What could I do better?

Friday, July 26, 2013

The good news: my weight has stayed the same for such a long time.
The bad news: my weight has stayed the same for such a long time.

So I need to ask myself why and the answer is simple. My exercise has remained consistent so that helps to control my weight but my eating all summer.....not so much. Too many picnics, parties, weddings and birthdays. Too much fast food, convenience foods and foods on the run.

I'm in the BLC22 challenge and if I'm going to have some results to be happy with, what do I need to do? Really simple, get back to healthy, mindful eating, get those freggies in, concentrate on grilled, lean protein, keep within my calorie range, cut down on empty calories and start eating good, healthy, God made foods. Can I do these things?
You betcha!!! emoticon

    Look on the positive side...your weight has stayed the same! That is such an accomplishment in and of itself. Don't ever lose sight of that!

    The ONLY way I stick with doing all your solutions you cam up with is to track at LEAST the day BEFORE I start to eat. I leave a little leeway in case i get a work out in, but i don't count on it when I plan. I tend to stick to my guns if I have actually entered the plan in the tracker.

    Do i veer from my plan? Sure life happens. But the choices I make as I veer tend to be close to my original plan. Like yesterday, I planned cantaloupe in my bok choy salad with 3 other fruits. So I just subsituted another fruit and didn't even make a change that showed in the planner.

    I could have said, well, I'm out of cantaloupe. I'll substitute dessert for those calories. That would have been off plan for me.

    Do you do advanced planning whether on paper, SP or some other method?

    Summers really do seem to disrupt the routine! You've listed some good ideas for getting back on track! Staying consistent with exercise is a very positive thing you've done even through the round of weddings and parties and visits from the grandchildren! You've maintained your weight through all of this and that is

    You can do it. Summer is hard with all of the picnics, weddings, etc. Joining that challenge will be a good way to get the results you want.
