25 March: 1st time trying kale 

Breakfast: 3 tbsp oatmeal + soy milk 

Lunch: Kale salad! 

  

First time trying kale…well found out I don’t like it. I was so excited to try it out because it’s so ‘hyped up’ but it tastes very…grassy? I don’t know how to explain it, my friend’s mum said it was ‘earthy’ and didn’t like it. The quinoa was DELISHHH and the noodles were surprisingly good. ALSO 3rd time trying out beetroot (despite not liking it the first 2 times) – I guess I really don’t like it hahaha 

Snack: 1 banana, wholewheat crackers 

Dinner: Chinese green beans, tofu, soup 

Snack: Apple

25 March: 1st time trying kale 

22 March: A ‘meh’ kind of day 

Breakfast: 3 tbsp oats & soy milk 

Lunch: Pumpkin & edamame 

 

Amazingly ran out of vegetables in the whole house (how is that even possible…) so PUMPKIN INSTEAD. 

Snack: 1 banana, 1 pear, 1 packet of wholewheat crackers 

I don’t know what to do when I’ve eaten TWO fruits…and I’m still hungry. I mean if I eat EVEN MORE fruits isn’t that just too much sugar…isn’t it better to switch it up a bit? 😐 

Dinner: 3 brown rice cakes, lettuce, mushroom, steamed fish, bean sprouts 

Snack: Grapes, chestnuts  

Shouldn’t have eaten those chestnuts…I even told myself not to eat those chestnuts…but somehow I ended up eating them anyway…I really don’t know what to do but give in when I have such a strong determination…to eat! 😐

22 March: A ‘meh’ kind of day 

22 MAR: Binge #1

So the day finally came…the day when my binging would relapse. I kept asking myself when I would lose control and day after day went by and I seemed to actually gain control of my diet. Who was I kidding? 

Breakfast: Overnight oats (1 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 cup soy milk, 1/2 cup oats, 1/3 cup water, then next morning add blueberries & walnuts) 

 

Lunch: Mushrooms & mixed grain rice  

 

Snack: 1 nectarine…and many more…including the snacks I ate throughout the day…here’s a compilation: 

 

 

Dinner: Sushi  

So..if you add EVERYTHING I ate today, I made another collage so it’s more visual; some photos I used from the internet b/c its easier to visualise rather than writing ‘x5’ or sth on the bottom 

 

Typical binge day…it’s so annoying because I made so much progress so far! I remember eating so much and then thinking “I already ruined my day so screw it, might as well make it the worst day possible”. And the thing that I forgot to do today, is that I forgot to think of how I’m trying to eat healthier and BE healthier because I love myself. Because I deserve to have a nice body. Because I am eating to NOURISH my body. 

Instead, today I has the ‘skinny’ mentality. Somehow I totally forgot about the ‘loving mentality’ and I just thought “I’ll never be skinny anyway”.

Tomorrow is a new day. I will not restrict any calories. Instead I will eat healthy, because I am in control of my body. 

It’s interesting. I watched a documentary (Hungry for Change) about how we’re actually addicted to food, but the media is just covering it up. We know cocaine and other drugs are bad, but food is surprisingly, a drug. We are addicted to it, and for binge eaters such as myself, we don’t know when to stop.  

22 MAR: Binge #1

21 March: 1st healthy organic restaurant!

Lunch: Life salad bowl

IMG_9114-0

I’ve been wanting to try ‘Life Cafe’ for AGESSSSS and I’m so glad I finally got to try it out! Everything there is super healthy & organic. My life salad bowl had: grated carrot & beetroot, sprouted mung beans, organic chickpea hummus, mixed nuts and seeds, nutritional yeast, fresh herb dressing, and life organic flaxseed crackers (as stated on the menu). EVERYTHING in that bowl tasted amazing, and god knows how they made that herb sauce because it tastes like heavennnnn.

Snack: wholewheat crackers, grapes

Dinner: Fish, veggies, 1 bowl of soup

  

 I actually hate this fish so much because my parents like everything with a super strong flavour and this fish is SOOO FREAKING SALTY it tastes like I’m eating straight up salt.

