So a few questions on the six week challenge - the rule is that there is no rules. It doesn't matter if you have 6kgs or 6lbs to lose or if you just want to tighten up on your calorie intake or workout routine - the point is thus: By breaking it down into 6 weeks with 1 mini goal per week leading up to one mega pay off (for me, it's getting skinny again), I believe that we are making this more attainable. I was thinking this morning while I was walking to work that I need to ONLY lose 1kg by Monday. This morning, I weighed at 65.4kg - so I've already lost half a kg. So if I want to lose 1kg in two days and then coast, increase my intake a little bit (avoid a binge) then I will. Just one measly kg. I think that sometimes I focus on the bigger picture too much and then lose sight. There HAS to be a way to get back down to my skinny self and I've been trying for almost two years now and failing. I. Will. Not. Give. Up.
Then a little message for some of the people reading and AIMED AT NO ONE IN PARTICULAR. I'm an old hand at this eating disorder game. I'm not thin enough to be ano, I don't purge (often) so I'm not typical mia, but what I am is A FUNCTIONAL PERSON LIVING WITH AN EATING DISORDER. My ED isn't a cry for help, I don't want to go into recovery and for all these years now I've learned to control it and function. It will probably never go away, but I'm okay with that. I'm no one's ana buddy, I'm not into childish ABCs or skinny girls, ballerina diets, 5 day fast, 5:2's. None of that appeals to me, because as a functional adult with a good job (and a boyfriend as of recently) I know that it isn't sustainable. I know that I can't destroy my life. So my point is - a lot of girls come into this fucked up little world of ours looking for attention, wanting an eating disorder to say they have one. This blog, MY blog is not that blog. This blog is about me and my life, it just so happens that my ED is a big part of it. ANYWAY, that's all I wanted to say.
HOW AM I APPROACHING MY 6 WEEK CHALLENGE? I'm not actually doing anything out of the ordinary. Because it's only 1kg a week, I can actually have about 1000 cals a day. Like it isn't too much. I'd also rather do that because then I don't binge. Anyway, so I've been having very clean food with a treat here and there, but it's been okay.
Today's intake - cereal with almond milk (150), butternut soup (135), dried mango (110) and avocado on wholegrain toast (330) for a grand total offfff: 805. BOOM!
Peace & Rants
