I weigh myself daily to get a handle on what normal weight fluctuations are all about. If I gain a pound from one day to the next, I dont freak out, I dont put myself down, I just make a mental note. When I reflect on what I ate over the past 24 hours, I realize that I did not overeat by 3500 calories to put on the pound, however, I may have been drinking tons of water and tea. Remember if you just drank a bottle of water, you just drank a pound, and we should all be drinking pounds of water.
I made a big list of everything I cook that my family likes. I also made a list of side dishes. These lists are made up of recipes I know or can get my hands on easily. This way, when I am uninspired, I just look at my list and pop into the store on the way home. Also, when I come across a new recipe that is quick, easy and enjoyed by the whole family, it goes on the list.
This is a podcast I love specifically about FAT LOSS. Topics include diet, exercise and motivation. Ray Hinish and Blythe Alberg are the moderators and are both in top athletic shape. Blythe is a "professional fitness competitor", which means that she competes in female bodybuilding competitions. Her goal is to maximize fat loss using resistance training and diet to keep her body in good competitive form. However, she is not all muscled up and huge, she is simply in excellent physical shape.
