Keeping On

Sunday, September 01, 2013

Just a brief note to say I rocked my calories today after going way over yesterday, AND got a 15-miler this morning. 63 days. :) :) :) Weigh-in is tomorrow but I'm pretty sure my gym is closed for the holiday, since it is at a state school. If I don't weigh tomorrow, I'll have to wait until Tuesday. I like weighing on the same scale every time.

Also, I wanted to share something I realized tonight; that KNOWING what I'm going to eat, way ahead of time, is really helpful in staying in my calories. I feel like I am mentally prepared for it, I can log it ahead of time, and having a PLAN in place seems to work for me. It may not work for everyone, but it works for me and it might work for you too. :) I keep a little greaseboard on my fridge, and on it for every day of the week, I list what's for dinner, and I stick to it as much as I can. I look at my calendar and see who has what going on, and I try to plan easy crockpot meals on the hectic nights, and on nights I have less going on, the wok comes out. Anyway, it seems to be working.

Finally, a small victory. When we went to Indiana in June, I got a skirt on sale while we were there, and it was pretty snug. Today I wore it to church, and not only was it not snug anymore, but I was able to take it off without unzipping it, it was so loose. Pretty cool problem to have. :) :) :)
