Got back from a work trip with the scale up, which I expected. But, honestly, I also expected it to go back down pretty quickly once I was back home and in the swing of things. Well, it's now Thursday and the scale has refused to budge. It even crept up a bit.
I WILL NOT LET THIS STAND.
I have been pretty hungry this week, so over, but close, to my calorie range. I'm going to have to buckle down and do a few low calorie days. I'm shooting for under 1300 at least today and tomorrow, and then back to 1500 for Saturday.
I find 1200-1300 calories REALLY HARD to accomplish. But I have just spent 10 minutes playing with the tracker and I've come up with today's plan and it is pretty good in my opinion.
Breakfast: Sample protein shake from RD, NutriBulleted with ice and water. (It wasn't very good, but it was only 150 calories and 12g of protein so I sucked it up.)
Snack: 1/2c grapes and a mini babybel.
Lunch: Salad and quorn nuggets.
Snack: Yogurt and granola.
Dinner: enchilada, avocado, sour cream.
Dessert: Halo Top.
Totals: 1288 calories and 21% from protein.
If I can get in the habit of planning my meals -- AND STICKING TO THE PLANS -- I can do this. I still get all my snacks and dessert which is really what matters. ;)
I was only 1.5 pounds away from the lowest I have ever been. Now I'm nearly 5 pounds away. This is going the wrong direction and I will not let it continue.
