Last week didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. Even though I cheated a bit less, I also ate fewer meals, so I remained at 77% compliance.
Anyway, there's a new habit this week:
1. Take a multi-vitamin and fish oil each day. (Breakfast and dinner)
2. Save the most carb dense foods for after exercise.
3. Eat a lean protein with every meal and snack. 4. Eat a minimum of 4 meals a day.
There are two situations that cause me to eat an unplanned cheat meal: When I'm at my family's, and when I go more than 5 hours without eating. Number 4 should help with the latter.
I'm SO bad at this. Thats one of the changes Im supposed to be making. Im supposed to be aiming for 6 small meals a day. Normally I eat.......... 2.
I'm working on that.
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
I know it's tricky for me at times. The problem is that in order for me to eat 4-6 meals, I have to eat smaller meals so I'm actually hungry 2-4 hours later. So if for some reason I miss a meal, I feel like I'm starving and end up eating way too much later on.
So, my challenge so far has been a TOTAL bust!! I can't help it!
1. My house sitting fridge is full of food that will go bad if someone doesn't eat it.
2. My parents have been doing the grocery shopping lately. That's never a good thing.
BUT I did get this awesome smoothie book from half-price books.. I think I'll try it out. What can it hurt, right? :3 They sound good.
I think I'm going back to my favorite cookbook though.. I think my parents will just have to deal with me not eating their food, or conforming to what I am cooking for myself.
Nothing will keep me 100% on track though until I get my own place. So i'll just try my best for the day-to-day things.
So far, today I ate some terrible for me Brie+sausage thingies+mustard+bread sandwich combo... thing.
I think I'll eat some hummus and veggies and maybe some tuna with crackers for lunch...
Whatever is for dinner. :3 and maybe some awesome smoothie for a fourth meal. I need to be eating more, and smaller, meals.
