Ok, yesterday was my first day and I managed to survive on 1,321 calories ( including an ice cream and 4 haribo's ) I know eating sweet things on your very first day of a new lifestyle is not great, but I paid for it working out on the wii for 30 minutes. I wanted to do some more exercise, but my back started hurting so I couldn't. - I've got scoliosis and my lower back hurts a lot. Anyway, I am happy that I didn't eat too many calories yesterday and that I managed to count absolutely everything I ate. It gave me some kind of weird control over what was on my plate and that everything was thought through. Today I feel great, (apart form my back pain) and I hope I'll stick to my new plan for a while. Do you have any idea what kind of exercise is best for people with back pain? I like swimming, but getting to the swimming pool is the problem as my car gave up on me :/ Have a great weekend everyone. And don't let the ice cream van tempt you !
