So I haven't completely back slid since Friday! Praise God! But I just feel like I'm still slipping slowly. I keep taking bites of things I shouldn't eat, like when I'm preparing food for my daughter or I'll ask my husband for a bite of what he's eating. And him and I have talked about him eating whatever he wants around me, he's going to stick a lot better to my meal plan so I'm not so tempted to snack on whatever he's eating. Which I know will help, but I still have to gain control over what I'm doing regardless of what's going on around me, this is a lifestyle change! Sometimes it sucks when we get invited to spur of the moment BBQ's, but I really appreciate when my family compliments me on how well I'm doing. So I'm just going to stay strong, keep planning what I'm supposed to eat and just plan ahead for things I can plan ahead for! It's okay to eat something different from everyone I'm loosing weight and I'm doing what's best for me!!!
I'm wondering if I'll always plan all my meals... probably because I enjoy only going grocery shopping once a week and it helps to plan it out... this is a lifestyle change, which means this is the way I'll always eat... if something like a BBQ happens again unplanned, take what I planned to eat and eat that! Plan for a turkey dog, or salmon burger next week!!! It's okay to miss out on eating that item today I can have it next week!!!
Oh and on a good note, I had a little bit of a revelation today! I realized I don't have to spend 60 straight minutes working out each day! I only need to burn a certain amount of calories a day and that can be attained by 15 minute workout "sessions" four times a day!!! I only need to burn the calories, not all at once.
So I'm only going to eat what I've planned (plan what I want next week), and I can exercise any time of the day with what I have with me just do it for 15 minutes.
BTW happy late 4th of July!!!
