So I forgot to weigh myself yesterday because I woke up hungry again, but this morning I remembered and hopped on the scale.
BAM, bitches! Five pounds lost.
I have been tossing around in my head how I want to do weigh-ins. Most people do once a week, but for some reason I am thinking that might not be best for me. Generally when I am weighing in once a week I either get discouraged or I get cocky. I had thought about weighing in once a month, but that seems perhaps too long of a stretch.
For these beginning weeks, especially when I am so concerned about my caloric intake, I think I will keep weighing in once a week. And if I don’t suffer any adverse effects from that, I might keep going. But if I find myself getting frustrated I may peel back some. I think I will have to play it by ear.
As far as my caloric intake is concerned, I am not going to start worrying too much about it until school starts back. These days most of what I do is sit at the computer and/or play video games, broken up only by my DDR or Taekwondo, depending on the day. When classes start up, if I start feeling faint during the day or some other adverse effects, I will start to worry some more and monitor my calories more closely.
I also need to figure out a rewards system. But I’m still pondering on that.
Actually, I would love some suggestions. What are some rewards/celebrations that I could do that DON’T involve food? Thoughts?
