Day 14

It wasn't a bad day, really. I did, however go over my calories... by about three hundred. I'm not going to beat myself up over it though. I thought about it a while and I just don't feel like berating myself.

A. I still didn't go over my BMR calories (Basal Metabolic Rate). And I didn't spend the day sleeping, so I still probably lost a little.

B. I did okay for most of the day. I just got a little crazy at supper.

C. It's not the end of the world. I'm still ahead by 2.5 lbs. for my total goal, so I'm not going to sweat it. So what? Not the end of the world. Stressing out will only produce more cortisol which will in turn make me fatter. We aren't going there.

What did I do yesterday??? Hmmm... I spent the day with my daughter, Sara. We shopped for some socks for my husband, had lunch, picked up a couple of things at the grocery and came home. Later in the evening, I picked up my husband and afterwards made a big dinner for my family. We had hamburgers, cottage cheese, chips, baked beans and corn on the cob. It was pretty delicious! If I hadn't had those dumb chips I would have been fine! Darn it! Oh well. Fall down seven times, stand up eight. I've got this!

Peace and Love to all,

    You're doing great! My goal for right now is just recording what I eat for dinner...cause I haven't done that for a very long time. Keep up the amazing work!

    Congratulations on making your goals-I think we beat ourselves up too much , so good for you on not doing that! Have you ever noticed that men will eat something and be done with it, and women obsess over things instead? Only in that one respect would I like to be like a man!! HAha! Anyways-Your dinner sounded good, heres one idea-skip the bun on hamburger, just extra bread-and count your corn as starch-The beans also are a starch-so with bun, corn, beans, chips, that is all starch-but I agree, yummy! Maybe a salad with the bunless burger and some corn or beans-Just a thought!I think its great when we are mindfully eating and thats something I am trying to do today! I will friend you and hopefully we can encourage each other!! Julie

    I hope you can achieve you goal. I was losing a pound every 3 days for a little while, but it has slowed down from there. I think for me at least, it's hard to stay so focused on food and fitness to the degree necessary to drop a pound every 3 days. Are you doing meal replacement shakes, low calories, no carbs? I will check out your blog again and see how you are doing.
