    Lauren Get's Down and Primal (; ~Summer Journal~

    Shop Now
    Starting a new journal, my old one was too messy for me.
    This is my summer journal, i'm really determined to get my body in peak condition. I suffered from bulimia/anorexia for a short time and i have since upped my calorie intake considerably and i am waiting for my period to return. I am a 15year girl, i'm upsessed with being healthy( not in a bad way). I want to lower my BF% and look goood. I don't weigh myself because it triggers me but last time i checked i was 113, before i started eating more. At 5'2 inches tall i would like my weight to be around 105, but that may not be possible, i wouldn't know. Haha i have a very small frame and almost all my fat is in my belly leaving me with skinny legs and a round midsection(Yuck!).

    I plan on incorporating way more exercise in once school is out(three more weeks, YES) and feel free to post with advice,tips,tricks etc. And if i'm doing something wrong, TELL ME, i'd rather know and fix it, you won't hurt my feelings.

    Day 0: May 13th 2011

    Goals: Technically I haven't even started till tomorrow. + I'm sick. My goals are to keep carbs under 120g, eat 1,500ish calories, Wait till I'm hunger to eat My 2nd Meal

    Meal 1: (Binged) Blueberries w/half & half, Costco Chicken Salad, Costco Rotisserie Chicken,1 Apple, Banana, Lara Chocolate Chip Brownie Bar,1 piece Ghiradelli 60% Dark chocolate Handful of Macadamia Nuts,almonds,cashews and raisins (1000 calories)
    ~Ate bad food, No more Lara Bars,cashews,almonds,banana,raisin,apple till Monday
    No chocolate or Macadamia nuts tomorrow

    Meal 2: A FRS Energy Drink, Barbacoa,Cheese,Guacamole,Fajita Veggies,Romaine Lettuce,Salsa(Green tomatillo) - I got chipotle (465 Calories)
    ~No more cheese until next week (Monday) No avacado,nightshades or onions tomorrow

    Exercise: Been home sick all day

    Assessment: I really feel sluggish, from sickness and lack of movement. I got around my calorie ratio, but i had highish carbs. No snacking today at least. But i did binge, and i didn't really feel hungry all day. My ratios are also not ideal, too much fat for how much carbs i ate + barely made it on protein grams.

    Tomorrow i CANNOT eat onions,avacados,bell peppers,lara bars,macadamia almonds or cashews,chocolate,cheese,bananas or apples,and raisins

    Calories/Ratios/Grams
    : ~1,503 Calories. Fat: 84grams,20.6 Saturated, 48%. Carbs:128.4grams,29.8g Fiber,71.6g Sugar, 32%. Protein: 80.2g, 20%.

    Day 1: May 14th 2011

    Goals: Listen to my hunger. Eat only what i am supposed to, no binging and no snacking!

    Meal 1: Cabbage Soup, Costco Chicken Salad, 1 egg (~300 calories)

    Meal 2: Had a 'bunless burger' (ground beef,lettuce,onion,cheese,thousand island dressing,pickle) with french fries

    Meal 3: Macadamia Nuts,Chicken Salad, 4egg whites,strawberries,whey protein and half and half

    Exercise: Two hours of tumbling,stunting,jumping and stretching

    Assessment
    : I wasn't supposed to eat onions OR cheese OR Macadamia nuts. I'm very dissapointed in myself for not having the willpower to not eat them,but i kept my carbs low and my calories where in the highish range... I'm not sure if i ate to much fat, but i got my protein around the right amount, not a lot of meat in my house right now though. I didn't binge or snack (my dinner was over an hour though because i had people in my house). And i only ate when i was hungry for the most part so yay for me on that note. Tomorrow i WILL stick to my limitations and try my best to eat right

    Tomorrow (and today) i CANNOT eat onions,half and half,whey protein,avacados,bell peppers,lara bars,macadamia almonds or cashews,chocolate,cheese,bananas or apples,and raisins

    Calories/Ratios/Grams: ~1,790 calories. Fat: 115g,27.9 saturated,57%. Carbs: 82g,14.7g fiber,25.4g sugar, 18%. Protein: 114.4g, 25%.

    Hey - suggestion: don't count your macronutrients so obsessively. That is going to hinder your recovery efforts!
    Relax a bit. You're not fat by ANY stretch. I understand you wanna lose fat/inches, so do I. But live your life, enjoy it and break free from the ED mentality, that should be your NUMBER ONE priority right now. If you stress less, you'll be less likely to binge/beat yourself up. I had popcorn and key lime pie yesterday. I know I probably am not losing weight. But that's OK, I just move on now and set my priorities straight and I don't go run it off at the gym either!! Good luckkk

    I'm only counting right now to get an idea of how much i've been eating since i have gained so much fat on my body recently, quite unattractive.. I don't plan on keeping it up and i'm making sure i don't get obsessive! It's just a temporary thing haha. Thanks for the concern though

    by making so many rules/guidelines and expectancies here your setting yourself up for binging, 'disobeying' and unable to follow through with your goals.

    all your goals are mental goals, problem one
    there shouldnt be any food that is today, everyother day, once a week etc...again set up for a restrictive mentality

    my advice, is to simply see primal for what it is. there is food and there is stuff that aint food, and never will be. dont put ANY FOOD OFF LIMITS. what i mean, mac nuts will exist everyday, as a possible food. you cant change this. mac nuts are food and they are available every single day. so, you CAN have them every single day. instead of figuring out what you cant have or need to restrict allow yourself to accept primal food and the possibility that every primal food will be available to you everyday. when it is never off limits, it loses its appeal and you lose your mental attachment to it.

    its a hard 'idea' to grasp and take hold of but once you do you start to slowly come around to the notion that food is just food. it will always be there and mentally placing rules upon yourself(which is all a mental game) will not assist you in meeting your goals. leveling out your mindset toward food will allow you to achieve your goals

    I see what your saying, but i feel that this works better for me - not restricting anything and i've steadily gained over the past MONTH. i tried giving it time to 'level out' but all i can see is more fat on my body and i feel like its necessary to put 'rules' on myself, at least until i'm semi-happy with my body.
