit. Today i STRUGGLED to eat 1,300 calories, and the two apples were my last hope because i was so sick of veggies and meat by then and no nuts today, i still kept my carbs under 100g though…so thats good. I'm dissapointed though because i promised myself i wouldn't eat fruit, but it was dire, i was about to heat up some bacon! I don't look any skinnier but my face has cleared up a ton and i feel really good besides being tired alot (mostly from school). Only four more days of school. Have cheer tonight, i'm kinda full from Meal number 2, which took place over an hour and a half, yikes as usual. I really need to stop gorging myself to make up calories, i'm terrified of eating to much AND too little..what to do? Whenever i try and evenly space my calories out i end up binging and night. Is it awful if i eat 1000+ calories at once?

    Tomorrow is a No Fruit day.
