What are my trigger foods. Without a doubt it is ice cream. As matter of fact it is my gateway food. Ice cream can lead to cake and pie. Well why not they taste so good together.
I find that I tend to turn to ice cream when I am lonely or sad. To prevent the ice cream meltdown I will pick up the phone to call someone or go for a walk. If it is in the evening I will
reintroduce myself to my wii.
I think my diet and exercise plans haven't worked in the past because I tend to be a all or nothing type person. If I go over a few calories then it is a bust and I decide since I have already blown it I might as well have that ice cream. If I can't do an hour or two of exercise then I might as well not bother. So, I am now going to give myself permission to be imperfect.
I will do my best to stay in my calorie range but if I go a little bit over it is not the end of the world. Instead I will make adjustments for the next time. As far as exercise I will do my best to get at least thirty minutes but if I can only do ten minutes that is ok also. As long as I am moving.
I am going to cut a few calories by freezing a few containers of Greek yougurt instead having ice cream in the house. Lots of fresh veggies instead of junk food. Also I will use my two favorite dips, fat free plain non fat yogurt with Mrs Dash garlic herbs mixed in or plain non fat yogurt with hot sauce mixed in. As well as being dip they also make a great sandwhich spread.
