So after a month of birthday celebrations and going away parties
and a horrid night yesterday with 6 cupcakes
I was determined to get back on track before the month ended
. Not really thinking or planning what I would eat today I went about as I normally would. Had a yogurt and a bit of fruit for breakfast and ate what seems best at the cafeteria for lunch and came home and had my leftover cod with the new Kraft Fresh Makers and some creamed spinach and potatoes and when I was done and tracked all the stuff I realized I was under my goal.
And not just by a few calories but by a few hundred. I give myself a lot of room for mobility with my calories when I reset my goals so going under wouldn't be a bad thing. It would be within normal range if I was aiming for a weight loss goal of 2 lbs a week but I am good with .5-1 lbs a week. But it makes me feel confident
that I can actually do this. And do it for the rest of my life. That I can stay in a decent range without having to stress and worry and think all day about what I am eating and if I had too big a portion at dinner or lunch or how many calories does this have before I get to enjoy it. I made what I think are good choices without having to think about it.
