I'm really annoyed and disappointed with myself this week. I've known that I've needed to work on improving my diet beyond my small modifications of smaller portions and more home cooking. Well, this week I threw it all out the window and ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted to eat it. I haven't dared to get on the scale this week. I would not be surprised if I was back to 150 or a little over.
Darnit, ApplesandPB, what are you doing? I'm still exercising, but I think my diet is hurting my exercise capabilities. The last two jogs I've felt lightheaded and sick to my stomach. The routines are hard, but not *that* challenging. The only thing that makes sense to me is that my rotten diet is affecting my physical ability.
Oh, the ice cream I had this week...and the cheese....and the candy....and the chocolate....and the buttered things. It is TTOM, but I feel like I don't deserve that as an excuse because I went sooooooo far off base. I'm looking at this weekend and assuming it's going to be lost. So, then I look at next week and I realize I need to scramble together a plan.
Grrrr, why did I choose to do this to myself? I need to put the brakes on, remember I'm in charge and slow down.
no snacks next week - only eat food at meals! I've never been one of those people who feels better with small, healthy snacks throughout the day. When I snack, I'm mindlessly eating food I don't need.
at a bare minimum: 2 freggies a day.
protein at breakfast: I think I messed up this week by not eating enough protein at breakfast and setting myself off to a rough start. and more protein at lunch too. I'm pretty sure I'm eating too many carbs. example: today I had cereal and milk for breakfast with coffee and then a buttered bagel for lunch with hot chocolate and a bowl of grapes. Milk has been my only source of protein today. This is not my overall norm for eating, but the rest of the week my diet has been similarly atrocious.
bottom line: more protein, fewer carbs, more freggies, no snacks.
