I Was on Track and then my Train Derailed

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Today I had a plan. I wrote it up last night. I followed the plan (mostly) so how did I go off track emoticon

My meals were fine today and I am happy with that. Where I went off track was with my snacks. We had some leftover crackers and ice cream left from Sunday so I ate some of it. I think that I wasn't satisfied with my lunch, even though it was yummy. Salad with walnuts and blueberries. I found this article interesting.

How Can I Lose Weight? 4 Secrets of Skinny People
from Eating

Here's the highlights:

Skinny Secret 1: Step Away From the Screen
The undistracted eaters reported feeling fuller than the group that ate in front of a computer screen

Skinny Secret 2: Eat Water Filled Foods
Foods with a high water content—think soups, salads, cucumbers and watermelon—help you feel full and satisfied on fewer calories.

Skinny Secret 3: Imagine Eating Before You Eat
Imagine eating the food before you eat it, then you will be familiar with it and not crave it. I'm not sure if this works but will give it a try when I'm craving licorice.

Secret 4: Take a Multivitamin
An obesity researcher suggests that the reason that taking a multivitamin helps you lose weight is that when your body is low on vitamins and minerals, your appetite fires up—prompting you to eat more to replenish the nutrients you’re missing.

On another note, I also nailed my fitness plan today. I ran intervals on the treadmill for 30 minutes and then later on did some Wii walking.
Got over 12, 000 steps today! emoticon
