Why do I keep sabotaging myself? I SWORE today that I’d stick to my guns and not snack or pick at food and what did I do???? Yep I snacked and picked at food. I planned on allowing 200 cal today to eat snack crackers because they are easy to eat at work. Well my friend gave me 1/2 granola bar and 1/2 her snack crackers too! Then another friend mentioned to me she had bought Garlic Tricuits and didn’t like them, so what do I do??? Yep I had to eat some. Then when I got home my PB Hershey Kisses were calling my name! I calculated my calories for today and I’m a little over 1000 calories and of course the majority of them are from fat, then carbs, then protein. Good news though. I already plan to have a piece of plain fish tonight with some zucchini so that’ll get my protein count up and give me a nutriotious filling dinner. Second, I have the PB Kisses in my purse and they will be taken to work tomorrow so my co-workers can enjoy them and I can get them out of my sight! More good news, I walked 35 min today and just completed 12 min on the elliptical. I also plan to drag my son outside to walk our normal 10 min in the evening. So was the day a total loss??? No I just could have done so much better. I want to lose weight and the unneccesary picking I’m doing is for someone who is at or under goal and can occassionally allow a lapse. My weight has been wavering about 3 lbs up and down and I need it to go down! I know that fluctuations are normal but if I was doing the right things it would be consistantly going down not boucing back up again.
Can’t wait to start again tomorrow. I’m firmly telling my friend no to the granola bar and crackers, and plan to pack a more nutritious lunch like yogurt or cottage cheese.
Cheers to good health, lots of love, and lots of weight lost for all who need it!
