A bad day
Thursday, February 26, 2009
Today was a bad day, regarding the diet.
I overate. I had a not particularly healthy lunch, but the problem was the two servings. Part of the reason is that I think that for this to succeed I have to eat what I normally eat, a healthier version and smaller portions. But today it did not work. Some dishes are really hard to make them healthy. The other part of the business is that I am really nervous. End of the month coming and no sales for DH. March is going to be long and difficult, but probably many sales will be closed on that month. I was hoping to travel and see my family, but probably postponed this. I also took the time to see my nutrition report, and 12 out of 25 days I was above my calories range (1200-1550). That was no good news either. I've realized that I think about eating 1500 calories each day, and usually go above, so I have to start thinking 1400 or 1300 (I think 1200 is way to low).
But on the brighter side:
1. I chose to use my anxiety-energy to clean the house and walk 20 blocks.
2. I did my daily exercise routine, at 10 pm, even when I did not initially wanted. I usually do it in the morning time.
3. I became aware of my calories intake and decided for a really light dinner.
Travelling a little later will give me some more time to lose weight.
I have to decide whether to go slowly as this month or to make an extra effort for March.
