As I've written a few times in the last few days, I didn't have a stellar week last week. I ate way out of control. I admit it.. It is what it is....it's the past and there is nothing to do but to move on. I'm not happy with it, but I'm ok with it. As I also mentioned, my weight was up on my official weigh in day....Friday morning. Once again, it is what it is.....I may not like it but I need to accept it.
I accept accepted it but also looked deeply at what needed to be done to correct the problem. I weighed myself and decided immediately what plan of action I would be taking. Todd asked for Breakfast Pizza that morning. My recipe is really tasty...but kind of high in calories. One slice is about 315 calories. I will freely admit that I have eaten 2 slices and possibly even three before. OF all things caloric speaking, that's a lot of calories in one meal....almost my whole daily allowance! I sat down after my weigh in and planned out my food intake for the day. Dinner, lunch and breakfast. I planned out exactly how big my serving would be for our dinner meal. I planned my lunch and I got to breakfast. I had enough calories for one slice of breakfast pizza and some applesauce. I made the pizza and served it up. I served Todd his typical serving of two slices and placed my one piece on my plate. It was extremely tasty! I fought the urge...I wanted to stand up and grab another slice of breakfast pizza so bad! I went round and round in my head. My body was screaming at me that I needed that other slice. I was still hungry after all! My mind and my desire to be thin eventually won the battle and I cleaned up breakfast and went on with my morning, even though I was still a bit hungry. About an hour later I made a startling realization. I wasn't remotely hungry. I hadn't needed that slice of breakfast pizza after all!!!!
I was strict with my calorie budget on Friday and Saturday. On Saturday that lesson of not needing food that I had convinced myself that I desperately needed was replayed. My hunger is in m mind. I just need to remind myself that if I plan out my food with thought and care that what I plan to eat is honestly enough for my body! Easier said than done!
So it's Sunday evening......I rocked Friday. I rocked Saturday..and why yes, I did actually rock my eating today too!
I didn't exercise Friday or Saturday but I was active today. (Although I will admit that I wanted to cancel my morning walk with my friend.....seriously, it was cold out there! I didn't...nor did she!). So that's my next order of business....get that exercise back in line. (ok, so I actually exercised 4 days this last week...that's not bad.)
