End of day 3 of Plan Jan

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I started Monday getting back on track. I have acheieved all my goals this far.

PREPARATION has been the key! Back to basics kids.

The night before, I enter in my food for the next day. It is actually a relief to not be guessing what I am going to eat. I have it planned, tracked and I have everything I need to make the meals that I planned.

I have done the cardio kickboxing video from Coach Nicole twice this week so I have completed that. I didnt feel like it this morning but I knew that I wouldnt have time tomorrow or Friday so I better get stepping. So I did. Because I said I would.

I ran across this amazing recipe for m and m cupcakes with a peanut butter frosting. I kept thinking about them so after dinner last night, I baked them.
But all I ate was 10 m&m's and tasted the frosting.

Now today, I did eat one, but I had plenty of room in my calories for the day and still came in at the 1400 calorie goal that I set for myself this week. I also did not feel like the cupcake was calling me or that I did not have control over it. I made a choice, had nothing to feel bad about and that was the end of it.

(not like those damn cookies that I cannot stop eating or obsessing over!).

Friday, our friends from Utah are coming and it is gonna be "girls day" . The boys are gonna go to a race.We have pizza planned for dinner but again, I feel like I can handle it and we have lots of activities through the weekend so I will be ok.

The best thing I could have done was to DECIDE, ANNOUNCE and PLAN to succeed.

I am not gonna say that I wont stumble or fall again, but I will say it feels good to be standing up fighting. It is such a better place to be than hating myself, feeling gross and worthless and lazy. I dont like that side of me. I like THIS side of me.

Thanks for all your support, you guys. You help me more than you know!

    Great choice, you can do it. I need to adopt your plan because I've been sliding backwards.

    Yes, standing and fighting feels better than lying around and feeling hopeless, for sure. I need to derive inspiration from you and enter food in advance to take the guesswork out. Winging it has left me with big fat heavy wings!

    Good going! Isn't funny how when you write down your plan you feel like you HAVE to do what you have written down? I'm like that too. I should make goals and put it in my blog so I'm forced to stick with it. You are doing great.
