So I decided to have a cheat day. Mainly because I’ve been mysteriously losing weight, which is almost scaring me now. Like, I was 52 kg, which I thought was just perfect, then I went down to 51 kg, which was ok, but recently for the past 4 days I’ve been around 50 kg (that’s 110 pounds), which “apparently” is underweight. 51 is the minimum.
So my breakfast was normal, Fiber One cereal with some porridge and a slice of papaya.
Then I had lunch, tiny bit of meatloaf, lots of steamed veggies and a roast potato.
Then came the cheat meal:
-a gigantic serving of strawberries with 2 scoops of vanilla icecream and lots of chocolate sauce
-2 caramel filled chocolate squares + 1 “fluffy” chocolate square
-2 mini pastry thingies
-1 small slice of coconut/chocolate cake
-LOTS of figs (like, 10-15 fresh off the tree)
All in all, I think that’s enough for today. I don’t even feel that guilty. I know that I’ve gone over 2000 calories, but I think my body needs it today. Tomorrow I’m eating normally. Today I’m doing a lot of gardening, so I will probably burn off 400.
It wasn’t a binge though, which is weird. I totally controlled myself. I had foods I usually don’t really have, which I’ve been saving for a long time. And I think I gave my body a little “boost”. I don’t want to waste away, I want to gain some muscle!
I probably exaggerated though, now I’m quite blaoted and uncomfortable, plus I’m still on my period, so I’ll wait a little while before gardening.
I feel a bit confused, I hope I’m doing the right thing, all I know is that I won’t be having a cheat day like this again for a LONG while.
What do you think about this? Did I go a little overboard?
