First week back on SP and already failing...
Monday, December 09, 2013
I confess, I haven't even looked at SP since this past Friday. I mean I even have the app and everything on my phone... what a mess. To be honest I did try to eat consciously and not overindulge which I think i was a little successful at since I am not bloated or feeling sick to my stomach today. But the thing is that for weight loss to work you have to be held accountable, you have to track, review and make sure that you are following the program all day, every day, not just M-F, 9-5pm.
As stated on my previous post, I am not trying to "diet" I want to eat healthier. The reasoning behind using healthier as opposed to "diet" is that I believe that eating healthier will ultimately lead to weight loss. If I am trying to eat more whole grains, fruits and vegetables there will be no time for junk food. For example I used to stress about how to keep my breakfast calories below 500 and by mid-morning I was already famished, but now I have been eating 4oz of 2% cottage cheese, a fruit and herbal tea w/o sugar and I am able to keep it below 300. It is now close to lunch time and I will admit, I am starting to feel hungry but I will drink some water to keep my focused on trying to find a healthy lunch and not grabbing the nearest junk food available to me. Another area that I have to work on is bringing my meals from home. This is where I am the laziest. Even if I have left overs from the day before I don't always remember to bring it with me.
Well on a good note I have my Christmas shopping all done, now I just have to work on wrapping them all, so one stressor is out of the way! Yay... now just have to get through the rest of the month! No problem!
