Saturday - Granddaughter Day 2

Sunday, March 25, 2012

Had a great day with the granddaughter who had spent the night. Of course, the food plan was pretty much forgotten. As it turned out, I also ate small enough amounts that I stayed within the calorie counts. She wanted French toast for breakfast and that was the biggest no-no that I ate all day. Well, I mean, one piece would have been fine - it was the others that were the no-no. I did use light syrup, so at least I didn't add a lot of sugar.

The rest of the day was so busy that I didn't have time to think too much about snacking. For lunch, we had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the park. She had some ice cream for a snack later; I had a weight watchers ice cream bar.

After she went home, it was late enough that instead of a full meal, I just had some popcorn.

All in all, what could have been a disastrous day turned out to be fairly decent. Those habits are beginning to stick.

Friday - Granddaughter spending the night!

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Well, the food plan pretty much went out the window once my 3 year old granddaughter got here. Up to that point (breakfast and mid-morning) had been on target. However, her choice for lunch was mac and cheese and I ate it with her. So much for the food plan!

Truth be told, I didn't actually stray all that far and there were no chocolate attacks today, so if I had taken the time to track what I ate, it probably wasn't all that bad.

But, I sure have had fun with you know who!!


Thursday - Kind of a repeat

Friday, March 23, 2012

Today was a busy day - had a meeting, plus plenty of errands and things around the house. Food plan was pretty much the same. I did have a little chocolate in the middle of the day, so it wasn't a totally successful day. Even so, it was pretty close.

Other things are overwhelming me at the moment. Even though I know it is time to step things up, I haven't yet quite gotten myself to respond. I keep reminding myself that I still had the 4 pounds weight loss last week (Monday is weigh in day), so even with some failure, I have greatly improved from my previous behaviors. With my slips this week, I will happy to maintain that loss.

I can see that this will have to be baby steps for a while.


Wednesday - a tough day

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Had some personal problems today that required a lot of my emotional attention. So, the food plan was kind of pushed into the background. As it turned out, most of the day was fine. If it hadn't been for the handful of chocolate that I ate, I would have actually been on plan.

Obviously, the chocolate destroyed the day's success, but it did let me know that the eating habits are becoming just that - habits. It also reminded me that it is important to strengthen those habits to the point that even the sneaky snacks are covered.

    Sounds like YOU did the best that you could yesterday......let it go and today will be better. I put dark chocolate into my plan daily (1 oz.).....have stopped any cravings for chocolate and have gotten used to just that small piece.....savoring every second.
You did a good job and keep it up. emoticon

Tuesday - a little late, but not forgotten

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

The technology problems this morning kept me from posting, and I have been busy all day since then.

Tuesday was a so-so day. I didn't get too far off plan, but I am still not really making the kind of effort that I need to make. I know the plan needs to get tighter, but I don't seem to be motivated enough to make the effort. I will keep plugging along for now, keeping in mind what I really want to accomplish.

I am not discouraged, just not as motivated as I need to be. It will come!
