Good Day Sunshine

 Good-day sunlight, I'd like to say how truly bright you are
You don't know me but I know you,
You're my favorite.
- Jason Mraz

 So This is Today...

Hello ladies. :) I decided my blog needed some warming up, I was getting a bit sick of the pink. Unfortunately I haven't found much thinspo that fits the theme yet, so it may be a while before my blog is all decked-out again. ;) Also added a new playlist to go along. I think it feels much more cozy in here! It's my little diet haven, safe, warm and cozy... Mmm I am so (mentally, not physically) ready for summer!

Breakfast: 1 Cara Cara Orange (80 cal)

I woke up feeling empty, and truly I forgot how beautiful it feels... It's been a while... I've missed this so much. I feel so lost with out it, so out of control, so lacking in purpose. I'm not as empty as I would like to be, but I've got to keep myself from binging, it's so important right now. 

I'm going to go vacation with my boyfriend next week, so I won't be able to post. I'm going to try my hardest to count calories and keep them on my phone. It's so hard because we end up eating at restaurants a lot, and we're always "celebrating" something - anything/everything - with chocolate or Mexican food. He loves spoiling me, I just wish he knew how much I hate eating those foods... I mean, I love them, they're my favorite, but my thighs don't need them... 

But anyway, seeing him in a few days is my reason for restricting this week. I need to have a flat tummy when I see him, I need to feel light and delicate. I don't think 105 will be possible, but anything is better than what I am right now. 

So, I better get my butt in gear and go for a hike!

 I will update later after I eat dinner - I may just edit this post & update my calendar. :)

Love you guys! Stay strong and think thin!

Dinner Edit:

Dinner: Grilled atlantic salmon & a salad (small portions) (~400 cal)

Snack/Lunch: 1/2 cup Mandarin orange slices (90 cal)

Today's Total: 570 :(

UGH! If I hadn't had those orange slices it would be so much lower, but I caved when my sister was having a snack-fest and eating popcorn, pizza and chocolate this afternoon (before she had dinner, because her metabolism is AMAZING and she can eat WHATEVER she wants!) and I guess it could have been worse, I could have opted for some of that pizza that was smelling soooo good... My family also had chocolate cake after dinner and I said no, so I'm proud of myself for that. :) Of course, I find really really unhealthy things easy to say no to - it's those things that are semi healthy that I let myself munch away on (peanuts, cereal, granola, etc) and tell myself, "It's okay! They're mostly good for me!" when they're actually still quite high in calories (1/2 cup peanuts - 160 cal, 3/4 cup dry cereal - 180-300 cal, etc.)

But I keep hearing it's best to have a varied calorie intake, so your metabolism doesn't go into hibernation mode, and on the SGD the highest day is 700 calories... So, I'm going to consider 570 alright... Though tomorrow I hope I can go to the lowest day of SGD which is 300. I know it doesn't really matter what the SGD plan says since I'm not on it, but there must be something to it since so many girls trust & follow it!

So, I'm going to add a goal for the next day to my calendar, as well as some little red and green symbols to keep track of whether or not I met my goal. At the end of the week I'm going to total how many calories over my goals I went. I think adding all this structure to my "records" is really going to help keep me on track! So tomorrow's goal is 300 calories! And for the record my goal today was 500, so I did go over by 70 calories, even if I am considering it good by SGD's terms... Yeah, I'm crazy. Whatever! :D 

By the way, absolutely feel free to steal my calendar. Or if you want me to send you the code or make one for you I would totally love to, just leave a comment or send me a message! <3
