Week 24 In Review
emoticon Planned snacking has worked on most days. I feel satisfied and also in control. I need to continue planning my afternoon and evening snack.
emoticon It is eye opening to look at the food log the day after. I had several good days, where I stuck to plan and it went well. On the days it did not go well, it was because I did not have much of a plan or strategy or simply went with the flow.
emoticon I only swam 2x last week because my shoulder feels sore. It doesn’t hurt like before. I think it is simply weak and needs more of a load, but I want to be easy on it. I walked on days I didn’t swim. I took one rest day. I only did ST/PT on one day.
emoticon I have been tidying up the house. I am happy to have more flat surface free of stuff. It makes the house feel more tranquil and it keeps the household happy.
emoticon I read and reflected on the second article in the Mind Over Body series and will use the scale as feedback to see how I did this week: Down a little bit. Great, better than nothing or gaining.

Next week’s plan:
* Continue planned snacking. Work in one afternoon treat and one evening treat.
* Continue logging food and analyzing the following day.
* Continue evening tidying.
* Continue 60 minutes of fitness 5-6 times per week.
emoticon Get out of the kitchen when I’m done eating. I ate a little too much one day because I lingered with the food too long. My goal each day is to go to bed empty. That is, there is nothing in my stomach being digested.
emoticon Read and reflect on the third article in Mind Over Body: Moving Beyond Toxic Guilt www.sparkpeople.c

The article suggests how to listen to ‘our little voice’ and get over beating ourselves up about the things we do or don’t do. First it suggests to listen to that little voice that pops up when we are about to do something we shouldn’t. Next consider, “Is this what I really want to do?” Think it through. Take a decision. Note the decision and how it feels. Use the information for the next time that little voice pops up. That’s it. No beating up required.

    I love the planned snacks. That is just...brilliant! WOW!! Also love the clearing off the flat surfaces. It sure takes a lot out of the mind clutter when there isn't stuff laying all around. It frees up the mind to think of other things! :-) Great plans for a great week!!! :-) We can do it!!!

    "Planned snacking" Hmmm... I need to think about that. My tendency is to look for things to do to avoid studying. One of those things is wandering to the fridge. Maybe planned snacking will keep me out of the fridge at random times AND help keep me focused on studying
