Well, I am learning that life is a bunch of combinations. I listen to what someone has to tell me, try it on for size and then make decisions. It might not fit and so I take it off, it might seem to big or small so I alter it to fit me or it just fit perfect, though I rarely find it does.
So it goes with my lifestyle. I have altered a bit what I am doing since my last blog. I am still not worrying so much about fat, but lately I have gained a few pounds. I was eating a lot at night, which I told myself I wouldn't do, but low and behold I had made it a habit by conitnually doing it.
Last Wednesday I stepped on the scale and had gained another 1/2 pound. That was a 1/2 pound gain for the third consecutive (sp?) week. That sucks. I decided something has to be done.
I am now eating on a time schedule. I know it may sound too constrictive for some, but for me it is perfect. I know I am eating enough because I started tracking my calories again, but now I am telling my body when to eat. I have been doing this for a week and I am finding that my body if falling into line.
I know that I just have to make a habit of it. As always I will be strict in the beginning to be sure that my body gets used to it and I will ease off a bit once it has, but I have decided for 3 weeks straight I must be strick. That is how long they say it takes for us to form new habits.
I already lost a 1/2 pound and know that I can do this. I am trying to eat at the high end of my fat range because otherwise my body goes nuts and by the end of the week I just want to gorge on fat which, of course, is no good.
So as my entry title states I am combining all I have learned into something that will work for me. If anyone reads this I hope you will do the same.
