I mentioned a week ago how I’m starting a nutritional program where I’m counting macros and basically eat ALL of the food. I’ve made it seven whole days! It’s been great! I’m eating SO MUCH food, it’s ridiculous. My poor co-workers have to hear me complain every afternoon when it’s time to eat again. It’s a far cry from being hungry most of the day which was becoming normal.
My weight is finally dropping again after a year of it staying the same. I was pretty skeptical at first when I noticed I was eating
2200 calories/day. I haven’t given myself that many calories since I started losing weight four years ago. I even fit three pieces of pizza into my plan for Saturday so I could watch college football and eat pizza. It was so weird not to feel guilty about eating pizza. I mean, sure I had to email my WAG coach and get confirmation from her that it was okay to eat pizza, but she assured me it was fine. This Working Against Gravity plan is blowing my mind.
There is one small part of this that I’ve found to be irritating. Planning every single bite of food that goes into my mouth has been a huge pain in my ass. I recently planned out the next week of food and it took HOURS. Then I had to prep all of this food so I can just grab my food for work and that took hours too. I’m sure this will get easier as I adjust to this new way of life.
This morning I will be sending my first completed spreadsheet to my WAG coach that lists all of my macros for the week, my weight each day, my training schedule, how I felt each day and more pictures. I’m excited to see what changes (if any) she’s going to make to my plan.
Needless to say, I’m pretty excited to start week #2 today. The fact that this is a holiday weekend isn’t even phasing my diet. It’s like this has rejuvenated my fitness journey. I haven’t been this excited since I started CrossFit two years ago. It’s a good feeling. 🙂
