Exercise and Food Diary

Monday, February 9, 2009

I crave chocolate like a confused vampire who keeps on eating chocolate instead of drinking blood.

Exercise: 30 mins. elliptical, 15 mins. treadmill, some lame-ass sit ups.

Breakfast: Oatmeal, raisins, stolen silk.

Lunch: leftover Korean noodles (jjol myun?) from my lunch with Jenn, 2 slices of spam. God, it was still SO SPICY even two days after I had first eaten it!

Snack: Hot chocolate

Dinner: Special K with Strawberries, Soymilk.

Today Biran sent me some notes for tips on more nutritious eating. There were a lot of good tips he included. Later on this month we are going to craft a work out plan to make my body look more like Beyonce's. I am not joking. I specifically asked him, as my wedding gift, to help me look like Beyonce. Here are some of his food tips:

1. Avoid the Bad

Whenever I am eating a meal, and someone asks if I want dessert, or a second helping of something delicious as fuck, I ask myself “Will I be glad I at this 20 minutes from now? 1 week from now? 6 months from now? Is it worth it?” Sounds stupid, but it helps. If I can just withdraw myself from my instinctual urge for momentary gratification for those 10 minutes, my brain can focus on another activity and forget about whatever was delicious as fuck.

So that’s one thing that helps me avoid things I know not to eat.

2. Don't make yourself sad

Don’t shut out everything you like to eat. It might make you sad. Just eat the unhealthy things in small, controlled portions. Make a mental note of it, and do a little extra the next time in the gym to knock off those calories. When I was super healthy in college, I went to the Cheesecake Factory and ate a cheesecake. Later that night, I ran 5 miles to burn it off. Freakish? Yes. Excessive? Maybe. Homophobic? No. It works.
