This weekend

This weekend was not such a great weekend in terms of food choices.  I went to a retreat this weekend and the food was GREAT (tasting)- not so great for you.  However, I had been making adjustments for that throughout the week and don't feel that I did too bad (although I felt yuck after eating).  I am sure it's going to show a gain on Tuesday but that means I get back on the saddle and start fresh on Monday.

So Excited!

I am so excited!  All the watching of the food is really helping.  Being conscious of the foods I eat are going to make a huge difference.  I have seen a loss of 4.4 lbs. this month.  While that may not seem like a lot it's enough of a jumpstart to get my body going!  YEAH!  Now, to keep up the momentum.  This weekend I am going to a retreat where I am unsure what the food choices will be so I will have to be diligent this week and early next week in the chance that my weekend choices will not be that great.

B-fast- yogurt and a jelly roll-up on whole wheat low-carb tortilla
lunch- chicken salad (chicken and m.w.), jello, no sugar added pears

A New Outlook

I have really struggled the last few weeks with staying motivated. Between not feeling well, frustrated because I know I'm not eating "great", and just a general blah and tiredness I have just not had any type of motivation to do anything. I feel guilty if I don't work out,I feel guilty if I do (lack of sleep), I feel guilty if I eat something remotely off SB, etc. I finally realized that I have been trying to focus on too much at the same time. I made a conscious decision that I was going to focus on one thing at a time for a week. For the first week it was getting back into eating right. I decided that if I made it to the gym during that week- great, if not then I wasn't going to beat myself up over it. I started writing down in my notebook everything that crossed my lips. And you know what- it's worked. I have been more conscious in my food choices and I don't feel like I'm killing myself to eat healthy. The next step will be to add the exercise in. I have a goal. I want to be down 8 lbs. from where I started the month. In the first week I gained three so I now have 11 but I'm determined!
