4 ounces DO COUNT!

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Lol I'm down 4 ounces this it made me laugh but you know what? I will take it! I'm still heading in the right direction.
I have had a great couple of weeks, very focused and staying on plan. NO BAKING!

I have survived Mothers day and one other weekend without gaining weight even while eating in restaurants and going to the movies and other events. It feels good.

Here are a couple of things that are working for me

SHEER WILL AND DETERMINATION- I'm ready to lose weight again, not just stay put or gain.

THE Spark solution book- bought it, read most of it and have not implemented any of BUT its a great starting point and I will pick and chooses things from it as I continue on. But I got 3 free months of

SPARK COACH so I signed up for the plateau busters team. I gotta say, it is very helpful to check in each morning and spend 5 minutes focusing on the goals of the day. 5 minutes to get my head in the game. It helps. A lot.

TRACKING- I am planning all my dinners so I never have to wing it. Breakfast and lunches are OK, I dont struggle with that. But dinner needs to be planned so I have everything on hand. I put it in my tracker and that tells me what I can eat or need to eat for breakfast and lunch.

FARMERS MARKET- in my town, its every Saturday right now so I like going and getting fresh stuff. It feels like I'm being healthy for even showing up. It keeps me on track.

So that is what's up with me. No BIG plans this weekend, just another reminder to me to NOT EAT LIKE A WOLF this weekend!

What's up with y'all?

    This sounds great! And I've been meaning to tell you, you inspired me to have the best weekend...since I can remember. Not perfect, but really pretty darn good, so I was happy about that. Thank you! I know what you mean about planning dinner. I tried to do a lot more of that this month. My other meals do not vary that much, especially the lunches I pack for work, and even though I vary my breakfasts, they mostly fall within a certain calorie range, but I really went back to planning dinners a lot more carefully. So in a couple of days I will weigh myself, which I do once a month, and see how I did. And OUR farmer's market is on Saturday morning, too. I never miss it unless I go away, LOVE it!
