Back on Track
Sunday, March 01, 2015
I seem to be getting back on track. It's not ideal but I've made a plan based on what I can work with. For the last few weeks I've been trying slim fast. I've been having them for two meals a day and then eating one typical meal and snacking whenever. Starting tomorrow I'm limiting my snacking and cutting out one sandwich (I usually have two sandwiches at lunch). I'm also going to try to track my food every day. Since starting I haven't been binge eating and not craving sugar like I usually do. Probably because the shakes are so sweet.
So here's my plan:
7:00 - breakfast - slim fast shake
12:00 - lunch - sandwich (either egg salad or turkey) and snack
4:00 - snack
6:00 - dinner - slim fast shake
8:00 - snack
My snack plans are to keep them under 200 calories. Some thoughts based on what's available at our store are bananas, apples, oranges, grapes, yogurt, fruit cup, apple sauce, granola bar, popsicle, dry cereal or crackers.
My goal is to eat less than 2000 calories a day, preferably around 1800. Also making sure I'm drinking lots of water. I've been really good about only drinking water.
It's not the healthiest plan but it's better than how I've been eating. I'm not going to worry about intentional exercise until the weather is warmer. I walk to and from work, plus I walk home for lunch. It's not far but it's a start.
I'm also not going to weigh myself or take measurements. When I don't lose weight it's too easy to quit, this way I can just focus on consistency and sticking to my plan.
