Day 4

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Well, yesterday was stressful but I stayed in my ranges! Success! I was starving in the middle of the day though, and just couldn't get to food. I really need to find some good filling food without a ton of carbs/calories. I always reach for carbs when hungry but that ups my calories so fast. When I get a free moment, I'll need to research some other food options to try, especially for lunches. I also walked for hours pushing my girls in their stroller which is like 60 pounds or more. And I'll be doing the same thing today and probably all summer long, lol. My legs are already pretty in shape from the gym but my back is sore today. That's a good thing-- I need to get more exercise outside of the gym and now that it's warmer out, I can. Yay!

Today should be both easy and hard. :) We're going out for the day with my cousin and her kids, so we'll be bringing snacks and I'll know what I'm going to eat. But then we're going out for dinner and I suck at making healthy choices at restaurants. All the other food always looks so good. However my hubby won't be at dinner so I might not even have time to eat while trying to keep the girls busy. :)

    I use my weekends to stock up on go-to's. For example, my crisper drawer is full of small containers with 3 oz. of baby carrots, already measured out and ready to go (35 cals). My pantry has 1-cup portions of popcorn, already popped (20 cals for light). These "convenience" foods make it easy for me to grab something when I need to without reaching for the "crap". They also make it easy for me to know exactly how much I am eating, regardless of whether or not I have time at that moment to measure. Perhaps this would work for you, too? It takes just a little bit of time, but it really helps me throughout the week.
