My list of safe foods

August 28, 2012

A while ago I compiled a list of my ‘safe foods’, which are foods I’m most comfortable with eating when I’m restricting. You’ll probably see these foods a lot in my intake tag; it’s pretty much all I have when I start getting serious about losing weight and I’m not in binge mode. This is the edited version which includes new foods that I’ve started enjoying, like tomato soup for example.

– all fruits (ex. bananas)

– all vegetables

– fruit ice lollies

– rice cakes

– sugar free marshmallows

– low fat yogurt

– egg whites

– green tea

– diet drinks

– chewing gum

– sugar free jelly

– weight watchers tomato soup

These past few days I’ve been on binge mode because of my period. I hate myself for being so weak about it all and allowing my period to stop me from restricting which I was doing SO well with. I can’t seem to resist the cravings and hormones, apparently. When it’s over and done with I’m coming back on top form. I’ll be fasting until school starts again on the 6th of September, then I’ll eat 200 calories of fruits only for the weekend, and after I’ll maybe begin the ABC diet, I’m not sure.

So here’s the plan as it stands: when my period ends I will begin a 5 day fast right up until school starts, then on that Thursday I will only eat fruits and vegetable at a 200 calorie limit, and once it hits Monday I may or may not start the ABC diet (yes, I realise how unhealthy this plan is, please don’t lecture me).

This is so shit – my parents gave me over £200 for my birthday in May yet here I am with only £20 left of it. And why? Well, because I had to fork out £160 for my boyfriend to stay in a hotel for two nights. Arrghh, it’s so annoying. I don’t have a job and my parents don’t give me pocket money over the holidays, plus I can’t exactly ask them for more because they’ve already given me so much and they think I still have it. As you can imagine, my broke state made it really hard to buy anything today when I went grocery shopping without feeling incredibly guilty. Not because of the calories, but because of the money I was spending. I hate it.

Well then, it’s safe to say that today’s food shopping experience was no where near as fun as it usually is. Regardless, I bought four cans of Weight watcher’s tomato soup, a 12-pack of coke zero, two apples, a packet of melba toast (now down to 12 calories per slice!), special K chocolate cereal bars and low fat marshmallows with wafers.

Today’s intake:

B – apple (60) with toffee yogurt (88)

L – prawn salad (70) and diet coke (1)

S – marshmallow w/ wafer (50), raisins (42), diet coke (1)

D – tomato soup (76) w/ two slices of melba toast (24)

= 412 calories

That’s alright; it’s more than yesterday, but it’s still alright. I’ve managed to get in half an hour’s walk on the way to the supermarket and also did fifty sit ups on my bed. That is no where near I want to be doing but at least it’s something.

Yesterday’s intake

June 19, 2012

I didn’t have a change to log on here yesterday to record my intake (or the day before, for that matter, but it seems too late to write it down now – it was around 500 calories for those who are interested) so I’m going to write it here before I dash off to school:

B – boiled egg white (17) and medium apple (45)

L – orange melon (50)

S – mini pretzels (95), one small tangerine (23), some bread (50), diet coke (1)

D – tomato soup (76) w/ two slices of melba toast (26)

= 383 calories

Considering I have recently increased my calorie limit to 600, eating only 383 calories in a day seems like nothing. I won’t lie though, I feel pretty proud of myself. Here’s to another great day and reaching goals!

New beginnings

March 25, 2012

I’m starting a new, stricter diet from tomorrow. I will only allow myself to consume 100 calories or less, from the list below.

Allowed foods/drinks:

– all fruits (ex. bananas)

– all vegetables

– fruit ice lollies

– rice cakes

– low fat yogurt

– egg whites

– green tea

– diet drinks

– chewing gum

– sugar free jelly

I’ll also be sticking rigidly to my new exercise regime, and this will go on for 20 days. I won’t be weighing myself during this time.
