Please welcome Andrea...Hi Katie - Count me in too!
I need to get my act together and this is a great idea - especially leading into summer.
and Lisa Jane...I'm in too. I am aiming to write 100 blog posts in 100 days and to drink litres of water a day. [psst...your blog link isn't working at the moment LJ]
Good luck ladies.
Day 99 was tough. 12 hours at work which I am disliking more and more by the minute.
I always seem so cranky, edgy and kind of raw when I am in a calorie deficit. It makes me wonder if I am withdrawing from sugar/carbs/sodium/whatever, or if a plummeting mood is a real biological result of not getting enough food. For whatever reason, eating more food makes the irritation subside, and makes me feel more emotionally even.
Is this a chemical thing in my brain? or a learned response that can be unlearned? Is this the true definition of comfort eating? Am I a classic carbohydrate addict?
Maybe my life is annoying and frustrating and I can only block out those uncomfortable feelings when I eat? Which is my true state and which is the one that is altered by the amount of food I eat?
The problem is that I haven't found the middle path. It is starve or binge, under or over eat. I don't even know what it is like to go for a week without being in a deficit or a surplus so I can't tell you how that makes me feel.
It is all very confusing. I don't have any answers today, just questions. Just thinking out loud.
