I've had the worst cravings today; it's been terrible! I craved fried chicken, grilled chicken, a boiled egg...ANYTHING chicken that I can actually chew! I know this is all a mental thing as I haven't been physically hungry since the surgery. The liquids and jello just didn't satisfy the beast today. 😒
I had a EUREKA (or DUH) moment and realized I don't have to eat 1200 calories EVERY day, but as an average for the week. So! This week I ate up to 1400 calories on my 2 heavy workout days (adding a protein bar and some extra veggies and allowing myself a little cheese) and 900-1100 on the other 5 days of the week. Lo and behold three pounds melted off this week. I'm so excited because I was ravenous on my workout days and just 200 extra calories have made all the difference. Yay!
