In Korea, number that ends in 9 is an unlucky number. On day 9 of my diet, I fell off track again with lots of pizza and pasta. It was the first time in 9 days that I ate bread! And I can already see the bloat.
This is bad…
I love the workout part but hate the trying to pretend cookies don’t exist part.
I know that losing stored fat is not as simple as caloric deficit. It’s about burning fat, not losing weight and water which is gonna come back in a snap.
How to lose fat 101
- HIT on empty stomach
- Compound weights on empty stomach
- Sprinting on empty stomach
- Eating strict healthy diet and KEEPING it that way
- Repeat 1–4 in various forms throughout eternity
Of course, you can choose to not eat and not workout, but I’m a person who has a LOT of energy that needs to be used or else my brain is gonna exploration from anxiety.
Also, hormonal imbalances that come with long-term starvation is a definite no-no & something that cannot be maintained.
I’ve had a bad habit of overeating and fast-eating without breathing. If there’s food on the table, I feel an urge to finish it all. I don’t know where it came from, it was a way of managing stress that developed into a resilient habit that keeps coming back.
The resources I need to get to my goals are out there, but I keep on circling back.
Now I’m gonna keep a diary of what I eat and how I feel about what I eat to check my psychological relationship with food and what possibly caused it.
Of course I need to implement a strict workout routine and most importantly, have set goals.
Why do I do this? Can I do this?
I keep on telling myself.
