Using my bad eating habits for good!
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
I'm still having trouble eating enough, even though my calories were reduced to
1,310 - 1,660. Either that or I get really hungry late at night. So I'm making an effort to eat right after I get up, and right after exercise. Hopefully this will adjust my appetite. The problem is that I'm never hungry. Well, one of my bad habits is eating in front of the computer or the tv. I can shovel down vast amounts of food, hungry or not! So I'm using my bad habits to help me get enough calories.
Another thing I'm not used to yet is that there's so much more food when it's healthy! Today I made curried lentils with tuna. It's pretty good, but there's a lot of it. So I ate half for lunch and half for a snack.
On the exercise front, I saved up and got EA Sports Active. I started the 30 day challenge today, and it's exhausting. I'm starting at the lowest intensity - I tried medium and couldn't complete it. I don't think it's giving me quite enough of a strength workout, since it can't do ab exercises, so on my rest days I will go back to my ballet dvd. When I get more endurance, I'd like to use Active as a supplement and still do my 20 minute cardio dvds. I just need to remember not to get impatient!
