Day 1 of the Summer Challenge

Saturday, June 23, 2012

It's the first day of the Summer %% Challenge I joined.
It will last 8 weeks, from 23rd June till 18th August. I need to lose 11 pounds to achieve my 5% goal.

Morning - started great with a 30 min walk while grocery shopping.
- at my grandma's, I was faced with several temptations and couldn't resist all of them. So, I ate a piece of raspberry cake.
Lunch time - pizza day. Dh made pizza and I tried to eat 1 serving but ended up eating 2 servings.
Snack - dh was eating ice-cream so I just couldn't say no..'s 14:30h and I've already made 3 mistakes. (cake, 2nd serving for lunch, ice-cream).
Not to mention that my fridge is suddenly filled with tempting food because on Monday we have guests, and I have to bake a cake.

These days will be very hard because there are many birthdays and gatherings. Temptation is all around me, hot summer days, my baby needs me, and I need to endure..

I will have dinner around 5, go for a walk around 7 pm, and I don't want to eat anything else after that.

    hi selina, take it easy, you have to eat something or you'll really binge! just take it small-small, stop and think how your body will deal with what you put into it. enjoy a bit of temptation, just don't overdo it! the trick is not getting guilty about things.

    I agree! Sometimes when I know I am going "off track" I remind myself I AM CHOSING TO DO THIS! If I do have an off day - and I can have a DOOZY of one - I still record the food. It could have been a lot worse and at least you were thinking of what you were doing and you got in exercise! emoticon

    Eh, mistakes, shmistakes! You didn't make mistakes. You made CHOICES. And they're fine choices. Maybe you could have made better ones, but you did the best you could with what you had at the time.

    FWIW, I totally would have eaten 4 or 5 servings of pizza, so see? Not so bad!
