letting go of exuses

Friday, January 23, 2015

The weekends I sometimes struggle with eating too many calories. Tonight I enjoyed eating out at a Mexican restaurant- yes I am over my calories for the day but I've already planned to be active enough to burn 1000 calories tomorrow. We stopped after dinner to get our usual Friday night sweet before bed treat, but I put my over 300 choice back and grabbed my go to 60 calorie sweet fix of tootsie pops. I know I don't want those extra calories. Tomorrow we have a shopping trip to a big mall planned and we're intending on a trip to Shake N Steak- but I said NO! I've worked hard to get this little bit of weight off, and THIS girl has eaten TOO much for TOO long! And yes I've had a lot happen to me in life, but I'm done making exuses. I made myself overweight no one else! So, I'm done with the exuses! I love ME and food is NOT going to win! Fat is not going to win! I'm going to kick it's ass! I can do this!

    Just start with one clean day. I try to stay 1200-1300 and get in at least one mile of walking. I do better on my Disney days. It is 1.25 miles around Epcot, so I do two laps, have my veggie burger I bring with me. Then I do the third lap, so I end up with four plus miles because I walk in from parking lot plus go other places in park for rides. Today was Sea World day, walked before Shamu show and after. I tend to only have 400-500 calories combined for breakfast and lunch. Save the other for a decent dinner. Orange and Apple for lunch, spaghetti meat sauce over green beans, garlic bread and wine for dinner. 1300 calories 202 lbs now looking for 199 within two weeks. Be good, it gets easier. Sincerely, Carolyn
