I am officially ONE WEEK into my mini-cut. In case you missed it, you can read a little background on why I am doing it here.
A few updates:
Hunger levels. I’m starting to feel hungry in the mornings before I go workout. I remember this from when I was in a fat loss phase last year. It’s not that big of a deal, but it sure means I am ready to eat once my workout is finished 🙂 . I’m also noticing that I’m a bit more hungry just in general – also around 4 p.m. but that’s just part of being in a deficit. I’m eating LESS than my body needs right now.
Greek yogurt snack. I almost always pack some sort of Greek yogurt as a morning snack. When I was on the reverse diet and eating more calories, I had more carbs to spare so I was eating more pre-packed, dessert-y ones like Chobani flips. Now I’m choosing to save my carbs so plain Greek yogurt with cinnamon and a Splenda packet has been my savior! Tons more protein and saves on carbs for later.
Reverting back to old habits. Yesterday, I went back to some old habits. I started out with a little treat outside of my macros and it quickly escalated to a day of eating way outside my macros. It wasn’t a full on binge by any means, but I definitely lost some control. I woke up feeling bubbly in the tummy and a bit disappointed in myself but I’m not perfect and I know that is my weakness. It’s something I have to constantly work on!
