Restricted Diet: Day 1

Today was actually not as bad as I expected. I feel like I drank a gallon of water today, but it’s probably for the better anyway. I know I haven’t been drinking as much as of late anyway and my heart’s been beating all fast lately, too. Not sure if those two things are related, but I’d bet they are. 

As for what I did today, I basically just sat around watching various YouTube videos and relaxing. I finished my take-home midterm exam, too. I still can’t believe that a professor actually let us take home the exam but, in all honesty, part of me isn’t really that surprised. It was already the easiest class I’ve ever taken (yes, even easier than Driver’s ed) and i guess she was just challenging herself to make it even easier… But yeah.. that’s what I did all day.

Oh! I also had a brief conversation with my boyfriend and we talked about our plans for tomorrow for our 1 year anniversary. We’re just going to keep it simple and get some pho for dinner at this place called Tu-Do near the University. The last time we went, we both said that we would try pho for the first time together, then ended up just getting some rice stuff from the specials lol. Oh well. This time we’ll get it right and actually get pho. For our anniversary, I made a collage of pictures of us and then had it printed out at Walmart for like $3 bucks. I also got him a nice little card and I think I’m gonna give it to him during our dinner. I still have a little bit of time to decide what I’m gonna do with that 🙂 


Getting back to my experience with the eating. It was not as hard as I thought it would be. In chronological order, I ate a bite of veggie spaghetti, a bite of a strawberry, a small cup of orange juice, 1/2 of a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich, and finally, 1/2th a cup of the spaghetti. I assume that all that probably totaled up to 400-500 calories. So that’s a great start ^-^

I want to continue to do this for a month so that I can drop down to my goal weight of 160 or, better yet, my buffer weight of 155. I’m tired of not liking my stomach and I’m going to do something about it.
