First Time Here?




Today was a good day. I stayed on track again. Jason brought home some cinnamon rolls. They looked amazing, but I didn’t eat one!!

Today was not an easy day. I was hungry for much of it, and I’m actually starving right now. Well, maybe not starving. I didn’t each much because I wanted the rest of my pizza from last night. So I had 2 slices for breakfast and 2 slices for lunch. For dinner, I had 10 mini corn dogs. They did fill me up when I ate them, but the lack of protein today made it impossible to stay satisfied. I refuse to go over my calorie goal though. So, I kept reading my “Beck Diet Solution Cards” and I read the parts to avoid cravings and the hunger pages too. I keep telling myself that this hunger is NOTHING compared to the discomfort I felt while pregnant and/or the C-Section that followed. I can avoid eating until my calories reset tomorrow. The hunger will fade away and I will get so much better at it. Keep in mind, I did eat today and I ate enough. I’m just used to eating too much.

Today I stuck to my calorie goal. I only ate twice though. I’m not sure a day like today would ever be sustainable, but it did work today.

I stuck to plan today again. It seems to be getting easier, which is great. I'm home, and still staying on plan! When I go back to work next week, it will just be even easier. I can do this. I am really imagining myself doing this, and this year is going to be really awesome. I'm focusing on the eating part of this journey first. I am doing workouts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but I am not going crazy. I tell myself 15 minutes of some kind of movement for now. Honestly, today I grabbed my kettlebell did a few swings, then grabbed some light weights and did some reps. After that, I danced with Jolene a little, and walked in place. I just made sure I was moving for the full 15 mins. That's the plan for now, 3 days a week. I hate working out. I'm hoping as the weight comes off, I will start to enjoy it more, but we will see.

Today, was another successful day. I took on a bit of a different approach and it still worked out well. I didn't eat every three hours today because it just didn't work out that way. I had a small breakfast, and then after Jolene's nap I went to McDonald's for lunch. I counted it, of course. I went to a play date with Jolene, and when I got home I didn't know what I would have for dinner, so I decided to not have my afternoon snack and save my calories for dinner. I did this successfully, batted off cravings, and ended up having a great dinner, that allowed me some calories to have some chocolate afterwards. I ended the day a tiny bit below my goal.

Today, was a great start to the new year. I've decided to do my bullet journal digitally, and so far I am loving it. I'll share some screen shots soon. I am really enjoying it because it allows to me to make goals, and cross them out right from my phone, or Ipad. I can even use my Macbook to do it. It's pretty awesome. I do better when I have solid goals and planning ahead of me. I stuck to plan perfectly today. I ate every 3 or so hours, and wasn't overly hungry between. I think about food ALOT, too much. I am reading The Beck Diet Solution, and I am hoping to get some good techniques out of it. I totally believe in Cognitive Therapy, so why not. I have already done well on the whole, "No, I'm not hungry, I will eat in two hours" self talk. I turned down a chocolate bar today, and I didn't eat the chocolate donuts when I gave one to my daughter. It was a successful day today for sure, but it's the first day of the year. Day one. I have to make it through day one.

Today, I tried Weight Watchers new "Freestyle" Plan. I was on plan all day, and I was doing okay. Then, around 7 PM, I realized I was really hungry. I had eaten all of my points for the day, and decided to see how many calories I actually ate. I put all the food into MFP and it told me that I ate 1405 calories. No Wonder I was HUNGRY! I was lucky not to be HANGRY!! I decided at that moment that I would go back to MFP and say Good-Bye to WW for good. My loss calorie is at 1850. That means, WW wants me to take an extra 400 calorie deficit, not to mention that I ate OVER my daily points already. I ate 33, when my daily is 26. Come on now, that's just ridiculous. I don't understand how people can do it. So, I ended up eating about 250 more calories, and ended my day at a solid 1675. I know I said that I can eat up to 1850 for a loss, but I eat at Maintenance on Saturday and Sunday, meaning I go all the way up to 2300 on those two days, so to make up for that I try to eat below 1650 during the week. I say, try - because I don't have to. I can eat up to 1850 and be totally happy.

Today was not good. I knew it was going to be a tough day and I had a plan, kind of. Well, not really. We were treated to a lunch today at school, for the end of the semester/Christmas. I knew I was going to eat the lunch, it's free and I am not far enough in my journey to turn down perfectly good food. I don't ever want to be there though. There is no reason to have to turn down a free lunch. So, I decided I would eat less than I would normally && I did. However, it spun me out of control and when I got home I ordered Pizza for dinner. I had 3 slices, which I told myself only 2. I ended up eating over my maintenance calories today and I'm beating myself up over it. Tomorrow, we are going to have a class party with a ton of delicious goodies. I know tomorrow isn't going to be great either. I'll have these days though, and I will get past them. I will control myself tomorrow, but I won't turn down the food. I'm okay with this. I can fix it.

I did well today and resisted a few cravings. I felt more hungry between breakfast and lunch and snack and dinner. My morning snack had no protein and I am thinking that could be why.

Today was a great day. I messed up in the planning for my lunch. I bought something thinking it was 1 serving, but it was two. Instead of ruining the whole day, I just ate half and saved the other half for my afternoon snack. I started the day with my protein drink and ate every three hours. I had some cravings at night, but did not give in to them easily.
