Changes Needed NOW

Saturday, July 14, 2012

I've been a slacker. Yeah, I've upped the exercise, but even now I'm sitting on the couch, feeling dehydrated, completely resisting the idea of a workout.

I weighed in this morning at 147. This is the most I've weighed in almost a year.

How did it happen? Too much indulgence. Cookies. Cupcakes. Potato chips. Second helpings. Eating 500 calories at 9:00 at night. Bingeing as a way to deal with stress. Sometimes a petulant refusal to admit that I am making bad choices.

So...the new plan:

1. Plan meals and snacks ahead of time and STICK TO THE PLAN.
2. Plan exercise in, much like an appointment.

That's really all there is to it.

Now, I'm getting up to get some water, which I will sip while I plan out today's workout.

    I'm right there with you for many of the same reasons and I need to make changes now too. You came up with a plan and it's a good one. You can do it! Stay with it and you're going to see good results.

    You can do it! Let me know when you're going to TKD and where and I can sometimes come with you. Or walk with me during the week on my 4 mile walks. Whatever you want to do. Spark on friend!

    Viva la Plan!

Do some research into restricting carbs.....I have found it a helpful way to moderate my cravings & hunger
