So I have to give an update of somesort I guess, huh? Good or bad? Really???? REALLY?!
Well fine, I will. It’s not good people. NOT. GOOD.
I lack self discipline. In a BIG way. And I’m a binger too…without the purging. I need to find a way to get some BALANCE. Seriously. And I need to revise some of my rules goals from before. But first, I’ll fill you in on my *progress* from last week.
Let’s see….my first night on the “plan” I did really well. I had one grilled chicken breast, two grilled zuccinni brushed with olive oil, and some pasta salad. It was DEE*LISH! The next day, filled up on the water and ate pretty good all day. By the third day, I was feeling stressed and tired and noticed I was slowly caving. Then I started thinking about my eating. I can’t limit my eating. I nurse a baby for crying out loud! And I have the other two to keep after all day. I need to eat, and a lot. But, I need to change WHAT I am eating. I need more snackable stuff around the house, like fruits and veggies and whole grain breads. I am not giving up bread. I don’t think I need to, but I do think I need to change from plain jane white bread to whole grains. It was stupid of me to set up a strict diet plan without preparing my surroundings…. like my fridge and cupboard. I set myself up for failure that way.
I did use my elliptical….one day. And really, I liked it a lot. I think I have come up with a good plan for that….NAPTIME. All three were alseep and I turned on the tv in the playroom and watched a movie while I excercised. I could go forever like that….watching a movie or something. And the elliptical is something I really enjoy. So, there is no reason that can’t be a continual thing….every other day. 😉
Now, the computer…. I have done pretty good with that. The first few days I did awesome, but lately especially at night again, I have been on a lot. I think b/c Jake is working nights I find it easy to get lost on here. I am SUCH a blogaholic. I need help. Seriously.
I can’t remember my other goals, which says a lot. 😕
Sooo….what am I going to do about this?
Well, tonight I am going grocery shopping. I am going to stick to the outer edge of the grocery store and stock up on fruits/veggies/lean meats. As a family, we love dairy, and I think in moderation dairy is fine. Like yogurt. The boys love yogurt. And cheese. I feel like I already do a good job with the boys….buying stuff that is low on sugar, high in protein, fruits, veggies….. I just need to do that kind of shopping for ALL OF US. And yes, we all could use a diet change.
Sooooo, after a trial run week to work out my kinks (well, not ALL my kinks haha) I think I have a good place to start off. So here is my revised plan:
Don’t buy crap. I’m going to load up on fruits/veggies/lean meats/whole grains at the grocery store. If we don’t have it in the house we won’t eat it, and vice-versa.
Continue with the water consumption….. and remember to buy more water. (we’re tap water snobs)
excercise, excercise, excercise with the elliptical.
Don’t beat myself up.
#4 is a biggie too. Yesterday I was BEATING myself up mentally b/c I felt like such a failure, and yes I tend to do that….focus on what I can’t do more than what I can. And reading everyones updates really sucked too b/c YA’LL DID SO GOOD! 😉 I know I can do very well too, it’s just getting out of the funk and not setting myself up for failure…..like not having the right foods in the house.
So, there it is. Enjoy. I’ll let you know next week how it’s goin’.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
