All or nothing mentality!

Thursday, September 12, 2013

I have 3 weeks left until my 2nd Vacation of the year and then a few weeks later I'm going on another one and then a few weeks later I'm going on my last vacation of the year and before I know it the year will be over and I will either have gained weight, maintained weight or lost weight! I would really like that it be the lost weight option but, in order for that to happen I need to start using my all or nothing mentality and hope that the "All" wins. I'm exercising so that's not the problem I just have to many excuses to eat this or eat that or pick at this or pick at that and apparently the 21,171 average steps that I take each day is only enough to keep me maintaining. So I have two choices ... I can either exercise more or I can track my food and stay within my ranges! I want to do it but, I need to come up with a plan. emoticon

    Do you have the sparkpeople app on your smartphone? I find its very helpful at tracking when I don't have time to sit down at the computer, my phone is always with me.

    I have the same problem, without the vacations though. But I track my food. I've been getting by with eating what I want just not a lot of it. That's not working for me anymore. I guess I have to really adjust my diet. emoticon emoticon

    Tracking helps regardless of your calories, because you start making better choices. I recently got good advice - you can't out exercise a bad diet.

Enjoy your vacations, sounds like fun!
