armbanding amuck -too many calories light

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Dear self,

You did a great job in the last week focusing on portion size and keeping the exercise high. You were consistent in daily exercise. You measured! way to go girl.

It is always a struggle to keep the goals realistic and it is time for a re-mapping of goals. You went a little gaga on this week. Is a 2000 calorie deficit a good thing? Is it healthier than eating fast food 5 days a week? It is as bad on the other side of the pendulum.

Too much deficit means loss of muscle in addition to fat. When you think the numbers look too sweet, remember that's how Ponzi schemes get perpetrated!

    If some is good then more must be better? Yes we all do it. Good for you to catch it!

    It's easy to get carried away, isn't it?! I think of it like a little mini-reward when I "have" to eat more to get that deficit right where I want it. It gives me an opportunity to be creative and think of some yummy and healthy choices to get those numbers right where I want them :)
