Need to get my weekend nutrition together!

Monday, March 18, 2013

So from a nutritional stand point, my weekend was a nightmare. I def need to get control of this. It did not help that my boyfriend's dad's girlfriend brought a bunch of leftover cheese burgers from some party. And then my mom knew we were coming on sunday and bought cookies and ice cream. I just really want to get to the point where these temptation don't send me crazy. Where food is a normal thing that I eat when I'm hungry and I don't have to sit there and count calories. I want to get to the point where I can indulge every now and then because 90% of the time I have an overall healthy diet. It's so frustrating. Thank god I am an athlete and burn a lot of calories too otherwise I'd be 1000 pounds.

In any case, that is my monday morning rant. Apart from my nutrition nightmare, I had a pretty good weekend. When I got home on friday, we took the 2 puppies and 2 chihuahuas for a walk. This is only the second time the puppies have gone for a walk and they did a million times better this time. They made it twice around the block and last time they only made it to the end of the road!

I had a 3 hour skate practice on saturday that started off a little rough since I didn't have my special skate feet protectors. But eventually my feet went numb and I had a pretty decent skate practice. After practice, we went to my boyfriend's nephew's game which the weather was beautiful and perfect. They won again in a closer matchup of 8 to 6. After that, we relaxed and watched a movie.

On sunday, we planned on spending most of the day at my mom's house. She wasn't going to be home till 5:30pm, but we were in need of some cable and internet! We even brought the puppies for my mom to meet. The NASCAR race was also on and my driver won so I was very excited. My boyfriend left for a couple hours to go to his grandma's wedding while I cooked dinner for him and my mom. That was the first time I cooked for my mom and I think she was impressed! She also loved the puppies! They behaved themselves very well and really enjoyed my cat's toys with the bells.

The weekend of course went by super fast as I sit at work today with no motivation. My boyfriend is at his grandma's funeral as I type this. I feel sad for him because I know he is heart broken but he does not want to talk about it. I know it's eating him inside, but he want to be strong for his family.

    Jessica, Do the 1-day Master Cleanse. Don't listen to the b.s. about 7 day or 10 day crap. Just one day only, not two or three. More is not always better. You'll gain the spiritual strength and learn to be in control of foods.

    I know what you mean about not wanting to be watching what you eat forever but that is what we will have to do. Getting used to "normal" portion sizes is something I will always have to work on but using a smaller plate does help. I've also found that I am making generally better choices, my taste buds have altered a tiny bit. If I can't get several portions of veg a day I feel cheated.

    I read the book overcoming overeating recently. Like Sparkpeople it says diets don't work and that any deprivation makes us want to binge as a result. They suggest you have your fill of what you need so it doesn't have the same pull it would if it was forbidden. It makes sense if you think what we are like after we have pigged out at Christmas. It's fine if food doesn't have an emotional attachment. That needs a different approach. I'll let you know what else I find out.

    Sending best wishes to your other half. He'll deal with his grief in his own way, be prepared for a few silent hours.

    Good luck for the rest of the week
