Restricting

                                                                                               Mood:weary
This morning I got on the scale and 123. I'm very surprised actually.
I'm going to try to restrict today, its going to be hard because I really don't want to eat at all. Supps and OEP today after dropping my daughter off at school. Felt dizzy again in the morning, at times I'd have to sit just to make it go away. Not really hungry but I don't want to go into starvation mode. This is after all day eight with Ana. I take a nap because the headache will not let up.
Decide to eat after all, something small and safe. Apples contain virtually no fat.
They are a negative calorie food.
 "Negative calorie foods" are foods, which use more calories to digest than the calories food actually contains! Calories from these foods are much harder for the body to use. In other words, the body has to work hard in order to extract calories from these foods. Even though a food may contain equal amount of calories, much less of these calories can possibly turn into fat in negative calorie foods as fewer calories are actually available to the body. This gives these foods a tremendous natural fat-burning advantage.
So apples for today to keep Mia away!

Small Red apple sprinkled with splenda and cinnamon (60 cals).

In order to lose weight you have to burn more calories than you consume.
How it works?
All foods have a nutrient (carbohydrate, fat, protein), caloric (calories) and vitamin & mineral content. Vitamins stimulate living tissues to produce enzymes that breakdown the caloric nutrients of that food.
The foods with negative calorie contain sufficient vitamins & minerals that produce enzymes in quantities sufficient to break down not only its own calories, but additional calories from body in digestion as well. This is called "negative calorie effect."
So for today that's all I'm having.
Feel kinda triggered today and anxious. The apple inside me is bugging me, feel so nauseous like I want to purge it. Its all inside my head of course, the apple is a safe food. My husband wants to go out to eat on Sunday. I immediately shut him down.
"You can't even eat just a little bit?" he actually looks surprised.
Normally I would eat, but then purge, I'm trying to put a stop to that for as long as I can hold on. So no I won't be eating out anywhere on Sunday.
I suggest something to him, I told him I would cook at home instead, a real nice meal something he would like. In return all I ask is that he buys me two large bottles of a my favorite protein mix. His hands are tied and he agrees. That is after all the only thing I can keep down. So the Vitamin Shoppe on Sunday it is.
The protein mixes are only 55 cals and they taste really nice. I'm going to try restricting so I need to find the low cal things that I can tolerate this week if I'm to keep this up.
My chest feels tight and the headache is not going away today. I have a parent teacher conference at my daughter's school tomorrow. She got yellow today-limbo!
She's a chatterbox in class. She's only five and an only child, my daughter is very sweet and social. I'd rather her be like that any day than be the opposite, quiet and unsure. I'll hear the teacher out and see what she thinks is best to do, mind you the teacher has no children of her own, but whatever. Now I have to implement a system to reward my kid if she improves in school. Ugh dinner..
I forgot to take the chicken out of the freezer for dinner, its a block of ice! Poured cold water on it and tried to defrost it as best I could, threw it in the oven like that.
Wonder how long frozen chicken takes to bake?
At least the red beans and rice will be edible for the family. I have to workout still, squeeze it in somewhere in this day that seems to be going pretty quickly.
I'm not too hopeful on a loss today, I think 123 will stick around for a few days, then again I have always been wrong about many a thing.
