Time for a new plan

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

So tired of logging food. Therefore, it is time for a change of plan.

1. My evening meal needs to be 500 calories or less. Evening snack: 200 calories or less. I have daytime food under control at this time. It is the evening food that causes me trouble. So I will continue to eat reasonably during the day (800-1000 calories). At this time, I am not going to be concerned with the ratio of protein/carbs/fat, just make healthy choices.

2. I am keeping a "success" log. And not just for health-related items. I always focus on those things I said that I shouldn't or things I should have done that I didn't or mistakes that I made. As I do things successfully, I will be jotting them down in a small notebook. It will be a reminder of things that I do right!

    I haven't been active on Spark in a while. Thought I'd stop by and take a peek at your page. I like your "success" log idea!

    Recently someone suggested writing a blog on how you feel when you overeat or don't exercise and how you feel when you do. That helps some people find benefits to focus on when temptation strikes.

    Hope you can get a handle on why the evening is such a battle ground and how to conquer it! Good plan to change things when what you're doing gets tedious or boring. And your success journal is a great idea! I know it really helped me to come up with 3 things a day I can be thankful for in my last 8 week challenge, and the even more difficult one of listing 3 things I did well today in my current challenge. It's all about where we set our minds - and you know that. Congratulations on making an effort to follow through on what you know! emoticon
