On My Way to 3000 Calories...

Have you entered my Bodybugg Giveaway yet or passed the information on to someone who would like it? I would love your help in getting it to someone who it will help get healthier!

Good afternoon!! Or good other time of day for a few of you. I am still riding on kind of a high from all of my good feelings yesterday. I also ate NON STOP all day yesterday. It was weird to do that…at one point in my life that would sound like the makings of a glorious day but I realized that’s really not who I am now. I got so tired of eating, but I was really trying to go all fruits and veggies and keep up my calories. I did it though! I feel like I’ve used some kind of reverse psychology on myself though, like I ate so much that I can’t help but be convinced that I don’t ever want to eat all the time again.

Here is how I did yesterday:
Burned 2974 calories
Consumed 1291 calories
Deficit of 1683 calories – geez!

Today will be easier. It’s Day 4! Having some delicious and refreshing milk today along with all of my other stuff and then it’s time to really evaluate what it is that I want to keep in my life and what it is that I want to cut out…or at least scale back on. I wonder if financially I will be able to budget to eat all or mostly organic and fresh stuff all the time. I think I can, at least I can until the next time I run into a buttery fuschia leather Valentino work of art (what can I say, I LOVE handbags) at 30% off…and then it might all just go down the drain!

I’m also starting to think about how I’m going to slowly reintroduce things into my diet. I don’t want to go overboard all meat and rice explosion tomorrow, but I also don’t want to keep my calories this low after I worked so hard to get them up! So I started this morning working on a VERY detailed meal plan for the rest of the month – that doesn’t provide for eating out (ok maybe one celebratory meal while I am wedding dress shopping with bff-Jen...yay!!!!!), which is something I should cut back on anyway. It’s one of those days that I love my OCD and I love Microsoft Excel. And this really fits in with my August goals of finishing the Biggest Winner strong and being better at meal planning!

My other goal for the day is to make this one of my 3000 calories burned days. After my lunchtime hike with my wonderful coworker, the same amazing person that gave me my Bodybugg – I am well on my way. And I feel great!  So...I'm cutting this blog entry short to go do some fabulous exercising!
