Once more I'd like to complain about how easy it is for me to stick with the exercising routine, but how hard it is for me to follow my nutrition plan and stick within my calorie range. This week I did very poorly with my calories and went over my range every day but one. Granted, I didn't go over by a whole lot each day and I think I'm still under the calories needed to maintain my weight each day (about 2,400) but this still isn't good at all.
I want to lose my weight by June 1st and at the rate I'm going, it's going to take a lot longer. I lose too little from week to week and often just stay the same because I can't seem to stay within my calorie range each day. It's very frustrating. If I just ate at my place each day it wouldn't be that hard, but because I'm often eating at my bf's parent's house, or my parents, or out for celebrations (lately there have been A LOT of bdays) and I feel like I need to eat a certain amount to please people otherwise they ask why I am not eating. I also have a habit of mindless eating....or rather eating without thinking about the consequences. Like for lunch today I had a slice of pizza and garlic bread. Big mistake! There goes 800cal in one go, and now I only have a max of 500cal left for the rest of the day. Considering that I'm going out tonight, It's going to be incredibly tough to stay within, yet again.
It's so frustrating that I work so hard at the gym and then all that hard work goes to waste when I overeat! Why do I do this to myself?
So I need help finding solutions to my problems. How can I give myself a better reminder of my goals?
