Eating too much healthy food is still not good for ME!

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

Well, I have to admit it that my weight is not budging. At all. I lost about 15 pounds fairly quick, and now seem to have hit a brick wall. I know exactly what the cause is: I am not being truthful on my logging of food and calories consumed. I have a tendency to log my food "before" I actually eat it. I still follow my eating plan, however, I am not logging all the healthy "snacking" I am doing. I am not eating a hamburger or a hot dog. Instead, I am eating 3 servings of hummus or whole grain toast w/ organic almond butter and a banana.

I have been HUNGRY lately. Or at least I think I am. Maybe I am just bored. I am a SAHM to an adorable 2 year old (have 2 older girls as well). He is going through a crazy faze of yelling at the top of his lungs. So I have a tendency to not go out in public (unless I have to). I don't push myself on the treadmill like I do at the gym. I need to get off my butt and go to the gym. I have a much better workout there. I love the classes.

So back to my original problem. I am now going to start only writing down what I eat, as I am eating it. I need to hold myself more accountable. I am not happy about not losing anything the whole month of February. I ate so healthy, just too much. Gotta get this mindless eating under control, once and for all!

    they say we all underestimate what we eat, by as much as a quarter... so you could be ingesting a lot more calories than you need and not know it!
be careful, too, with calorie-dense foods like hummus. healthy, YES! but 3 servings is enough for a whole meal, not a snack...
good luck- you can do it!
also make sure you're getting at least a little exercise- it's MUCH EASIER to cut 250 cals and burn 250 cals than cut 500!!
