Weekend Number 2 Since Making the Decision
Friday, February 11, 2011
So this will be the second weekend since making the decision to be healthy, exercise, and stick to the plan.
I have to admit, I feel like I "cheated" today.
What I mean by this is that I woke up with a migraine that began last night. I was tired, grumpy, and in pain. Not a good combination to start any day with. When I finally could function (after taking pain meds), I had no desire to try and think intelligently about packing a lunch or fixing a breakfast. I poured my cup of coffee and left early to get to the grocery store.
Once I made it to the grocery store I had a set plan. Buy food that will keep me within my calorie count. Breakfast Lean Hot Pocket and a Smart Ones Lasagna Lunch. Frozen Pizza for dinner.
The healthiest of days? I'm sure it wasn't. However what I needed was compete simplicity to achieve my calorie goal.
It also helps me to prepare for the weekend. Again, I have the same tips and goals. I know exactly where I am going out to eat tomorrow for lunch with family and plan on cruising the website for nutritional information first. Then I can accurately plan all of my other meals around that one in case I want to use a few more calories on that. However I've also learned that the best plan for me is to spread my calories fairly evening throughout the day or by the end of the day I'm ready to gnaw away at everything.
So this is my rambling. I didn't lose any weight this week, however considering the backsteps I took I'm satisfied that I didn't gain either. I do NOT want to go into a yo-yo effect either.
Here we go then. Another work week successfully accomplished. Now onto accomplishing another weekend. With this being my second weekend committed to the decision I've made to be healthy I'm hoping that it will be easier than the first weekend.
We shall see.
