However, two bad(ish) things have come out of this:
1) On my days of rest (DOR), I only get to eat 1310 calories, which just isn't a lot of food.
2) My workouts have become all about the calorie burn.
I want working out to be FUN again! I don't want to worry about the calories burned during my workouts, and I absolutely was loving being an intuitive exerciser, even if I wasn't ready to be an intuitive eater yet.

So how can I get back to a more intuitive and enjoyable approach to exercise?
That's my goal for this week. I'm going to re-learn to LOVE EXERCISE, and to stop worrying so much about the calories burned.
Today's plan- run/walk on the treadmill! This is a workout that I always love, so I'm not worried about it. I'm going to go for 40 minutes and burn approximately 359 calories. Since joining MFP, I've become almost obsessed with doing 60 minutes of cardio a day, to earn anywhere from 500-700 exercise calories that I then EAT! So my 40 minutes goal for today is actually a step towards learning to love exercise again.
Tomorrow I will do Tasty Tuesday, and hopefully Wednesday I'll do a much healthier and more whole foods edition of "my 1300 calorie day" for you guys.
Do you enjoy exercise? What is your favorite type to do?
