Leting go of perfection and hit all the SP nutrition goals for the first time!
Saturday, December 29, 2012
I am feeling pretty excited because not only did I stay within my calorie range yesterday which is only like the 2nd or 3rd time since recommitting to SP around Thanksgiving, but I also ate "right." I got enough protein, didn't go over on fat yet still got enough of the right kind (well below the max on saturated fat), stayed on the lower end of the carb range, got enough fiber (barely), didn't go over on cholesterol (usually do because I eat eggs more than occasionally), and I even drank enough water which is always a challenge for me! It definitely helped that I ate more servings of fruit and veggies; that does fill me up and nourishes me. Surprisingly, I even broke down and had one of my homemade applesauce oat muffins (healthier recipe) from the freezer and I still did okay. So, I am realizing that I can indulge a little if I am doing well the rest of the day...and because I chose the healthier indulgence (instead of the brownies which were also in the freezer). SP has been telling me that little changes do add up...and maybe if I could just exercise 10 minutes today instead of zero minutes, it would be PROGRESS! Though usually I think 10 minutes isn't even going to begin to address my problem since I am so far gone, after my little success yesterday, today progress is good enough! I don't have to be PERFECT today!
