Operation: FYT

Operation: Fuck You Turkey (FYT)
Goal: Lose 1 more pound by the end of November
Starting Weight: 125.6
Goal for December 1: 124.6
Big Hurdle: Don't get caught in your ED on Thanksgiving (we're celebrating it Friday at my house).
My method around it: Fill up plate with lots of different foods, pick at it, fill up mostly on veggies and "safe" foods. Hit the gym for a two hour horror fest of cardio and then an hour worth of weights to burn off approx. 1500kcal.
Crack down rest of month (last remaining 3 days) to ensure weight comes off.

I'm worried. I hate setting goals. It almost is a sure thing that I won't hit them. But...the name sounds awesome! FYT! FUCK YOU TURKEY!


I just did 3 1/2 hours at the gym. 2 hours of cardio, 40 minutes of weights, and the rest of that was spent stretching or staring blankly at things when it literally took too much effort to move.
But I had 900 calories before I went. And I still need to eat a little something before bed to stop the migraine that can come if I don't.
I burned about 1036 calories on cardio, and maybe 150-200 on weights?
I'm hoping this translates to a good day on the scale tomorrow.
I've been binging too much.

Now i just want to sleep.

It's just one day like the rest. If you do have to eat, remember to eat slow, chew 25 times before swallowing, and take a sip of water every 2 bites (every 1 bite tends to look suspicious) and try to talk while you eat, so you eat slower and feel fuller faster. Stay away from liquor, because it KILLS your calorie intake and will undo all your hard work! Try club soda or diet sodas to fill you with the fizziness! And if you HAVE TO EAT SWEETS
PUMPKIN PIE is LESS CALORIES than any of the cakes or other pies!
SWEET POTATOES with Marshmallows is over 100 cals LESS than traditional mashed potatos!
White meat on a turkey is OVER 100 cals less than the dark meat!
And canned cranberry sauce is deadly on the calorie amounts!

REMEMBER it's JUST another day! YOU CAN DO IT!
I hope for updates come Thursday, and you'll get one after our celebration on friday.
