Oatmeal with cinnamon
Hard boiled egg
Steamed broccoli, green beans, and cucumbers
Mixed vegetables and turkey stir-fry
Pork sausage (I should eat less of this, it’s got soooo much sodium D:)
Steamed eggplant and daikon
1 hour jazz dance (which was like 15 minutes of actual dancing)
30 minutes abs/butt/arm/cardio circuit
Good eating day minus the candy I had at lunch D: I hate it when my friends just have candy lying around because it’s sooo tempting and I just want to eat it all. I mean I only had a few pieces so I don’t really care. Everything in moderation, right?
LOL it’s so funny at jazz dance because my friends and I are complete newbies at the class. Everyone else has been dancing for 4+ years. We suck so much that the teacher consistently places us at the back for our routine. It makes me laugh.
Next great baker finale is on right now, tata lovelies :)

Banana with cinnamon
Sandwich - roast pork, turkey, spinach, salsa

20 minutes running

30 minutes ab/butt/arm exercises
Really good day. I reminded myself to eat in the afternoon, so I didn’t get a stomachache from hunger :D
On the treadmill I decided to run really fast (like almost a sprint) for 20 minutes instead of my usual light run. It was tough but I felt SO GOOD when I finished. I always have to remind myself of how awesome I’ll feel after a workout. Because I felt fucking amazing. And I set a personal record for 2 miles on my treadmill <3 <3
And my abs show up in more than one kind of lighting now, hurrah! lolol.
Eating was good today too. I’m obsessed with almond milk.
Kellogg’s all bran cereal with 1% milk
Steamed broccoli and cauliflower
Mixed beans with salsa (tasted like chili, yum!)
A lot of homemade sausage (lean pork)
Chicken and lettuce soup
Stirfried Chinese sprouts
Tofu with mixed vegetables
Rest day (none)
I keep forgetting to eat between lunch and supper. It’s usually a six hour time difference. I’m usually busy in the afternoon, and then the hunger hits full force in the form of a stomachache because I’ve neglected to eat -____- And then the stomachache persists for an hour or so, even when I do eat. So I have to consciously remember to eat something from now on.
And god. I can’t stop keeping a mental tabulation of the calories I’ve ate. Even though I told myself I was going to eat intuitively, I’ve fallen back to calorie counting. I have to try harder to forget about numbers. I’m sorry for not always being the greatest role model, guys. :(
2 slices rye bread with strawberry jam
Apple with cinnamon
Chilled spaghetti with tofu and veggies
1/3 cup cooked spaghetti
Broccoli, green beans, mushrooms, cucumber, a bit of a carrot
Cooked tofu with soy sauce and various other spices
Cashews, almonds, and a bit of chocolate chips (I had like 10 mini chocolate chips… but I really have to kill this habit D:)
Steamed green beans, broccoli, and shrimp
Sandwich - 1 slice rye bread, 1 scrambled egg, spinach, tomato, onion
A tiny bit of tofu and other various vegetables
60 minute run
30 minute walk
20 minutes of bicep curls
So today I had the brilliant idea of motivating myself to run. I really wanted to go to the library but I was like “YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO DO THAT UNTIL YOU RUN AN HOUR”. It took me half an hour to run to the library, then I was just aimlessly running laps around it to get another half an hour. So effing boring ;-; At least it wasn’t -50 celcius today… hahaha.
And then on the way home from the library, I was walking with my heavy bag of books. I decided to walk and do bicep curls (with the books) at the SAME TIME. I’M A FUCKING GENIUS. But not really because I looked so dumb walking down the street. But it was super effective and my arms are sore now.
Note to self: lunch was yummy, make again soon.
2 slices french toast (2 slices rye bread, 1 tbsp milk, 1 egg white, 1/2 tsp sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, cooking spray)

More boiled green beans
A little bit of bok choy/beef/tomato/egg/lotus root/whatever else my dad made
post workout snack
cashews and a bit of chocolate
30 minutes walk
This cardio workout
25 minutes abs/arms/butt strength stuff.
I was FAMISHED by the time supper came around. I didn’t have any snacks in the afternoon because I was at my friend’s house. I was offered a milkshake but I didn’t want any. I should bring an emergency apple with me everywhere. But then I think people would judge me… Oh the pains of sticking to healthy eating.
I’m going to start posting my intakes again! :D Hopefully this will be motivation for me to stay on track.
Oatmeal with cinnamon
1/2 slice rye bread
Hard boiled egg
Broccoli and seafood stirfry
A few bites of all bran cereal & grapes
Like 1/2 cup of cashews…? Oops. Gotta remember not to eat out of bottomless jar.
Bell pepper stuffed with chicken, onions, beans, salsa, and sprinkle of skim cheese
Spinach, apple, mandarin, radish, and onion salad
40 minute cardio/ab/arm circuit
Overall a really good day! :D I almost binged on cashews, but then I reminded myself that it was just a craving and I wasn’t really hungry. I proceeded to go on tumblr and then the craving died.
Oh and I never have salad with dressing anymore… I don’t even like the taste of dressing. After generally eating clean for months, fresh food tastes SO good by itself.
Ended up with 31+ grams of fiber. I feel so bloated right now. Oh god. At least it’s killed any post-supper cravings… :)
I just binged on peanut butter, chocolate chips, and cereal.
I’m forcing myself to write this because I need to be accountable. But the thing is, though I do feel like shit physically, I’m okay emotionally. I haven’t cried about it yet, which is improvement. Tomorrow is a new day and I vow to not starve myself or over-exercise; I know that one day of overeating won’t ruin weeks of progress. My body deserves the best. I’m stronger than my binge. I need to remind myself that it’s perfectly acceptable to be less than perfect.
This is how I kick my binge in the butt!

Obviously this meal/exercise plan isn’t sustainable, which is why I’m only doing it for one day. Tomorrow I’m resuming my regular intake and slightly less intensive workout. I hope to see some results on the scale. Goodbye excess weight!
I should not be allowed to socialize and eat.
Hello crackers and cereal binge.
I’m having my first peanut butter and banana sandwich tomorrow morning. I’m so pumped. And then I’m going to have my first peanut butter and jam sandwich the morning after that. Why have I been deprived all my life…
On another note, I’ve been increasing my calorie intake to 1000-1100 calories per day. It’s a lot easier to live this way. For the past week I was dumb and only had 700-800 calories per day. And I felt like shit. I was just tired and weak. I thought that if I ate less, I would lose more weight. Which sure, is probably true, but I think I’d rather have my health intact. And today I felt like I ate so much even though I didn’t actually :D And I felt great!
