Why is it that some days despite all your best intentions you just can't help but be your own worst enemy? I hate to say it but I think having my kids around all day every day for summer is killing my good diet. They stress me out you see.. plus they want to snack constantly so I have to keep so many snacks in the house.. and the next thing you know I'm eating chocolate and graham crackers and once I start I think, "well.. I blew it, I wasn't supposed to eat that, might as well eat another one".
I came to the computer and tracked it in an attempt to stop myself. It didn't work.
Just now I added up my total for the day. But really I can tell by how my belly feels I ate too much.
I posted little notes all over the house "140 10/1" i.e. 140 lbs by October. I am totally feeling like it's not going to happen. The notes aren't stopping me from overeating. I'm only eating within my calorie range half the time. Sure I exercise a lot but that's not enough to budge the lbs if I'm eating graham crackers and beer and chocolate. Oh yeah and I'm supposed to be trying to beat prediabetes here. Now I'm not sure I can live with the fail aspect of that.
