Week 3: Calories, Calories, Calories

Monday, August 01, 2011

Feeling pretty good about getting my weekly workouts in. Made it to the Gym 3 times this week, and played Dance Central at home 2 times for about an hour each. Next week the goal is to get at least one more trip to the gym in, and to play 30 minutes of Dance Central daily.

I am really struggling, when it comes to sticking with my daily meal plan. I do really well planning out the day, and deciding what I am going to eat, and how much of it. During these meals, I measure everything out and only eat what is there. But after dinner I am finding myself fighting with the snack monster. This is usually when my major sugar cravings kick in. I have been trying to fight these cravings by keeping my water intake high, but I caved in a few days this week.

I also attended a wedding on Saturday. I tried to keep my portions small, but I still caved for the piece of cake. Sunday was a lazy day, which left me feeling snacky, and unfortunately found myself munching on several snacks that were not included in the plan.

All in all, I guess this week was successful though. I did manage to drop another pound. Didn't quite reach my 2 pound goal for the week, but at least I am still dropping something.

This week I plan to kick it up a notch, by adding an extra trip to the gym, and trying yet again to stick to my daily meal plans.

    I totally understand the after dinner snacking thing. I'm not even hungry sometimes, just feel the need to eat. That comes from many years of a bad habit for me! I'm trying to have fruit or celery/peanut butter rather than a not so healthy snack. Sometimes I can do it, sometimes not so much. It's definitely a struggle but one I'm ready to continue to tackle!

    Nice job on the 1-pound gone forever!
