Keep on keeping on

Monday, March 21, 2011

I really didn't want to do my fitness routine for today. it's strength training and I didn't wanna do it and put it off all day! But after dinner as I was charting, I didn't want to leave that goal unchecked so I did and now I feel a great sense of accomplishment. It also made me thirsty enough to down some more water; enough to make the 8 glass a day goal. So that's two goals, no three cuz I stuck to the meal plan and hit all my targets for nutrition and calories. I even got a half cup of ice cream in as a snack. Having that to look forward to as a reward for not over eating at dinner was very helpful. Nighttimes are my downfall. I really do well all day, I don't starve myself or anything but I usually have no trouble keeping to a healthy eating plan during the day, or at least on workdays. But at night I typically overeat. When my kids were away at college my tactic to avoid eating overly large portions for dinner was Lean Cuisine meals beefed up with tons of non-starchy vegetables. But now that two of my kids are home I have to make family sized meals! It's always a challenge not to go back for seconds and pick at the leftovers. So the dessert treat is a good strategy. Think I'll get some nice raspberry sorbet for my next treat! It's lower in calories than the premium chocolate ice cream I had tonight! That and some nice fruit on top would be a really yummy reward for sticking to the healthy portions I need.
