Divine intervention by the gods of weight-loss
Last night while on a post-dancing hunger kick me and my friends went on a mission to find junk food at 2am… Unfortunately I had an intense craving for ice cream. FORTUNATELY, the Dairy Queen late-night takeout was closed and McDonald’s was out of ice cream. I took it as a sign that I really shouldn’t be eating ice cream - or any junk food - at 2am and I didn’t get...
This is amazing
Seventeen: You've said girls should embrace their curves. Why did you think it important to make that statement?
Jennifer Lawrence: When I was playing Mystique in X-Men, I remember thinking, If I'm going to be naked in paint in front of the entire world, I'm going to look like a woman. I'm going to have curves and have boobs and have a butt. Because girls are going to look at that, and if I look like a scarecrow, they are going to think, Oh, that's normal. It's not normal. I'm just so sick of these young girls with diets. I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic. I thought it was crazy. I went home and told my mom, "Nobody's eating bread--I just had to finish everyone's burgers". I think it's really important for girls to have people to look up to and feel good about themselves.
Spent the better part of the day in bed.
Hate being sick.
Had a chocolate binge...
and then had a good workout sesh and burned off most of it so my binge fit into my calorie goal for the day. Win! :)
Gluten is not my friend.
I feel so awful.
Just binged on a whole bunch of chocolate chips. And yesterday I drank too much alcohol and ate too much junk. Staying healthy on St. Paddy’s day weekend ended up being a fail. At least it only comes once a year!
time for the gym!
Found out one of the campus cafeterias makes...
Uh oh, dangerous discovery. And they’re good, too…
It's soo nice out.
Went on an hour long walk yesterday and today I went to the park and read outside. Can’t wait to take lots of walks :)
I'm scared I'm eating too few calories...
Kind of a weird thing to say, right? Well, I did a BMR calculation and for my height and activity level (lightly active) I can eat less than 1886.5 calories and lose weight. Myfitnesspal has me at 1530 per day and I don’t usually go over 1200 net calories… Going gluten and dairy free has made me eat a lot of lower-calorie foods, which is great, but I’m scared I’m not...
Saved by the Gluten!
Today, while I was studying I was suddenly overwhelmed with a craving for some kind of junk food. I went to the vending machine and bought a bag of Miss Vickie’s Salt and Malt Vinegar chips without thinking. I looked at the calories and immediately felt guilty for buying an unhealthy snack. Thankfully, I realized that I hadn’t checked the ingredients for gluten… sure enough it...
It's gorgeous out!
Sun is shining, feels like Spring is on its way and I’m having a wonderful day. Hope everyone else is having a great day as well :)
For the past few days - since I started avoiding gluten and dairy - I keep eating under 1200 calories per day. I’m kinda terrified of this whole “starvation mode” thing, but I’m also kinda scared of eating things that may screw up my “experiment”. I guess I should be eating more good fats like peanut butter, nuts and stuff like that to get my calorie intake a...
