Well, today was supposed to be a really healthy low-calorie day and I totally blew it. It seems like my compulsive eating has come back with a vengeance. I don’t know if it’s because I’m “in-between” antidepressants (I recently changed the one I was on, and they typically take 6 weeks to kick in) and so I’m struggling, or what. Last night I wrote out exactly what I was going to eat and when, and I did good until 11:30 this morning but lunch was a disaster and then I just continued to eat all day. Though I did do decently at supper – I ate more salad than chicken and rice. But it was with full-fat ranch. So I don’t know what to do. I have been exercising a little, going for walks, but they don’t last very long. About 20-30 minutes. That doesn’t add up to many calories. I feel like I’m stuck in a rut. I guess tomorrow’s a new day, so I’ll try and try until I get it right.
I’m doing a smoothie-only diet this week. I know all the pros and cons; mostly it’s just to see if I could do something like this. My next step might be intermittent fasting. We’ll see how it goes.
So tomorrow’s meal plan looks like this:
8 AM – Smoothie #1 (with added protein powder) (236)
10:30 AM -Smoothie #3 (242)
12 PM – Smoothie #1 (with added protein powder) (236)
2:30 PM – Smoothie #6 (301 calories)
5 PM – Smoothie #8 (with added protein powder) (400)
Total: 1415 calories
