If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

This blog is not meant to inspire anyone. I take no responsibility for what you take away from here. You are here as a guest into my inner thoughts.

Hungry, but I didn't cave...

Last night I was STARVING. Seriously, belly growling loudly hungry. I that piece of squirrely toast, but I cut it in half and made it into a sandwich with imitation crab in it for some protien. But come bedtime, I had such a hard time getting to sleep because my stomach was so loud.

But I refused to give in to it. I had planned my day, and I knew it was nutritionally sound for fuelling my body. I didn't need more.

I have a few more calories planned today, since I'm going for a Sun Run training run. I impressed myself last time by running for 18 minutes straight. I'm going to push for 20 today before a walking break. It's exciting to me to get back outside to do it! Yay for no more snow!!

Here's my fuel for today:

Br: 1/3 cup of porridge w/ 1 kiwi, 1/3 cup of pineapple, 2/3 cup almond breeze, splashes of vanilla, coconut and banana extracts, and a tablespoon each of roasted squash seeds (from last nights sketti squash) and toasted almonds. Plus milk and vitamin. (504 calories)

Ln: 1 serving of the sketti squash/buffalo leftover from last night, plus a half of a crab sandwich on squirrely bread (322 calories)

Sn: .5 cup plain fat free yogurt with a pear (165 calories)

Dn: 4 oz pork tenderloin with 2 tbls bbq sauce on a burgerfirst bun with a side of 1 cup steamed fresh green beans (483 calories)

That's a days total of 1473 calories.

Magda asked me what my resting caloric burn was in a day, on my previous post. It's 1664.

Because I am doing a walking/running thing today, it's telling me this:

for weight maintenance:

Calories Allowed 1938
Calories Consumed 1473
Net Calories 465

A high net calories number indicates that I am burning more calories than I eat, which could result in weight loss.

for weight goal:

Calories Allowed 1662
Calories Consumed 1473
Net Calories 189

I can eat more today and still stay on track toward my weight goal.

Coolio :P

Thanks for answering (I thought the number for women was around 1500) hu I guess all those jokes I make about that run meaning I've earned my cake have some truth to them :P
