I feel like I am in a new relationship. Everything is new and fresh and exciting. I’m a bit obsessed. Counting calories is all I seem to talk about. Hopefully the honeymoon will be over soon, I’m getting tired of hearing me.
I’m learning a lot but I am having a hard time with portion sizes of things I cook. 😦 I know I should be eating only 1 cup of pasta but guesstimating that is not as easy as it should be. Moving forward I think it’s just easier for me to give up pasta. 1 cup is just not enough.
Yesterday I spent my time with Jillian. As a result I was under my total calories for the day. My boss, who is a regular dieter, warned me against having too many days under as my body will go into starvation mode. 😦 Not a problem. Today I was way over, like 700 calories over. 😦 I just couldn’t eat enough. I did not bring enough filling snacks.
I went to the grocery store after work and stocked up on some fresh veggies and fruit. I think I went over budget in the process. 😦 But hopefully real food will help with the constant hunger.
I think going to bed earlier will also help.
