My schedule has been more hectic than I was planning on it being. Yesterday I went to my brothers house and ate a veggie burger with a salad with lots of avocado and beets with goat cheese and corn. No, it's not unhealthy but the portion was too big! Today my mom prepared dinner and of course i ate it. I realized that I need to make dinner for myself, even though I keep wanting it to work when my mom makes it, because I know I will get full by the meals I make, plus I will be able to control portion sizes. If I go over my daily limit by even 100 or 200 cals, it makes a big difference in terms of not losing weight. When i'm home I feel pressure (mostly from myself) to eat with the fam, but I need to just make myself cook dinner! Not that it's a big thing, but when my mom makes it I end up eating more because 1) i will eat before dinner when i get too hungry and 2) my portion sizes are bigger. Plus then I can't track calories and then i get nervous that I'm eating too much. But then if i don't eat enough i eat too much later.
tomorrow I wanted to go to spin class but i can't go anymore because I have a drs apt which i had to switch to the morning. And then wednesday is july fourth. ugh i feel like i'm never going to get on track with this! so frustrating.
I'm good once I have a routine established, but trying to establish one with all this stuff that I'm needing to work around is stressful and difficult!
sorry if it's repetitive, i have a million thoughts at once!
