Can I just say that my first IF (16/8 split) meal that was planned around 1200 calories was super filling! Like food baby filling! I was honestly shocked. It’s no wonder people opt for salad as dinner or a snack. But I still can’t get over the fact that eating raw leaves feels so weird. All of the green vegetables (Spinach, Collard Greens, Bitter Leaves, etc) I learned how to make cooked. So eating a salad is really strange to me. I’ll eventually get used to it.
So to briefly go over what my eating is like:
- I currently do a 16/8 IF schedule where I “fast” for 16 hours and eat in an 8-hour window.
- I just realized, after recounting my calorie goal and noticing my slowing weight loss, I have changed my calorie goal from 1400 (give or take) to 1200 cals.
- I’m super picky about my food, but I am slowly getting better at trying new foods.
And here’s my food diary for today:
The snack was a last minute thing, so I had to search for a comparable thing since I didn’t think of looking at the calories.
For exercise, I started C25k and walking on the days between. That leaves Sunday as my rest day. I really want to make working out a habit. So here’s to building habits!
I just wanted to get my thoughts out here since I journal every few days. While these posts may not be regular, they will be detailed about my fitness journey!
