Day one - 400 Calories

So day one of 'The Skinny Girl Diet' and I am feeling not as optimistic as I had hoped. I feel so fat, I feel as though I ate way too much even though i stuck to the 400 calories. I know for starters that I should eat 'good' calories, things that are at least full of nutrients not just numbers. But oh well, i have learnt my lesson on that account. Today I also managed to have my first alcohol-free day in a while, and believe me the first of many, go me!
2 Tbs Apple cider vinegar (14cal) Green Tea (0cals) Cupcake (105cals)
175ml Apple juice (100)
Green ea (0cal) 1 Tbs diced capsicum (2cal) 1 Tbs diced onion (2cal) 1/2 strip of diced soy bacon (15cal) I medium steamed potato (150cal) Scoop out the contents of the potato and bake the skin in the oven. Mash the potato with no added butter or milk. Fry onion, capsicum and bacon and add to potato, mix well. Put inside potato skin, with a pinch of cheese if desired and grill until the tops are crispy. Yum! 
Total calorie count: 398

The cupcake I regretted but without it I wouldn't have ended up with the calorie count and the apple juice I also regretted but someone else brought it for me so I though I should at least drink some of it. I am loving the fact that I almost always have Fiona Apple (pictured)'s lyrics "Hunger hurts but starving works" from her song 'Paper Bag'. Its an inspiring song and I think some of her other songs may be good too, I will be checking it out later. Her sound is very unique and it took me a couple of times to get used to it, but its a great song to have stuck in your head, as well as 'Hunger Strike' by 'Temple of the Dog'. However once you realise how dedicated you are to Ana, every song becomes relevant to your situation or lifestyle, I have found anyways. Well its the first night in my new house and I sat down with the sister and watched a movie and added a new decor to the blog, which i must say is not the style i would usually go for but I'm liking it. Now I'm sitting here on the couch thinking i should go for a run, but don't know where she keeps her keys, shit! I guess I shall take my vitamins and try to catch some sleep instead, maybe. Goodnight xo
