Turkey burgers

Friday, January 07, 2011

I ate more than I should have last night for dinner and the bad thing is, I knew I was eating more than I should but I couldn't stop myself. We had turkey burgers, which doesn't seem so bad, but on sourdough bread and with mayo and cheese and I had 1.5 of them and then had pasta-roni. I was really hungry and we got home late after basketball practice (for my daughter, not me!).

All week, I have been starving by 5 or 6pm, just ravenous. I would eat more for lunch or in the afternoon but I'm already getting more than the recommended amount of calories in for that timeframe.

A few days ago I made my motivational collage and I keep it next to me at work. I've also copied down a few motivational statements and I'm pretty sure if I had taken one out and looked at it last night, I could have stepped away. I'm going to make sure to keep it with me for the weekend. We always eat out on weekends and I never eat properly so it will be tough for me.

The pain of passing up food is temporary. The rewards of weight loss are forever.

    Another idea if you are not doing it - keep healthy snacks in the car. And Welcome to SparkPeople!

    Sounds like you need more calories in the afternoon.

    Try a small snack like cheese and crackers...get low-fat cheese sticks, multigrain crackers (i love the Special K brand)....it eat right smack dab in the middle of when you eat lunch and dinner....so, I eat lunch 12 and dinner around 6...I usually eat my snack around 3pm! If you eat lunch at 12....and you don't eat again til 6, 7, or 8pm....your body is going to want to eat, eat, eat!!!!

    Maybe you need to get in more calories earlier in the day. If you are starving by 5 or 6 then over-doing it, you're not helping yourself. If you eat more during the day, you have more time to burn off the calories & not have them on you all night.

    Have you adjusted your calorie tracker lately? Maybe you need to update it if you've added on more exercise to your plan?
