Strong End Goals Week 1 Nutrition

Saturday, April 28, 2012


Portion control has to be a real focus 24/7. This is my biggest downfall and, I believe, the missing link for me along with tracking.

BLC 19 started on Wednesday. There was a great deal of emotion in this new BLC round beginning as I am on a new team and not in the den. A lot of tears and a heavy heart. I know that the Cougars are in most excellent hands and all is as it is supposed to be. God always has a plan right?

Last night started the weekend with chaos. Isn't that how life always is with a teen? How about finding out at 2:45 that there are a group of 9th graders who for a variety of reasons are not going/haven't been invited to the prom that night and are devastated? I had a short time to pull off an anti-prom event for them that would put smiles on their faces and magical memory making moments for what might have been not so pleasant memories for a variety of reasons. One young lady who is a junior, came along because she isn't going until her Senior Prom. She's "saving" herself. VERY special. In any case, it was frantic but my kind of party and I pulled off a good time for the girls!

Even though we did not stay in and have the meal I had pre-planned to make, I made good choices at the restaurant we ended up eating at when we became chauffeurs for five young teen girls unexpectedly. In the interest of my resolve for total honesty, I did have one glass of excellent chardonay. First alcohol in several weeks. Not having anything to drink hasn't been a big deal at all. I did savor the glass last night and had several glasses of water to go with it as well as a Traverse City Salad and a crab cake appetizer as my meal. PERFECT!

I prevailed and am off to good choices and a strong resolve to work it this round!

I did my meal plan and groceries today for the week and will be trying some new meals. Meatless Monday PLUS a few meals for me that are meatless. My carnivore sweetie won't tolerate that but for me I need to try some new things to see if I can bump up this loss as I go into the finish toward goal.

I am reading up on calorie cycling. I will be sharing more about that as I decide if it is too radical for me or not. I am real more about moderation and being able to cook and feed the entire family the same foods that I eat so it may not be doable.

So far, the road map is in place and I am heading into it with firm resolve, my GPS set and ready to car dance my way to the finish line!

    Anti prom sounds like a blast! It sounds like you're off to a fantastic start, too. Great job on keeping your wits about you while dining out! Now have one of those island mocktails and pat yourself on the back (or get a sexy bartender to do it for you...)
