So there I'm blogging bout my disappearing buddies (and some stil have really fallen off the radar) & then I go missing - but here's what I did yesterday:
10 minutes yoga
Fed myself, the animals & got breakfast ready for DH
Walked the dogs
Went to my WW meeting
Stopped at Target for sundries
Did some food shopping
Dropped off/pick up books at the library
Went to vitamin shoppe to replenish supplements
Stopped at another grocery store
Fed myself, DH & the animals
Very little time to spark!
I lost the weight I'd gained the previous week, which is the reason for the subject. I've started a new eating plan, as some of you know & here's what I think is working:
More frequent meals. I'm able to fit in an afternoon snack, which I rarely seemed to be able to do before & that definitely helps.
Higher protein breakfasts. Much more satisfied - I didn't realize how hungry I was before.
Getting in the majority of my carbs by the afternoon.
The reason for the caution is that I've had good results whenever I try a new plan, it seems, only to go right back to my plateau in a few weeks. And it's not that I'm trying really weird plans, just always trying new things. I also started a new workout plan to help get thru my plateau, so we shall see.
For now, even if the majority of the food is so-so, I'm actually enjoying just feeling satisfied again. And mostly crave-free.
I didn't even follow it 100% last week, having pizza for dinner one night (the night of my 5 mile race, tho) & an egg bagel with belly lox for lunch that same day. AND lunch out at a buffet the Friday before. And TOM expected in a few days. Not to mention the 3/4 of a protein brownie I devoured after my speed workout on Wed night (right before WI) cause I was ravenous when I got home.
I worry a bit about IDI (I deserve it) syndrome setting in. Like the vita top I had after swimming last night - I wasn't that hungry, but I'd planned for it so I ate it. Altho I did wake up hungry this morning . . . but it just got me to thinking if little things like that keep me on my plateau. I did so well last week & ate a lot, so obviously I need to eat more, right? Or do I?
Well, there ya go. Think I just made up for the missing blog yesterday! And I have even more to say, but i'll save it for another blog.
