I gained 2 pounds!
While this is not the progress I was looking for, I'm NOT discouraged. Although I have exercised everyday since 4/20 I have not taken the steps to start eating right.
Simple math says 1000's of calories minus a few hundred doesn't equal a negative number.
I need to find ways to change my eating habits and I'm hoping that through the SparkPeople Nutrition guide I'll be able to find tasty ways to cut back on my calories.
I've tried snacking on carrots and celery, this is one instance where I so 'No, I'm not gonna do it.' I'm going to have to look out for alternatives like the different nuts, or trail mixes. I'm an emotional eater, so it's not just that I feel hungry. Perhaps a less calorie intensive snack will help me get through stress and boredom without sabotaging my weight loss intentions.
After my workout this morning I'm headed for my hometown for the day to spend the night with my Grandparents. I also have an appointment with a Counselor I've been seeing, so I'll be able to spew forth all my dribble and perhaps rearrange my thoughts some.
I do planning on eating more healthy when I head that way though. Plain salad, grilled salmon, and broccoli. Mmmm, yummeh. Now, to make sure I order the half portion of salmon and not the whole. I CAN DO IT!
