1.30 - 8.30
Deck of Cards Circuit [Timed 22:20] - Do people actually know what that is, or did my trainer make it up?
10 kneeling pull ups, 10 box jumps, 10 mountain climbers [x3]
Some ab thingy where I lean at an angle and throw an 8lbs medicine ball back and forth with my trainer (I forgot what it's called)
Breakfast: Dates (we didn't have any eggs in the morning ) and a sweet potato frittata after my work out, and after i went grocery shopping (2 whole eggs, 3 egg whites)
Lunch: Livers of something or the other (I don't know, my dad made it. It was yummy though!)
Dinner: Pineapple and strawberry platter
Snacks: Half can of tuna, 85% sugarfree dark chocolate, handful walnuts + almonds
Thoughts and stuff:
Today was good. I think. I was actually going to end the day on around 800 calories, and I had this sick "yessss low calories" sense of satisfaction. So I got out the strawberry/pineapple platter and as soon as I started eating it I realized I was actually really hungry. Even now, knowing I ate 1400 makes me feel weird, lol. I still feel like i've somehow miscalculated, and I'm actually at 200000 calories (just an exaggeration, before anyone jumps to shoot me!). But I'm getting better. And I'm trying to listen to my body more, and not obsess over the calories. Today my trainer decided to mention that I could eat as much protein + low carb veggies that I wanted. Aaaand she told me eating fat is key to fat loss. I sat there like " that's amazing" and in the back of my mind I was like "yay primal!!". I really hope I get to a point where I'm super committed to primal. I love it, and I know how good it makes me feel. But I keep letting myself have free days and stuff. I think it's because I just jumped into primal and went cold-turkey. I'm going to try and ease into it. As long as most of my food choices are primal, I'm happy.
I had a few interesting run ins with people today, but before I ramble about it in my journal (is anyone even going to read this, though haha) I'm going to sit and analyze it like the over-thinker that I am. I've also babbled enough anyway, and I wouldn't want to scare everyone off of the journal right off the bat
I walk slow, take my hand, help me on my way.
