Summer 2012...

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Well school is out now...and I am finding it WAAAYY harder than last summer to get/stay on track! Between eating out and all the junk food cravings, this is definitely going to be a challenge. I at teetering at 165 and really want to knock off about 15 lbs to be my ideal weight.. Any tips? I am trying as hard as possible to track, also I need to work out an exercise schedule for myself. It is also extremely hard bc I am babysitting for the summer, which allows me to graze all day long. When I am in school I don't but now that I can eat whenever I want it is super hard! I know what I need to do, it is for some reason so hard for me to do it. I mean I did it last summer, what is the difference?! I need to stay motivated!! Thanks for reading my vent. Any suggestions can help.

    I'm feeling the exact same way. I know what i need to do but I have not been having the motivation or will power to stick with it. It sucks cause I'm like, "Ok, I did this before and I know I get results so why won't i do it and stick with it?" Your spark will come back :]

    Grazing is hard to stop, I could munch all day if I didn't play the self discipline card. One thing I did when I stopped smoking many years ago was to put a small seedless grape between my lips and see how long it could stay there before I ate it. If you measure out the cupful it can last all day!
    Make sure you drink plenty too, it IS the magic potion!
    best wishes, Sandra

    I've actually been finding it easier to stay on track since school has been out. I think the difference is that I'm not working, so it's easier to get a full night's sleep which helps my willpower, and to distract myself with fun things so I don't graze. I'd say focus on filling foods when you do eat (fiber, protein, healthy fats) and drink lots of water, and track your food if that works for you!
