hi..yeah i dont normally do the 'well hey there! read what i ate today, for entertainment, then evaluate me!' but i feel really out of control. i think its the pms thing. or maybe the backlash from having plotted out the EXACT amount of every vitamin etc for so long and now eating what i feel like when i feel like it. eee. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
today. (its only 1pm. got up at 6. not usually hungry. but the last two days i could've eaten a horse. its really scaring me, to be honest.)<br><br><br><br>
piece of spelt bread with tomato paste and tbs of avocado<br><br>
1 high fibre blueberry vegan cookie (3gms fibre, 8 sugar..from fruit juice. pfft. thats so not any better. why am i back to counting?! blame it on pms..everything is freaking me out today!), black coffee,<br><br><br><br>
huge green apple, 5 almonds,<br><br>
3/4 cup bio plain fat free yogurt<br><br><br><br>
4 ricecakes (no marg. this time. went overboard on chocolate last night. not feeling very..oily :/ ...)...or was that not even today? not keeping track is really scary! i dont even KNOW what ive eaten! plus i couldn't resist the urge...i put in todays activities and im meant to eat like..1400 calories. OH DEAR GOODNESS. i generally average around 1800. and today im going out for dinner!<br><br><br><br>
anyway..<br><br><br><br>
soy latte<br><br>
5 more almonds<br><br><br><br>
2 ricecakes and a slice of extra light cheese (cheese is included now, wholy mackeral! i was gonna have bread but decided to quit with the so many grains thing...but that failed miserably down the track..)<br><br><br><br>
a carrot<br><br><br><br>
1.5 weetbix,<br><br><br><br>
another high fibre cookie.<br><br><br><br>
?? and im going out to dinner. meant to have greens, tempeh and rice or one of these vegan pumpkin mushroom pesto pizzas or something. i was so pumped. now really really not. and thats not til 6. and im gonna be hungry way before then. i dont know why..but i could literally cry right now. sigh. everythings been great. what is WRONG with me<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"><br><br><br><br>
and what happened to not caring? i still don't..but have this rising horrible panic. and i dont even know why. or..how. or ...AAAAAAAA.<br><br><br><br>
and the stupid thing is...if i wasn't going out for dinner tonight id probably have eaten way less, because i would've had the stirfry i was craving for lunch etc but i thought id 'save' my big green veggie meal for tonight. so i filled the void with other crap. i was so determined to make today good. what the heck..is..argh..i...argh.

Hurrah, I'm not the only one who feels out of control. I tried not planning anything today... ha! Never again. I'm blocking today out of my mind and getting back on track tomorrow.<br><br><br><br>
But honestly? The freedom that comes with being able to eat what you want, when you want, without guilt is beautiful. Keep trying! Honestly, things even out enough that you don't need to plan your eating around your activity level. Your body naturally balances it- if you're at a healthy weight, you'll be hungrier after heavy activity and won't have much of an appetite if you've been mostly sedentary. Your body can take care of itself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Have you gone out yet? If you do... eat what you want! Your body needs nutrition. 1400 calories is less than I need if I sit on my butt all day, and I'm very short. (I need 1600 calories a day with no activity.) You honestly haven't overeaten at all. I'm not saying it just to make you feel better, I'm saying it because it's true!<br><br><br><br>
You just need to let yourself eat. You can do it, I believe in you!<br><br><br><br>
Take care of yourself <33 If you ever want to talk, I'm here.

I feel for you with the appetite. I'm wondering if it's just my body's way of trying to save its skin? Next thing I'm going to start gnawing paint off the wall.<br><br><br><br>
I hope dinner rocks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Well, that wasn't snarky at all.<br><br><br><br>
I'm glad things are looking brighter <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> I think that one of the benefits of NaNoWriMo starting is that I'm literally not going to have the time to stress over food, ha. One of these days I'm going to lose my mind.

Keelin, I'm sorry you took it that way. It's wasn't snarky, instead, gentle prodding. My apologies. This is a serious matter.

Sounds reasonable to me, taurus. Enjoy yourself!!! It must be hard not to plan, but go for it!!<br><br><br><br>
Most of the above are right - your body knows what it wants!<br><br><br><br>

Just eat.<br><br><br><br>
The fact that you can tell us how many almonds you ate says you're definitely not overeating. And even if you were to overeat one day.... who cares? What's the worst thing that could happen?

I'm sure you were "meant" to have more than 1400 calories. I don't know where you're getting this information, but most things I've read put that as the absoloute minimum for a dieting inactive adult. Eat if you're hungry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
