Went up instead of downdowndown.
But I lost about a quarter inch on my waist.
So who knows.
Yesterday ran two rehearsals from 9-11:30 am, then had brunch. Quinoa burger on bread (eww, should have skipped the bread) with hummus, lettuce, and tomato, steamed broccoli, and a small bowl of vegetable chickpea soup. Came back, had a short rehearsal/run-through of an upcoming show, then had a hummus sandwich on a bagel and an orange. Then a four-hour solo rehearsal, in the middle of which I had an orange, and I was done by 7:30 pm. Had spinach with carrots, lots of tofu, and tomato sauce for dinner, and a handful of pistachios as a snack afterwards.
Breakfast today was oatmeal (150) with peanut butter (200) a banana (90) and raisins (100) for 540.
The rest of the day is fruit (an apple and an orange, 135) and lentils (230) with couscous (90) for a total of 995. Might have more fruit than that, but not over 1200.
Today is an hour of ballet, an hour of modern, a pretty intense 2-hour rehearsal, then on my feet teaching for two hours, then running an hour-long rehearsal for a dance number in a theatre production. I'll probably burn about 1100 through activity.
(I know these intake numbers are high compared to what you girls are used to seeing, and that with a weight like what I'm at I have no business eating that much, but dance is my current job and hopefully my future career. I need to fuel enough to train properly.)
I haven't purged in over a week. I don't remember the last time, I just know that I haven't let myself because of the solo rehearsals. This piece is intense, and constant, and it's just me, and I absolutely can't let myself get dehydrated or wobbly or underfueled during it. I felt like I was going to pass out halfway through on Saturday, and when it's just you... that reads. I passed it off as tiredness from having turned in a thesis draft the day before (true) and the solo being hours 5-8 of rehearsal in a row that day (also true), but this choreographer is brilliant and connected and I need to be more impressive. I need to be better. Unfortunately, for now, that means food.
Hope you lovelies are doing well.
All my love,
