Lots of starts and stops lately, a few days of eating healthy then I go off track. This has got to stop. I think my problem is in my head. Iím always worried about something, usually finances, and that fills my head and pushes all the healthy thinking right out the door. I need to find a way to stop that worrying and negative thinking before it gets to the point of causing me to ignore my healthy lifestyle. On the plus side I am still exercising regularly, thatís something.
PLAN Ė Journal ! Itís so simple and I know it helps. I just donít seem to take the time to sit down and do it. When Iím feeling stressed, worried and thinking about making unhealthy choices I need to stop, think, and write. I know I canít stop the worrying, thatís a constant, but at least I can take steps to stop the unhealthy consequences.
Did very good yesterday ! Followed my eating plan perfectly. No sweets !!!! For dessert after dinner I had a yogurt, Yoplait Grasshopper, absolutely yummy, the kind of dessert I really should be having. YES !!!
Today started a little iffy. My husband wanted pancakes for breakfast, and since I donít want eating healthy to be about deprivation I agreed. I want to feel that making healthy choices is a natural thing, not forced. I enjoyed the pancakes, he does a good job on them. MMMM No regrets, moving on. Since breakfast was higher in calories than I had planned, and not as healthy as planned, I changed todayís menu to accommodate that. Instead of the leftover chili which is higher in calories, today will be Potluck, meaning Iím doing baked oatmeal for dinner and having a veggie filled lunch.
