Ups & Downs
Monday, March 07, 2011
I suspect that I'm not alone in that weekends seem to bedevil me. I have all the best intentions but still manage to go over my calories for the day. Not by a lot, and not because I'm eating things that I shouldn't--I'm just eating too much of the healthy stuff. I just need to rein it in a bit more on the weekends and I'll be okay. During the week I have structure and it's much easier to maintain routine.
On the plus side, this weekend I actually did track all of my eating. This is the first weekend that I've actually done so. I think it's because I recently received a netbook as a gift, so I can just sit right there in the living room and log my food very conveniently, rather than going to the back bedroom, waiting forever for the desktop PC to boot up, etc. The netbook just makes it easier. I didn't realize that it would be a weight loss tool! But, I'm a gadget kinda gal, so it's not all that surprising.
So, I see where my trouble areas are, and I'm going to have to plan better for the weekends to make sure I don't go overboard anymore. I'm also realizing that I can't put off exercising forever. I am going to have to incorporate that into my lifestyle as well. I've been avoiding it, but I know if I just get on my treadmill a couple times a week it will make a difference in how fast I lose. Not that I want to go crazy and lose super-fast, but a little faster would be nice. I guess I'll start gearing myself up mentally for walking.
I'm a work in progress...
