No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

Ok wel im still sick. I don't really have any symptoms, light headache and a tiny bit a nausea but IM RUNNING A STUPID FEVER! It's weird because even when I'm super sick the highest my temp will get to is like 98.9 -99.6 my normal body temperature is like 97.0 my sister and dad are both the same way but for whatever reason for the 3rd day in a row im running like 100.3. What the heck? so the only thing its really stopping me from doing is exersizing. yesterday was a bad day and saturday wasn't good for me either. Oh well gotta get back on track. I was doing so well with porton sizes and sticking to them and the last couple days there have been some boyfriend drama and ive been totally eating just to eat. today I ate better but my portion sies were totally off. all Ive eaten today was smoothie, some left over low cal vegan pizza and some toast with honey. Buuuuuttttttt...... I had way more honey on my toast than I needed, I had one smoothie at breakfast and 1.5 of the same smoothie later in the day as a snack (why did I so desperately need the extra half? it was literally like 10 extra sips... dumb) and I had 1.5 servings of the pizza instead of just 1 like a normal person. so after a really light dinner tonight if I don't end up going on the bike, I will have 1, thats right 1 calorie left for the day. I don't want to be sick anymore and I want to go back to school so I won't be stuck insdie all day having onthing to do but eat. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Ive lost a total of 14 pounds so far but Im kinda getting stuck. I have 8 days left and I'd really like to get down another 3 pounds so I can finally get to 160 or 159.9 I just need to get back into a normal routine since I feel like this whole mnth of january has been so weird with all the bad weather and for the total of 5 snowdays just in january and the possibility of one tomorrow since the windchill is going to be so low again. This weekend Im going on another trip except this one is with my swim team so I'll be packing food for the road once again! lol 

On February 1st my mom is all excited about me eating meat again and as a reward for doing so well this month, we already planned to have steak that night... but I don't want to be rewarded with food, I'd rather be rewarded, not that I want a reward, but with like new workout gear or something. or a whole foods or trader joes giftcard so I can continue with what ive been doing instead of having a meat and dairy again day. I don't think I want to do this vegan thing or even a vegitarian thing full time but like 60% of the time maybe I'll avoid milk and eggs and meat unless its whole grain breads ( which ive found almost laways have milk in them, the white stuff doesn't a lot of the time) or really REALLY lean meat. Or like doing one at a time so If I have yogurt or something in the morning ill have some meat the next day or something. Because what is the use of a cheat day If I don't need one and would rather keep the momentum going? It seems a little weird to me... but steak and grilled veggies sounds really really good

I don't know, what do you guys think about food rewards?

I think if you wNt to be rewarded with something other than food then you should listen to what you're telling yourself. My husband and I make it a point to eat vegetarian a few times a week. Since I normally eat paleo I get lots of meat in and it's nice to have meals that aren't. We eat oatmeal a few times a week for dinner and it's like a treat because it's semi sweet. We boil the oats down in almond milk and have a handful of crunchy granola on top.

Also, your illness sounds close to mine. I think I had a bad head cold. Head ache, which for me is usually paired with nausea. Also ran fevers for four days. I hope you get better soon! It definitely messed with my eating too, and even though I'm feeling better today I'm still hungry from it.

I'm sorry to hear you're sick but why are you beating up on yourself?  And what's a "normal" person's portion?  You have been following a restrictive diet and I think you're doing it lose weight and not for moral reasons so it's not surprising that you are eating more than you'd like and that you are looking forward to eating food that hasn't been allowed this month.

You have been very committed to eating vegan and hopefully you'll stick it out for the month. Once that month is over maybe you can look at how you WANT to eat that allows you to eat a range of foods, is healthy, and will promote weight loss.

Personally I don't reward myself with food.    I don't think I really think in terms of rewarding myself anymore.   I sure do like to buy new clothes however!
