I started Monday getting back on track. I have acheieved all my goals this far.
PREPARATION has been the key! Back to basics kids.
The night before, I enter in my food for the next day. It is actually a relief to not be guessing what I am going to eat. I have it planned, tracked and I have everything I need to make the meals that I planned.
I have done the cardio kickboxing video from Coach Nicole twice this week so I have completed that. I didnt feel like it this morning but I knew that I wouldnt have time tomorrow or Friday so I better get stepping. So I did. Because I said I would.
I ran across this amazing recipe for m and m cupcakes with a peanut butter frosting. I kept thinking about them so after dinner last night, I baked them.
But all I ate was 10 m&m's and tasted the frosting.
Now today, I did eat one, but I had plenty of room in my calories for the day and still came in at the 1400 calorie goal that I set for myself this week. I also did not feel like the cupcake was calling me or that I did not have control over it. I made a choice, had nothing to feel bad about and that was the end of it.
(not like those damn cookies that I cannot stop eating or obsessing over!).
Friday, our friends from Utah are coming and it is gonna be "girls day" . The boys are gonna go to a race.We have pizza planned for dinner but again, I feel like I can handle it and we have lots of activities through the weekend so I will be ok.
The best thing I could have done was to DECIDE, ANNOUNCE and PLAN to succeed.
I am not gonna say that I wont stumble or fall again, but I will say it feels good to be standing up fighting. It is such a better place to be than hating myself, feeling gross and worthless and lazy. I dont like that side of me. I like THIS side of me.
Thanks for all your support, you guys. You help me more than you know!
