My fast has lasted exactly 24 hours and I am currently in the middle of a major cooking marathon, making a cream of asparagus and mushroom, a cream of roasted beet and potato, crumbled tofu, and balsamic tomato-basil pasta. A lot of my veggies were going to go bad and I'm leaving on Thursday (and God knows that my roommate will just ignore rotting things in the fridge while I'm gone), so I thought it best to just cook everything now. I have also been thinking about this game-plan of mine for the next 30 or so days. First off, I have decided that I will break fast when I'm done cooking, as I don't want to be starving tomorrow when I get to my Nonna's because that will surely mean a gorge-fest, meaning that I will be starting the SGD as of today. This leads me to my second thought: I will be doing the SGD the "proper" way, i.e. considering fruits and veggies as freebies. I think that this will make the transition easier and will help prevent me from binging. As it lasts 30 days, I can start off with that, then do a "pure" SGD for month two, and then ease into the ABC. This means that I have a plan for the next 3 months, which is perfect since I finish school on June 20th and will be leaving for Singapore right after. I would love to be skinny and bikini-ready for Singapore, and I think that this might be a good way to get there. What do you all think? Finally, I have also decided that, though I will not include regular walking to and from school into my calculations, I will include any extra activities that I do, for example when I run or the workout plan that I'm starting. I haven't decided yet whether I will subtract these from my total, but I think that maybe I should as it will keep me motivated to go. I mean, if I don't track how these sorts of things help my intake, I feel like I'll be more prone to make excuses not to go, right? Anyways, I like it when I'm in plan-mode, makes me feel a bit more alive. It is also rather extraordinary for me to be planning my next 3 months, because lately I have been unable to make plans for more than a couple of days in advance. Part of me just always thinks that I may be dead by then. Macabre, huh?
In other news, I finally watched that show that all our British friends have been raving about, Supersized vs Superskinny. I'm not much for reality TV, but I think that this may serve as good thinspiration when I feel that I need it.
Hope everyone's having an excellent Saturday! I'm thinking that I may try writing some French poetry and posting it here. I don't know if any of you read French, but I think that it may do me some good. Hope that it won't be annoying for you... :S
