oopsie and new goals

Sunday, February 23, 2014

Ugh... in my last blog post I was all gung ho about moving forward. But in reality, I did the opposite of moving forward. I moved backward... er... away form my goals, towards bad foods (both in quantity and quality), and I gained back some weight. Possibly up to 6 lbs.

But maybe not 6 lbs. I just weighed myself. I usually weigh in the mornings, but it's the afternoon, so maybe there is some variation there. And I'm sure some is water weight... as there were many salty things in my diet--- chips and queso, margaritas with a salted rim, etc...

But CLEARLY I cannot attribute all 6lbs to water and variation during the day. I know by what i have been eating, some damage has been done.

Anyway, not to focus on the bad... time to turn to how to be good :)
- Back to tracking. I'm ONLY successful when I track. Duh. How many times do I have to learn my lesson?!
- Exercise/activity- something is better than nothing. Whether it's racking up steps on my SP tracker or 10min of pilates, I should do something.
- Cut back on the liquid calories. Soda has snuck back in as a "treat". No mas! and the adult version of liquid calories as well... time to cut back.
- Keep the end goal in mind- healthy body to make healthy babies! the time is getting closer. And I'm old. I don't have more time to mess around with just because I can't get my act together. Plus it's not like I'm going to magically feed healthy foods to my kids if I don't have my own act together.

Just got back from the grocery store- first time in a while that I spent that much time in the produce section, hehe. My wonderful husband is preparing some healthy dishes for this week, and he's on board too. I couldn't ask for more!

    Oh yeah, tracking is so important. I try to track ahead of time when eating out just so I'll know more about my choices. Glad you have healthy groceries and someone to share the cooking. That makes it so much easier.
