But there were carrots in it!

Monday, April 01, 2013

Yesterday was a partial success. Easter at my Aunts included a lot of childhood goodies. The plan was to eat a full meal but resist any sweets. I did ok until my cousin's wife brought out the chocolate carrot cake. It was well spiced and she said the whole thing contained 4 cups of shredded carrot, so I probably got a half serving of vegetables out of my slice. But with the sour cream frosting and me eating every crumb I'm not sure it was worth the 500-600 calories I spent on it. Especially since instead of coming home and eating a salad for dinner I waited too late then caved in on some pasta. At least I kept it sort of light.

I'm having a hard time getting my eating in check. With contractors arriving to work on the house and deranging my cooking/eating schedule I don't expect this week to be any better. I'm going to try to focus on swimming and exercise and just not doing anything stupid food wise.

April is going to be a busy month so any loss will be good. Well, better than gaining. My focus is on the house and I will see where things stand once I get that past that hurdle.

To be clear, I'm not giving up or taking a break. I'm just not going to do as much cooking or push myself to keep minimum calories. I'm aiming for 1/2 to 1 lb per week lost rather than 2 lbs. On paper. It never seems to match the scale perfectly.
