I set a goal for myself yesterday.
Jump rope for 20 minutes instead of the 10 minutes I had managed the day before.
And I reached my goal.
Just had such an amazing workout at home. Lasted for at least an hour.
Jumped rope for the first time since the summer and then did a Back&Bi’s dvd. I’m already sore but feeling good.
Get on it.
Jogged outside today.
Did at least a half of a mile ( and then had to walk the same distance back). It doesn’t seem like much but for me this is HUGE because if there’s anything I hate more than running it’s running OUTSIDE (I will occasionally frequent a treadmill though). But for some reason this morning when I walked out the door to go to the gym, my body led me to the bike trail across the street and I just went with it.
I should have done some type of abs when I got back, but I ended up just drinking water and eating breakfast. But yay for exercise.
Feeling out of control again.
Not with eating, as in I want to eat more. But with NOT eating. With all of the posts I’m seeing about the “dangers of calorie restricting”, I’m starting to get paranoid and anxious. I actually almost made an appoint to see a nutritionist of campus. But then I got worried that I’d start gaining weight if I changed my diet.
It’s not like I’m really restricting myself any more than any other person on a diet. I eat 3 meals a day (except for my busy days) and I always feel full after them. The only thing I’m really restricting myself from are the sweets and fats that any person on a diet would avoid (and I don’t even do that all too well). But I do have an average caloric intake well below what’s generally advised.
I think once I’ve reached my UGW, I’ll think about seeing the nutritionist to talk about how to maintain. But I’m too afraid to go beforehand.