My mum got pissed at me because I was eating too little for dinner…what??? I ate stuff before that, and she was like “Then don’t eat any snacks” and I’m like “I’ll get so hungry by dinner I’ll devour everything”. Gosh, it’s my life, my choices, my diet.

21 March: 1st healthy organic restaurant!

Side note

JUST IN CASE you don’t know, the photos of dinner which I post is not all for me. We have huge dishes of food, and we spoon however much we want into our bowls. Then go in for seconds etc. In case anyone thought I ate the whole plate of whatever photo I posted…

Side note

20 March: Documentary overload

Today was not so bad as well! I’m starting to get kinda worried about the whole fruit sugar thing and that being bad for you, because the previous article I read stated it doesn’t raise your blood glucose levels…but does that mean it prevents you from gaining weight?! I’m so confused, some websites say it’s best to limit the number of fruits you eat in a day but then freelee the banana girl eats…just bananas – literally, and she’s fit af! GAH IDK will do more research on this.

Btw totally gone food documentary crazy…I watched 4 documentaries in the past 2 days about food, meat etc. These are: food inc, forks over knives, hungry for change and vegucated. These 2 days were clearly very productive….

Breakfast: 3-4 tbsp oatmeal, soy milk

Snack: Grapes

Lunch: Beans – idk what they’re called, see the photo below:

Snack: 1 banana, 1 apricot

Dinner: Salmon, eggs (god I felt so bad but there was nothing else I could eat), shrimp

IMG_9091

I’m trying to limit my dairy intake because mannnn watching all those food documentaries and seeing the way that cows are seriously alive just for human production, the way they are forced to give birth, then the baby is immediately dragged away – if it’s male it will be used for beef, if it’s female it would be used to produce milk for our consumption in the future. And you know how mothers are super protective of their children when they’re born (as in animals, but humans are too), I mean to have them stripped away from them immediately? That’s just cruel. And right after that, humans inject sperm into their…area? Idk what u call it, and then metal tubes are placed on their utters so that milk can come out. What is wrong with us??? So yeah, TRYING to limit my dairy, but if the situation arises, like today, then I’ll still eat it, but just not a lot.

Snack: Blueberries

20 March: Documentary overload

19th March: pretty good!

Breakfast: Banana muffins

IMG_9044

These are from Cassey’s (Blogilates) recipe! They’re so simple to make – just 1 egg, a bit of oats (around 3-4 tbsp) and 1/2 a banana. And I eat the other half. It tastes amazing, it’s surprisingly sweet because my banana was quite ripe

Lunch: Stir-fried peas

Exercise: 30 min treadmill & tried that machine which I don’t know the name of…it worked out the chest, shoulders & back, the one where you push…yeah..so I tried one of the weights which was STILL SO HARD. Guess that’s a sign I need to work out my muscles more..

ALSO from the blogilates exercise yesterday, I think I have DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness or something like that) because my muscles are only starting to hurt this evening. BUT I’m so glad they do, because that means I worked them hard! (or that I just hadn’t worked out in a long time..let’s avoid that possibility)

For the 30 min treadmill, I ran at 8 for 10 minutes, then did HIIT running for 20 minutes – so I ran at 11.2 for 1 minute, then stepped off and vice versa. SO SWEATY AFTERWARD

Snack: 1 banana, 1 nectarine

Cries my nectarine molded slightly on the top, so I cut that part out.

Dinner: Yellow pepper, sole fish, 2 bowls of soup

The sole fish was waaayyyy too salty..maybe because I wasn’t eating any rice unlike my parents, but wow that was SALTY.

Snack: 1/2 a papaya

I also found out yesterday, that the sugars from fruit is PERFECTLY FINE FOR YOU. And the belief that bananas will give you a ‘potassium overdose’ is FALSE. Having this mindset made me eat SOO much more healthier. I mean look at my snack! All just fruit! 😀

19th March: pretty good!
