Can't be too unhappy with that! Ate much less junk today. I did eat some garlic bread with dinner though and a weight watchers dessert, but I can't he too disappointed.
I had a chicken and salad sandwich for lunch and it was so delicious. It really sets you up for a good day! So much better than the chinese and cheaper too who would have thought? Anyway. I'm tired and I have rowing in the morning.
It's ok but not by any means great. I'm not putting enough effort in. And without effort I don't DESERVE results.
So I'm thinking of setting myself a goal of eating as clean as possible food. Fresh fruits, veggies I prepared myself and simple meats I've cooked and know what's in them.
I've been eating too much junk. Even if it was in the calories limit, which it wasn't, it's not making me any healthier.
So even though the weekend is coming up and I'm poor, in going to push myself to eat only healthy for the next three days at least. I'm sure I'll feel better for it anyway.
I think I will still eat a bit if bread and probably porridge too, but no junk like doughnuts or hot chocolates or anything. If I want a snack I can have fruit or nuts. Not things that come individually wrapped. I'm living in such a consumer world. I'd rather not.
If I can be bothered I'll get to the shops early tomorrow and get fresh foods for the day. I need to earn this.
Ok today was shocking. It's amazing the terrible food choices you make when you are tired. Funnily enough mum just read in this months Australian Woman's Health that that is the number one reason woman make unhealthy food choices.
So today I had to leave Sydney at 4:45 to get to work on time. I was exhausted before I even got to work. Since I had a busy Tuesday too (rowing at 5 then work then driving to Sydney) I didn't deal real well with the early morning start.
By 11 I was absolutely starving but thankfully got busy at work and didn't get a chance to eat until 12. However I was too tired to walk to the food court to get a healthy sandwich so I got Chinese from Next door. But not only that I really convinced myself the Chinese would be delicious and warm and what I needed to feel full the rest of the day.
What a joke. It was pretty nice for the first few mouthfulls but then it messed with my sensitive and already irritated bowels (dinner on Tuesday was nachos and chocolate pancakes with ice cream. Really yum but super rich!) and made me feel sooo sick for hours. I got all bloated and had to down peppermint tea. Not great when your at work. I even had to go to the bathroom and pull my tights down a bit. So yeah Chinese was a bad idea.
Then I got home and saw a subway cookie on the bench and for some reason I still had no self control and ate it. Then knowing I didn't have many calories left for the day I still had 2 burritos for dinner. So that took me 200 cals over. Then after netball my friend Sarah wanted to get mcflurries so I agreed. So that's how I got where I got. I'm exhausted and today's choices don't make me feel any better.
So now I'm off to sleep so I feel ok tomorrow. I do have rowing but it's supposed to snow/sleet/rain so fingers crossed just this once it's cancelled. I know you don't get to the Olympics by sleeping in, but I need this. Just once.
Erh I gained 700 grams!!! I am moving my calories back down to 1200 and I'll move them back up when I've built more muscle. I'm so annoyed. Less than 4 weeks until the night of excellence abd I'm going backwards! So I'm going to have to work my butt off to get back down!!!!
Today was nice. A day off for me. Cleaned my room, including cmcacuuming dust off my blinds and washing the window. It's nice in here now. Not that it was messy, just the jobs like washing sheets and vacuuming carpet that I never do often enough!
I did a bit of study too. Nothing much though. I find it too hard to get into the class. So that's a scarey prospect because it's already week 5.
Did some wii again and went to the gym. I need my posture to improve! Rowing in the morning which I'm looking forward too. Then I quick trip to Sydney tomorrow afternoon (about 4 hours away) to go to a camp America meeting to see of I can be a camp counsellor next year!!! I've always wanted to go to the USA so this is a great chance to get in!
So early night for me tonight. Have a great day everyone!
I had both an incredible day and exhausting day yesterday. I had rowing first thing for an hour and half then the gym. Then I went out for brunch and shopping with mum and indulged in a 950 cal breakfast of eggs, bacon, fried tomato, home made baked beans and toast and it was INCREDIBLE. The type of thing I should eat after rowing but dont have time to make before work (at least that's the excuse).
Then shopping for hours which meant walking which was good for my stiffer by the minute muscles. Then we came home eventually and had salad for lunch and did some yoga for stretching. So ideal! Then we collapsed on the couch and had a nap while watching Olympics. And we had roast chicken and salad for dinner. Delicious and low cal really! Such a great day.
Today I woke up late with a sore back. But my legs were pretty well ok. My coach says I am hunching too much at the catch in rowing, which is just before you put your oars in and do a stroke. So the Saturday work out I focused on that and now I'm just Paying for it. But I've always known I need to work on my posture.
We pulled out the wii fit today. So I've been doing a bit of yoga on that and muscle exercises for posture and balance. Those are good building blocks for everything, not just my rowing.
I will eventually go see my nutritionist friend when I can afford to. She should be able to help me set up a great sport plan to be the gear athlete I can be. Really worth the investment I think!
So tomorrow is my day off so like I said I need to clean my room and do uni work and throw in some exercise too. Oh yeah I've been dobbed in to do a 5k run in 6 weeks so I've got to get training for that too. I'm sure it's mostly social dj the going won't be too tough! I sure hope anyway.
That's about it for today. I hope you all had great weekends!!!
Oh in all of that I forgot to add my weight at gym yesterday was 68.5 so that is still a 1.5 loss to them and I lost centimetres everywhere. Not as great as I wanted but I haven't been feeling light the last couple of days. I need to rid myself of bloating! But it's my own personal weigh in tomorrow. Depressing!
