As most of you know, I really struggle with my weight. This is not to say that I am fat. I am not fat. I am of average height and build and generally look acceptable in my clothes.
This being said, I also work out about 30 times more per day than the average person and I eat relatively well...so why am I still stuck in an average body? There are no answers. Some people were just born to be chunks and I am apparently one of them. I have to work really really really hard to maintain my average body and it suuuuucks.
But I found an interesting tidbit today. Apparently, in 2005, I wrote this blog entry about my dietary habits.
On that day, by 11:09am, I had eaten:
- 1 dozen donut holes
- 2 whole donuts (1 glazed, 1 frosted with sprinkles)
- 1 pretzel sticks
- 2 peppermints
- 1 roll of Lifesavers
- 2 Poptarts (1 package is 2 Poptarts)
And I was the skinniest I have ever been.
By comparison, on an average day NOW, by 11:09am, I will typically eat:
- 1 granola bar as my post workout snack
- 1 small bag of pretzels
- 1 package of light string cheese
- 1 medium sized apple
And I am working my a$$ off, but still can't fit into the skinny jeans I bought in 2005. WTF.
I'm going back to my bag-a-day donut habit. This sucks.
