Today was tough, and I've been emotional. After my first cheat this morning, I got a call from my friend who is really against severe diets...at least it seems she is...she told me she was reading about this diet & was urging me to not do it, because it's "not natural" and it's "messing with hormones" and that she thought I was going to ruin my metabolism and otherwise screw my body up. She was telling me that she missed the high-energy girl who ran 4 miles almost every day. She was really breaking down my reserve, telling me that I may never be able to eat carbs without gaining weight ever again.....and now I have to do more research because I'm second - guessing myself about this now.
Today's cheat (I chalk the whole day up to a Big Misstep):
apple fritter: 560 cal
plain m&m's: 240 cal
slice cheese pizza: 600 cal
1 tbsp mayo: 100 cal
1 slice bread: 75 cal
100 grams chicken: 170 cal
3 tbsp whole milk: 27 cal
4 tbsp pad thai noodles: 125 cal
grand total: 1897 cal
Well. I'm thinking that I need an attitude change. I need some coping skills, too. I'm off to read others' blogs and to do some more research.
