October 18th - Still pushing

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

I managed to get in a pretty good Last Chance Workout today despite all of the distractions that have been thrown at me.

I have been struggling with my eating habits again this week so far. My portions have been larger than normal (and larger than they should be). I'm eating healthy snacks throughout the day, but for some reason I still feel like I'm starving after eating dinner. And my sweet tooth, which I rarely have, it kicking this week. I have no clue what is going on with my body right now, but I have to figure it out. I'm determined not to let it stress me out - stressing almost always backfires and throws my weigh-ins off. And since tomorrow is my weigh-in day, I'm not going to let anything stand in my way. I've been making progress again, even if only a little at a time, and I want to stay on that track.

One other bad habit I have is spending a lot of time on the computer. I am working hard at breaking that habit and so far it's going well. I usually turn the computer on first thing in the morning and get off and on throughout the day. I've been waiting until later in the morning or early afternoon before even turning it on just so the temptation isn't there. And I still get plenty of time to do what I want online later in the day.

This week is a week to break some bad habits and I'll keep doing what I can as I open up my eyes to discover other unhealthy habits and work toward those as well.

    Nighttime is the worst for me, too. I have to ask myself if I'm really hungry of if it's something else going on. If I'm truly hungry I eat but something healthy preferably with protein as that seems to help keep hunger at bay.

    I've been trying chocolate protein powder for my sweet tooth with strawberries or banana mixed in....unless it's the night before weigh-in....then it's just the milk and PP emoticon

    Here's to a great WI for both of us tomorrow!
