Default 21 Days to Beat a Rut ... Day 1

Since I've found daily and/or meal planning threads and so on very encouraging let's try this. 21 days. Set you own parameters. I'm not even setting a goal. I just need to kick things up a bit. Stir up some enthusiasm.

There's no good reason for me to have an off plan day in 3 measly weeks. Is there?
Here's my general plan ...1400 cals of superfoods with 150 gms of protein (on average), some jogging in each daily walk and a four day weight lifting split with heavier weights.

Anybody in? It's only three weeks. Who knows what kind of new habits we can form!

And it doesn't matter if you're a day or 2 or 7 behind just find the thread for day 21
21 Days to Beat a Rut ... Day 21
and begin. There will always be a link to the next day, so that you can progress along with everyone else.

Are you ready to do some kind of assessment to see what you've learned?

I already know that this challenge has been very good for me exercise-wise.

Oh my gosh - are we nearly there? WOW!

Okay, here's what I've learned in three weeks:
DO NOT EAT IN FRONT OF THE TELEVISION!

ahhh, sure, okay... but HOW??? Weeellll...

1. If there are 'snacks' in the house, I am a LOT more likely to eat them in the evening in front of the the TV; thus, avoid buying dedicated 'snack' food, even if it is 'diet' or 'low-fat' - keep carrots, celery and hummus just in case. I am less likely to 'snack' on these, but rather incorporate them into a meal and feel satisfied and full.

2. Often eating dinner a little bit later helps if I am having an 'I-want-to-eat-the-whole-world-and-my-left-arm' kind of day. If I don't finish dinner until, say, 7:30 or 8pm, I am very unlikely to snack afterwards. (And the carrots, celery and hummus are great to tide me over until a 'later' dinner!)

3. (this is a good one!) Try NOT to sit in front of the TV six evenings a week! If I am walking after dinner, or sitting outside, I am a) less likely to snack, and b) generally moving more!!

So, overall, it was a small habit to break (but a major one for me!), and I hope I've done so - I THINK I have done so. I feel these three weeks were VERY worthwhile - thanks Susan!!

What about everyone else?

Heater

On the last day ... I'm going to bed as soon as my dryer is done ... 1578 cals with 133 gms of protein.
DH and I walked and I did legs.
I'll do a round up in the morning while I'm having my coffee.

Oh yes ... and I'll weigh myself tomorrow too.

Here's the link to the summary thread. Although Heather beat me to it. She did well, huh?

Sunday was a bad, bad day for me. I threw out anything logical that I know about healthy eating for the day. I think it was because I'd gone out to eat on Saturday night for my birthday, and knew my weigh-in was on Monday and expected a gain. So I must've psychologically decided that if I'm going to have a gain then that's my time to do a free-for-all. Bah.
