The mid-week fumble

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Every Sunday or Monday, I renew my resolve to get back in gear and lose weight. I do ok. And then somewhere around Wednesday (give or take a day), it all comes to a complete halt.

It could be almost anything. I really love the dinner and want to taste more. I had a hard day at work and just don't want to think. My kid is sick. Whatever it is. Something derails me, and I find it extremely hard to find my way back. I might even track the food the first day. But the second day? Hardly. And then I don't do it at all.

Until the weekend. And then I start feeling it again. Just a little rest goes a long way. I guess.

Now that I've recognized there is a pattern (and there is), I need to figure out how to put a stop to it. Or how to at least start right back up even if one day went horribly wrong.

    Well I would say you have found the important part of your battle, hon! Bravo! Recognizing the patterns of our down falls are the biggest part of helping ourselves.

    Now that you are armed with that knowledgethe trick is to find ways to work with it. You state that by wed you are starting to fall...so then that's when my suggestion comes to either a leftover from a day on track, that you specifically made extra of for this day. And/or put together packages all ready and put together in a big ziplock freezer bag, kept in the freezer for just such a time to pop into the crockpot. Just pop it in your pot, turn it on, on your way to work and it s ready when you get home. Have a bag of salad made up in the fridge to go with it. Fast and easy when you get home! emoticon
    It does require a little planning of course, but you mentioned on site that you plan your week of meals...this just extends that planning a little
