slow and steady

what I've noticed happening is that I'll try to lose lots of weight quite fast, then end up just gaining it back just as quickly. I've upped my calorie intake to 500-1600 depending on the day. I've started long runs (8-12miles) and I know I'll need to eat loads to keep my body from just shutting off and being super tired or being really sore the next day. 500 is for days that I'm just doing nothing. Like today. I'm sick so I'll probably just walk for an hour and do some core exercises. Maybe a little yoga.

In terms of food,  I've decided simply to renounce whatever comes in a package like protein bars, processed wheat products, dairy (I sometimes use it as a laxative because I'm lactose intolerant), and processed energy/sports drinks. When I simply eat natural foods, avoid gluten, and have some packaged vegan foods (I love Boca burgers, no shame), my calorie count naturally stays pretty low. So I'm going to stick to that.

Even though I've probably eaten 2100 calories a couple of days this week, my weight is steadily dropping again. I'm back down to 132 from 135-ish. I hope to get to my goal weight before college. This gives me roughly a year to lose 40-50 pounds. I can do it. I'm just going to stick with super natural, healthy stuff.

I got an online trainer so I'm doing her workouts for the next 30 days or so. I'm pretty psyched. They are definitely challenging and different from anything I've ever done.

I'll keep y'all updated.

ABC Diet day 1: 500

So I consumed 117/500 today and did a super intense treadmill workout. I also changed my sheets, did laundry, and cleaned most of the trash out of my room. Which I've meant to do since the beginning of break. Tomorrow is organizing and AP bio and a 40 minute workout on 3 different machines (check out for the workout I completed tonight and the workout I'm doing tomorrow)

My dad comes home tonight so hopefully ill get to see some of him before he goes to work tomorrow morning.

Here is the recipe for a salad that I had today, which was surprisingly filling:
6 leaves of romaine
2 strips of tofurkey brand smoky maple tempeh
And about 2 T of shredded Brussels sprout salad. It was very oily so I didn't have much but it had great flavor and was very satiating.

Best to everyone for tomorrow(:

Fuck Resolutions

But actually. I do have goals for the New Year but I think calling them Resolutions is risky. Most people go into their resolutions really intensely on January 1, but by January 10, apparently most of them drop out. I'm going to approach these goals slow and steady. I'm not going to go to the gym and exercise like crazy just because I want to make a habit of going to the gym regularly. in fact, I might post-pone that one because I'm a little afraid of how many people made New Years resolutions to go to the gym more.

All  I can say is that I really really really want running shoes already. I'm starting to get a little stir crazy! Believe me, the elliptical is a completely different experience from running outside, by the beach or on the wood chips.

Anyway, here's all the stuff that I want to accomplish or will accomplish in 2013 (which will be going on a page eventually):

1. lose 10 pounds
2. lose 20 pounds
3. lose 30 pounds
4. lose 40 pounds
5. clean my room
6. meet my German penpal
7. run 10 miles
8. get my splits
9. exercise every morning, even if its just stretching
10. complete the ABC diet
11. do a hot yoga class
12. go on a date
13. blog more regularly
14. learn how to make silver prints
15. read some really kick ass books 
16. fit back into my size 0 jeans 
17. trying to be less messy (I'm known as "the organized mess" or "pigpen") 
18. take a class at the gym
19. go to prom
20. drink a green juice
21. get a job somewhere
22. do my makeup and hair somewhat regularly
23. start wearing jewelry again
24. make some friends outside of my high school

Skinny Me (100-110lbs)

Day 0

I want my day one to be on New Year's Day so I'm doing a Day 0 post with pics and measurements!

Today I'm out with family and they know I've got an eating problem so I will likely be eating somewhere between 1000-1800 calories today. Just glad that I've got tomorrow to kick things off with ABC. I'll obviously have to start thinking of excuses to avoid people now though. 

Weight: 133. 5
Calves: 13
Wrist: 5.5
Bicep: 9.5
Thigh: 22.5
Hips: 36
Waist: 28

My legs are so bulky from running a lot. My thighs are already huge and running just makes the muscle bulk up. My body type is also pretty straight. I wish I had a tiny waist and a cuter belly button. Is that weird? Yes, that is weird. 

Anyway, hope you all have a good day, wishing you the best of luck!

My New Weight loss diary

After a bad week, I am still determined. I'm officially back on track again. My family went on vacation and I officially lost control. It's officially back to disordered eating, feast or famine. Which really sucks because getting back to "normal" is getting farther and farther from my reach. Whatever. I'm back on track and losing weight again.

I made a notebook with all sorts of things to help me stay on track: logs, countdowns, lists. So here are some pages from it! Maybe it will inspire you to make your own :)
