So I need to really set some ground rules at home again. I'm looking at the container my hubby packed me last night for lunch today. I ate half of it and I'm stuffed, so I'm looking at the other half thinking, wow that's a lot of food he packed. Last night he made my plate for me - which is uncommon. I couldn't eat all of that either - I told him too much, he agreed. Night before he bought chips & dip. I was smart, i got a small bowl of chips and a couple tablespoons of dip - better than my before healthy half bag & bowl of dip - but worse than my healthier (skipping those chips/dips altogether, or only eating five or six chips with dip). Now my hubby does love the sexier new us, and agrees that we are in our "middle" stage of losing weight. We got through the Inital phase (I lost 60, he lost 90) Now we both want to lose another 40. And we will, and I'm going to make sure of it! lol. First I have to get us back to not having certain items in the house.. and doing things like buying the mini versions of snacks if they must be in the house, at the same time the portion control has to be set. And I MUST exercise MORE. I need to dedicate 45-60 minutes to exercise (5-10 to get dressed, 30 min exercise, 5-10 to shower/cool off/change). I have to remind myself THIS is IMPORTANT to me and it's what I WANT. My new rule is goin to be when I get home I am exercising before anything else. I'm going to try that tonight. I'll write later to say how it goes. I also have a roast in the crock pot for tonight's dinner, so it will be about a smaller portion & self control. I already ate enough for lunch!!! Yikes! lol
