Ok, so I feel like my efforts to stop bingeing have led to too much restriction..
This needs to stop. :/
I really don't need to lose any weight. I realize that now, and I'm in a sane mind to believe it.
I haven't gone over 1700 calories a day since Monday (the reason being that this day was Valentine's).
Considering that I ran 10 miles plus circuits Tuesday and Thursday, an 8x800 meter workout totaling 11 miles on Wednesday, 8 miles yesterday, and a 6 mile tempo today (+5 of warmup/cooldown mileage), I'd say that I should probably be eating more in order to maintain my weight..
It's just that I don't want to go overboard with my eating, and so I feel like I have to restrict in order to maintain control.
Well after reading some blogs and looking at some yummy pictures of oatmeal, I decided to try making my own tonight! I have never made oatmeal in my life. Although I love it, I've always just used the Quaker instant packets kind.
Umm, yum?! It was delicious. I dunno if I'll ever go back to instant! ha
I used a teaspoon of brown sugar, some cinnamon, a little vanilla extract, a packet of truvia, almond milk, and the oats, of course, 3/4 a cup. Then I topped it off with a dollop of greek yogurt and a dollop of light 'n fit Vanilla yogurt and a spoonful of almond butter. I was planning on taking a picture, but I had to try it before snapping a shot, and once I did I couldn't put it down! ha :)
I will next time :) And I wish I had had a banana.. I threw out an old one today, actually :/ darn..
Anyway, I am proud of myself for being experimental and not worrying about the fact that I used almond milk instead of water and that I added brown sugar and whatever.
However, I am still low on calories for the day :/
I'll try to make up for it later. As of now, I'm stuffed.
I'm about to go to a team birthday party thing at my friend Renee's. I told her I'd bring over stuff to make cookies cuz I've been in a baking mood tonight!
Ok, so this post was random and pointless I guess, but I just felt the need to express my concern over my somewhat restrictive eating habits- throughout the morning, especially.
I hope everyone's having a great weekend.
