Day 3 Recap:
1,417 calories in / 700 out through exercise / 717 net
They sell oatmeal cookie halo top at my local store now!!! Everything!
Made some french onion soup for dinner last night with minimal butter so it was more of an onion soup but still hit the spot. Took another long Serial walk followed by a trip to the gym for a quick run and some anaerobic stuff, I’ve been watching more fitness vids on youtube and kind of want to start putting more work into body recomposition rather than just “cutting,” as soon as I feel ready which is not quite yet. I’ve gone three nights without drinking now which feels amazing but I guess i didn’t drink enough water last night, I feel a little murky today. Have also been more panicky these last few days than I thought I’d be and part of that is getting back into food counting and stuff and I guess part of that is that Ben’s been working all day everyday so I don’t have someone to talk to, which physiologically regulates my breathing and heartbeat and whatnot. Maybe I’ll clean my bathtub today and take a bath or something if it comes back today.
Anyway! Onto the next. I’m choosing to create my deficit with exercise/cardio rather than keeping to my regularly scheduled daily calorie goal, until the anxiety goes away. Though I do feel like this is a pretty sustainable way to be, and if my fitbit is telling the truth that’s a pretty low baseline deficit. (always happy to eventually eat more!)
